Criterion [=DVD=]s and Blu-rays are Region 1 encoded (North America only). Eureka Video's [[http://www.eurekavideo.co.uk/moc/ Masters of Cinema]] series could be regarded as [[TransAtlanticEquivalent the UK equivalent]]. Creator/DiscotekMedia might be considered the Japanese animation equivalent due to their releasing some high-profile series in the U.S. that were never released before, as well as the care they put into cleaning up their releases and including supplements with them. Rykodisc was also something of a musical equivalent in the '90s, reissuing critically-acclaimed albums (including the back catalogs of Music/DavidBowie, Music/FrankZappa and Music/ElvisCostello) on CD with bonus tracks and detailed liner notes. Creator/TurnerClassicMovies is more or less the television equivalent and has aired many, many Criterion titles over the years (and, in 2016, launched a joint venture with Criterion to create a subscription online streaming service called [[https://www.filmstruck.com [=FilmStruck=]]]).

Criterion licenses titles from their studios, so the releases occasionally go out of print... [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes taking their bonus features with them]]. Also note that UpMarketing applies to the collection, due in part to the relatively small audiences for many of these films; with rare exceptions, a single-disc title is $30 (U.S.)...and many, ''many'' Criterion releases are multi-disc sets. (And you thought the companies that made anime [=DVDs=] were bad...) Currently they also offer two sublines:
