I am very sorry to see tvshowsondvd go. It was a great site. I don’t know the reasons but it didn’t surprise me. I did not really buy the maintenance story. It just didn’t fit. One thing I will say (although I am speculating) is that Gord’s statement about the owners and it is out of his hands are not contradictory. There are many different levels of leadership in these sorts of companies and while the owners do get final say, I doubt that it was them who came up with the decision. Some middle manager probably made some recommendation and gave it to the owners. Also, keep in mind that through the years the website has really not changed much. With the changes in owners that is astounding that the website was not required to be “fixed” or “improved.” Lastly, while I am saddened by the closure, I am not surprised. As Gord has even said news has been lessening for awhile. Yes we have major releases every once in a while but it has definitely lessened compared to a decade ago. The daily news was light and even then sometimes not really news (such as amazon has a preorder up for a current tv show but no release date yet or something is being rereleased). The number of dvd tv titles released has changed. As was said in an earlier post many, many, many tv shows have been released in their entirety. Most of these shows were the most popular and would be the most profitable (combined with easiest) to release. While there are shows remaining there are not as many as before and many of them do not have the same fan base. For example, yes Step By Step is popular and long awaited but is it at the same popularity level as I Love Lucy, or Bewitched, or Friends? Or many of the other big shows released? Also while there are some shows that are bigger that have not been released there are usually reasons that are well known, such as music rights, and will probably never see the light of day. This leaves a few remaining big shows that do not fit the previous statements. Combine all of this with streaming and that makes the outlook for good daily news 365 days a year (minus weekends) indefinitely very bleak and impossible. In the end it would have gone downhill further and I hate it when things end on a low note. The only thing that is really sad is instead of just no longer updating the site and just leaving all the information contained in it online up for reference, it was closed completely (I don’t know why but my guess is they didn’t want to spend money or server space keeping it up?). To sum it up, I am sad the website is gone but at least it is going out while it is still good and not when it has hit rock bottom.
