His video title says when Zavvi bought ArrowDid you watch the guys video? He clearly said about 30 seconds in that it's The Hut Group that purchased Arrow, not that Zavvi had purchased them.
regardless of the titles still being available they will no longer be under the name of Arrow Academy, so meaning that the label has been done away with, nothing will now be released under the name.
Let's be fair, Arrow will no longer be the same with their releases and look at the ones that we have had over the past few months and the amount of them for instance the new release of True Romance another release of Demons and Demons 2.
Let's also look at the quality control over the past couple of months, its been a joke with a couple of their recent 4K titles.
Zavvi is one of those companies that quite a few out there including myself would rather avoid but have no choice if wanting a certain title.
I understand that some will welcome the move as it opens the doors for many other licenses, ETC but I for one ain't one of them, the quirky little titles that were getting released I think will quickly become a thing of the past and the bigger name films will be released time and time again as we have recently seen. Let's just hope that they can get this quality control situation under sorted, there's only so many times people will put up with the excuses especially with their prices slowly go up.
