Home Media Magazine

Home Media Magazine is a weekly trade publication that covers various aspects of the home entertainment industry, most notably DVD, Blu-ray Disc, and digital distribution. Also covered is news relating to consumer electronics, video games, home video distributors, Video on Demand, and Internet downloads of copyrighted content. The magazine includes reviews of new DVDs and Blu-rays and commentaries about issues affecting home entertainment.

The magazine was founded in 1979 and was known as Video Store Magazine until 2005,[1] when it became Home Media Retailing. To further its consumer focus, the magazine dropped "Retailing" at the beginning of 2007.

The magazine is based in Santa Ana, California, and is a subsidiary of the Questex Media Group.

HM produces several additional publications:

  • In July 2006, HM launched a consumer magazine called Agent DVD, which is a semi-regular periodical focusing on home entertainment news. The first issue debuted at the 2006 Comic Con International in San Diego, California, and focused on titles and news that would appeal to convention-goers.
  • HM also publishes a supplement called Hollywood Is High Def which focuses on the transition to HD home media, as well as 3D, as well as an annual "Women in Home Entertainment" issue.

Additionally, HM presents the annual Home Media Magazine Awards, covering the best DVD and Blu-ray products, and the Reaper Awards, focusing on the best horror-thriller DVDs and Blu-rays.
