^ I can honestly say I can't see a difference
Yea, my TV recorded copies have more clarity, you can't see anything in either of those pictures
I was really referring to the lack of pictures in StCoop's post.
What lack of pictures? I can see them right now.
I don't see any pics in Firefox, and I'm not blocking anything.
Chrome shows me two image icons, but still no pictures.
^ You might need to manually copy the urls into another window (it worked for me ).
STCoop, If I was going to pick between 'coke' and 'pepsi', I'd say pepsi is the DVD and coke is the Blu Ray. Am I right?
As was I. Now there's a single picture, but. not, two pics, and no broken image
Even quoting the post in question, shows only evidence of 1 pic.
It seems the new US releases are still the definitive ones. There are a few things on them, like the reinstatement of the 'Next Time' trailers in Series 5 and the inclusion of the actual broadcast version of the 2005 children in need special rather than the workprint version that was mistakenly included on the DVDs, which have plagued all home releases until now -- including the current UK Blu Rays!
It's somewhat bizarre that Series 1-4 actually differ between UK and US. My assumption was both would be from the same source (blu rays being a mostly universal format, unlike DVD).
Chrome still shows 2 image icons/broken links. It can open them in new tab.
This postimg.org must be the problem, though I don't know how.
Looking at the images, it really is hard to see a difference.
YOu've also got to bear in mind when importing stuff to the UK from outside the EU, you can get hit for customs duty( and VAT I belive) so it might look cheaper and better value but it could end up being more expensive.
It's been confirmed now: these discs ARE region locked (and are, in fact, the first ever Doctor Who Blu Rays to be so).
There are retailers out there online currently listing this as a region free release, but BUYER BEWARE, if you're outside the States and are ever contemplating importing the USA set, you'll need yourself a multi-region Blu Ray player or device.
Bit of a bummer, as the USA set is clearly superior to what the rest of us are getting. Happy fiftieth anniversary.
I can't believe more people don't get region-free players. But, do major brands make them, or are you stuck with a no-name?
I thought Region Free Players were fairly common place outside the USA, and it's only in the USA where it takes great effort to get a Region Free Player
^ It's a matter of availability. You can find them relatively easy online, yes, but if you go down the high street retailer and try to buy one in a store (still the most convenient option for a lot of us) then everything in their shop window will be region locked (and some brands don't have the ability to unlock them).
The models that do have the ability are either no-name brands of dubious quality to start with, or else they've got a prohibitively high price point.
An alternative is to have two separate players. Depends on how much cash you have to burn.
Most US Blu-ray players don't support 1080i50 playback. In the UK, you'd want the Blu-rays to have those and use the native frame rate, whereas in the US we'd need them pulled down to 1080i60.
Separate names with a comma.
