    Post TVB Released VCD/DVD Questions

    If you're a big fan of all the past old tvb series, and hate to view them on low quality VCD format(with heavy editing) and really wish tvb could release them on DVD format (with full episodes and proper endings) Please could you help sign this petition for tvb to release them on DVD format. I signed it myself and hope that everyone who agrees with what they say in there should sign it. Please!!!

    I appreciate your help!!![o

    You only need to include ur name and e-mail adress:

    Yeah. And they're out on PAL vcd format too, which is not good for the US NTSC tv system.

    Yeah and Vietnamese viewers are lucky since they get series released on DVD in their language. Also, they don't release their newer series like other productions do.

    you know...in order for a series to get DVD status, there must be demand........if all series get the DVD treatment, but there is no demand for it, what do you think TVB is going to do with the excess bagage?

    It could also be the cost factor... isn't it way cheaper to copy on to CD then to a DVD... (not really sure what is market price for the bulk cd or dvd anymore).

    Also I would love for TVB to release DVD as the next guy but I am kind of happy with the VCD (except for the deleted and cutted scenes). I just hope they do lower the price a bit so I can get more

    Every TVB series since Point of No Return and on have English subtitles. However, they're only on the DVDs of TVB releases. Meaning you can choose Enlgish subs, Chinese subs, or no subs. Tai Seng dubbed Hidden Treasures from the DVD version of this series with the English subs on. Whether or not it was intentional..... no one knows.

    The DVD is for rent I think. I'm pretty positive that Vietnamese versions are also on DVD.

    If they do release DVDs then hopefully they'll be special features like lost episodes or deleted scenes.

    I'm all for it, but how much do you think TVB will charge per disc? How many episodes per disc?
