Briefing: Homevideo

Sell-through is booming, rentals struggling. That’s the story of the U.K. homevideo scene, the third biggest homevid market in the world. Nonetheless, specialist vid stores are still blooming, with some 6,000 responsible for 70% of rentals, and the chains, like U.K.-based Ritz and U.S.-based Blockbuster, are expanding. Feature films account for 80% of the £605 million rental market and 40% of the £360 million sell-through market.
