Kaleidescape Store History - Studio Add Dates


I had been wanting to do this for a while and finally got around to it. Here are the dates that Studios where added to the Store along with a few other key dates. All the dates are gleaned from either posts in the Forum or Announcements from Kaleidescape.

It is interesting to look at the initial roll-put. The Store came online with Warner Bros. in 2012. The next Studio (Lionsgate) was added a year later in 2013. A year after that in 2014 the third Studio (Sony) was added. I suspect that the people that were around then are a little more patient with the roll-our of new Studios now. However, there is one big difference. Back during the initial Store roll-out we had the option to just buy the disc and load to our servers. That is not an option with 4K titles now.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy seeing the history!

I am missing some dates as listed below so if anyone has any of these dates let me know. Also, if anyone sees any errors please let me know and I will correct.

It is pretty clear that Shout Factory titles are being added to the Store so I have added this to the list.

A collection has been added. It also includes the Studio Ghibli movies(separate collection still exists). Guess, Shout Factory must be the distributor for Studio Ghibli.
