In late 2005, after a few months of rumours, MRA Entertainment announced that they had obtained the rights to release the entire series of A Country Practice on DVD. They released Series 1 (1981 episodes) on four DVDs and the first part of Series 2 (1982) on six DVDs on April 3, 2006.

The second part of Series 2 and the first part of Series 3 were released on April 11, 2007. These two sets marked a change in the releases from fairly small collections to 12-disc sets, and also an improvement in the appearance of the box and case covers. That new format continued through the Series 5 box sets.

Magna Pacific Pty Ltd bought out MRA Entertainment in 2008. They had said that they planned to release Series 6 sometime in 2009, but we had no further information or ETA beyond that. The rights to release the episodes of A Country Practice on DVD were then acquired by Beyond Home Entertainment, which began releasing DVDs again beginning with the first part of Series 6 (1986) in April of 2010. This marked another change to the appearance of the box and case covers. (Personally, I miss the old look, but the new look also corresponds to a change to a less expensive packaging method, which means the new sets are significantly cheaper than the previous ones. I think I can live with the less-than-exciting packaging if it means more people can afford to buy the sets. ;-))
