Satellite Dishes is a compilation of host segments from episodes that Shout! Factory believes may never be able to be released in their entirety. It was released as Disc 4 of the box set Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXXIX.

A statement from Shout! issued as part of the announcement of Volume XXXIX reads as follows:
