All seasons of Seinfeld have been released on DVD by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Unlike some other 1990s sitcom DVD releases, they contain quite comprehensive extras, including commentaries, a trivia track and short featurettes on a number of episodes. The seasons have been sorted into 'volumes' for their DVD release, with seasons 1 and 2 forming 'Volume 1' (a total of 18 episodes) and each subsequent season was released in a single volume.

While the box sets listed below are the predominant retail versions, variations have occurred:

  • Seasons 1, 2 & 3 were available in a gift set which came with a script, salt and pepper shakers and a napkin dispenser. In Australia, it was only available with season 4.[1]
  • Seasons 5 & 6 were available in a combined box set, which also included a miniature replica "puffy shirt".[2]
  • In Australia, some retailers provided a bonus Seinfeld soup flask with the Season 7 set,[3] in reference to "The Soup Nazi" episode.
