Warner offers Archive Collection for download

Warner Bros.Warner Brothers has been digitally restoring their entire collection of motion pictures over the last several years. Now they are making their entire collection available to the public on www.warnerarchive.com for download or DVD.

Initially only 150 titles have become available, but the studio plans on providing their complete catalog of 6,800 films. Previously only 1,200 have been made available on DVD and 4,100 on VHS due to the limited market for these classic motion pictures.

The DVDs will be manufactured-on-demand so Warner will not have to warehouse product. This limited how many catalog titles could be replicated in the future due to cost of shelf space in retail outlets.

Future plans include bringing television programs and WB’s animation collection to the online store.
