Background: The Weinstein Company Home Entertainment was formed by The Weinstein Company to release their films on DVD. From 2005 to 2009, their releases have been distributed by Genius Products, whose assets were later sold to Vivendi Entertainment in 2009 after their bankruptcy. From 2009 to 2010, Vivendi Entertainment has distributed The Weinstein Company's releases. In February 2010, The Weinstein Company made a deal with Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions to release their DVDs and Blu-rays through Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. However, after The Weinstein Company bought a 25% stake in Liberty Media's Starz Media in January 2011, their DVD and Blu-ray releases starting from April are distributed by Anchor Bay Entertainment.

Nickname: "The Three Bottom Lights"
Logo: Against a black background, a bluish light forms, and three bluish triangles come in from the top, bottom left, and bottom right, joining together in the middle to form the Weinstein Company logo. "THE WEINSTEIN COMPANY" in Chisel Thin Wide, a line, and "HOME ENTERTAINMENT" in Trajan Pro appears below. The light then returns and the text segue into obscurity as the 3 triangles go out of sight. In other cases, the words "COMING SOON TO THEATERS", "COMING SOON TO DVD"or "NOW AVAILABLE ON DVD" zoom out letter-by-letter.
FX/SFX: The triangles forming the company logo, in CGI massively improved over its parent logo.
Music/Sounds: Same as the movie logo with whooshes at the end. On some releases like Doogal, the fanfare sounds more synthesized.
Availability: Common. Appears on many Weinstein Company DVDs distributed by Genius Products (rights later transferred to Vivendi Entertainment "now Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment") after their logo. From 2010 to 2011, The Weinstein Company's DVD releases were distributed by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Since 2011, their DVD releases are distributed by Anchor Bay Entertainment.
Scare Factor: None.
