CIC Video was a home video distributor, owned by Cinema International Corporation (the forerunner of United International Pictures), and operated in some countries (such as Brazil, Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Norway, Sweden, Australia, United Kingdom, South Korea, Turkey and Chile) by local operators. Outside of North America, it distributed films by Universal Studios (now owned by NBCUniversal/Comcast) and Paramount Pictures (now owned by Viacom, which is owned by National Amusements), CIC's partners. DreamWorks films were added to the company output in 1998, as the fledgling studio had a worldwide video distribution deal with Universal.

In 1994, CIC Video purchased international distribution rights to shows from Nickelodeon, which videos came effect in the Australia in 1995 and UK and other countries in early 1996.

In 1999, CIC Video was dissolved when Universal purchased PolyGram and reorganized its video division under the Universal name. Paramount Home Entertainment became CIC Video's successor.
