Back when there were rental stores, but also a home purchase market, movies would initially be released on tape or disc at a high price. Then, weeks or months later, there would be a second release at a price regular people would pay. The rental stores needed to buy the movies at the high price to be competitive on new releases. The initial release was referred to as being "priced for rental." And then "priced for the home market" I think was the lower price.
