NBC Home Entertainment

From Home Video


In the early 1980s, NBC Enterprises had secured a deal with Warner Home Video to issue tapes under the NBC Home Video label, as well as CED for RCA SelectaVision. NBC had also licensed some of its library to other distributors. After the end of the distribution agreement with Warner, the NBC Home Video label was phased out, with NBC giving hands to other distributors, most notably Starmaker Entertainment and GoodTimes Entertainment.

In 1996, NBC begin adopting the NBC Home Video name fully, including marketing. In 1999, the company had secured a mass-market deal with Trimark Home Video to license out the titles for mass-market. The label was renamed to NBC Home Entertainment in 2001. Lionsgate had inherited the label after purchasing Trimark, and other companies like A&E had adopted the label for DVDs.

The label was folded into Universal Studios Home Video in 2004 after NBC merged with Universal to form NBCUniversal.
