Major League Baseball Productions and A&E Home Video to Offer Fans Individual 2007 MLB World Series Games On Demand with CreateSpace

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. and NEW YORK – October 24, 2007 – Baseball fans can again rejoice. For the second consecutive year, Major League Baseball Productions and A&E Home Video have teamed up with CreateSpace, part of the Amazon.com, Inc. group of companies (NASDAQ: AMZN), to offer individual games from the 2007 World Series between the Colorado Rockies and the Boston Red Sox on demand. Each game of this year’s Major League Baseball World Series will be available for sale on DVD, within hours after the final pitch, to millions of MLB.com and Amazon.com customers.

"It’s great to be working again with Major League Baseball and A&E Home Video to make the 2007 World Series available to millions of baseball fans,” said Dana LoPiccolo-Giles, co-founder and managing director of CreateSpace. “With DVD on Demand, fans can order tonight’s game and have it delivered to them within days.”

The National League Championship winners, the Colorado Rockies, and the American League Champions, the Boston Red Sox, have both experienced storied paths to the 2007 World Series, making these DVDs a must-have for Major League Baseball fans everywhere.  The Colorado Rockies have a chance to win their first-ever MLB World Series title and the Boston Red Sox, who overcame a 3-1 deficit in the American League Championship Series to advance to the World Series, have the opportunity to clinch their second World Series title in the last four years.

From the start of our collaboration with Major League Baseball for the 2004 World Series Collector’s Edition, we have seen extraordinary response from baseball fans across the country to our DVD sets,” said Kate Winn, vice president, A&E Home Video.  “Offering individual games on demand is a natural extension to the sets, and we believe fans will be excited to have another option to own a piece of baseball history.”

In addition to offering individual complete games on demand, Major League Baseball Productions and A&E Home Video offer a line of World Series Collector’s Edition DVD box sets that feature every complete game from World Series championships in 1975, 1977, 1979, 1986, 1987, 2004, 2005 and 2006.  A complete set of the 2007 World Series will also be available.

CreateSpace manufactures DVDs, CDs and books on demand as they are purchased and ships them directly to customers. In addition to working with Major League Baseball and A&E Home Video again, CreateSpace has also helped bring thousands of new DVDs to Amazon.com this year from a variety of content providers, including ABC News, BBC Motion Gallery and The National Archives and Records Administration.
