A Brief History

This article provides a list of Criterion Collection Blu-ray titles released in U.K., distributed by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Digging Deeper

The Criterion Collection is a video distribution company which specializes in licensing and selling “important classic and contemporary films” in “editions that offer the highest technical quality and award-winning, original supplements.”1 Janus Films and the Voyager Company established The Criterion Collection in 1984 as a privately held company concentrating upon the North American home video market. In March 2016, Criterion announced that due to a distribution partnership with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment select Criterion Collection titles would be launching in U.K. as Blu-ray editions, starting on April 18, 2016.

So far all the released titles have been films that have already been released in US by Criterion Collection, or that have received simultaneous releases in the US and U.K. So far all the released titles have been identical to their US counterparts apart from region coding (A in the US and B in U.K.).
