The DVD is expected to begin shipping around Dec. 1.
"Everyone was working themselves into a froth," Radiohead vocalist Thom Yorke writes on the band's site. "They told us they could get us our own station. It was very exciting. We were going to take over the airwaves. So we set about putting together some television. We got lots of tapes from a request we put on our Web site. Lots. Lots and lots. We also generated some television of our own to avoid going stir crazy in the studio."
"Now you can watch it when you want, and maybe actually see it properly as well," he continues. "It contains music from 'Hail to the Thief' etc., and all sorts of other stuff from us... videos you may not have seen, and unreleased music that isn't out anywhere else."
Radiohead played just one North American show this year at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival but has already been mentioned as a possible headliner for the prospective Field Day 2005 festival, which is being eyed for July at a site about 45 miles outside of Albany, N.Y.
