Default Zavvi.co.uk HD DVD "Price Crash"

Robson posted this down in the HD DVD bargain's thread, though it worth re-posting in the Imports thread:

Some nice price reductions at Zavvi (UK) online, particularly Bleak House. Delivery is a horrendous 4.95 per item outside of Europe, but still worth it for some titles:

- Twenty Thousand Streets Under the Sky - 5.99
- Bleak House 9.99
- Becoming Jane 9.99
- Robin Hood, Season 1 16.99

http://www.zavvi.co.uk/hddvd.jsf

I ordered 20 Thousand Streets & Becoming Jane.

Those are excellent prices, at which I'd recommend all. I bought them already at AmazonUK for more than double (except Becoming Jane which was 18 pounds).

Well Robin Hood and Becoming Jane are gone from the site (at least they're not in the sale). Hotel Babylon is listed at 20 euros though.

Wow, they did change it already. It was just 1 page of titles, now it's 2 pages, but mostly titles released in the U.S.

I did find Becoming Jane by doing a search, it's still available for 9.99 -

and the same for Robin Hood, 16.99 -

According to Amazon.co.uk (which wants 39.99 for it), Hotel Babylon is 3 discs & 471 minutes. 19.99 is the best retailer price I've seen for it, but a couple of folks have picked it up for less of eBay U.K. - but you need to find a seller willing to ship out of the U.K.

Robin Hood is 5 discs, 675 minutes, also $39.99 on Amazon, and hard to find on eBay.

I just snagged a sealed copy of Hotel Babylon for 5.10 + 3.95 shipping to the U.S. !

Didn't want to give too much away before my auction ended. You log into eBay.co.uk using your eBay.com ID & password. I found the easiest way was to just do a search for the title + HD - like "Hotel Babylon HD". Listings in which the seller will ship to the U.S. or Canada will show up with a shipping price; if the listing says "see details", they most likely won't ship to North America. You pay for your won items with your Paypal account.
