* Many ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' fans have found that the Chimera Ant arc in the 2011 anime, while glacial to watch weekly, is easier to follow and digest in extended viewing sessions.

* Matrix Month from WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic has got VindicatedByHistory from rewatch, as all together the meta and foreshadowing moments become more clear.

* ''Series/BandOfBrothers'', and by extension, ''Series/ThePacific''.''Series/ThePacific'' since they're essentially 10 hour long WarMovies split into individual episodes. In fact, both were specifically filmed with the DVD release in mind.

* Similarly to ''Doctor Who'' (as noted in the "Live Action TV" folder), this is a very sharp double-edged sword for the 1984 TV adaptation of ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar''. While marathons can help one breeze through season one's massive block of filler episodes and allow the story's progression to come at a more natural pace, the amount of recaps the show (either as pre-episode narrations, flashbacks, or ''entire episodes'') uses makes much of it seem quite redundant. This becomes especially true for the five interstadial episodes between seasons three and four, as all of them are recaps; the fact that one of them focuses on the fairly recent Souther arc just adds to the repetitiveness.

* ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' on DVD is uncensored and extended for the most part. Censorship is generally kept in only when it's the basis for a joke (such as Princess Clara not realizing that Foxxy Love is flipping her off until she does it in return). Due to the heavy amount of censorship for offensive, disgusting, and outright insane content they could not air on ComedyCentral, the DVD set is the only way to experience the series for what it truly was: with all of the mind-raping, childhood-molesting, emotion-murdering, and animal-raping that was too hot for basic cable. Not only that, many scenes and lines were added that were cut for time or content (mostly content), and played the "real" version of some other watered down scenes. They left nothing out, not even the mutilated penises, fat jokes, nudity (both {{fanservice}}-y and otherwise) or the incestuous romance plots.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{MASH}}'': The DVD releases for M*A*S*H gave the viewer the ability to watch each episode without any of the canned laughter on a separate English language track. The DVD sets also boasted the untrimmed versions of each episode, since they didn't have to fit into a half-hour block for broadcast.

* In general, the introduction of DVD kicked off the release of movies to home video in widescreen. While there were a few widescreen VHS tapes released in the 90's, they were usually considered a specialty item that was often very difficult to find in stores (and even harder to find rental). There were also many widescreen laserdiscs (as they were the serious film collector's format), but it wasn't until the DVD format came out that widescreen home video started to grow in popularity, and even then it took the introduction of widescreen televisions to finally begin to kill off pan-&-scan (However, it is still common to find stores selling the "fullscreen" version of a film, especially if it was intended for children).

Note that this is ''not'' the same as VindicatedByReruns: In ''that'' Trope, all that was required for a Series to get the recognition it deserved was increased/continued exposure over time in the same or a similar format/medium. With better on DVD, the redeeming factor is the '''compilation''' of the series (with or without BonusMaterial) allowing the viewer to evaluate the series '''as a united whole''' as opposed to one or two installments a week.
