Thumbs up New Digital Editions for Portable Devices of Home Media Magazine now available

For those that want to follow the only trade magazine we have on the home video market there will be a new digital edition available for free.

Plus Home Media Magazine is also doing some design changes to better fit on the iPad.

Also explains the new funky pie chart graphic this week with the new HMM logo.

Home Media – There’s No Escaping Us!

Honey, they shrunk the magazine!

Your next issue of Home Media Magazine will be a little smaller — but not by much. We’ve trimmed an inch off the top to make our digital edition fit perfectly on the iPad, since the booming tablet market, dominated by Apple, is giving digital editions of magazines a whole new life. (To see for yourself, click here and subscribe to our digital edition — it’s free!

We’ve also taken the opportunity to redesign the magazine to give it a fresher look. Thanks to our creative director, Melbert Sebayan, and his design team, Home Media Magazine is now easier than ever to read and digest.

As many of you already know, we’re also on Facebook and Twitter. If you haven’t already, I encourage you to visit these sites so you can “Like” and “Follow” us.

And coming soon will be smartphone apps for Home Media as well as a special “mozine” designed especially for smartphones, so you can get the latest news, reviews, commentaries, blogs and photos as soon as they are posted, no matter where you are.

It’s all part of the evolution of Home Media Magazine into the Home Media Group, our transformation from a weekly print magazine aimed at video retailers to an around-the-clock information source aimed at the entire home entertainment food chain, from content creators and producers to distributors, manufacturers, and of course retailers, analysts, the consumer press, and “super” consumers with a wide swath of influence through blogging or other means.

We were founded 32 years ago this month as Video Store Magazine, a selling tool for the studios as they pitched the concept of watching movies on videocassette to a wary retail base. We’ve grown up with the industry as these retailers established their own rental businesses, and the studios, eager for a bigger cut of the action, pushed a new and improved medium, DVD, directly to consumers to establish the even bigger sellthrough business that in 2001 overtook theatrical as Hollywood’s biggest source of revenue.

Today, there are more ways to bring movies into the home — or directly to consumers, one should say — than anyone could have imagined, even just five years ago. Home Media has been embraced as the voice of the industry, and with the industry going off into so many different directions, all at once, it’s critical for us to be everywhere, as well.

So that’s what we’re doing. Home Media’s voice is as loud, and as vital, as it’s ever been — and the more places you can hear us, the better.

Sweet! Where there be a way to easily search for false quotes?

And will you now have an iPad?

Eh. These are fun to flip through, but most of the news is old by the time it hits print.

You should just be in charge of posting every HMM article anyway. Seems this forum is nothing but positive HMM stuff.

We all know "magazines" and "newspapers" are all but dead in the coming years.

I used my mystical powers of persuasion with them so they could produce an iPad edition just for you there Giz. :tongue:


Considering they are the only trade magazine covering the home video market now and they publish all the stats we use weekly and publish on topic articles on line daily on the subjects we are interested in its hard not to post up their articles for discussion now isn't it?

I only post those articles I find interesting and on the topics we discuss here anyway. They produce weekly far more material than we could ever talk about if we wanted to under any circumstances.

I was being sarcastic.

HMM has always been free to qualified subscribers or free with its digital edition online to all.

They never have sold issues at all like any trade magazine.
