Description

MVD Entertainment Group (previously known as Music Video Distributors) is a corporation consisting of three major divisions: MVD Visual, MVD Audio & MVD Distribution. Since 2012, MVD has worked from a 30,000 square foot warehouse in Pottstown, PA, including office space for around thirty full-time employees.

MVD Entertainment Group was founded in 1986 by Tom & Elinor Seaman out of the family room of their home located in the Philadelphia suburbs. Tom is an industry veteran of more than forty years, whose background includes retailing stints with Record Hunter, Sam Goody, Musicland, CBS Retail & wholesale experience with Jem Records. It incorporated in 1988.

MVD initially acted primarily as a one-stop, buying all labels' music-related VHS releases to resell to music & video stores. At the turn of the century, with the advent of DVD, MVD built a large catalog of exclusively-distributed audiovisual content on DVD, especially in music concert films, horror movies, documentaries, comedy, cult classics & much more. MVD called upon its strong relationships with content holders, labels, artists & management firms to become a world leader in music DVDs.

Between 2006-2008, MVD expanded further when it merged with Big Daddy Music Distribution, picking up a large catalog of compact discs, vinyl & digital audio rights, allowing it to launch an audio CD division, MVD Audio.

In 2014, Planetworks Music Distribution merged into MVD, strengthening international sales & licensing. 2017 saw the launch of MVD Canada, offering direct retail & wholesale relationships within the country.
