Notes EDOS was a form of legal electronic software distribution introduced in the UK in 1991. The basic premise was to enable games retailers to reap greater profits by stocking a wider range of games without taking up precious shelf space.

Original master copies of games were supplied to retailers on encrypted CDs, and copied to blank disks or tapes on demand for buyers (like PD) using a custom 386SX PC in-store. Games were available for a wide range of 8- and 16-bit formats [Amiga, Atari ST, PC, Amstrad CPC (tape/disk), Spectrum (tape), C64/128 (tape/disk), MSX], and supplied to customers on generic media in multi-format labelled game boxes.

EDOS closed down its operation in mid-1994 after major UK computer chain retailer John Menzies withdrew its support and the number of independent stores involved had significantly dropped.
