Hannover House is pleased to announce a new distribution / output arrangement with ALLEGRO MEDIA GROUP for Canada, effective Jan. 1, 2014 - and covering all new release titles through 2017. Allegro is the most dominant of indie film distributors in Canada, with placements of up to twenty titles per month into Walmart Stores and servicing DVD / Blu-Ray sales to all other major accounts in that market. The venture with Hannover House is intended to cover all new release titles, plus a look-back period for items released during the past three years that were not otherwise released into Canada (about 10 additional items).
In the past, Hannover House has utilized third-party sales agencies for the sale of DVDs and Blu-Ray units into Canada. This has proven to be inefficient (and at times, problematic for collections). This direct relationship with the strongest indie wholesaler is an important move that will significantly increase sales of HHSE products, speed up collections, and generate more revenues "per unit" than was received under middle-man structures. A more specific listing of titles and dates will be released next week.
