Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Toronto-based videocassette and DVD manufacturer, Cinram International, have entered into a multi-year agreement under which Cinram will produce and distribute Fox's VHS tapes in the US and Canada.

Previously the company distributed Fox product in Canada only. Given the ten-fold increase presented by the US market, Cinram stands to earn more than $508m (C$750m) in revenue over the term of the agreement. The company is fast-tracking plans for a vast extension of its Huntsville, Alabama distribution facility.
