    I heave read on a couple of threads about the Hustle series 1 dvd being cut to 50 min per episode. Just a couple of questions:

    1. Are the 9 mins cut noticable in the series 1?
    2. Are there any problems with Series 2?
    3. I was going to order these from choices website as it is the cheapest. Have Choices improved as they used to be awful with sending things out.
    4. Have they replaced the series 1 version, the reason I ask is because there is a review on Amazon from someone who says that there episodes run for 59 min.

    Thanks for your help

    This is what DVDCompare say about Hustle Season 1...

    Warner Bros UK confirmed that the initial pressings were of the European version of the series (52mins vs 59 mins). Subsequent pressings (from August 2005 onwards) are of the correct full length episodes as shown on BBC1 in 2004. The only differences seem to be in packaging and Disc Ids:

    Wrong Version
    - Packaging Run Time: 312 minutes
    - Disc IDs: Disc 1= VFC69044, Disc 2= VFC69313
    Correct Version
    - Packaging Run Time: each episode approx 59 mins
    - Disc IDs: Disc 1= VFC77681, Disc 2= VFC77758

    As for Season 2, there are no mentions of incorrect episodes being included so I would assume they got it right first time with Season 2.

    Yes they've improved - I would say they're as good as Sendit or Play in terms of reliability and customer service .... AND you get iPoints - which has netted me many a freebie

    There don't appear to be any bad reports over at the DVD Suppliers & Technology forum
