Come Tuesday, January 1, Silver Vision will lose its license for WWE DVD and Blu-Ray releases in Europe, Middle East, and Africa, with FremantleMedia Enterprises picking up the license.
FremantleMedia will be releasing new WWE discs approximately one month after the U.S. release, meaning that fans in the EMEA region will enjoy quicker delivery of their favorite WWE shows on both Blu-Ray and DVD. The company will also be offering a range of back catalog titles that were currently produced by Silver Vision as all rights are being transferred come the first day of the new year.
Silver Vision will be allowed to sell whatever stock they have remaining for a limited amount of time and they have already reduced a bunch of titles starting at just 4.99 GBP.
One additional item that FremantleMedia will be doing that Silver Vision couldn’t was to distribute all video in digital format although it wasn’t revealed yet how will they be distributing the videos digitally and for what devices.
Silver Vision had the EMEA license for WWE videos for the past 22 years and released hundreds and hundreds of WWE content from the early days of Coliseum Video.
