2-disc.

This is not the version with the Amazon exclusive content. It's the regular 2-disc BD. Search for Woodstock and you'll see the two different BD versions listed.

If it was the exclusive version, I would jump on it and sell my Target DVD set, minus the 4th disc, which was the Target exclusive.

Woodstock at Amazon UK

The Amazon UK version has all the exclusive features from the Amazon and Target releases, no swag , it's region-free and best of all, it's only 12.99 which is about $18.67.

It doesn't. The 12.99 is before VAT is removed (during checkout) so it's only 11.06 after. With shipping it only comes to 14.04 or 21.08 in US currency.

Does anyone have a link to the product info that details what's included in this UK version?

What is the pay pal UK conversion fee?

I would hate to order the BR UK set for $21.08 USD and find out Pay Pal charges a ton for the conversion.


Does anyone have any other good deals for Amazon UK for Region free BR's?

Amazon bills me in US currency so that 21.02 price includes all taxes and fees.

To the UK, yes. To the US, no. However, shipping costs aren't that bad. I believe Band of Brothers Blu-Ray shipped for less than $5. But I saved so much compared to the US prices it was more than worth it. And the amazing thing is I ordered from the UK on May 14th and received it today.

Wow! Great turnaround. That band of Brothers looks like a deal.

I found a list of all region Free BR and it is helping me a ton.

Would a U.S. Prime account carry over to the U.K.? Fingers crossed.

Shit! I wish I had checked here before ordering. I hadn't even considered looking at Amazon UK.

I just ordered a couple of hours ago, and it's already in the prep stage, so I can't cancel.

What content will be missing?

You can just let it ship then ask for a return label. I was going to order this buy my fun money has been used up buying Starwars ships and troopers this month (7th).

I order from Amazon UK all the time. Lotta good deals there that outweigh Amazon US even after having it shipped across the globe.

Canceled my order. (Sometimes it pays to not have Prime.) I had assumed this was the Amazon exclusive set. Thanks for the info.

Ordered the UK version with The Boat that Rocked.

As an exclusive collector, it was a painful decision to skip the two US exclusives due to cost. To get it all for ~$20 is a no brainer, thanks Zeke.

Yes, thanks for this info, zekeburger. Very happy to be getting all of the content, sans trinkets.

I know there are resources for region-free blu-ray discs, but does anyone have any other recommendations for feature/presentation-superior UK blu-rays?

Good reminder Trevor. Lots of good deals on Amazon UK.
Btw. anyone know if all the special features on the Woodstock BD on Amazon UK are in HD and thus also region free? If they are in SD they will unfortunately not play on my US PS3.

That is not necessarily true at all....Warner typically only authors a BD title once for worldwide distribution and encodes SD bonus content as NTSC since most TV sets in Europe and other parts of the world are multi-format capable....

Can anybody definitively say whether or not the UK version of Woodstock as well as the extras are region free?
