Ever since the dawn of cinema people dreamt of being able to take the movie home and watch it at their own leisure. This month TWIG is delving into the formats that allowed you to recapture television, and create your own private movie theatres. The long storied history is filled with wars, betrayal, and innovation. No stone is left unturned in the great war to entertain. 8mm, 16mm, vhs, betamax, laserdisc, videodisc, dvd, blu ray, hd dvd, and now streaming all get discussed in detail.
What were the deciding factors of the format wars? What collectibles should you keep close with you at all times? The TWIG crew is cracking out their tube tv’s this month in honour of the building blocks of our nerddom. Welcome to the home media roundtable.
TWIG would like to thank it’s sponsors for making this show and others possible!
