Re: English DVD rental shop

The title of this thread is "English DVD rental shop", but aren't most all DVDs for rent and purchase throughout Switzerland available with the sound track in the original English??

Re: English DVD rental shop

yes, Swiss-German DVDs are switchable to English, as you point out. however, this is only possible if the movie is produced in English. the Germans take months to put American films on DVD in German for their market. my shop has everything the US shops have for rent, some much sooner than even in the US, and certainly much sooner than the Swiss-German shops. (there are, of course, a few exceptions to the general rule.)

please do feel free to come by anytime and browse our DVD stacks.

Isn't that one of the reasons DVD pushed out videos, apart from the quality angle ?

Re: English DVD rental shop

hi there
to a point if the film was originally in english. the reason for the heading is that we separate ourselves from other shops in that we have no Deutsch
and stock many films but they have to be in english or have english subtitles.
i invite you to check our shop out if you have interest in seeing items that are in many cases not for rent elsewhere (excluding shops that sell).

have a good sunday
joey

Re: English DVD rental shop

Just out of interest, but I recall a few years ago there were moves to stop the importation of Zone 1 DVDs (so-called grey market), mainly because the French speaking Swiss were importing them from Canada, and it competed unfairly with European DVDs... I guess it didn't go through?

This is no longer a problem, especially in the German-speaking part of Switzerland. Other stores also may have some Code 1 DVDs, but our selection is definitely the biggest.
