United Kingdom The "They have it cheaper on Amazon.co.uk than Amazon.com" and Other Great Deals

I figured after all the Discussion and Great Deals coming outta Britain at the moment, many might find this beneficial. Rules to this thread
  • Merchant must ship to USA
  • Only post Region Free titles, so that question isn't asked every post
  • Amazon posts daily and shipping to USA is usually 5-7 days
  • All currency is in (GBP)*

*For currency conversion, use www.xe.com . Remember to add 3% for conversion fees charged by Visa. Amex is around 2.7%




What You Need to Know About Region-Free Blu-ray discs:

Quote:
1. All Region-Free Blu-ray discs will play on your PS3/SA unless:

a) The Region-Free content is encoded in 1080/50i
b) The disc has forced PAL or 1080/50i content (trailers/ads), which will prevent you prevents you from getting to the main menu.
c) The actual disc menu is encoded in PAL or 1080/50i (Zatoichi).

2. All supplemental features will play on your PS3/SA unless:

a) They are encoded in PAL (576i)
b) They are encoded in 1080/50i.

All supplemental features will play on your PS3/SA if they are encoded in 480/60i, 720p, 1080/60i, and 1080p.

3. Blu-ray discs cannot be PAL or NTSC because PAL and NTSC equate standard-definition (different format). Blu-ray is a high-definition format. With other words, you cannot have content that is both standard-definition and high-definition at the same time. It is either one or the other.

4. Last but not least:

a) Most European majors (WB, Sony Pictures, Fox, Universal, Paramount, Studio Canal) typically encode their supplemental features in 480/60i (NTSC), or when possible 1080p, which means that they are perfectly playable on U.S. PS3/SAs.

b) Most independent European distributors (Optimum Home Entertainment, TF1, Park Circus, Arrow Films, EuropaCorp, etc.) typically encode their supplemental features in 576i (PAL), which means that they are not playable on U.S. PS3/SAs.

c) A recent trend amongst many independent UK distributors (Artificial Eye, MOC, BFI, etc) is to encode their supplemental features in 480/60i, 720p, or 1080i/1080p so that they can be accessed by North American customers.

Amazon UK has now dropped the four film set another 9 to 24.95 which makes it a steal for four films. I own this set and all are solid releases with great PQ and AQ so definitely worth the purchase!

There's a good deal in amazon UK. Get 2 blus for only 15 pounds that is around $22 dollars, and many are region free.

Can anyone confirm whether the set is region free? Amazon lists it as so but we all know how reliable they are.

Oh no! My secret is out

Amazon.uk prices on certain things are amazing compare to here in Canada. I will be ordering The Tudor season one next, the difference in prices with what I would be here in Canada is incredible

Never saw this thread before, but I'll say it's a good one JW!

I've ordered quite a bit from Amazon UK, and in fact, I prefer it over Amazon US for deals. Ever since A-US introduced that automatic brokerage fee thing (or whatever it's called) I've not ordered from them. It's just not worth it for Canadian members.

Will be ordering another copy of Planet Earth to give as a Christmas present for someone. Thanks for this.

They are not always and certainly after you factor in shipping but just as different stores have different pricing cycles, so do the US and UK Amazons. You just have to watch both to see which ones have the best price.

So I love this thread; I hope it has a long life.

Harry Potter 1-6 is available for 30 pounds (~$45)

Matrix Collection at 16 pounds. Doesn't include animatrix, though.

I was going to order the Godfather collection, but it's over
