I've been to ask everywhere that sells DVDs and I can't even find a lick of it on any local websites, where's the New Zealand release of the Spaced DVD set?

I'm not exactly desperate because I've already got the UK one, but all I got when I asked at the shops was a blank stare followed by an utterance of "Space....d?"

Anyone else in our area having the same problem?

Or does anyone in Auckland know where I could pick it up?

Or is there some kind of unforeseen delay?

Please don't tell me you bloody Aussies have it and we don't! Lol.

Thanks,
Gemma

I haven't had a chance to look for it any shops here yet.
But loads of Aussie DVD websites have had it available for pre-order for quite a while.

I guess if you can't find it in any shops there you could get a copy shipped over from Australia.
Ezy DVD are usually pretty good.

Well you should know!
Really though, is there an edition of any of them that you don't have?

I'm not actually planning to buy the Aussie version because the content is exactly the same as the US release which I already have.

I bought my Region 4 set on Saturday. Woo hoo! biggrin.gif (I didn't get the US one.)
I got it in JB Hi-Fi for $40, & I've also seen it advertised on the ABC Shop website (but for $50). rolleyes.gif
I couldn't find it on the EzyDVD website, but I did find this....
Doug Anthony All Stars - The Unlimited Uncollectible Sterling Deluxe Edition (2 Disc Set). It's available for pre-order now, for a release date of Thursday 6th November, for $34.97. smile.gif

Feel the (Region 4) love.

*double post*
I just discovered a little write-up about the Aussie release of SPACED, in the Home Entertainment section (near the back) of TV Week magazine. biggrin.gif It's a bit light-on for info & not completely accurate, but it made me do a little squee to see it! happy.gif

Feel the love.

Grrr.

I thought if anyone here would have it, it'd be JB-Hifi, but they don't. Importing is gunna cost me an arm and a leg, and besides, I already spent a lot of money importing the UK version. I was really just looking forward to simply walking into a shop here and seeing it on the shelf.

Maybe I'll just keep bugging JB-Hifi until they do something about it.

Have you got the Spaced DVD yet?

^ Given that it's in all the Australian JB stores - surely an NZ store could order it in for you?

I couldn't find it on the EzyDVD website, but I did find this....

That link I posted to Ezy DVD a few posts ago is a direct link to the Spaced DVD.

What actually is that DAAS thing? Is it DAAS Kapital or just clips from Big Gig or what?

*ETA* Have done a bit of scouting around and it definitely looks like it's just all the Big Gig clips.

Ah, but it's the Region 1 set. wink.gif

Still, it doesn't explain why I couldn't find it in my search on the website yesterday. Weird. huh.gif

Feel the love.

Something weird going on there.
When I click the link it takes me to a page which is definitely the Region 4 version.

And when I go to their main page and type in "Spaced" in the search field it comes up too.


Maybe the site was down or having problems or something when you went there?

Ok, now it lets me find it on a general search. But it's strange that it has this:
PLEASE NOTE: Only TV monitors equipped with NTSC playback facility can replay this DVD in full colour
when it says it's Region 4 further down the screen. I don't get it. wacko.gif

Feel the (confuzzled) love.

I assume it's in NTSC because it's based on the US version.
All they've changed from the US is the region encoding.

Ad for the set on the ABC last night, so if anywhere else runs out, the ABS shops will have. Although, they're usually the first to run out.

Yeah I saw that ad too.

ABC shops tend to be more expensive also.

Well this is the reply I got from my major online store:

Hi Gemma,
Our supplier has just advised that they will not be releasing this TV series in NZ:(
Sorry we couldn't help Gemma.

Help me Edgar! This isn't fair! *Cries*
