i must admit, i don't exactly understand the distribution business...

do the big chains like best buy, circuit city, wal-mart, etc have their own distribution system? as far as wal-mart, i believe handelman is the 'rack jobber' for their music department--which leads me to believe this may be done in other 'media' departments. also, i think kinda outsources their dvd store to disk entertainment--i have to check that again, though.

with the recent capitulation by circuit city on the ridiculous divx format, is this a possible windfall for image entertainment as circuit city will likely be quick to stock their shelves with traditional dvds.

the way i've looked at this company is a play on the 'explosion' of dvd. but, as i said, i don't exactly understand the inner workings of the company.

thanx in advance
