Then was another recent thread discussing purchases from other regions but I could not find, so I ended up starting a new one. I'm new to buying from other regions. I started primarily for items just not available in the US. However, looking at Amazon UK I noticed some really good prices on US TV shows. For example: - The Wire for $27 US dollars shipped when Amazon in the US has it for $40+. - The Shield for $19 US dollars shipped when Amazon in the US has it for $35+. How many buy PAL versions of US shows because of cheaper prices? Is this pricing difference common or did I just stumble on a few good examples?
