amazon logo   Amazon Launches A New Never Before On DVD Store That Will Never Run Out Of Stock [Updates]Is DVD dead? Amazon doesn’t think so. In an attempt to bring DVDs back into awareness, Amazon has launched a new store, dedicated solely to DVD releases that have never been released for DVD before. The store, with the suitable name of “Never Before On DVD”, includes over 2000 movie and TV titles that were never released on DVD before now.

The collection includes classic Disney films, classics from the Warner Archive collection, older seasons of shows like Survivor and The Amazing Race and classic TV shows such as Night Court. Most of the titles are either too old or too unpopular to have been released on DVD before, but there are sure to be some great finds, especially if you like classics.

The new store is based on Amazon’s CreateSpace DVD on Demand service, which allows Amazon to manufacture the DVDs only when a customer makes an order. In this way, Amazon doesn’t have to stock up on DVDs, and can promise consumers that these DVDs will never run out of stock. If you want one, you can buy one, no matter when.

According to Amazon, some of the titles available in the store are also available via Amazon’s Instant Video and Prime Instant Video (which recently started offering titles by Paramount Pictures as well), but if you’re a DVD buff, or if you’re not in the U.S. and therefore can’t access Instant Video, these DVDs can be a great way to watch some of your favorite classics again.

Do you plan on buying any new DVDs?

DVD is not dead, neither CD´s. I still buy them.

I actually bought a whole set of DVDs two years ago, but that was the last time I bought any. I haven’t bought a CD in many years. But I agree, they’re not dead yet!

DVD’s are not dead by a long shot but I think blu-rays are starting to steadily eat away at DVD’s dominance in the market. Not everyone can or wants to stream movies online. I personally would like to keep my movies to watch over and over, without paying for them again.

And besides, these days, when you buy a DVD or Blu-Ray, they normally offer a legal digital copy that you can download too (although it’s often tied to iTunes which sucks!)

And don’t forget the fact the legal streaming of movies is still a very restricted thing. I, for example, can’t legally stream or download movies and TV shows. There’s simply no way to do it here. So for many countries, it’s either pirating or DVDs & Blu-Rays…

A few weeks back there was a film I wanted, but it was old enough to be only sold on VHS, so I watched it on Youtube. Now Amazon launches this, and it just so happens one of the titles was the one I was after.

That’s pretty awesome! Which movie was it?

It was “Masterminds”, as featured in a MUO article about films that don’t understand technology. I love cheesy films, and that one is about as cheesy as it gets.
