    That's all we were ever likely to get get over here, unfortunately. The first Equestria Girls movie is, I think, the only thing the UK has ever had on Blu-ray. :(

    Still, better a DVD than nothing at all. I might consider buying it if it's not stupidly priced.

    It’s £9.99 on Amazon right now. Yeah season 3 is the short season but that’s *loads a calculator* about 77p per episode?

    Heads up: The Complete Season 3 DVD set is only £7 in Tesco. Haven't checked other supermarkets yet but they may be similar

    Oh my god just noticed the two Twilights on the Season 3 cover...

    I don't like the UK DVDs at all. Some things they did good like the covers for Seasons 1 and 2 and the fact if you bought the latter from Sainsburys when it came out you got Magic Duel and Sleepless in Ponyville as extras. But everything else is a mess. I hate the fact that Season 1 was out of order, and how some of it and 2 had the proper annoying sped up voices thanks to not being transferred to PAL properly (when the first lot of Season 1 episodes that were released didn't have it, so it's clearly possible but they were just lazy). Also both the FIM and EQG dvds had special features missing really annoyed me as well.

    Eww, still DVD. It's like if we said "sure we'll export some British music to the US... coming to a cassette player near you"

    I could be wrong but I'm sure the Australian DVDs can play on UK players. They are different regions (4 vs 2) but they're both PAL and some Aussie DVDs work over here, but not all of them.

    You are wrong. Pure region 4 DVDs cannot be played with region 2 players unless the player was made region free. Some DVDs are multi-region releases and support multiple regions. As far as I've been able to find out, Australian MLP:FiM releases are R4 only. PAL or NTSC does not matter as all European DVD-players and TV's are NTSC compatible and have been for decades.

    That's what I meant, some DVDs released in Australia can play on European DVD players because IIRC some of the releases of Nickelodeon shows can. They exist with American releases, but Australian releases seem to be far more common and I think it's due to the fact we share PAL with them.

    You're right about that, yes in general, there are some Australian releases that can play on European players (as well as some releases from other regions). But this is a topic about MLP DVD's and Australian MLP:FiM DVDs won't play on European players unless they are modified.

    There's no need to be condescending. I'm not stupid and know how region coding works and I assumed they worked but they obviously don't...

    Right, so amazon only has one complete season 4 boxset left in stock and i has no money for it, it doesn't even say more on the way next to it, does anyone know if places like HMV sell it?
