Are Play1s R1 US or Canadian versions?

Hi,

As topic really... want to order unrated Land of the Dead and don't fancy one with French writing on, and as I speak Play are a quid cheaper than Movietyme (yeah, yeah, I know, I'm tight!!!).

Thanks in advance,

Matthew

Canadian every time in my experience.

No. Different distributors do it in different ways, but you'll find that on most of them you have French and English on one side.

Lion -= their returns address is in Belgium. Discs are sourced in Canada.

Many Canadian covers are bilingual on both sides - one side is primarily English with French secondary (smaller lettering), and the other side Vice Versa. Some are 50/50 on one side only. I don't think there are any Canadian covers that are 100% English on one side or at all - I believe it's illegal in Canada.

That's why I now use Movietyme for R1 as every R1 I bought from Play was Canadian, and my Monsters Inc 2 disc R1 was different to the USA R1 years ago.

Yeah, don't let the name, PLAYUSA, fool you!! They ship Canadian versions of R1 discs.
