    Ordering DVD's from America. Can someone please help?

    Ok i am trying to buy a DVD boxset from america as it is cheaper to import it than to buy it here in the Uk, so i have 2 questionns

    1. Will the DVD work on my PAL dvd player or my xbox if the region is worldwide and is region 0?

    2. Would i have to pay tax to import the item into the UK?

    Thanks For any help.

    Yes it will work and depends on the seller the tax. Mind you if its a Sony may be tricky

    The place i was going to order it from was a DVD wholesaler online

    I'm pretty sure you won't have to pay import tax unless it's over £18.

    It was $85 or £54 (roughly) do you have any idea how much i could be taxed?

    Thanks Ste

    I buy a lot of dvds from the usa all are region 1 and will only play on a hacked dvd playes.
    I think you can get a disk to unlock your xbox.
    I think the discs you are buying might be fake.
    List the website and title and i will let you know.
    I say this as only porn discs and national geo films are 0 region.

    I'm not sure but it might be quite a lot. Maybe £10-£20.

    O yes Fakes from China.
    China does not have any copyright laws.
    So is a copy of a usa box set for eg.
    Prob good copy from dvd to dvd.
    But is still a fake.
    If the price is right fine buy it.
    But know what your getting.
    Also only hade a quick look at site but cant find contact details jumping out at me.
    That says run away fast.
    Thats just my opinion.
