The Apple TV's Roku app also has the Arrow Channel. It's $4.99/month and offers about 150 Arrow movies.

Re: Arrow Films - Shocktober Sale (B1G1F) (10/1/19 - 10/31/19)

Arrow usually does iTunes sales in October and Christmas. In October, it's weekly batches like this. And in December it's a "12 Days of Christmas" thing with one title each day. There was also a huge iTunes sale a few months ago for Arrow's 10th Anniversary. Prices are usually the same ($3.99).
Thanks.I bought a bunch with my itunes GC. It is nice to have a small part of my collection on digital.

I was just about to pull the trigger and I checked Amazon. A few sellers are listing the House Collection for around 35.00 shipped. I decided to go that route and try to offload my blu-ray of The Horror Show.
That's a good price. I think it was something like around $32 if ordered from one of the UK sales.

what seller had it? the reason I ask
I ordered the Oldboy Limited Edition [Blu-ray] from MovieMars,but it has not shipped yet.
Just says Arriving Oct 21 - Oct 31.and the movie about triple in price since I ordered it from this seller.
I'll pay around $32 not way I'm paying $100 +

I ordered it from rarewaves. I was gonna opt for movie mars, but they sent me a really snotty email when I just wanted to confirm that it was in fact the 4 disc set since the price was so low. I’ve had to fuck around with incorrectly listed items from other sellers in the past, so I just wanted to make sure.

I nevered ordered from a UK retailer on Amazon.com before. I ordered the LE set for about $32 about a week ago.
Still not showing ship, And Moviemars is still selling the set,but jacked the price up too around $100.
Not sure if I should try to contact Amazon or wait. I'll research it a little more when I get home.


Thanks for the feedback. I'll post what happens with my order when I get it or not.

I don’t think Amazon will do anything until the 1rst. You might want to email moviemars.

yeah Moviemars canceled.saying it was out of stock.
I'm a little piss, but I ordered late and it been listed as in stock every time I check on Amazon since I ordered it. They just keep jacking the price up to one time $70 now $100.
Now I hope my back up plan/movie makes it way to my sweat hands. LOL

Re: Arrow Films - Shocktober Sale (B1G1F) (10/1/19 - 10/31/19)

Interesting that they moved the Six Gothic Tales from just a 25 preorder price to the BOGO at 49.99.
I placed my order with ArrowUK earlier and received all but the preorder in 3 days. I splurged and told them to do split shipping so I end up
with 2 shipping charges instead of one though with the weight differences with the Boxset removed it only ended up $6-7 more expensive anyway

I figure in they ship the Gothic Box hopefully on the 24/25th, I have a decent shot at getting it on release day -- or if they ship on release I should still get it bey Halloween.
Arrow Priority shipping charges have given me very nice packaging and no damage on any of the items I've ordered compared to Zavvi;s packaging and shipping on their non Steelbooks.
2-3 day shipping and great packaging makes me feel a lot better about the higher shipping charge and some of the individual sets being more expensive (and no sales tax).
OTOH I usually don't order from Arrow until I can group at least a dozen titles in an order so that helps with the overall shipping/item

EDIT: maybe better. I just got an 2 dispatch notice and FexEx notices -- one to replace an item they left out of my first delivery, but the other has to be the Gothic Box. it will be here
Monday a full week prior to release date. I just don't understand why they didn't put them into a single package -- I even suggested they do that when I sent the original message about the missing
title. Oh well, it's their funds

Re: Arrow Films - Shocktober Sale (B1G1F) (10/1/19 - 10/31/19)

Sorry I was not clear in the other post or left out zavvi.It was late.

The Preorder items are now part of the sale at Zavvi Arrow sale.Zavvi is almost always cheaper over Arrow.uk with lower shipping cost,even though they mail in multiple packages .They mail their SB in small cardboard boxes that get damage easy in the mail.


Zavvi items included in the sale went from 235 to 260 .Besides the 3 pre-ordered box sets and the Bloodthirsty trilogy,I'm not sure what they added.

Re: Arrow Films - Shocktober Sale (B1G1F) (10/1/19 - 10/31/19)

I haven't had too much trouble with the Zavvi SB boxes (1 minor damaged out of my last 10), but the non steelbooks are even less well packed.
I ran my orders through Arrow and Zavvi and found for the itmes they had in common (each site had a few the other didn't), Zavvi was less than 3% cheaper once I added their sales tax.

I figured one box with 2 day Priority and well packed vs 16 separate packages showing up (hopefully) in 7-21 days, I could live with the small upcharge
I did make a separate order at Zavvi for 4 Arrows the main site didn't have in stock or weren't on sale there (Abominable Dr Phibes)

Glad you had good luck with your Zavvi SB boxes . I have not ordered any SB's online for a few years now.
Yes Arrow shipping is always tops for me too Ordered 4 movies from Zavvi and all came in separate packages, with 3 arriving the same day. All in good shape except for that one steelbook.I hate to send it back,but the dent is deep and can not be pushed out.and I buy so few SBs these days.

Not a huge savings but The hellraiser trilogy and Sister Streetfighter Collection have drop from 25.73 to 23.99 at Zavvi.

Arrow Video UK Flash Sale - Ends 3/2

295 titles.
Note: This is the UK site and a lot titles are region B.
I thought I would post this as they have some Arrow books included in this sale.
Never bought A book from Arrow also I believe the shipping cost has gone up or no longer free after a certain amount.But the shipping cost is not bad on bigger orders.


https://arrowfilms.com/shop/feb-flash-sale-2020/?pi=1

List of
region-free titles.

Isn't that always the way, -Criterion Flash Sale, followed immediately by a Kino Lorber sale, followed immediately by an Arrow sale.

Re: Arrow Video UK Flash Sale - Ends 3/2

Just check my last order from Arrow.UK was just over a year ago and it was during a sale and about the same shipping cost.
I try to buy from Arrow.US releases if the same movie is available in both countries. But I never check in most cases until they have a sale or a special edition I want to buy like the Oldboy set.

Isn't that always the way, -Criterion Flash Sale, followed immediately by a Kino Lorber sale, followed immediately by an Arrow sale.
Almost seams that way. Twilight time might be next or do they already have one going? They do lots of sales these days.

Re: Arrow Video UK Flash Sale - Ends 3/2

2019 Twilight Time/SAE had a 15 for 15 in April as the only sale before Sept
2018 15 for 15 in March and a MGM Sale in February, then an late June sale
2017 and 2015 they had an excellent March Madness sale
2016 April there was a $10 off sale


EDIT:
And right on schedule I'm wrong again.
Appears to be a massive sale (SAE, haven't checked TT) with almost every available BD 4.95-14.95 I don't see anything higher.

Re: Arrow Video UK Flash Sale - Ends 3/2

just a couple questions for those in the know. Does anyone know when Arrow typically runs their next sale? Are the Woody Allen AA titles usually included? They are 15 GBP right now, how much are they usually during the sale?

Thanks in advance!

I'm just guessing, of course, but during the sales most general titles are 7.50 GBP, -10 GBP at the most.

Re: Arrow Video UK Flash Sale - Ends 3/2

Prices sound about right -- not as good as those boxsets that used to be 25, but pretty nice for the singles.

ARROW UK sales tend to be prtty regular though not perfectly timed

Around Easter, Black Friday/Xmas/FESTIVE, and some sort of Summer Sale are common enough

My last list though I think I missed a 2017 sale (or 2)
3/24/2016 - 3/28/2016 (EASTER)
6/28/2016 - 7/11/2016
9/26/2016 - 10/3/2016
12/12/2016 - 1/9/2017


7/19/2017 - 7/31/2017
12/15/2017 - 1/13/2018 (FESTIVE)

4/6/2018 4/9/2018
7/23/2018 - 8/6/2018
10/10/2018 - 10/18/2018
12/23/2018 - 1/9/2019 (FESTIVE)

4/17/2019 - 4/30/2019 (EASTER)
6/17/2019 - 7/6/2019 BOGO
10/1/2019 - 10/31/2019 BOGO
11/28/2019 - 12/13/2019

ARROW VIDEO "Easter Carnage Sale" through April 13, 2021

For those that wait for these big ArrowUK Sales to load up of cheaper title -- it's started a bit early. Presumed end date is around April 13

Starting as low as 5 and including over 500 Blurays. Many of these titles are released in the US and UK, but usually are significantly cheaper from UK than
most US sales.

ArrowUK EASTER CARNAGE SALE 3/30 - 4/13

welcomemarch21 10% off 50+-- not sure of expiration, but 3/31 would be reasonable

Caveats -- a lot of ArrowUK titles are Region A friendly, but only around half. Arrow lists region status in their descriptions, but it's only fairly accurate (if it says A+B you're probably safe), but many items they list REGION B are either Region Free or at least Region A+B

GoogleDoc Summary of ARROW UK known Region Compatibility
This is a pretty good start on know status mostly pulled from Bluray.com database.
Page 1 by Region Status (A friendly at the top -- possible in the middle -- B Locked at the bottom)
Page 2 -- item by release date
Page 3 - titles alphabetically

Shipping was increased a couple years ago so small order are quite expensive relatively and increase by weight rather than titles
Ballpark shipping costs to the US

Arrow shipping is based on weight, not items so it you have 2 disc sets or boxsets the numbers will change.
A single disc, basic Item seems to run around 100gm

Royal International Tracked -- not sure of the turnaround speed for this service.
up to 300gm 1-3 titles 8.
up to 500gm 4-5 10.
up to 1000gm 6-10 items 12
up to 1500 11-15 15
up to 2000 16-20 18

US TNT Tracked
-- this used to be DHL Express at 2-3 days so an extra benefit. Not sure of TNT speed, but they seem to be FedEx which I've had some Priority packages from them show up is 3-4 days too
2-5kg 25 21-50 items


Grindhouse Video
is one of the retailers that sell ARROW US disc and is having a simultaneous sale.
SHipping is flat rate $5 or $10 depending on your order.
They have approx 200 items on sale including several that are US Exclusive and a couple that are sold out or not on sale in the UK
A bit of a warning -- this is essentially a one many shop and he only has a handful of disc on hand. As I understand, he orders discs from his ARROW Supplier as needed then ships them which the order in complete. This means it can take a while to get your order. I think he only accepts PAYPAL for payment though I could be wrong.
