This is what i hate about companies like network - cant they take the effort to put subtitles? they claim to spend so much money restoring these serials but are so stingy spending the extra money that will only boost sales.
add one more series to my ever growing list of serials i am unable to buy because of this. the sad part is all those serials are sold by network. high time someone bans them from making these serials and depriving viewers

Talked with Network about this, and they tell me that the cost of creating subs for relatively small sellers like these oldies is not feasible. Sales of these titles are comparatively small, compared to mega-sellers like Harry Potter and current popular television shows.
Considering a feature film requires subs for 2 hours, and two seasons of a show like this requires subs for nearly 26 hours. Time consuming? You betcha. I'm currently doing subs for a 20 episode Asian television series, which will total over 11,000 lines of text. Not done in a week. And you can bet that those who write, proofread, time and synchronize those subs are not minimum wage workers.
With sales already modest, the additional sales that subs would generate would not offset the costs associated with their creation. Labels like BBC have deeper pockets to absorb such costs, but many independent labels like Network do not.
Unfortunately, some HOH or non-English speaking customers are left out, but that's economics. DVD labels are businesses, not charities.
