MTI Home Video is a United States-based movie distributor in the direct-to-video market. Typically, they will buy the distribution rights to independent films that did not see a theatrical run in the U.S., and be released directly to DVD.[1]

One of the company's first releases was Freedance, an interactive fitness workout video featuring Marine Jahan from the film Flashdance. In 2006, they attracted attention for buying the distribution rights to the edited version of Pirates, a high-budget pornographic film released in 2005, which was edited down into an R-rated version for a wider release.[2]
