Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]

Someone above had wrote that VHS started coming in sometime in the mid-1980s. I responded as I did.

The first commercial VHS recorder sold in the United States happen in 1977. In 1980, Paramount released the first episodes of TOS onto VHS. The major competitor to VHS was Beta-Max. By the mid-1980s, VHS had won the battle.
