An intersting thing that I've noticed with Amazon orders lately (this wasnt the case 2 months ago) is that the parcel reaches you from an Indian company in Chennai (Avon Solutions) via Blue Dart or some other courier service.

Earlier it would come directly from Amazon via Indian Post and there would be customs duties levied. But I just ordered 5 movies and all five reached me without duties (regular shipping).

So I'm assuming Amazon has some deal with this company and it sends all its parcels through it. So if anyone is worried about having to pay duties on Amazon orders, rest easy.

That explains my delivery of Happry Potter Year 1-5 blu-ray set without custom duty. Haven't checked the sender's details though. I guess this company is a dustributor for Amazon.com.

Any guess if they do the same for Amazon.co.uk?

ur guess is as good as mine, but just because amazon US is a client of theirs (avon), doesnt mean amazon uk will be too...the volume of orders that amazon uk gets from india may not require them to have a service like this

anyways, uk royal mail (which im assuming amazon uk uses) is the best...they ship fast and most of the time there's no customs

it is must buy on blu-ray. The shortcoming is BD release does not include extra features where are DVD release does. So you might want to trouble torrents or limewire for that.

Finally, oh finally got Spiderman Trilogy BLU-RAY at my doorstep from Amazon.co.uk along with DS3 from pa.com at the same time. No custom duty on them. My lucky day.

Spidy on blu is breath taking. Anyone from bangalore wants to borrow, be my guest.


Edit: I lost hope on receiving DS3 from PA.com but my hope way alive for amazon shipment of spidy trilogy as I received harry potter year 1-5 sp. edtn. in blu couple of days back 4m amazon.com, no custom duty there again.

If they are region free then go ahead and buy them. I have bunch of RF blu-rays, if you want to borrow sometime.

I assume you have HD TV. If not then don't bother buying blu-ray coz you wont see the difference.

Edit: Not all blu-rays on amazon.co.uk are region 2. Some are region free. They are good to buy irrespective of your console region.
