    Default Info on importing HD DVD titles

    There are 3 main sections in this thread, separated into different posts:

    Post 1: General Overview of importing HD DVD
    Post 2: List of sites from where HD DVD can be imported
    Post 3: List of titles currently available for import plus pricing info and links

    Imports are especially attractive to HD DVD owners since currently there is no Region Coding specification for HD DVD, so movies purchased from anywhere in the world will work in the USA and everywhere else.

    It is possible that Region Coding may be added in the future, however Amir, the primary HD DVD evangelist from Microsoft has recently said in January that:

    HD DVD is also the only global HD format with no region coding. So you can continue to enjoy CE and content from anywhere in the world, with no worries about borders. And with the advent of internet, you can purchase them with relative ease. This is also driving content adoption. When I was in UK, many had imported their players and content from US.
    and

    HD DVD region coding proposals have lost steam. At this point, the odds of them getting into the standard is very low. Of course, even if it does pass, it has no impact on current products which are region free.
    So until Region Coding is standardized for HD DVD, if ever, then you can have confidence that any HD DVD that you purchase will continue to work in the future, even if Region Coding is later added.

    I will be continuously adding information to this thread from various sources.

    Public posting to this thread is possible, feel free to post additional information and suggestions. Also please feel free to pm me with additional suggestions.

    Default List of sites for ordering import titles

    International Sites

    (scroll down for some helpful tips about ording from Amazon's international sites)

    Amazon France: http://www.amazon.fr/gp/redirect.htm...&creative=6746
    Amazon Japan: http://www.amazon.co.jp/s/ref=nb_ss_...eywords=HD+DVD
    Amazon UK: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/redirect....&creative=6738
    Amazon Germany: http://www.amazon.de/gp/redirect.htm...&creative=6742
    Spanish Site: www.dvdgo.com

    Some additional sites:
    http://www.axelmusic.com/index_fab.p...at_name=HD-DVD
    http://www.play.com/DVD/HD%20DVD/NAV...egionHome.html
    Another Japanese site in English: http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/special/new_media/index.html

    Using the www.dvdgo.com and www.amazon.co.uk, everything is available in English. For the other sites, please go to the site, choose DVD from the pop up menu, enter HD DVD into the search box and hit return to get the listing of titles available.

    When ordering from Amazon Germany, be careful not to order titles ending with the following [WMV HD-DVD], these are not HD DVD titles but instead are intended for playback on your computer, instead it should be followed by something like the following (HD DVD - 2006), which indicates that the actual media is HD DVD.

    From the European sites, when shipping to the US, the VAT tax is automatically removed, so you are typically paying several Euro less than what you see in the listing.

    Shipping can be high if you order a single title, so maximize your savings by ordering more than one title at a time, when possible.

    www.dvdgo.com has among the worst shipping (almost $20) and the cost gets higher if you order more than 4 discs.

    Currency Conversion

    You can use the following link to bring you to a handy calculator to help with currency conversion:

    http://www.xe.com/ucc

    Choose Euros for most of Europe except for the UK where you should choose Pounds. For Japan, choose Yen.

    Domestic sites

    It is also possible to order import titles from some shops in the USA such as the following:

    http://xploitedcinema.com/catalog/hd...b053ada9cb9060
    http://www.hdaddicts.com

    For Japanese releases from a domestic site:

    1. Go to www.yesasia.com
    2. Choose Videos from the search category
    3. Type in HD DVD and hit go
    4. Click on "Japanese Videos" in the "Refine Search" section.

    Ordering from Amazon Germany and other Amazon sites

    First of all, it is easiest if you create your Amazon account in the US and populate all of your shipping and credit card info. For most international Amazon sites, you can log in with your US account info and access all of your account info from the US. The only Amazon site where this does not seem to work is Amazon Japan for some reason.

    1. Use the Amazon Germany link I have in the thread underneath the Title listing.
    2. Add it to your shopping cart by hitting the button labeled "In Den Einkaufswagen"
    3. Click on the cart icon to go your shopping carts.
    4. Make sure there is only one of each desired item in the quantity/Anzahl column
    5. Check out by hitting the "Zur Kasse Gehen" button
    6. Preferably log in with the same credentials from your US Amazon account.
    7. Hit "Wieter" to continue
    8. Choose your shipping address from your US account using the "An diese Adresse versenden"
    9. Choose your credit card info from your US Amazon account and hit "Weiter"
    10. To finalize the purchase, hit the "Bestellen Abschicken" button and you are done!

    Note, if there are any other titles you want from Amazon Germany, I recommend that you order more than one at a time to save on shipping costs. You can just go back to the import thread and click on the Amazon Germany links for the other titles, they will all accumulate in you shopping basket until you are ready to check out (go to tep 3).

    You can use almost the same procedure for Amazon France.

    Default Titles Available for Order

    I want to create a list of all titles available for import or expected to be available soon in this section

    This is a work in progress and I will be adding titles from various sources over time. Please feel free to pm with information of releases available plus the link to where it can be ordered from.

    Prices in US $ are after removal of VAT from price listed on target link and should be considered to an estimate since prices may fluctuate and currency exchange rates vary.

    Shipping is not included in the price. Be aware that with almost any international site you will get better value if you order more than one title at a time as far as shipping goes. For example, ordering 1 title from Amazon France may cost you over $40 per disk shipped to the US. But ordering 3 or more can bring the price down to around $32 per disk or less.

    Hi everybody, as many may have noticed, I have been very lax in maintaining the import thread. Therefore Kannisto has volunteered to take over maintaining the thread.

    Additionally, I am leaving the thread open so other members can post info which Kannisto can add to the core information. Any off topic and outdated posts will be later removed to keep the thread clean.

    Thank you, Kannisto, for taking up this task!

    I'm planning to do my first update rounds on the import title listings during the coming weekend.

    In addition to commenting on this thread, please feel free to send me Private Messages as well in case you have some specific requests or ideas regarding the content of this thread.

    I'm not currently planning to change the structure of the content in any major way though, at first I will be focusing on updating all the title listings with current information.
