WWE DISCONTINUING PHYSICAL DVD RELEASES IN UNITED STATES

By Mike Johnson on 2021-12-03 16:05:00

WWE's home video releases, which began with the VHS format back in the days of Coliseum Home Video, will end this month for the United States, according to www.WWEDVDNetwork.com, which has long been a quality source for the company's DVD releases.

Their report notes:

WWE Home Video has had a physical media presence with DVDs since 1999, dating back further with VHS since 1985 (taking into account Coliseum Video). Over the years WWF/E would release their content on physical media via several formats; VHS, Betamax, Laserdisc, DVD, Blu-ray and even UMD.

The update sadly means 2021 will have been the last year for WWE Home Video in the home market, which includes Canada too since those releases were closely aligned with the US.

As for reasoning behind the move, while specifics haven’t been stated to us, the why is probably the obvious and in the end will boil down to revenue, coupled with the company putting less emphasis on DVD and Blu-ray in recent years and more of a focus on new content for the WWE Network and Peacock, whereby WWE content is streamed online.

The final slated DVDs for 2021 are the 2021 Survivor Series and a best of Drew McIntyre compilation.

DVD releases are still slated for Great Britain.
