Region 1

All of the below are region 1 (North America) box sets featuring entire seasons of the show. As yet, no single disc compilation standalone DVDs have been released as they have with The Simpsons, Futurama and Family Guy.

The Complete First Season

This is the first King of the Hill box set, released on July 1, 2003. It contains all thirteen episodes produced (only 12 were aired in season 1, one episode was held over for broadcast with season 2) from the first season (1997) spread across three DVD-9s (single-sided, dual layer).

The set features Dolby Digital 2.0 audio in English and Spanish, and is presented in full-frame, with optional closed captions and subtitles in English and Spanish.

This set is the only one to present the episodes in production order; seasons 2 and onward were issued in airdate order.

Bonus features

The Complete Second Season

This is the second King of the Hill box set, released on November 11, 2003. It contains all twenty-two episodes from the second season (1997-1998) spread across four DVD-9s (single-sided, dual layer).

From this set onward, episodes were featured in airdate order.

Bonus features

The Complete Third Season

This is the third King of the Hill box set, released on December 28, 2004. It contains all twenty-five episodes from the third season (1998-1999) spread across three DVD-10s (double-sided, single layer).

After a four-month gap between seasons 1 and 2, this set was not released until 13 months after season two's release, in December 2004, after being initially scheduled for spring of that year; this delay was attributed to issues involving music licensing especially with the episodes "Love Hurts...And So Does Art" and "Wings of the Dope," each of which used two popular songs. This and the next three seasons are on dual sided DVDs (Three discs per set instead of the previous six). Special features were also dropped, perhaps due to a waning interest in DVD seasons in the series.

The Complete Fourth Season

This is the fourth King of the Hill box set, released on May 3, 2005. It contains all twenty-four episodes from the fourth season (1999 - 2000) spread across three DVD-10s (double-sided, single layer).

The Complete Fifth Season

This is the fifth King of the Hill box set, released on November 22, 2005. It contains all twenty episodes from the fifth season (2000-2001) spread across two double-sided and one single-sided DVD.

The Complete Sixth Season

This is the sixth King of the Hill box set, released on May 2, 2006. It contains all twenty-two episodes from the sixth season (2001-2002) spread across three DVD-10s (double-sided, single layer).

The Complete Seventh Season and The Complete Eighth Season

For unknown reasons, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment didn't release additional seasons of King of the Hill on DVD. In September 2014, it was announced[14] that Olive Films had acquired the rights to release the show on DVD, and would be issuing seasons seven and eight separately on November 18, 2014, with both sets having three discs each.

The Complete Ninth Season and The Complete Tenth Season

Olive Films followed up with their release of the two prior seasons with the ninth and tenth seasons, which were released on April 7, 2015, with two 2-disc sets.[15]
