    Just received the Canadian version of Timeline.
    It is an Amaray type case but with two extra clips along the opening edge which have to be opened before the case can be opened.
    In two minds whether this is a good thing as it's obviously intended to help prevent younger fingers from opening the DVDs.
    I have two young kids who I want to open their own DVDs. Maybe this case should be reserved for titles which are classified anything other than U.

    the rundown used the same case, are these not the red tag cases that warner were supposed to be using to replace snappers?

    Not sure but i wish the studios would have used R3 type cases that stop shakers instead of those two clips... would have been of way more use.

    This sounds the same as Lost in Translation and 21 Grams. It's more to do with thievery than children. But they still have 3 stickers and cellophone covering them.

    The next type of dvd case will probably need a blow torch to open.

    I recently bought a dvd with a Red chunk of plastic where you would normally put your thumbs, is this a 'red tag' I couldn't open it at all.

    Yes these are red tag.
    The tag should be fitted by the retailer, no point adding to mail order stock as there is not a theft issue.
    When you pay the retailer is supposed to remove it.
    However as they are so new most staff don't seem to realise it. When I bought a sale DVD in WHSmith about a month ago the girl at the till had no idea she had to remove it, only when I said did she get a supervisor who told her how to remove it.

    Problem is the red tag can only be applied to stock which uses the special type of amray case which only a few studios use in the UK, therefore hit & miss for the staff whether it will have it although they should check.

    Well, they can find other ways of tagging DVD's that arn't in Amaray Red Tag cases, so it'll still be better than those plastic boxes that WH Smiths use. My brother bought 3 dvd's from HMV that had red tags that HMV forgot to remove. Probably best not to discuss ways to remove them, there could be thieves reading this!

    Most of the GC games that I've bought from shops have the red tags on.
