I think it's more the uncertainty of HMV's future that would have made them reticent in any further releases for the time being. The majority of their sales come from the high street

That makes sense, I forget that people still buy things from brick n mortar places (and at those prices!). Arrow seem to be doing the opposite these days with releases speeding up.

I know. It might not have been the case recently but there was definite confirmation from Almar on here who said that's where most of their revenue comes from. I was incredibly surprised although I could imagine the eye-catching covers inspiring a blind buy

The same thing happened with the gaudy VHS covers when I was young 'un looking around the local video shop so I can see this!

It seems the HMV website will be up and running soon so you never know, Shameless might rise from their slumber.

It does seem strange that most of Shameless's revenue comes from highstreet sales, in this day and age almost everyone I know buys their DVD's and Blu's online. I always kinda thought people would do the same with Shameless and Arrow titles, if only to avoid 'those' looks from the counter staff. It's like buying an adult title and saying it's for a friend!

You're not wrong there! For me though the incentive for online buying is the massive price difference between online and in store. I've always found it easy to resist impulse buys in hmv because of that.

I know what you mean, but I remember buying Strip Nude For Your Killer and they just grinned at me - maybe that's worse though!

I remember eye rolling from the shop assistant when I bought Oasis of the zombies and Zombie Lake dvds so I can imagine the grin when buying that!
