Some releases from the company included the original Halloween, early Peanuts videos, The Adventures of the Wilderness Family, some films from the Cannon Films library, and all of the Nightmare on Elm Street films in the 1980s.

In 1984, Media Home Entertainment was bought by Heron Communications.

Their last releases were distributed by Fox Video (also some by CBS/FOX Video) (now 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment). Videos from Media Home Entertainment were also distributed overseas in the United Kingdom and Australia by VPD (Video Program Distributors) and Video Classics respectively.

The company ceased full operations in 1992.

The company's releases are now distributed by Fox, New Line Home Entertainment, MGM Home Entertainment, or Anchor Bay Entertainment (and some Media releases from 1987-1992 were released under the former Video Treasures name).
