    Default Sony to end production of Betamax tapes

    Sony plans to cease production of its Betamax videotapes in March, the company announced Tuesday.

    The Betamax was widely used when it debuted in 1975. But JVC introduced the VHS tape just one year later, and within a few years Sony was losing a market battle. During that clash, the adult entertainment industry's preference for the VHS played a key role in the Betamax's demise.

    "That greater adoption and lower cost saw the pornography industry pick VHS as the format of choice for its home videos, which is largely considered the turning point that propelled VHS to victory," The Guardian explains.

    I had no idea they were still being produced up to this point. I just had a look around trying to find out what markets were still using the tapes but was unable to come up with any answers
