NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

VHS (Vertical Helical Scan or Video Home System) is a recording and playback format for video cassette recorders. Invented in 1976 by JVC, it became the standard for video cassette tapes due to longer recording time, cheaper media, and supposedly better marketing than its nearest competitor, Betamax.

VHS has been supplanted in recent years by the advent of DVD technology.
