Has anybody got information about which other spoken languages besides English will the UK blu ray sport? I can't see why Amazon is so miserable in giving detailed information about this, having such a broad international audience.
I´ve been looking in the web for the complete specifications of this Blu Ray and I found in Ebay that the spoken languages are ENGLISH, DEUTCH and BELGIAN. I´m spanish and I was at the point of buying this Blu Ray but I won´t becouse of this information. Amazon should specify much more about the auido track of the Blu Rays.
Couldn't agree more. I think I've seen this question in most Amazon DVD/Bluray forums... I believe the solution is to create a thread that must grow to one of the biggest on their site about this question...
They just don't care, and maybe the DVD and BluRay Labels don't want them to publish this information, to keep inernational competition low. Here in Germany, due to the strong Euro, prices are much higher and they want us to have no escape...
Usually UK releases DO NOT feature Italian audio tracks (but often DO feature German and other European languages). It's a pity because pound sterling is so weak presently (£1=1.1€), therefore most Blu-ray offerings in Amazon are roughly half the Italian price - and often less than that...
estoy con vosotros aunque no sepa expresarme en Ingles. Yo incluso compré la trilogia del Padrino en la que pone el idioma en Español y cuando la recibi resulta que solo el CDbonus tiene subtitulos en español. Los otros ni subtitulos. Todavia estoy pendiente de devolucion del dinero o lo que sea.
On www.dvd-subtitles.com you can find out a lot about subtitles. However, make sure that the information you get at this site is about the same dvd. In Europe they often use different releases for different countries. It looks like Wall-e has English, English for the hearing impaired and Dutch subtitles. They mention this under the header: Claimed subtitles. So as in life, almost nothing is shure! Please don't take my word but find out yourself.
If you would like to know which BD's have Dutch subs, just check this site: http://www.dvd.nl/forum/showthread.php?t=59008 It tells you which BD's have dutch subs and from which country you can buy it!! USA, UK, GER, FRA, CAN, AUS, NOR, JAP and ITA!!! It's quite a handy tool!!!
Sometimes it works to go here: http://uk.blu-ray.com/movies/ Make sure you select UK as the country and then do a search movie for the title you want. Most often it will list all the languages and subtitles. It even says the audio format. As an example, you may have french but only in 2.0 (I prefer a DVD with surround to a Blu-Ray in stereo) .
C.L. Altena and Joao-carlos Ventura, thanks for the webpages you suggested. I often have to look in the Internet for this info, and it's most annoying no doubt. I regularly use http://www.dvdcompare.net/ or other commercial web pages to try and find out this info.
Years back they used to provide this info on most DVDs, it's probably because of pressure from distributors that they don't do now. I mean, if distributors are preparing subtitle tracks for all European languages and with the size of DVDs they could easily put all languages on all releases, but they don't because the same as with regions they want to prevent imports. Another curious case of big companies against free open markets, but that's another topic.
I think the best thing is to contact Amazon customer care directly and ask them to include this info on products. If they get a lot of requests they may do something.
