Entertainment One Distribution (formerly Koch Entertainment and E1 Entertainment Distribution) is the home media manufacturing and distribution arm of Entertainment One Ltd.


Notable for having led the independent sector with the largest number of Billboard-charting titles, over 150 Koch distributed titles enjoyed success on various Billboard charts in 2003. Most notably, Koch dominated the Billboard charts in May 2003 when it simultaneously claimed 7 Top 200 albums and 10 Top Independent albums. Also, in 2004, Koch held the top 3 positions on Billboard's Top Independent Albums chart, two of which were Koch Records titles (now eOne Music).

On January 22, 2009, Entertainment One changed the name of the company to "E1 Entertainment Distribution."

With the re-branding of Entertainment One in 2010, the company was renamed "Entertainment One Distribution."

The company now manufactures various media on disc and digital including CD, DVD, Blu-ray and video game discs.
