Playboy Phasing Out DVD, Going All Digital

Playboy has announced plans to phase out their DVD releases in the coming months due to a recent decline in sales.

They are phasing out their DVD production in favor of Digital Distribution. Christine Hefner, the daughter of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner had this to say:

We will continue to deliver more of our content digitally, using our assets across multiple distribution platforms and adding more a la carte offerings. Given the declines in the DVD market, we will exit that business in phases over a few months to concentrate on selling that content online.

Although Blu-ray isn’t specifically mentioned in this report, we assume Playboy probably won’t jump on the train any time soon since this decision was made due to a decline in physical media sales for the company.
