The first 50-minute installment was released to Region 2 DVD in Japan on February 10, 2006. OVA VII was released in Japan on December 23, 2009. The DVD included a teaser trailer announcing the eighth episode with a tentative release date of "Sometime in 2010".
The English release of the OVA series is licensed in the United States by Geneon USA. In producing the English dub of the series, Geneon used much of the original cast from the English dub of the anime, which Geneon also licenses. The first episode (OVA I) was released to Region 1 DVD on December 5, 2006, after premiering at the 2006 Anime Expo. In 2008, distribution of the Hellsing: Ultimate series was assumed by Funimation entertainment, although Geneon remains its licensor. Funimation released the fourth episode on September 23, 2008, along with a re-release of the first three episodes, since then; Funimation had released all of Hellsing: Ultimate in DVD and Blu-ray.
The first episode was released in Japan on February 10, 2006, and as of December 26, 2012, all ten episodes have been released. The first episode was released in North America on December 5, 2006, and as of December 2012, all ten English subtitled episodes have been released.
Originally, the first two OVAs of the series were broadcasted on Starz Edge's Animidnight programming block in 2008.  However, despite saying that episode 3 and 4 was gonna air, they were not broadcasted because of the fact that the 4th episodes was not ready with an English-language track yet, and eventually, they never aired anymore episodes since then.
The series began airing on Adult Swim's Toonami block on September 13, 2014, at 3:00 AM. However, due to rights issues; the show was announced to be canceled after just 8 episodes. They had later announced that they finally acquired the rights to the show, deciding to release the last 2 episodes of the series on Toonami on December 6, 2014.
The series took 6 years to finish due to multiple studios animating it. Over the years, they have changed animation studios on multiple occasions. Hellsing: Ultimate 1-4 were animated by the animation studio Satelight, before Madhouse took over for 5-7. It was then announced that a new company would be animating the final three episodes of the series; Graphinica x Kelmadick, though it is still being produced by Geneon.
2 years without any episodes of Hellsing: Ultimate happened between Volume 7, which was released previously in 2009, and Volume 8, which was released in 2011. In addition, this was probably caused by the change of studio; as studio MADHOUSE was announced to be replaced by Graphinica in 2010.
However, despite most of it being a clear and accurate adaptation of the Dawn; the ending of episode 3 completely diverges and instead, promoted Kohta Hirano's new manga - Drifters instead, leaving fans a little disappointed.
Also, the Hellsing TVA's next-episode preview sequences, where mostly Seras and The Spirit of the Hallconnen are talking; episode 5 and 6's preview adapts some of the Afterword manga; however, more accurately than the OVA - despite it being approximately 30 seconds long, and the end will some times say something like, "Hellsing will have a rain of blood", it still features some scenes that are directly taken from the manga, but colored or redrawn with their own style.
While they really aren't that different, episode 3 of Hellsing: Ultimate was heavily recolored in terms of the color contrasts, glasses, windows, etc. Despite the edit being mostly focused on changing the color palette of the OVA, there are many differences in terms of camera angles, re-edited scenes, re-drawn faces, bodies, etc., along with some VFX works being redone. They had also changed some backgrounds images to make it more consistent, in addition; Alucard greatly suffers from the time constraint; fortunately, the Blu-ray release fixed him in some spots, along with many other characters like Integra.
