Media Home Entertainment

From Home Video

History[edit]

Media Home Entertainment was originally formed in 1978 by Charles Band to distribute its titles on videocassette. In 1980, Band left the company to start out Wizard Video.

In late 1983, the company was sold to Heron Communications, and in 1984, MHE purchased The Nostalgia Merchant which became its nostalgic label, with some of MHE's nostalgia-themed titles moved to The Nostalgia Merchant, in exchange for Nostalgia Merchant's catalog of 1970s-1980s movies being shifted to MHE, and launched Snoopy's Home Video Library for its titles of Peanuts material, Private Screenings for erotic titles, and Music Media for its music titles. Also that year, the company had secured a deal with German-based VCL Communications whereas Media distributed titles by VCL, before passing on to Karl-Lorimar Home Video and Continental Video in 1986 after the deal lapsed.

The company stroke big in 1985, when it partnered with Cannon Films, whereas Media would distribute its Cannon library onto videocassette. Also that year, the company begin using the alias "Luna Video" for distribution of Private Screenings' titles.

In 1986, Heron Communications launched more labels, Condor Video for Spanish titles, Cinematheque Collection for art titles, Hi-Tops Video for children's titles titles and Fox Hills Video for sell-through titles. In 1987, Heron began distributing titles by NFL Films. Also that year, the company signed a deal with Video Treasures to market titles for the budget market. In 1990, Private Screenings was rebranded under the umbrella of Luna Video.

In 1991, following the Heron scandal, Media Home Entertainment's titles started to be distributed by The CBS/Fox Company. Video Treasures continued to distribute the company's budget-priced catalog, and Image Entertainment continued to distribute laserdisc releases. Additionally, Morgan Creek's titles were transferred from Media to CBS/Fox. Heron would later sell Hi-Tops Video to Western Publishing Company, Luna Video to III Star Releasing (and it was reverted back to Private Screenings) and Cinematheque Collection to Xenon Entertainment Group in 1991.

The company soon lost the licenses to the NFL Films titles to PolyGram Video in 1992 and the Kathy Smith titles to A*Vision Entertainment, and the company as a whole went defunct in 1993.
