    Does anyone know if American R1 DVDs are the
    same as the Canadian R1 discs.
    The Canadian DVDs seem to be a lot cheaper.

    I believe that if you buy stuff from Canada the discs are more or less the same but the Canadian discs sometimes include French 5.1 tracks - for obvious reasons - This is the case on the Toy Story 2 disc set ...
    There are however some discs made for the Canadian market and these wont be like the US stuff (or the R2 for that matter) ...
    I use www.absound.ca in Canada on a regular basis and have never come unstuck ...
    I also know that www.play247.com get alot of stuff from Canada so if its mainstream stuff you want I wouldnt worry too much ...

    I believe that the Canadians apply their own 'censorship' to DVD & VHS.
