[Amazon.co.uk] Planet Earth II (4k UHD Blu-ray + Blu-ray)

Last thraed got moved to expired since the amazon.ca bumped up the preorder price to $70 (https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01LTHYICS/)

Good news is that the deal from amazon.co.uk still holds and apparently, at a lower price!

£24.99 + £3.08 (shipping) = £28.07 ~ 46CAD

Here are the info about the deal

Release Dates: March 13th (2 weeks ahead of N. America release, but you have to account for shipping)
Cost: $46CAD all in (shipping)
No. Discs: 4 (2 UHDs, 2 BDs with extras and bonuses)
2 UHD: region-free
2 BDs: format - 1080i50, not playable on ps3, but playable on xbox one and ps4.
Worth it: your call.


[Cut and paste from uk amazon:]

At the checkout, for me it totals to 40 CAD. How did you get to 60 CAD ?

Also, is this the exact same version that will be release on amazon.ca?

Thanks Op

I'm not sure if this applies to UHD Blurays but the product details say that this is B/2 Region.

Blurays:
Region A/1: North America, Central America, South America, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Southeast Asia
Region B/2: Europe, Greenland, French territories, Middle East, Africa, Australia and New Zealand

Anyone know if UHD Blurays follow the same format and will this work here in Canada?

The UHD-BD format does not include any region coding. That's part of the standard.
So any UHD-BD purchased anywhere in the world will work in Canada.

Have a questions Guys.
I bought Harry Potter complete package from Amazon UK and had trouble playing it on PS3.
The video shuttered. Then I googled and changed some setting in PS3 and then its fine after.
Do you think its not the case with these BR disks? I don't have PS4 for UHD.

Unfortunately, a PS4 won't play UHD, only the regular Blu-Ray.
If you want to use the UHD Blu-ray, you would need a 4K Blu-Ray player or the Xbox One S!

Although I'm not too familiar with region coding, the previous thread for the Planet Earth II Blu-ray (regular) advised the PS3 will NOT play the Blu-ray disc.

Here: amazon-co-uk-planet-earth-2-bluray-32-2071224/

Apparently the Blu-ray is 50hz which the PS3 can not read. Good luck!

The price was 29.99 GBP for me until I added it to my cart, and then it showed as 24.99.

Ordered. Thanks OP.

Planet Earth is the only set of Blu Ray discs I bought that experienced "rotting" making them unusable after a few years. I'd like to buy but I don't trust whoever BBC is using to make their stuff.

Do they offer digital copy to download? Or the file is too big to do this.
