Sony slims down multidisc boxes


Conscious of a space crunch at retail and in consumer homes, Sony is rolling out a new line of thinner boxes for use with multidisc collections.

Complete-series sets of the TV shows "Soap" (12 discs) and "What's Happening!!" (nine discs) will arrive in stores June 10 in "Space Saver" packaging, each a little more than an inch thick.
