I wasn't referring to 3rd party disc releasing companies. Major studios is what I had in mind.

Where do you think some of that content comes from? MGM just did a deal with VS for a good batch of titles for example. They make money from these deals.

Major studios are releasing back catalogue in plentiful numbers because there are meaningful reasons to do so. Itís hard to keep up with all the catalogue releases.

Please point out the 3rd party subleased titles you are referring to.

Aside from that list you provided, studios make money from subleasing titles to these labels. You asked where was the motivation? They make money from regular catalogue sales and their more genre targeted titles get leased out. We are seeing that now with MGM and VS.

You carry on your little crusade though, I donít know what the point is but if it makes you happy?

Well some catalog stuff is clearly doing ok, otherwise it would be 100%+ down each week and not 20-60%
Itís obvious discs are driven mostly by new releases but there still hitting millions a week being driven by whatís essentially just catalog and I can imagine studios are more than happy with that considering there loss of theatre revenue currently


In theory once films start to hit disc again wouldnít we see figures be up most of next year ?

Yes. Stats will be compared to 2020. It depends on when the vaccine is administered. Normalcy may not return until late Q2 or early Q3 2021.

With all the new cancelations of first run movies, I have little faith in Q4 2020 being anything to write home about.

Question in passing, are the HD and 4K combined for units & $ in this chart?

My hunch is yes? Then when 4K are reported separately they would obvs be pulled out for that tally.

Yes to both. Notice Pitch Black. That is a 4K release.

No surprise. BD depends on new movie content more so then DVD for most of it's sales. No new movies = low BD sales.

Maybe also economics... less disposable income lowers overall demand, shifts purchases to cheaper DVDs.
