The best US based dvd retailer on the web

AdvantagesHUGE RANGE (good for hard to find editions), free worldwide delivery, titles packed seperately to avoid duties

Disadvantageslonger delivery time (same as most US based shops), navigation could be better, disc information could be alot better (maybe due to large range??)

"Why would you want to buy DVDs from overseas??? If you have a multi-region DVD player you are asking me a daft question!!! Firstly, nine times out of ten films are released in region 1 (USA/Canada) roughly 2 months before they are released in the UK. The other 1 time they are released simultaneously here and USA. Secondly, DVDs from america have more extras on them!! They get more special editions, and generally just more titles are available on ..." Read review

The Best Place to Buy DVDs - Period.

AdvantagesFree International Shipping, good selection, good service

DisadvantagesWeak Website Design

"Firstly, anyone who is serious about DVDs has a multi-region player and is buying Region 1 discs - anyone who isn't needs to wake up. Assuming it's Region 1 you are after, DVD Box Office is simply the best place to buy discs. This Canadian upstart has been around a while now, and has a great reputation. Most notably, they offer FREE SHIPPING internationally. This makes a huge difference in the price for those used to paying shipping from DVD Express ..." Read review

Great Site!

AdvantagesGreat Titles, Great Prices

DisadvantagesLong Delivery

"This site offers free shipping worldwide, which makes a pleasant surprise. Of course because Boxoffice is based in the States you can get hold of films before they're available in the UK and they're much cheaper than over here. New Arrivals take centre stage on the opening page of the site and you're looking at prices between £15 and £20 for the latest movies. Impress your mates by getting hold of the latest movies before they hit UK shops with ..." Read review

The best DVD shop - ever!

AdvantagesFree Delivery and fast with it

DisadvantagesNone

"After receiving the URL for this company from a friend, I took a look around to see what was on offer. I have a region-free PC setup and so was not restricted on which region I could watch DVDs from. DVD Box Office has an excellent selection and I found it hard to choose which DVD I wanted to buy first. The best thing about these guys is that delivery is free and is not always tagged onto the price of the DVD you wish to buy. The other good thing ..." Read review

best service you will find

Advantagesbrilliant service

Disadvantageswebsite slow to download

"I use DVDBOXOFFICE 99% of the time when I buy DVD's. Not only are they the cheapest (which is very important!) but they give excellent service. I have never had any problems with any order I have placed. The free delivery offer, which has been on offer for as long as I can remember, is the only one that ships free to the UK I have found on the internet. This keeps the cost of the actual DVD down, I hate paying loads to have things posted to me! Delivery ..." Read review

Why go out to the movies...

AdvantagesExcellent service and pricing - FREE delivery

DisadvantagesAre limited in the range of DVD's, slightly longer delivery than UK order

"Why go out when you can stay in and get a good movie on DVD (which you can watch over and over) not too long after it comes out to the cinema and for not much more than it would cost you to go to the cinema! By the time you go out, use petrol, pay for parking and pay your entrance fee to the cinema - follow that up with the extortionate prices for Pick'n'Mix and drink prices almost in line with your local - the cinema is no longer a cheap night ..."

BEAT THE SYSTEM Check this out

Advantagesbargains galore, and better than buying delayed UK releases

Disadvantageserm....suppose it's exporting money from our great nation

"There is little point in retailing DVD’s on the high street in the UK. How on earth places like HMV and Dixon’s make money from them is beyond me, especially at the £20 price point they insist on levying. Let me introduce you to www.dvdboxoffice.com, possibly the greatest DVD retailer in the whole damn universe. Their based in Canada, so you get all those lovely region 1 discs months, yes MONTHS, before the UK releases are even thought ..." Read review

I love Canada!

AdvantagesPrices can be better, free shipping.

DisadvantagesDiscs take around 2 weeks to arrive.

"Usually I use play247.com to get my region 1 dvd's but occasionally I also use these guys. Based in canada, dvd boxoffice are an excellent source for region 1's at occasionally better prices. Example "Four weddings and a funeral" - I actually found it hard to find any uk retailer who stocked the title so when I found it here I was very happy. Even happier when the canadian dollar price translated into £12.95 (and that includes postage - which is ..." Read review

Good buys extra features and worth the wait

AdvantagesCheap prices, buy dvd's before they are released in this country and more features than their RS counter parts. Unmarked envelopes

DisadvantagesSlow deliver, you will require a multiregional DVD Player

"I have only bought one dvd from DVD Boxoffice and like everyone who is reading this, I was apprehensive the first time as to what would happen. But my fears were unfounded. DVD Boxoffice is not one of the fastest for delivery, but they do offer free world wide delivery and your dvd will arrive in an unmarked envelope. Also, their prices are hard to beat and you will be able to purchase dvd's that are not out in this country yet. I purchased the ..." Read review

Only good if films are in stock

AdvantagesCheap, free worldwide delivery, good site layout

DisadvantagesOut of stock items not updated

"I recently ordered 3 movies from these guys, after reading reviews about the site and visiting other sites. Their site is well laid out, prices include free worldwide delivery, and you can see the price in any currency. However unlike other sites, when you order your films they dont tell you whether the goods are in stock. The 3 titles I ordered showed as being available immediately, however it wasnt until 5 days later that 2 of them were in stock ..." Read review

UPDATED 140101-Region 1 DVD with no extra cost

Advantagescheap region 1 dvds with free delivery

Disadvantageslonger time of waiting

"UPDATED 14/01/01: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ If you're a movie addict like myself with a multi-region dvd-rom/player, you'll know that it's very hard to find good dvd bargain, here in UK. Now, this has changed, a lot with dvdboxoffice.com, a region 1 online dvd retailer(region 1 can be played only with a multi-region, ie region-free dvd-rom/player in UK) The UK dvd player is for region 2 dvds only. First of all, the price, is damn cheap! Even when you ..." Read review

Import Gamers Heaven

AdvantagesA great Place to buy IMPORTED console games, free worldwide shipping

DisadvantagesLong delivery time.

"When I bought my japanese Gamecube earlier this year, i was stuck from who to import games from... Pricey online companies in Engalnd were charging £60 a game! Far to extravagent a price for me to pay, so I browsed a few sites, and found DVDboxoffice.com. This site is truly brilliant for the online gamer, a whole myriad of games to buy all at affordable prices. Theres a handy price converter on the site, which changes all the prices from canadian ..."

4 months and still waiting

AdvantagesFree shipping

DisadvantagesIt hasn't arived after nearly 4 months.Customer Service sucks!!!

"I ordered 2 DVDs from dvdboxoffice in the beginning of April. I have not received them. DVDboxoffice's answer is that it must have been "returned to sender" so their solution is to wait until they get them back in the post before they refund my money. In the time that I have been waiting for my DVDs from dvdboxoffice I have ordered 7 from Amazon and 2 from www.choicesdirect.co.uk without any problems from either. In total I have sent 9 emails to the ..." Read review

BUYER BEWARE!! Do not deal with these scumbags!!

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesSCAM ARTISTS.

"So the XBox 360 is the hottest item in town nowadays.. and many people pre-ordered the system to avoid being left out on launch day. Some pre-ordered from dvdboxoffice because they had a reasonable deal ($579 for a premium console, extra wireless controller, and play and charge kit). Those people are now regretting this decision, as dvdboxoffice SCAMMED them out of their money. After orders were taken, they removed the extra controller and ..." Read review
