From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
TVShowsOnDVD.com is a website dedicated to cataloging, campaigning
for, and reporting news about Region 1 television series
releases on DVD. The site's slogan
asks "Is YOUR Favorite Show On DVD?"
The site began on November 1, 2001 and has expanded to accept
votes from registered members for over 10,000 television shows
throughout TV history. The site contains information on over 8000
TV-DVD releases - including full season, best of, and individual
episode releases. The site also posts thousands of news articles
relating to upcoming releases, reviews of TV-DVDs that are
currently on the market, and sometimes a list of alterations (such
as use of syndicated
episode versions and music replacement) to various TV-DVDs.
Users can create accounts to vote for which TV shows they would
like to see on DVD and compile lists of the sets they own and want.
The site currently receives over 75,000 visitors a day and has
official links with many major studios. The site also maintains an
feed, a blog, a presence on Twitter and a
Facebook fan page.
The site is very closely linked to Home Theater Forum. The
founder of TVShowsOnDVD.com, Gord Lacey, and the site's news
director, David Lambert, are both regularly posting members at the
"HTF" and were registered there prior to the creation the site they
work at. The HTF's "Software - TV Shows" section remains the
official message board of TVShowsOnDVD.com.
