DVDEdit

DVDs of Charmed were first released in 2005, after overcoming licensing issues with the commercial songs in individual episodes.

The first seven Charmed DVD sets contain no special features in accordance with Paramount's "no extras" policy, and much to the chagrin of both the fans and of Charmed executive producer Brad Kern, who had stated many times that his efforts to persuade Paramount to include some form of extras were unsuccessful. This changed in 2006, when Paramount's television DVD department was taken over by CBS, resulting in a promise that the last Charmed DVD box set would contain bonus material. Ultimately the region 1 Complete Series DVD box set (that looks like the Book of Shadows) has a special disc that has bonus features about the Book of Shadows, the demons, the men of Charmed and others. It also includes the Unaired Pilot in high quality but with the background music of 1x01.

The Season 8 DVD box set contains an instrumental song replacing "How Soon Is Now" in the opening. The reason why is because Charmed lost the rights to the song and was never able to reclaim them. Brad Kern however tried to get the license back for releases in region 1 but failed to do so. Also every Complete Series DVD box set has the instrumental song for season 8, seasons 1-7 still have "How Soon Is Now"
