For those in Canada, Region 1, after you bought Planet Planet Earth BluRay from Amazon,UK, did you have to pay 5% Customs duty, plus 15% Customs tax, on DVD value to Canada Customs, plus $5 Canada Post fee when DVD arrived in Canada? As we only get skimpy $20.00 Can.$ exemption,that would be the charges on it.I've seen see this BBC BluRay DVD in stores in Toronto,except with 4 DVD's.I've seen it on sale, and would be about same price as from Amazon.UK if you consider Shipping cost,Duty and taxes,and Postal fee.Is the 5th DVD really worth buying it from the UK and paying Customs charges, possible holdups? Thx.

Hi. I paid a total of $10.33 CDN customs charges. Sorry, don't know the breakdown. I did a search on Bestbuy, Futureshop etc and even with the duty, this was much cheaper. I don't have the US version to compare but most reviews say the UK version is better.
