The British Video Association (BVA) is a video home entertainment organisation established in 1980. Its members include the BBC and Hollywood studios.[1] The Association organises an annual awards ceremony (The BVA Awards) in London.[2] In 2003, the BVA reported a 61% increase of DVD sales alongside a tripling in the illegal downloading of film and television files.[3] In 2010 the Association publicised the fact that around six million people in the UK have failed to acquire a High Definition signal for HD ready Television sets.[4][5]
