    Have a look over on the HDTV forum. There is a link in one of the threads for a German site where you can buy DVDs containing HD versions of some recent films (with English soundtracks as well!). These are encoded using WMV-HD, so you'll need a pretty fast PC to play them.

    On a DVD it will only work out to £3.00 - £4-00.

    Assuming that this is a France-based site, there shouldn't be any additional taxes to pay, as you are buying from another EC country.

    On your last point, these are currently PC only. No DVD players at present with enough 'muscle' to handle playback of WMV-HD files.
