I would not argue that new release is likely performing better than catalog or TV. BDs revenue seems new release heavy, so that is actually very likely.
But that is not the lie that has been perpetuated. What has been attempted to be sold is that new release revenue
has been "sustained" and "maintained" by Blu-ray. That is outright false.
