    Caught most of the Chuck Jones special last night on HDTV, incredible!!!
    Then at the end of the show PBS comes on saying you can buy this show on VHS?!!?!?!?
    After watching it on HDTV, why in the world would anyone buy a VHS tape of it?
    Anyways it wont be on again until Nov 22, I marked it on my calender

    The possible reasons I could think of:
    1. It is cheaper to produce copies in VHS
    2. There are still more households that own and use a VHS player compared to DVD players.
