lol, I was going to post about that.
I mentioned this over on the guest star sightings thread, since Bryan Cranston was on B5!

It used to be on Hulu and WB took it away to use on their competing "" streaming service instead.

This would be the most logical course of action. We could lobby Netflix, as they already have a relationship with JMS.
It's my understanding that one of the reasons Netflix financed Sense8 was because Babylon 5 was one of their most popular streaming shows when they used to have it. I'm guessing WB put a stop to that streaming service as well...
