I'm pretty sure you can still find this on DVD somewhere, it would not be that difficult to get hold of on ebay or someone renewing their DVD collection.
I went to see it at the cinema 1st then I just had to buy the DVD the day it came out, Shane filmed it around and on the housing estate I used to live on as a kid so I had to have it in my collection! I think its well worth finding and having in your DVD collection if you are a Shane Meadows fan.
Channel Four and Film Four used to have a DVD distribution deal with a company called VCI (Video Collection International). In 2005, VCI merged with BBC video to create 2entertain. Channel Four felt that a distributor co-owned by a rival TV company may compromise their sales and that the BBC would have a much greater idea of what they were planning to make, as the production DVDs is done way in advance.
So Channel Four severed their ties with 2entertain and took up with a company called Lace in the summer of 2005. Many of Channel Four’s titles had been licenced for a set period, so they had to wait for them to expire, hence many of their VCI DVD releases were still available (and continue to be available from some suppliers) for a long while after.
What will eventually happen is that Channel Four will start to reissue these titles, through their deal with Lace, with some of them out already – PHOENIX NIGHTS, for example.
