Urban Vision Entertainment's director of sales, Rhona Medina, has provided ANN with the following statement on Wednesday to address the anime distributor's current status and the availability of its titles in home video format:
Right now Urban Vision Entertainment has been going through restructuring our business model and operations. Given today's economic climate, physical distribution of goods has become riskier — just look at the companies that were devastated when Musicland threw it in. Thus, we've been working more towards broadcasting and online avenues of distribution — such as Amazon on Demand, Netflix, and YouTube.
While our DVDs may be harder to find right now, we're working on ways to improve our distribution.
