i agree.... the spanish and the french dvd boxes do not have Greek subtitles. hope the italian and the german release have Greek subtitles. for example: ''TREME Season 2'' uk version do not contain (not entairly sure) but the spain release has. ''VAMPIRE DIARIES Season 3'' spanish nad french release do not have but HOPEFULLY the German version contains Greek subtitles. we must check. this sucks!
is this true? there a lot of peculiar things that are happening in Greece! for instance conserning the first season on American Horror Story. i found out that this release is a Polish one that contains Greek subs. what is happening with the Strike Back season 2? french, german and australlian releases contain Greek subs but no distribution here. Treme season 2 (french and spain box), Vampire Diaries season 3 (german box) and Boardwalk empire season 2 (uk and EU boxes) contain Greek subs but no distribution here. i do not have to mention the prices here. very high prices!
Not entirely sure, but the lack of greek subtitles means that the producer will probably demand a contract to license. There is an effort lately to divide Europe to subregions, with Greece falling in with eastern europe, so if the dvd's were or are to be licensed for eastern europe, or even specifically for Greece, western europe dvds will have no greek subtitles. (Greek companies are either unwilling to pay or don't really care, and some have been known to release without permission, so who knows what's going on in corporate heads... btw, the 1st season dvd's for greece had greek lettering printed, so i guess they were not imported, but they were the same as the english release, down to the greek subtitles).
thank you very much for the detailed information. you are very correct. there was 4 sites that i purchase the boxes of some series such as : amazon, play.com, hmv(now i cannot) and lovefilm (now only rental). the sad thing is that if the rest 2 sites no longer provide boxes of the series in Greek subs, i will have to try to look somewhere else which is very difficult. for istance, i have found australian site which provides region 2(pal) boxes with Greek subs but the shipping cost is higher than a european amazon. concerning the greek lettering of the boxes, you are very correct. i have found out the discs are the same as the European with english menu inside. i mean that only the packaging has been changed. for instance, all the seasons of Big Love contains Greek subs. the distributor here only changed the outer box with Greek lettering but the disc inside are like the UK ones. the same has happend with Tudors. Season 1-2 the discs are the same as the UK ones, season 3 as the spain release and season 4 as italian release. lately, something else happened with the seasons of Breking Bad 1-5. the season came to market place all at once with English lettering boxes and Greek subtitles here in Greece. well, thanks to Potuguese releases. you get the message.
