Sentai Filmworks to Phase Out DVDs by 2019
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Sentai Filmworks announced on Monday that it will gradually phase out DVDs from its product lineup by 2019. However, the company will offer DVD releases for second or third seasons of titles that it has already released on DVD.
The company will release older titles on DVD that have no existing Blu-ray Disc materials. Sentai Filmworks will design future premium box sets to house Blu-ray Discs only.
The company is running a "DVD-to-Blu-ray (#DVD2BD)" promotion that is offering a free Blu-ray Disc player to people who spend at least US$299 on products through its online store. The promotion launched on Monday, and it will end on September 30.
