    Hello,

    I recently ordered DVDs from three companies:

    play247
    video-now
    dvdboxoffice

    My experience with these companies revealed the following:

    1. All three companies shipped their product from Canada (I was under the impression the play247 was based in the UK!)

    2. Of the three companies, DVDs ordered from video-now arrived within 6 days from the time of order (this definitely impressed me - since I live in the UK); DVDs ordered from play247 and dvdboxoffice took 3 weeks to arrive (presumably, their service is much quicker, however, this was not the case for me)

    3. Some of the movies that I ordered from all three companies were CATALOGUE titles; I had to wait 3~4 weeks for these titles (from each company)


    While there is both negative and positive press for the three companies in question, I can offer the following advice:

    video-now offered excellent service for newly released titles (while the other companies lacked in service); in regards to catalogue titles, all three companies lacked in stock availability

    One final note. the customer service I received from video-now was excellent, they did not give me any programmed responses

    Hi,

    All I got from Video-when-we-can-be-arsed was a load of hassle, money taken from my credit card, and NO blinking DVD! I say that they should be hung!

    As for any DVD importation company, it is illegal to sell any non-BBFC approved material within the UK, hence all of these firms IMPORT the discs, via places like Jersey and Guernsey, et al. Whilst many have Uk-based phone numbers, none of the discs come anywhere near the UK, for obvious reasons.

    I am having a lot of trouble recently with VideoNow - No responses to email fax or even telephone. I have had a title ordered since March that was sent (maybe) but it never arrived. Anyone else had problems?
