Planet Earth Blu $24.99 + shipping at Discoverystore.com

Planet Earth Blu-ray is $24.99 at discoverystore.com cheapest shipping is $4. It should be noted though that this is the version narrated by Sigourney Weaver and not the one available in stores.

Amazon's lightning deal hint for 8pm PST says "See the world in Blu", I was thinking it might be Planet Earth.

They are edited (about 4-5 minutes shorter per episode) and narrated, as noted, by Sigourney Weaver. I would hold off for the BBC versions, personally. Bought these on accident (same deal) last year.

That's interesting. I didn't know two version were available in the US. amazon.com shows "David Attenborough" as the narrator for their blu-ray version, although I don't know how you could know for sure which version they'll ultimately ship out.

It's easy enough. If you get it at any major retailer that isn't Discovery, you'll get the BBC (aka real) version. Order it from Discovery and you'll get the crappy version.

Planet Earth is now double that price. When we left Earth is much higher now too.

Isn't this version only 1080i and not 1080p?
