    dont no if anybody has seen this but in todays Daly Telegraph i found this it looks like hollywood is cuting down the time with dvd cinema release dates they are now thinking of bring dvds at the same time as the cinema release instead of the 4 mths delay as it is now as hollywood now knows that dvds make more monny out of dvds than at the box office there is proof in this just look at the dvd about the life of Ray Charles that was out on dvd just 14 weeks after the cinema release that must be good news for us :clap: :clap: :clap: :thumbsup:

    I doubt they would ever release dvd’s in-line with cinema releases but I agree it makes sense to shorten the gap whilst momentum is strong.

    It'll certainly make PPV/SBO and then normal movie subscription channels look even worse value if the gap between those releases extend even further.
    Offering DVD via retail at the same time as rental in my opinion harmed SKY's subscription movie channels value to the average viewer.

    I heard that VOD services would be getting movies earlier which makes a lot of sense now if the DVD/Cinema release gap shortens.
