Shout! Factory Announces Streaming Service

Shout! Factory is joining the online streaming game, and I couldn't be more hyped.

One of the best DVD companies running today, Shout! Factory has made a name for itself releasing box sets of nostalgic shows and listening to what consumers want instead of just what television studios think is timely.

There have been countless threads in their series request forum in the past that have received replies along the lines of "We'd love to, but a DVD just wouldn't be popular enough to cover its costs." This was the case for the second season of Medabots, which was put on indefinite hiatus after the first season failed to meet sales expectations. Having a streaming service will give Shout! the chance to test even more cult classics with less overhead.
