HP manufactured dvds on demand? Awesome!

This was announced January 24th 2008, so you may have already heard about this, but since I haven't heard of it then some of you haven't earlier. Plus I think this will be great.
HP (Hewlett Pakard) has went into the dvd buisness or actually the hard to find media buisness. Everybody has a dvd they want that has not been released. We are all stuck watching this media on antiquated equipment(VCR). HP has fixed that.
HP announced the 24th of January 2008, that Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has licensed a vast majority of there library for production through HP's new DVD on demand. This made Sony Pictures the first major studio to team with HP. Other Major Studios should follow Sony's lead.
I don't know about everybody else but I think this is great. The chance to buy movies that time forgot on DVD like "What Did You Do In The War Daddy" is simply amazing. There are lists of dvds all over the Internet requesting their release, my only hope is that they will offer the ones I want too.
First Sony will be releasing these types of media and I'm sure this is only the beginning.

  • Classic and older TV shows never before released on DVD
  • Foreign movies
  • Productions for specialty genres such as religion, education, lifestyle, health, food and sports
  • Specialty cable TV programming
  • Independent movies
  • Recently broadcast TV shows and sporting events with high relevancy in specific geographic markets or within specific consumer segments.

The list of media being released has not been finalized yet. Here is the link to the Press Release.
