Contender Home Entertainment

From Audiovisual Identity Database


Contender Home Entertainment was the home video division of the Contender Entertainment Group formed in 2005 as part of a split between the company's home video and television divisions, with their TV division becoming Rubber Duck Entertainment.

In March 2009, Contender Home Entertainment was folded after CEG rebranded as E1 Entertainment UK (later Entertainment One UK), and from then-on, ex-Contender releases simply used regular E1/eOne logos.


Logo: Same as the 2005 Contender Entertainment Group logo, but the orange sun features a star inside the wheel. The end result is a print red star with the letter "C" on it and a red circle behind it. Below the "CONTENDER" text is the words "HOME ENTERTAINMENT" under it.

Technique: Same as the Contender Entertainment Group logo.

Music/Sounds: Same as the Contender Entertainment Group logo.

Availability: Uncommon, can be found on Contender DVDs from this time.
