In today’s technological age with DVDs, Blu-Rays, online streaming and catch-up TV, it’s no wonder that the likes of the VHS tape just couldn’t compete. However, when these plucky tapes first cropped up, it was revolutionary. Coupled with the VHS recorder, which allowed people to record live broadcasts to watch whenever they liked, this technology truly paved the way for the incredible achievements made in the realm of home cinema entertainment.
VHS was once the pinnacle of home entertainment technology. In fact, there was a time when no household was complete without an extensive collection of videotapes. From the latest cinema releases that could be your very own, to your very own family films taken on a video recorder, VHS tapes were commonplace in the average British household.
