    The articles feature the same info...here it is!

    Continuing its aggressive quest for content, Lionsgate has entered into an agreement with Disney-ABC Domestic Television to distribute to the home entertainment market a selection of prime-time series and library titles.

    Season one sets of the sitcom "According to Jim" and the supernatural dramedy "Reaper" are first on the release agenda, coming to DVD on Oct. 21 and Nov. 4, respectively.

    The deal is the third TV DVD distribution agreement Lionsgate has cut in the past month, coming on the heels of a first-look partnership with Comcast Entertainment Group that gives Lionsgate distribution rights to programs on E! Entertainment Television, The ****Network and G4. More recently Lionsgate acquired the home entertainment rights to Marvel Entertainment's animated series "Wolvering & The X-Men."

    In addition to "According to Jim" and "Reaper," the Disney-ABC Domestic Television deal also includes popular sitcoms and dramas "Hope & Faith," "8 Simple Rules ... for Dating My Teenage Daughter," "Boy Meets World," "October Road," "Kevin Hill," "My Wife & Kids" and "Six Degrees," among others.

    "As evidenced by our recent activity, we continue to look for key brands to expand and grow our TV DVD business," Schwartz said.

    Since this is Lionsgate's third deal this month, I persume this is a great sign!

    Great news! The article I was sent through Google alerts says that they will release the first season of Accoring to Jim and Reaper first. I hope they have more news soon on the rest of the shows.

    I'm hoping for a late November release but if we don't get that, it'll probably be in the first couple of months of 2009.

    Funny enough, I was just watching season 3 yesterday, lamenting the fact we'd probably not see the rest of the seasons

    I don't know if I would count on it. Maybe just maybe if we are all really lucky we might get it by Christmas. But I really doubt that.

    Actually I don't care though, I'm just glad I'm gonna have the series on dvd and they are all legal. I feel bad for the people who bought those cheap versions they sold online.

    great news, now i just have to find Seasons 1-3. I watched the show a little, but my parents stopped watching it when i entered the 4th grade in about 96 there abouts to watch something else on, don't even remember the name of the show and since then I havn't been able to catch it. I started watching it again and now need to find the first 3 seasons, and then get the 4th. Though just a question when does the show come on TV anymore, I've been watching it via a site called surfthechannel.

    Boy Meets World no long airs in America. Surfthechannel is pretty cool. It's low quality recordings off the TV, but at least it's something for those who don't have all the eps. You can get the first three seasons on DVD (and therefore high quality) from Amazon.

    About time someone pulled this off.It's been such a long time since Season 3's DVD had released.I had been surviving off the TV-Rips for far too long now.Hopefully they bring it out soon enough.Kudos to Lionsgate if they confirm this release.

    Season 1 was originally supposed to have deleted scenes, bloopers and other extras. Hopefully Lionsgate got a hold of some of that stuff.
