Tigers on DVD or Video.

Post by DesinVienna » Mon Apr 27, 2009 3:51 pm

I hope that I am not failing to see the obvious but I have searched the site for Tigers DVDs or Videos. I am really surprised that the shop does not stock any footage of previous seasons, greatest moments or tributes to great players past and present.
I should be very obliged if anyone can help me in my quest. Surely there must be alot of archive footage around. For example, I would love to see a collection of Geordan's magical moments. This could be the fitting tribute in his testimonial season particularly following his 250th appearance.
If this issue has been discussed previously please forgive me. If you would be similarly interested then reply and perhaps we can do something about addressing this opportunity to celebrate our heros.

The problem is that the club don't own the broadcast rights to Tigers matches & therefore can't make DVDs of season highlights as I understand it.


The club can record the games and use the footage for their own viewing/analysis but someone like Sky almost certainly owns the public distribution rights to all match footage.

That unfortunately means that the club can't make their own DVDs and sell them to fans without first buying back the rights from Sky (who will have paid handsomely for those rights in the first place!)

I used to own a video of the season highlights for 2000/01 . When it became damaged , I contacted the shop to get a new one .
Horror of horrors , it was out of production and no longer available . It seems that only soccer dvd's are popular enough to warrant eternal production . Rugby dvd's have to be purchased at the time , or else they stop making them :smt010 .

Wasn't this why the distribution of unedited match DVD's (by a company whose name escapes me) had to be stopped? I seem to recall a few posters on here subscribing to a match DVD by post service, but that it had to be canned.
