Do anyone of you know where to buy the latest DVD releases from the UK (region 2)in Toronto/Canada?

If yes, how many days after the offical release in the UK itīs possible to buy it in Canada?

...erm... why would anyone want to sell UK R2 DVDs in Canada?

R2 (Europe, including the UK) DVDs are PAL - which is incompatible with R1 (USA & Canada) and R2 (Japan) NTSC TVs and DVD players...

...but, then, you already knew that, didn't you?...

...oops! ...just noticed that was your first post - so sorry!

Take a look here:

...you will notice that Region 2 is in two 'parts' as mentioned in my previous post; the same is true of Region 4...

...you should also note that, in order for you to be able to play anything but R1 DVDs, you would need an all-region player ...to view DVDs from regions other than R1, you would need a multi-system TV - these are fairly common in Europe, but in North America they are as rare as hens' teeth...

Isn't this fun?!
