Got fake Baywatch DVD's from CDWOW

Found 22nd Apr 2009
It's not listed on their website any more but it was £3.99 the cover is completely different to the one listed on blahdvd and is region free. The photos are terrible the menus on the DVD are terrible it just stinks of fake! and it came from Hong Kong which I thought was weird

one for watchdog maybe? lol

The ones i received when they were £2.49 (season 1 and 2) at cdwow were real enough (or seem to be).. they came from hong kong too..
However they do have differant cover art, and boxes, to blahdvd, and are region free..

Australia is Region 4
Hong Kong is Region 3 or 6

so they shouldn't be region free

You posted in the wrong thread?

You could contact FACT and there is a guide on there which might help confirm whether it is fake.....

I never watched the 1st series but it's not the theme tune I remember

Its the right theme tune, the godawful one they scrapped for the seasons after season 1..

the same site states, 'A genuine DVD:

* Cannot be bought from fly pitchers, street sellers, or door to door sales persons.'

*Will, in most circumstances, not be sold from open air markets, car boot sales etc

Of course i can buy a genuine dvd from the above, not everyone is selling fakes..

but the region 0 thing is a bit dodgy.. its usually only games that have that..i think..?

What I do remember however is I never noticed all the half naked ladies on it when I was little :oops:

i dont remember it having such awful 2 bob productions and the hoff throwing himself from helicopters at moving speedboats and stuff.. but for £2.49 im not complaining, after all it does have all the half naked ladies mentioned above ;-)

I really doubt cd wow would sell fake dvds. Its Rep would go down the pan!!!!

I got season 1 and 2 of baywatch from them. Seemed fine!!!

Most of CD wow stock comes from HK I thought. Nothing new there!!
