I would easily double dip, and buy all seasons digitally if they would just release it on VUDU. Don't think you can watch Amazon Video anywhere, and if you can, you can't easily look for certain scenes. When you fast forward or rewind, it doesn't show you where you're at like VUDU does.

And, I would also triple dip on the 2K series if they would just release proper season sets with all episodes in order.

I believe Shout Factory did express interest a few years ago in releasing 2K3, but Nickelodeon told them the license wasn't for sale (likely because this was still early on in the Nickelodeon cartoon's life and they didn't want to create brand confusion). At least, I recall SF's Brian Ward mentioning this somewhere (I can't recall where though). So there's a chance they might get the license at some point.

In my rewatch of this series, I keep thinking about how the 17 VHS tapes that I have of episodes that were released from the first three seasons isn't going to be a long term option. Once my working VCRs (that are part of DVD/VCR combos) stop working, that'll probably be the end for my VHS collection. I do have all of the episodes that were released ONLY on DVD after the VHS market completed died. But it just occurred to me that purchasing the first three seasons from amazon is probably my best long term option to have all of the first six seasons of the show available for me to watch whenever I want. Shows being released on DVD is dying market, and Nickelodeon seems to have absolutely no interest in giving this series a proper DVD release. Looks like this series is probably going to end up being my first ever digital purchase of a show/movie.

Edit: Though it appears that the third season is still not available as a "season" set yet. It's only available as individuals episodes. That's frustrating cause it could be nice to have the first full three seasons to be able to watch digitally, and then I could watch seasons 4-6 on dvd.

Whats the resolution like in these streaming episodes? HD? And do they include the commercial break "1-2-3-4! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!" animations?

If you have no clue what any of it means, it's 4:3 fullscreen, standard definition, just like the DVDs. Bitrate (i.e. level of "quality") is lower than the DVDs though. Audio quality is the same as the DVDs, which were encoded at 192kbps (which is the lowest you're "allowed" to go if you're distributing media).

Sucks about the format, though. I'd love to see these get an HD release at some point and online streaming seems to be the best way for it to happen.

I doubt the show was even produced in HD. Turtles Forever might have been, though.

Also take into consideration that it was also done in 4:3 aspect ratio. Any attempt to make it widescreen would either stretch it or cut stuff off.

Actually, the quality is still pretty good for SD. It looked great when I was streaming the episodes on my PlayStation 3 with the Amazon Instant Video app. However, some of the episodes had strange visual glitches and freezes in them, so I don't know if all of those have been fixed since they were first released in 2015.

Also, Season 3 on Amazon is a rip off because you can't buy all the episodes for $20, only individually for $1.99. I emailed their support a while back, and they said it would be the decision of the content owner (Viacom) to price it that way, when every other digital store like iTunes has it at the normal price. They said they would fix it, but that was in August, 2016.

Yeah I was fine with standard definition until I got an 80" television that I sit about 9 feet away from. Now I need everything in HD

Oh I wouldn't want to change the 4:3 aspect ration. Just clean up the image itself. Once you start trying to reframe things you end up in another Buffy nightmare.
