As I seem to remember, the idea of offering pre-recorded movies on VHS
tape was first started by an independent company back in 1980, as it was
already understood that most early-adopters who owned the first
recordable tape machines were using their first "big" tape-practice
to....tape movies off of TV. (Usually "2001".)
....Owning movies on a permanent living-room shelf is TRIBAL.
