LOST Dvd

We really do live in rip off Britain! You have to buy the first series of LOST in two parts here in the UK. Each one costs £34.99 You can buy the entire series from Amazon france for 50 euros! (about £33). Loads of other places abroad you can buy the entire first series in one box as well. grrr. :ranting:
Fine if you've got multi region dvd player. (btw how do you know if you player is multi region?)

Here in the UK it seems to be in limited supply as well. Many online stores quoting delivery in 1 to 2 weeks - that isn't any good for Christmas!

So I've been hunting around trying to find it online in the UK at a reasonable price. Best I've found who quote it as "in stock" is Play.com ...
<script language="javascript">
var uri = 'http://impgb.tradedoubler.com/imp/inv/1025600/370391?' + new String (Math.random()).substring (2, 11);
document.write(' </script>
Someone else might find this useful.

Well..it costs 49.99 EURO for the first 12 episodes here, in the shops.
It's ridiculous......specially as everything will be reduced in the sales a few days after Christmas.
The whole series is due for release on Jan 6th...dread to think how much that will cost.
Sigh..............

Don't get me started.
I posted much the same thing in another forum (bless me SO for I have sinned Wink) and basically got shot down in flames for having a 'sad' non-multiregion player.

Nice to know I'm not the only one stuck in R2. :laugh:

What kills me is that I have the WHOLE bleedin' LOST series (sent to me from the USA) on dvd..ready and waiting for me.
Will watch it at my parents house when I go home for Christmas.
mmm thinking happy 'zooming in on Sawyer' type thoughts........
Someone told me that some dvd's can be adapted to multi regional anyway...
but I would'nt have the foggiest how to do that.
Wonder is it possible...................................??

Depends on the model.
I happen to have an aged Panasonic which, of course, can't be hacked. I could get it chipped but I'm going to wait until it dies and then get a multi-region one.

Oh, and I wholeheartedly concur with the 'freezeframing Sawyer..::

Why not just download the episodes off one of the file sharing progs? It's free :laugh: Or is that illegal? :shutup:

With regard to regional DVDs, a techy friend of my son's told me that you can play most of them on the computer and if not you can download a patch to make them play.

Haydon, I have found Lost on http://www.choicesdirect.com for £24.95. It's region 2 if that's any help.

Critique can I ask the same qestion as Aon - where can you download it from?

Ahh. though wait a minute - it states that it Lost Series One, Part One and only includes 12 episodes which in that case it is a bit steep!

Loat is £24.89

The winner says it may be difficult but it is possible; the loser says it may be possible but it is too difficult
