New Video Group

From Home Video


New Video Group was originally founded in 1990 as a partnership between Steven Savage and Fox/Lorber Associates. Fox Lorber Home Video was the company's original label, followed in 1991 by a deal with A&E Television Networks, and another label, Reel Video. In 1992, Savage bought out Fox/Lorber's interest, and Fox Lorber Home Video was spun off as its own label, leaving Savage to continue New Video on its own with A&E Home Video as its sole label.

In 1997, the company secured deals with MTM Enterprises and NBC News to release its titles on videocassette. New Video's agreement with MTM soon quickly expired after Fox bought out International Family Entertainment, MTM's parent company. In 2002, it secured a deal with Weston Woods to handle mass market distribution of its video library.

Over time, New Video lost many of its clients. It lost its major client, A&E, after two decades, to Lionsgate in 2012. In early 2012, it was sold to Cinedigm, and in 2013, acquired Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment.
