Default If OD has a poor Q4, will retailers scale back on OD in Q1 2012?

Will they?

Everything is pointing to OD falling yet again, and if so, will retailers cut back on OD space in retail stores to make room for more profitable items?

Do you think you could have given a few more options instead of the loaded word phrased choices you have there? Just saying. :wink:

I voted no, as no matter what happens in the Q4 2011 period retailers will not change much of the space allocation in the Q1 2012 period.

But there will be as usual seasonal changes early next year and obviously some of those seasonal allocations in the Q1 2012 period may be less space allocated that in the high volume holiday season in the fall in the previous 4Q. So any seasonal changes should not be assumed to be because of any observations of failure in the 4Q as they would probably occur no matter what level of success in the fall as part of normal seasonal retail variations.

I think more than likely DVD catalogs will be scaled back enough to cause OD to shrink as opposed to grow. Although BD will probably stay the same size or grow slightly.

Who knows.

There have been tons of store closures in the last 2-3 years and with less outlets with offering OD, there has been less of an impact to existing store layouts.

You mean Digital Copy? Warner is too embarrassed to even put ULTRA VIOLET on the slip covers for the two titles announced with UV Support.
