2.0 out of 5 stars The Anthony Trollope Collection, 27 July 2010
This review is from: The Anthony Trollope Collection (6 Disc BBC Box Set) [DVD] [1982] (DVD)
I ordered this item based on the fact that the language was in English, but it was not disclosed that it was shipped from Netherlands. The subtitles were in Dutch, and it certainly was not helpful to those with hard of hearing problems. There should be a more transparent disclosure as to the source of the product, and the customer should be given the option whether English subtitles placed huge importance in the viewing of the home movie.

I was going to buy this product but being a little hard of hearing I like to have subtitles. Not much use if they're in Dutch and I agree it should be made clear in the description.

I don't believe it claims that it has any subtitles on the Amazon product page?
Disappointing that it doesn't have them, though.

I agree. Amazon could be an awful lot more helpful, as could DVD makers, if they made it clear always, whether or not there are subtitles. I am also hard of hearing and a film without subtitles is useless to me. I regularly go to the website www.dvd-subtitles.com to try and check.

Switch the bloody things off! It's not difficult, just use the 'subtitle' button on your remote. With regard to english language subtitles, they're very expensive to produce and for smaller labels can make the difference between a title being released or not at all.

thanks for this information. I was going to order this set, but now I will abstain. I hate these cheap Dutch DVD copies with no English subtitles, and often the overall quality is inferior. It is a shame that Amazon does not mention the Dutch subtitles but just omits any reference to subtitles.
