United Kingdom Batman 1966 Tv Series, any chance for UK release ?

Id prefer a Uk release instead of importing from USA because of duty taxes. Any realistic chance of a UK version?

Yes, given they can just copy the US masters there's a fairly big possibility. But don't necessarily expect Italian audio and subs, especially if it is a direct port of the US release.

I dont mind about the subs,I just hope its not 1 of those releases that comes a whole year after the USA release.

I wouldn't assume who owns the rights, but I highly doubt they'd do a deal just for America...

If we do have to import it, at least being Warner it's bound to be multi-region. But I hope it is released over here. I remember it was a big hit over here in the sixties...mind you, so was The Man From U.N.C.L.E. & we never got the big DVD set released in the UK.

I would imagine they would try and hit on the Christmas market on these shores as well.

I think there's a good chance of this happening. I live in norway and i found this today: http://cdon.no/film/batman_-_the_com...-ray)-27703510
Even though it's only a placeholder it wasn't there some weeks ago, so i suspect that they will release it in other countries than the US.

I'd imagine it will get a release here but probably cheaper than the States and with very basic packaging rather than a the bells-and-whistles boxes they'll get.

The USA preorders started today. I would say if we dont see a UK preorder in the next 2 weeks its not looking good.

It's available on Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Batman-Complet...+tv+series+blu

I've pre-ordered it... as it's a Warner release it's going to be region free, so if it doesn't come out here at least we can get hold of it.

True, but a UK release would be way cheaper.

I suspect we may not get it in the UK. Warner seem to forget that we exist most of the time. US, Europe and Australia get catalogue releases, we seem to miss out of loads. Which is stupid, considering a useable pan-European master is just sitting there just waiting for UK packaging.

We were one of only four countries in the world (6 if you include NZ and Ireland) to get Entourage, so I wouldn't be completely sure...

Why are some so pessimistic here? It's only just gone up for pre-order in the US, no where else has it and the set has yet to truly be announced, which will come in a week's time at Comic-Con. It will no doubt then be up for pre-order in all territories.

Also this is Batman we're talking about, not only that but one of the most iconic renditions of the character. It's taken years for WB to sort out the rights to the show, so naturally they'll need to make as much revenue from the show as possible, which will no doubt releasing it in he UK on all formats.

It's true WB have neglected the UK on many of its catalogue titles, but I doubt this will be one of them, it's just too iconic and popular to not release it.

I believe the only reason Warner are holding back info on the rest of the world launch is because the official American launch is due at Comic Con late next week. Once they have released the information at that event on how many discs are in the set, what are the special features, any other goodies in the box, etc, then they'll do the rest of the world launch.

They have too much invested in the Comic Con launch to risk leaking out the details early from a distributor in another part of the world.

This title is too big for a US only launch, and there's plenty of time left to hit the global Christmas market. I think we just have to wait for a couple of weeks.

Hoping for single season sets in the UK are an option. I wont be able to afford even if the UK price is half of the USA price.
