    Does anyone know how this work, for Runaway Jury and movies in general? What
    I am looking for is a timeline showing the original theatrical release, then
    the DVD release date, then the pay per view release date, then the cable TV
    (HBO or Showtime) release, then regular commercial television. Thanks.

    Theater Release is first
    DVD / Video - 6 to 10 months after Theater Release depending on the studio
    Pay Per View - 30 to 90 days after DVD release depending on the studio
    practices and incentives to video stores
    HBO - Usually 3 to 4 months after pay per view
    Commercial TV - can be a year or more after the release to Cable

    These are all approximate times, except the Pay Per View. Studios set a
    minimum time for video release before it is offered on Pay Per View. This
    is done so that video stores can make thier money back on rentals. It also
    serves as a guage for the number of copies you want to get. If a movie is
    going to be out 30 days after the video release you don't want to get 75
    rental copies.
