5.0 out of 5 stars A HIGH QUALITY "AS BROADCAST" BLU-RAY!
Blu-ray review: You KNOW the mattch- The Gents Final 2013.. You KNOW the OUTCOME!
Having watched this LIVE on BBC HD channel on my Professional Panasonic Plasma (65") monitor screen, I CAN CONFIRM the footage on this Blu-ray disc to be the very same (possibly slightly better?) than the original BBC broadcast- stunning, ultra-sharp and NO smearing/motion...

1.0 out of 5 stars No chapters, pointless
Everyone knows the result, we bought it to relive it. The fact that if you hit the wrong button you end up at gsm is frankly laughable. Go back to my illegal rip I think.

5.0 out of 5 stars A HIGH QUALITY "AS BROADCAST" BLU-RAY!, 19 April 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wimbledon: Official 2013 Gentlemen's Final - Novak Djokovic vs Andy Murray: The Complete Men's Final [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Blu-ray review: You KNOW the mattch- The Gents Final 2013.. You KNOW the OUTCOME!
Having watched this LIVE on BBC HD channel on my Professional Panasonic Plasma (65") monitor screen, I CAN CONFIRM the footage on this Blu-ray disc to be the very same (possibly slightly better?) than the original BBC broadcast- stunning, ultra-sharp and NO smearing/motion artefacts whatsoever..due to it being shot and as presented here in its 1080/50i (interlaced) format as broadcast- and with all the running around and fast serves, this remains VERY natural to the eye, unlike, for example, a fim that is presented on Blu-ray in 1080/24p (progressive) format, and many TVs (epecially LCD/LEDs) will render some RAPID MOTION SMEARING.. NONE HERE!
You have the Original BBC commentary, in LPCM (48k) 2.0 channel sound- this is superb, spacious, and highly detailed.
I have NOT yet TESTED if this is a REGION "B" LOCKED issue- which may be WHY our American cousins have had a bad time with this release! I will do that and REPORT BACK in a few days/if asked..(I have the ability to test on a Mutli-region Blu-ray player and a USA Region "A" (Locked) Panasonic player).
The information on the packaging is to blame here!!!! There is NO Blu-ray Official REGION Coding displayed- on the rear nor on the disc! One WOULD EXPECT to see a Region "B" Warning/Notice, or a REGION FREE one displayed.
For American purchasers, DO ALSO bear in mind your TV/screen MUST be able to handle the 50 frame(video/broadcast) format- your standard is on 60 frames a second,(but Original Cinema Footage is shot at the Universal 24p frames a second) although all recent Blu-ray players will handle this worldwide, your TV (if one of an older earlier generation USA model may NOT- traditonally sets made in the USA used to handle ONLY NTSC color and 60 frame rates, in the ANALOG TV/Broadcast era pre-Digital/and HD.. (unless a Premium unit where multi zone color handling was possible- eg PAL European color standards..).

I DO suspect this is a Region "B" European LOCKED issue, probably due to Copyright/Distribution Rights in the USA- often handled by your PBS and others.. but I will TEST for this if anyone asks- I can do that in a matter of moments.

For everyone else (in the UK/Europe Region "B" area) this is a DRAMATIC GAME and shown here in at least the same/better AS BROADCAST in HD..which STILL brings out the Hot Sweats as you WATCH! You'll also see in the the crowd/Celberity seats our British Prime Minister and the Scottish First Minister sweating like pigs too! Perhaps they have/had reason to? It was one of the hottest days of the year..and this was a long, hard fought game, which will be remembered for years to come! Buy this with confidence, it really is a proper "Wimbledon Offical" release up to the Highest Standards.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last they put this on Blu Ray!, 22 Oct 2013

They missed out on millions delaying the release of this. Does anyone know if this includes the tournament story as well - or at least each player's route to the final?

1.0 out of 5 stars Not bothered any more..., 23 Feb 2014
This review is from: Wimbledon: Official 2013 Gentlemen's Final - Novak Djokovic vs Andy Murray: The Complete Men's Final [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I really wanted this Bluray last summer. There was no way that I was buying the low def DVD. Who's bright idea was it to delay it until now?

Opportunity and fortune lost. Idiots. voting with my wallet this time. Not buying.
