Now you will be able to do the same thing with many of the most popular new movies and television shows on DVD and Blu-ray.

You can find them on the tall shelves behind the Information Desk with the other new DVDs and Blu-rays—just look for the pink "HITS" sticker on the case. Make it a movie night!
