MGM HOME ENTERTAINMENT DELIVERS INCREDIBLE VALUE WITH EXPANSIVE LINE OF MULTI-FEATURES
All-New MGM Movie Collection Multi-Features Available Just In Time for the Holiday Season
LOS ANGELES, CA (August 12, 2010) – MGM Home Entertainment today announced that it will be launching a bold new line of multi-features to reveal the MGM movie library as it has never been seen before. Beginning October 5th, fans can purchase blockbuster titles in packs of two, three, four, six and ten, offering hours of home entertainment at an affordable price.
MGM Movie Collection multi-features will be grouped into 18 genres, including action, comedy, romance, westerns, kids and sci-fi, along with classics, drama, thriller, mystery, horror, war, 80’s, sports, urban, family, musicals and the ever popular Midnite Movies. These clever groupings allow customers to purchase movies that are enjoyable together at a cost that is well below what would be paid if they bought each title separately.
