Fox Home Entertainment Using CreateSpace to Issue MGM Titles

Amazon’s Cook-to-order DVD service allows distributor to mine hard-to-exploit catalog

Fox Home Entertainment is using the Amazon’s cook-to-order DVD service CreateSpace to mine the hard-to-exploit MGM library.

Fox is already taking orders for 27 feature films, TV movies and series locked away in the MGM vault (see list below).

Using CreateSpace allows the company to create individual DVD copies per order, rather than commissioning mass replication runs.

Here’s what’s being commissioned:
