Fernsehjuwelen ("TV Jewels") reissued the Network Complete First Series and Complete Second Series for the German market. Network's first series set was 5 Blu-ray and 2 DVD, but Fernsehjuwelen puts the 2 DVDs together onto a single 6th Blu-ray. Fernsehjuwelen promoted the episodes as "extended versions", but they are only extended in the sense that the original German broadcasts were all cut.

The initial covers credited "Martin Landau - Barry Morse - Barbara Bain - Nick Tate" on both boxes (including Year 2, which didn't feature Morse). On release, the Year 2 set credited Catherine Schell instead of Barry Morse. The Moonbase photo disappears into the lunar craters at the edges, and the computer generated Eagle is a little disappointing.

The soundtrack has the same DTS-HD 2.0 English track as Network, plus a German language DTS-HD 2.0 track.

There is a 24 page booklet by Dominik Starck.

The complete box set of both series was DVD only (16 discs), as was the movie box set (4 discs). See movie details
