British Comedy Guide

Universal Playback

Playback release some of the more well known older British sitcoms. They're a terrible company in our opinion - in the past they've ignored most attempts to get in touch so don't expect a reply - and are very slow at bringing out follow-up series. Quite a few sitcoms (such as Just Good Friends) they have frustratingly stopped distributing mid-way through the seasons. Universal Playback is part of Comcast.
