This week, WWEDVD.co.uk sent out an email notifying WWE DVD and Blu-ray buyers in the United Kingdom that they are now officially “under new management”.

Below is a snippet of the email received by customers:

Hello member of the WWE Universe,

We are contacting you as you are a highly valued customer of WWEDVD.co.uk (the official UK retailer for WWE DVDs and Blu-rays) and we wanted you to know of some changes we are making to the business.

What has changed?
WWE DVD is now under new operational management. We understand that there have been some issues as of late with our general customer service and order fulfilment. Our customers experience is of number one importance to us and so we just wanted to let you know that we have begun taking steps to rectify these issues.

How will it affect you?
You can expect to see faster delivery times from us as we are improving our fulfilment processes and a better and more personal customer service level. Don’t worry, we will still be supplying the same full catalogue for all the WWE DVD & Blu-ray titles you love!

Several eagle-eyed WDN readers spotted a familiar company name signed off in the notification – Gold Ant Entertainment – the company that rose from the ashes of the former UK WWE DVD licensee, Silver Vision, after they parted ways with WWE back in 2012.

To answer the main question we’ve been inundated with since the above announcement, no — there has NOT been a changeover of the WWE Home Video license in the United Kingdom as that remains with FremantleMedia and will do so for the foreseeable future.

Instead, “new management” refers only to the company operating the WWE DVD UK shop site which, since at least 2015, has been ran independently and not by FremantleMedia.

As such, fans can be assured that this news causes no disruption to WWE DVD buying in the UK. All of the latest titles are available through the usual avenues, primarily Amazon.co.uk.

WWE DVD UK - Under New Management!


The latest inductee announced for this year’s Hall of Fame is none other than Diamond Dallas Page – and his new WWE DVD is now just over 1 month from release!

“Diamond Dallas Page: Positively Living” is still not yet available to pre-order on Amazon.com (presumed to be an error since later titles are), however we’ve now received updated cover shots of the US version DVD and Blu-ray, which you can check out below.

In case you missed it, a documentary portion will be the main feature of the set and that’s slated to run for approximately 1 hour and 8 minutes, or 90 minutes if you’re including the additional documentary-like stories on top. With the match compilation extras that makes for a complete DVD runtime over 7 hours and a Blu-ray runtime around the 8 hours and 30 minute mark.

@Asaf, if you are looking to buy WWE : RoadBlock 2016 {DVD}, get it cheaper on Amazon.co.uk

I don’t think anybody but Asaf is, lol. Surely that must be the worst selling PPV DVD ever.

It was a general inquiry

Interesting. I’m still blocked on their twitter page for saying three months are a long wait for a PPV in the Network era.

I don’t have a problem with neither Silvervision nor Fremantlemedia. They both have given me great service including earlier deluveries!

Whether the DVDs are manufactured by Silver Vision or Fremantle is I think neither here nor there, as the DVDs themselves seem the same as ever – it was the great customer service through the website that was the best thing about Silver Vision. Therefore, if some of the great Silver Vision staff are now going to be overseeing the WWEDVD.co.uk website, that basically IS like having Silver Vision back for me. Great news!

I certainly agree with you there, I always liked Silver Vision better than Fremantle Media but I don’t know where Golden Ant is coming from

Wonder what Steve and the other Silvervision-guys are doing today?! Great interview back in 2012..shame it came to an end some months later.. when Clearvision was announced as the company to license TNA dvd in UK and Europe, and they advertised that their goal was to re-release the whole back-catalogue, I jumped in the sky of joy..that would have meant the original 6 pre-Navarre produced sets would see the daylight again..and to presumed reasoanable prices too.. Unfortunately, that went down the drain.. As a collector of physical releases, I find joy in the places where I still can buy to… Read more »
