What we do

Video Entertainment & Distribution has built a remarkable reputation for sharing some of the world’s best content with businesses and consumers across Australia and New Zealand. With unique access to the ABC’s vast array of media and retail promotional platforms, consumer trust that comes part and parcel with our iconic brand and a historic track record of success, we are one of the territory’s most respected leaders in content distribution.

With over 40 million videos and DVDs sold and a thriving digital business that includes the largest digital rights-cleared catalogue in the region, we enable consumers to watch our content when, where, and how they want it.

 

Working with us

Home to iconic content creators like The Wiggles, Chris Lilley and the Bondi Hipsters, we have a proven track record of success with partners that are as diverse as they are talented. Our ABC Kids pre-school label represents approximately half of the top thirty home entertainment pre-school brands, including Thomas & Friends, Sesame Street, Play School and Octonauts, while our adult slate boasts beloved comedies including Upper Middle Bogan and multi-award-winning dramas such as Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, Rake, Jack Irish, Janet King and more.

Working with the world’s leading digital platforms and business partners, we have experienced exponential digital sales growth and are proud to be launch partners with iTunes Australia and SVOD partners such as Netflix, Stan, Presto TV & Lightbox NZ. The strength of our relationships with these digital partners as an authorised encoder and a content provider also give us a distinct edge over our competition, enabling us to turn things around quickly for our partners to help further drive sales. Whether it’s a scintillating crime drama, a tragic romance, a comedy, or the next big thing in kid’s entertainment, Video Entertainment & Distribution is where the world’s best content comes to life.
