    Has anyone used this offer, £449.99 for their package and the 5 free discs (it says it's a AV forum member offer). What exactly is the "package" as the player on it's own is £399.99. Do you get a transformer or what. The description is very crap.
    Also, how do you set up a new account? I cannot find the link to do it.

    I'm a bit confused again.

    I know the Movietyme offer is £429.99 including 7 films (for AVForums members).

    I'm starting to think now that the £399.99 player is player only, and the £449.99 package is the player + 5 free films (6 for AVForums members).

    The packages are basically HD-DVD player + discs. No transformer.

    Yes the player only is £399.99 but it says there is an offer for avforum members for £449.99. Which it says includes 5 free disc but doesn't mention what else is in the package. So what is worth that extra £50.
    Do you have a link for that Movietyme deal?

    Also checking the Movietyme site has the player on it's own for £599.99, can they really do this deal for us with that much discounted?

    The 5 free dvds in the package is for "normal" people and is "the package". The extra bonus for the AVForums is one extra HD-DVD

    What my point is the package is £50 more and in that you get 5 "free" films. Also how do you get the extra one for us members. I cannot even get the new accounts page up on the screen.

    "Buy any HD-DVD or Blu-ray package and receive your choice of 6 movies for just the price of the PLAYER PACKAGE. All prices include shipping and importation charges. To order simply go to the site and place your player and 6 movies into the cart. At checkout please type in AV FORUMS MEMBER plus your login name into the comments box and you will only be charged for the player. (Ignore the price you see at checkout)."

    And yes technically the films aren't free, just very good value! It's a bundle.

    For a new account just add anything to your cart, then click checkout, then it gives you the option to create a new account.

    Thats the answer I was was waiting for. I'm going to try open an account at home, not working on the work computer.
    Thanks for the advice friend.

    Simply add your player package to the cart and then as a AV Formum member you can choose 6 HD DVD's, you will only be charged the price of the player package (ie HD A1 Package Price, NOT for the DVD's) ingore the price you see at checkout. Remember to add you forum name to the comments at checkout just below where you add your name and address.

    So just to confirm for everybody, that's the £449.99 player package (for the A1).

    The £399.99 package is JUST for the player right? Thanks :clap:

    Movietyme is better...

    I bought the xa1 from MovieTyme...I just added the player to the cart and then listed the 7 HD-DVD's I wanted in the comments. They arrived the next day :thumbsup:

    so..

    A1 = £429.99 inc 7 HD-DVD's
    XA1 = £599.99 inc 7 HD-DVD's.

    Two points - DVDWorldUSA has a much better range of HD Titles. Second with the announcement about the UK model due at the weekend is now the time to jump. If Tosh say he HD-E1 costs £800 then it is straight back to DVDWorldUSA. If they say £499 and delivery is next day, might be worth the wait.

    I wouldn't say DVDWorldUSA had a better range. They have the same range as Movietyme by the looks of it. What they DO do is list a lot more pre-orders, hence the larger list.

    I'm still undecided as to who to use.. need to know who's getting stock first! :D

    I think I'm going to go for the Movietyme offer, as it's the XA1 model.
    Thanks to all of you for your assistence.:thumbsup:

    Hi,

    I took the dvdworldusa deal - I had to email and quote the avforums offer first. I ordered the the A1 and 6 HD DVDs on Tuesday.

    I paid directly via Internet banking which qualified for 5% discount - so the total price was £427.50. The unit arrived on Friday, (online tracking available) with so far no customs charge. Tony said if there are any charges to let him know and he'll refund me!

    Just want to say what a great service and many thanks Tony! :thumbsup:

    Hmm doesn't the direct bank transfer take 3 days to go through though?

    I have Natwest online banking, and i'm 99% sure that the transfer is not instant. So how did he ship it out to you so fast? :confused:

    If the funds are transfered to another natwest account it is instant. if to a third party bank then it generally takes around three days.

    Yeah just spoke to Tony. It would incur a 2-3 day delay (especially with the darn Bank Holiday).

    Think i'll opt for credit card, mainly because i'm impatient :rotfl:

    New toy by Friday I hope :thumbsup:
