'The Bible' Shatters Home Video Sales Records in First Week
The History Channel's just-wrapped miniseries The Bible isn't done changing the pop culture landscape quite yet.
The program's ratings gave the cable channel a massive boost, holding firm against even the season finale of AMC's The Walking Dead.
Now, the miniseries' home video debut has become the biggest selling TV on DVD in the last 5 years and the biggest miniseries of all time on Blu-ray, Digital HD and DVD in its first week of release.
According to the Association for Christian Retail, The Bible is the fastest pre-selling faith based title in its 60-year history. It also ranked first across digital stores including iTunes, Amazon, VUDU, Xbox, PlayStation, CinemaNow, and GooglePlay.
"We feel incredibly blessed that we were able to bring this amazing love story to life on the screen. It is our hope that folks everywhere will continue to be touched by the message of the Bible and cherish these stories at home with their families for years to come. This is just the beginning," said co-executive producers, husband and wife team Roma Downey and Mark Burnett in a joint statement.
