    (Callum Browne is going to love this!)

    Yes, that's right!

    The first 2 seasons of MLP are coming on DVD in the UK by a company called Clear Vision.
    They're not just doing DVDs here. They are also going to do DVDs in France, Spain, Italy, the Nordic countries and the Middle East.

    This is probably the most exciting news we're ever going to get!!!
    I'm shaking in excitement as I type this!!!

    I've got 2 sources...

    You know what Hasbro and Clear Vision...

    Yesyesyesyesyesyesyes! Now I don't have to buy a £60 blu-ray player... :p
    Wondering what versions of the episodes they're going to use - for example, will Last Roundup be derped or un-derped?

    Surely the content will be exactly the same? I just personally try to exclusively collect blu-rays now if I can that's all.

    Normal release will probably come first though... and blu ray may be in 1080. Also then I have a copy for home and a copy for work =D

    I hope we'll get the commentaries, since they're the best things on the American S1 DVD. It'd be nice to know release dates, but this is still fantastic news! :D For one thing, with the continuing uselessness of UK TV coverage, it will finally provide an outlet for MLP:FiM to come to a wider audience in this country. :)

    Bit disappointed that there are no Blu-Rays, but I did wonder if they would risk as they do tend to cost a fair bit to manufacture.

    Having watched them in HD, I don't think I could handle SD DVD's.

    However, on Equestria Confidential's website (where I heard about this) it says:

    "There’s currently nothing else on the distribution method however given Clear Vision’s history we might be able to expect the series to be released on both DVD and Blu-Ray formats"

    Hoofs Crossed!!!

    I do think that they'll be released as DVDs first. Not sure about when or if there will be Blue Ray versions.

    Doesn't look like there'll be a nice shiny tin but I've just read that they'll be released as individual seasons and also as a boxset.
