A-Z OF DITRIBUTION
Windowing is a film distribution term that starts with the letter “W.”
Windowing refers to the practice of releasing a film through different distribution channels in specific chronological windows or periods. These windows can include theatrical release, followed by periods of availability in home video formats, streaming services, cable and satellite television, and so on. The purpose of windowing is to maximize a film’s revenue potential by capitalizing on different market segments at different stages of release.
