Interesting. I wonder if they'll still be releasing rental videos as I would imagine those get a fair amount of use. I'm not sure whether i'm in favour of things only being released on dvd, but I guess sf stuff is a good genre to be released only on dvds as I'd imagine there's a higher percentage of viewers who have them.

Many studios are trying to get away from VHS rentals - they want to use either limited use DVDs or pay per view. Pretty stupid idea imho but gives them more control.

From my point of view, I will only buy new stuff on DVD. I only buy VHS if the film/whatever isn't going to be re-released (e.g. buying "Biggles" on Ebay). However, as long as the DVD is available, I don't mind whether the company releases a VHS version or not. The rental issue is a good question - I've rented Buffy/Angel on VHS (after buying a DVD player), since the DVDs weren't available until later.
