That link you have there is not to the tv series, but to the mini flim series that was a prelude to the sketchy tv series. This post here is for the tv series, not the better V and V: The final Battle 5 part mini tv series/film.

This 19 part series was axed, had no conclusion, a lot of major characters were pulled, budget was poor, to try and help ratings they tried to make it more action packed, alens strangely somehow lost the "robotic" sound to the voice after a few episodes, all in all it was a complete mess, cheesey but at the same time laughably compelling to watch.

It's £13.99 at Zavvi and an extra 10% off if you have a Virgin credit card.

It looks like its going to get re-released

The transfer quality is meant to be bad on this one. So it may be worth waiting to see if the quality on this one is any better.

I somehow doubt it, considering that the V TV series only had an august release in the UK, this boxset will I am sure just comprise of the existing transfers of V, The Final Battle & V: TV series in a bundle.

The cancellation of the TV series in the spring of 1985 appeared to have caught its producers by surprise, as the season ends with a cliffhanger. The TV series' single season was released on DVD in 2004.
In a variation on "Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome," the character of Mike Donovan's son Sean inexplicably aged 4-5 years between the miniseries and the weekly series, despite the fact that the weekly series takes place only one year after the miniseries ended. It is presumed that this was not a planned plot change, but rather just an age difference between the original miniseries actor, Eric Johnston, and Nicky Katt, the series actor.
Due to budget constraints, the weekly series reused a lot of action footage from the miniseries. This was especially evident in the Visitor fighter craft chase scene in the pilot episode, where nearly all external shots were lifted from the climax scene of the original miniseries.
In the original miniseries and The Final Battle, the Visitors' voices were given, among other post-processing, a pitch shift effect - to give them an otherworldly demeanor even though they looked (outwardly, at least) like normal human beings. This was dropped from the weekly series, evidently due to budgetary constraints. No explanation was ever given for the change; it was simply treated as if the Visitors never had unusual-sounding voices at all. However this did create a plot conflict, as in the miniseries, part of the plot involved simulating alien voices.

Yes thats been long rumoured, and will not be a conclusion to the tv series, instead being a sequel to the preluding mini series, so it will be taken as if this tv series never happened (and really it shouldnt!..its interesting for V fans, and lovers of B-movie style action, but seriously its naff!)

i am in awe of your knowledge.
