Some fans sent JMS an email asking about that a year or two ago. He basically said that there was a lot of difficulty transferring it to a high definition format and that they would need to remaster a lot of stuff that is no longer possible due to the CG models and effects props being lost. His contract is also so shitty that any money made would go to them before he would ever see a penny (he was a big time victim of Hollywood Accounting).
I had no idea how successful Babylon 5 was BTW, apparently the franchise has grossed over 1 billion dollars for WB.
