I'm wondering if Netflix streaming, Hulu or even a video on-demand solution might not be a better option than approaching a cable channel. It seems that more people are switching to streaming formats to watch complete series as it allows them to watch on their own schedule without having to fiddle about programming their DVR, they don't have to wait until the reruns cycle back around to season 1, episode 1 and they can binge watch* instead of relying on a steady drip of one episode per day.

Of course, there would have to be some sort of awareness campaign that the series was available via streaming.

An additional upside is that Netflix, Hulu and Amazon are all looking at developing their own content. If B5 does well with them they might be interested in creating more.

*Which would definitely be in the show's favor
Got movies?
