ABUK DVD

Post by Treguard » Fri Nov 22, 2002 10:22 pm

Firstly thanks to all those who posted on the Anchor Bay UK forum :)

Anchor Bay over the last few days said they've been looking at procuring the rights to release Knightmare (most likely starting with Series 1 ). Anglia apparently weren't helpful, so it'd be a case of talking to Tim Child next......

Keep up the good word, Treggsie. Your thread is literally 'ruling' the AB forum at the moment.

Let's hope that Anglia stop sitting on their thumbs and do something.

It's a bit of a shame that Anglia actually hold the rights to Knightmare, and not Broadsword. Otherwise things would've been quite different, I'm sure.

Ok. Instead Anchor Bay need to contact Granada International as Tim has the rights to just the Knightmare Format.

I was told Anglia changed to/was bought out by Granada so i'm not sure why they still keep their name.

Hopefully if we're lucky they'll release it on both formats  ;)

I don't know if Anchor Bay deal on VHS. If not, then it's still worth having if you can't get to a player currently.

Let's hope so James if so I fail to see why I should buy things just for those that do own DVDs. Only fair that it should be released on both formats as both are just as common as you can see by the plentiful amounts on sale for christmas....

The trouble with VHS is, it runs out soon, the tapes go funny, it's not as good quality. Yet it's all I have anyway, so I don't see why not VHS as well. Unless the Anchor Bay company is a strictly non-VHS company...

VHS = Very horrific s**t.

(In terms of quality, it is).

I suggest we all unite and tell them we want it on both formats or we won't support it's release because their ignoring the needs of their customers otherwise. Yes, VHS has problems but I'm sure DVD is far from perferct as well.

Well, if the company doesn't release things on VHS, there's not much we can do. And saying we want it on both formats or nothing seem to be shooting ourselves in the foot, really. I'd love to see it released on both formats, and like others will campaign for that, but if it's a choice between DVD or nothing, I'd much rather support the DVD cause for those people who can enjoy it that way.
