    hi,

    HBO R1 charges US$99.
    Paramount R4 charges AU$62 or US$47.

    Rip-off in the US?

    The R4 version has no extras. However, I've seen it for as cheap as AU$35.

    Unfortunately HBO has misread the elasticiy of demand - they would have sold many more copies, including one to me, if they had not set such an exorbitant price.

    Since their drama sets have had the same MSRP of $100 for years, they must be making money at that price.

    Well, whatever their reasoning, here's another sale they've lost because Deadwood is just too expensive. I'll wait a few more months and buy a used set instead. Sorry HBO.

    Also, shouldn't this thread be in the HT Software - TV Shows forum?
