A Petition To HBO: Release “24/7” On DVD

The four-part miniseries that was HBO’s “24/7 Penguins-Capitals: Road To The Winter Classic” ended Wednesday night with the Capitals standing victorious, but those of us who were captivated and moved by the brilliant job that HBO did on the show are upset that it’s over.

We noticed that HBO hasn’t released any of their prior installments of “24/7” on DVD. Frankly, that is unacceptable and the thought of not being able to relive this show for years to come is disheartening.

With that said, we want to start a petition to convince HBO to release “24/7” on DVD. We have no idea if they plan to; they might, but you can’t deny massive support.

If you’re in, please leave a comment below. We want to cherish this journey forever.

    I’m in. Best series ever.

    • Mike

      I’d purchase right now if it was available. In fact, that’s how I came across this… I was hoping it would be out there somewhere for me to buy. Even though my Pens lost it was still a great series.

    • CurtisW1981

      Hate Washington but it was a good show! Love to own HBO series!!!

  2. B

    Not a Caps fan, but so in. Great idea!

  3. Victoria

    I am 100% in to buy a copy or two of 24/7!

  4. Josh

    Beat dat beat up HBO!

  5. This has been the greatest presentation of hockey in cinematic form of all time. I’d buy this DVD five times over.

  6. Kaitlin Shafer

    I would buy a copy for me and a copy for my dad for sure. 🙂 GREAT gift and awesome to own!

  7. Scotty N

    I would buy it today!!!

  8. Rhea

    Count me in for several copies if it comes out!

  9. Michele

    I am so in.

  10. Jenna

    Count me in – especially if it contains “never before seen footage” of the stuff they lied and said they were going to show in previews for the second episode.

  11. Scotty N

    I would buy this tonight

  12. Mike

    In! No doubt!!

  13. Erin Mancini

  17. Gabi

    I’d definitely buy a DVD of the four episodes. I’d be ecstatic if they also included Deleted scenes and extra interviews with other players.

  18. Mimi

    this is a no brainer.

  19. SDCinDC

    I am so in!

  20. Dan

    HBO will be “sh*t bums” as put by Boudreau if they don’t release this on DVD.

  21. Tracypep

    Count me in…24/7 is awesomesauce!

  22. Jeff

    I’d love it.

  23. Rosey

    Come on HBO. That footage on the cutting room floor is a goldmine. I’d pay anything for more behind the scenes stuff, even if it’s just hours of watching Crosby tape his stick or Backstrom chat with 6 year olds.

  24. Becca

    Doooooo it!!!! I don’t get HBO, but I would totally buy the DVD series.

  25. Lauren

    YES YES YES TIMES A BILLION!!!

  33. SHERRY

    SO IN!! SIGN ME UP

  34. Quincy Y

    Definitely! And with lots of extras!!!!

  35. Christy Walker

    I’m in. Loved it!

  36. Steph

    I would definitely purchase this!

  37. Jim H

    Absolutely! (Especially since I don’t get HBO and we know the happy ending.) And toss in a “making of” bonus feature, if it won’t delay the works too much. And while we’re at it, how about the NHL releasing a “Winter Classic” DVD (including the alumni game and Hershey victory over the Baby Pens!).

  38. Mischa

    I’m in!! I’d buy it for sure.

  39. Jennifer

  44. Tara

    Count me in! I just assumed the DVD would be my Christmas present next year!

  45. Darby

    Yes! My brother doesn’t get hbo and hasn’t seen this series. If they release it I’m buying at least 3 box sets.

  46. Jason B

    I would buy it on blu-ray! Even my coworker from Texas, with no understanding of hockey, had high praise for the series. It is a seller. What a story arc. Great production. The series has already spawned so many memes. Keep the ball rolling HBO!

  47. Kelly

    Yes, please!!

  48. PLEASE HBO! I need this plus the winter classic game all in one box set! i’d wait in line at Best Buy like it was black friday all over again!

  49. Drew

    I’m in! Something that Pens and Caps fans can actually agree on!

  50. Cameron Lopez

    YES!!! THEY HAVE TO RELEASE THE DVD!!! THEY DID SUCH A GREAT JOB WITH THE WHOLE SERIES THIS YEAR AND IT NEEDS TO BE MADE AVAILABLE FOR CAPS FANS, PENS FANS (fags *cough *cough), HOCKEY FANS, AND FANS OF GOOD/WELL DONE DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKING!

  59. Darby

    I can’t believe the option to put this series on DVD doesn’t seem like an option as of now. I was planning on buying at least 3 copies for myself and family. This needs to happen!

  60. Darby

    I’ve sent an email to HBO requesting the DVD and suggest people do the same if we want anything to happen. You can send your request here:

    http://www.hbo.com/#/about/contact.html/

    Couldn’t hurt, right?

  61. Dave J

    please do, Great Idea!

  62. Lisa

  64. tom

    In a Hockey players voice…….

    “FUCKIN RIGHT”

  65. Rich

    I’d buy one for myself and get more to give out as gifts.

  66. R

    “If you want it, don’t just THINK you want it; go out there and F#@%in want it!!”

  116. Wil dufont

    Like many, I am a big fan of the hbo 24/7 series. I came about to this site because I was looking to buy some of hbo’s 24/7 boxing series, but unfortunately I couldn’t find any, which I thought was odd because they’re such good documentaries that would last for a lifetime

  117. Dana Larson

    Please PLEASE release it on DVD!!!!!!!

  118. Celeste

  126. Daniel Ridgway

    YEs!! I know many people that want to buy one!– here in CA!! it is a must have!!!

  127. Jessica

    I think it’s totally pointless to have such a phenomenal series and then NOT release it on DVD. People are begging for it, Caps and Pens fans alike. Not to mention, I pretty much think about something from the series at least once a day and then wish that I could watch it. But alas. I cannot. Thanks HBO. Thanks for that.

  128. Chris koner

    I dint know how long I can keep this series on my dvr and still keep my girlfriend. Please release 24/7 penguins/capitals on DVD and/or blu ray.

  129. Diah

    love this! yes to dvd!

  130. Marty Lacombe

    I would not even hesitate to buy this as soon as it’s available.

    RELEASE THIS NOW!!!

    Please 🙂

  131. I pretty much need this to compliment the WBS “Chasing The Dream” set, right? Especially because I’m a Caps fan (oh the taint.)

    I’m in!

  132. Leigh

    I will definitely purchase a copy. LOVED the series, hope they pick two different teams next year and follow them for a couple of months.

  133. Tammy Bristow

    I would definitely buy this. I’ve been looking for it!

  134. bwitch16

    Please release this beauty on DVD, with all of the deleted scenes. It would be awesome.

  135. Carolyn Ferguson

    In!! Hope this works. I have it on DVR. It takes up too much room but I CAN’T get rid of it unless we can buy it on disc!

  136. yuknowho

    I’m in!

  137. Tim

    I would love to have 24/7 on DVD. It provided great insight into our team and sport we love!

    My boyfriend has been checking like crazy, waiting for this DVD to be released. When will it be released??!!!

  143. Amanda

    DO IT! I AM SO IN!

  144. David

    No brainer! HBO could make so much $$ off this b/c so many people would buy it. Win-win!

  145. sara

    i was just looking to see if i could order it online. I loved it so much i wanna watch it again. But then i came across this petition. So i guess i cant order it lol. I think it’d be silly of them to make it unavailable to buy.

  146. Aimee

    I’m in! Would love to buy a copy of it!

  147. mark gellard

    i would buy it now if it was on DV….great series

  148. lordoftherink

    It seems that there is now a page on the HBO shop website listing the 24/7 series as a DVD release. (http://store.hbo.com/247-penguinscapitals-road-to-the-nhl-winter-classic-dvd/detail.php?p=300305) No boxart, price, or release date yet. Judging by the comments on the page, it has been up since May. Not an official announcement or anything, but it’s nice to see. For comparison, this is the only 24/7 series with a listing on the HBO shop, so it does not seem that they just create a page for everything they put out. It would seem (although I don’t want to get too excited yet) that HBO might have plans for a release. It might be too late for an announcement for a summer, off-season release date, but perhaps to coincide with next year’s Winter Classic between the Rangers and Flyers? It would make sense, seeing how they could advertise it while the new one airs. Will certainly buy if/when they release it, especially looking forward to any bonus features they might include in the set.

  149. Kayla

    Release it please!!!

  150. Gwen

    This was SO Amazing…. Please release for retail!!!

  151. clarke

    bring it on!!!! I need it!

  152. Steve

    I’m in, as a Pens fan I enjoyed what I saw of this series and would love to own in on DVD.

  153. jasmine

    i would love to buy this. unfortunately i missed it on tv so i have yet to see it!

  154. PENSFAN325

    I thought I read somewhere that they were releasing this footage but I can’t find it anywhere. Was that just a joke? I TOTALLY want this series!

  155. Paul Zilek

    I’m from overseas (Germany) and would buy this masterpiece immediately…
    Please HBO…. publish it on DVD….

  156. Jamie

    HBO, take my money!

  157. Thomas Chapman

    It’s a crime it isn’t on DVD, I’ve been searching everywhere to get my hands on all of the Boxing series and no luck! HBO – pull your finger out and stop denying us a chance to have these forever!

    You’ll make a killing in sales too! What are you waiting for?! …Oh and make sure it’s available in the UK too please 🙂

  158. Bill

    Available for pre-order now at the HBO store, shipping in November.

  159. Betsy

    Definitely would buy copies when available!

  160. Kelsey

    Please release 24/7

  161. Each and every week there are new movies on DVD made available to the public. Keeping watch of the DVD new releases can therefore be exciting, because there’s always a new batch right around the corner. When you’re looking to add to your collection with a few new release DVDs, be sure you search around for a store or website with the best selection and with the best prices.

  162. Tobias Lindeberg

    I would buy it! from Sweden!
