These warning screens are from Media Home Entertainment, Heron Home Entertainment (although Media Home Entertainment wouldn't be bought by Heron International until 1984), Hi-Tops Video (children's division), The Nostalgia Merchant (classic film division), Music Media (music-oriented division), and Fox Hills Video (special interest/obscure B-movie division). However, MEDA (Media Home Entertainment) VHS and Betamax tapes don't have warning screens until 1981. In 1991, Media Home Entertainment was exclusively distributed by CBS/Fox Video and Fox Video (both now 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment), but it has this warning screen instead of the 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment Warning Screen. In 1993, some of the Media Home Entertainment assets were absorbed into 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment while the others, including the home video library, were sold to Video Treasures (now Anchor Bay Entertainment).
