Navarre to Complete Its Exit Out of Home Video Distribution
posted on by Joseph First
The North American distributor Navarre has announced that it will complete its exit out of the home video business on December 31. Navarre will continue to distribute several select lines on Navarre.com until the end of the year or until it identifies "an alternative distributor." Funimation is one such company.
The anime company Funimation told ANN that Navarre's move will have no effect on Funimation's anime releases. Scott Lonski, Sr. Communications and Event Manager with Funimation, added that all of Funimation's largest accounts have already been moved to other distributors.
Navarre cited the "changing retail environment" as the reason for its withdrawal from the home video business.
