When DVD’s and blu-rays hit the market in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s respectively, people could not wait to get rid of their VHS machines and large bulky cassettes fast enough. The clear, sharp picture quality on discs made the Video Home System a thing of the past.

Folks quickly replaced all of their favourite films in the latest format, putting away their old tapes into storage, giving them away or just tossing them into the trash.
