you might want to try yalplay - they have a big catalogue in pal format (but
then i would recommend them!) or blackstar which is also pal and who are
very good. and i think video paradise do more than just chart stuff too.....

both ourselves and blackstar have struck deals with companies in the us
(reel.com and bigstar respectively) so that we can sell ntsc videos and they
sell pal - it is amazing how many us customers do actually want to buy pal
format tapes. it seems odd to me that hmv.com and hmv.co.uk haven't got
their heads together and managed to come up with a similar deal!?!

subject: uknm: global e-commerce

apropos the discussion about global / regional e-commerce, i ordered a video
from http://www.hmv.com last week, and only after i'd ordered thought about
pal v ntsc format. i contacted them today to be told that all videos
supplied are ntsc (north american) format. luckily, i was able to cancel
the order in time, but it raised some questions.

i can't be the first to experience the problem, and yet there is no
information available on the web site to prospective non-us/canadian
shoppers re formats.

i was able to cancel my order 6 days after placing it without incurring
costs - so much for same day shipment.

any recommends for good on-line video stores who stock pal format video
films that aren't in the current best seller list? (i was looking for a copy
of a 10 year old main stream hollywood film and drew a complete blank with
jungle.com etc.)
