Received Night of champions and Hell in a cell on blu ray yesterday. I was not expecting hell in a cell so quickly. Great surprise. Anyone has news regarding the C M Punk sleeves? I know that they say they would send a email to the winners. till now i didn’t receive any mail but i was wondering if it’s because i lost or they didn’t send the mail yet.
It says on there site that they are going to E-Mail Winners on Monday 4th Febuary and also send them out on the same day
Got my Hell In A Cell Blu Ray from Fremantle this morning which was a great surprise! Glad there sending out the discs early!
Anyone else having problems paying by Maestro? it has the logo at the bottom of the page but doesnt have the option on the Sage pay page. Confused!!
I am a happy customer just got my blue ray of night of champions from Fremantle an they was good enough to even ring me an tell me of they mistake an to say I can keep the DVD as well so thank you Fremantle an I will be useing you again !
Prices are far too high on Blu-Ray, 30-odd euro for a 2BD set is a bit spicy. No free shipping to Ireland is, quite frankly, tantamount to commercial suicide given the company’s audience and Silvervision’s customer base here.
And, something else I picked up on, all of the blurbs just look like a non-fan read the card on Wikipedia and assumed titles were the focus of the WWE show. It comes off as detached and not au fait with the product. Also, the choice of back catalogue to restore is curious – it makes no sense to sell WWE product at full-price that SV is selling off at a fraction of the price. Fremantle need to concentrate on legacy releases and events formerly available as Tagged Classics or US releases that never made DVD/digital previously to stand out.
And where’s Netflix? No-one uses iTunes for digital video content. No-one. DVD on demand is another avenue they’re foolish enough to ignore – make .isos and packaging design downloadable (for a fee) like ROH used to do on out-of-print/commercially “unviable” releases like the AWA/WCCW boxes.
Well, I put my order in on Thursday & just like everybody else who ordered Night of Champions on Blu Ray & received the DVD, I got my DVD yesterday, came at a weird time, was after 3 or 4 in the evening & was in a packet like a Courier had brought it, but nobody knocked, delivery guy just shoved it through.
Blu Ray didn’t come today with the regular post, so, I’m hoping it’s coming by the same method as the DVD came yesterday & that I get it later, will be disappointed though as all e-mails about the mess up said the Blu Ray would come Monday or Tuesday. I’m surprised I never got both together yesterday.
Whilst it’s all well & good telling us we can keep the DVD because of the mess up, I have no need for the DVD, so can only try to sell it on to a friend, eBay or the likes of CEX & other trade in stores for a couple of quid. Plus, the DVD I received whilsts sealed, the disc has come loose & is rattling around in the box, whilst that’s not Fremantle’s fault at all, it is probably gonna hinder me in selling it on as I do not know if the disc is scratched or not & obviously don’t want to break the seal.
Personally I would have prefered if they were going to give us something free, because of their error (Yes, which I know they don’t have to do before somebody points that out, but still), that as long as we all sent the Night of Champions DVD back (For those of us that ordered that Title on Blu Ray & have received the DVD), we could have Live in the UK November 2012 as our freebie instead if they want to give us something away in light of their error.
I simply don’t need the same event on two formats though.
i got both of mine today (the bluray i ordered and the dvd i didnt) that DPD put through my door at around 3.30pm, just caught him as i had come back from posting off some WWE Blurays i had sold (Spare SV ones) and both came in seperate packages but by same courier not royal mail. Bit miffed they were a day late like, but a free DVD cant be sniffed at.
The problem i had though was the same as yours – the DVD was a ”rattler” so ive had no option but to open it to put the disc in place and now need to sell it as ive decided to no longer buy every event on dvd and bluray and sell the dvds i have on bluray since ill never watch them.
i just wonder if the others i preordered (HIAC and SS) will have similar issues – i kind of hope they do!
Being in Portugal, and being used to free shipping from Silvervision, it’s highly unlikely that I’ll order as many blu-rays as I used to.
1) the prices are a bit higher, and in this day and age with all economic problems, seems a bad move to increase prices. It’s not my company, but I have bills to pay so I’ll have to cut somewhere.
2) the 10% discount when you buy 3 is cool to keep, still no free shipping for europe, still not good enough!
3) IF they make free shipping, with those prices, I might consider buying… otherwise, probably will just buy the Wrestlemania BD, and a couple more interesting titles, but that’s it!!
I can’t Tenner if it’s in this article or the last one, but the poster who said shouldn’t we think Fremantle may have deliberately released those high prices first time round to make us think they were listening to us might be right.
Although he did call it ‘Marketing genius’, I’d quite happily call it a CON & believe he may just be right with his theory.
They don’t make them as high as originally announced, BUT, still bump them up in the process.
I just like yourself have stated will have to make some cut backs & be very choosy in what I purchase be ause if the increase & that’s even with being in the UK & getting free postage so I feel for you & other international buyers.
Increases when they’re are economic problems is just wrong, but it’s not just Fremantle though to be fair, it’s everything & it’s just not on.
I have received an email today from FME saying they have accidentally sent me the DVD instead of the blu-ray. TBH I didn’t even think of the mistake, I was just really impressed that they told me to keep the DVD copy as well.
In currently working my way through re-watching all the PPVs and am only up to Backlash 08 so no rush in receiving NOC 2012.
I’ve been really impressed with the start that FME have made
I’m having problems with FME unfortunately. I signed up to the site, pre-ordered some products, clicked checkout, entered my email address and password and pressed enter. Whenever I do this it just keeps telling me to sign in over and over again and it’s getting frustrating as hell. I have emailed them and they said they will get back to on Monday. Anyone else experiencing these problems?
I found this problem with login happening to me as we’ll. it turns out that it had logged me in even though the login screen kept coming up and by clicking ‘my account’ at the top I could access everything I needed. Hope that helps?
Thanks for you’re response, Ryan. I’ll give this a try
http://www.wwedvd.co.uk/image.php?src=images%2Fnight-of-champions-2012.jpg&w=800&h=700 Is that a sticker (about the extras) on the Blu ray or part of the cover artwork?
They told me recently that it’s not a sticker. Can’t confirm it yet without seeing the final product though.
I hear Fremantle might be making an account here soon to respond to comments here directly, so you’ll probably get an answer.
Just emailed FME and received this reply within 5 minutes:
It is a sticker on the outer shrink wrap but I think it has now been removed
It’s not on the artwork
There is one thing i noticed about Fremantle releases is that they have got their logo on the spine of the dvds. Silvervision never done this.
I think Silvervision are gonna have that big sale everyone has been waiting for next week. At the end of the day there is not much left on their site that isn’t on sale!
I’m waiting for Wrestlemania 19. For some reason it’s £17.99 still despite all the other Wrestlemania events being reduced months ago,
They must be still selling good
It just came in the normal post, however in fairness to Fremantle they have already replied to say they will send me the Blu ray copy out on Monday. 🙂
I ordered the Night of Champions Blu ray on Thursday. Received the DVD version today in the post. So fast service, but the wrong product 🙁
That’s what I a worried about did it come recorded delivery
A small error that can be rectified no problem, BUT, shouldn’t be having small errors like this when you’re taken over a new mantle & what to try & kick things off to a good start with your new fan base.
It’s errors like this they need to be preventing.
Agree small error but at least I got a free DVD and if my Bluray turns up by Tuesday no great drama and they contacted me quickly to advise me of the problem they must work saturdays?
did u get the cm punk signed sleeve???
They should make the dvd and blu ray listings separate so you can’t go wrong but I haven’t got my order yet so can’t check
They are doing the draw next week and will be sending your order before that
I got my blue ray today so I am a happy customer Fremantle even phoned me to tell me they mistake so all round very happy bout to watch night of champions on blue ray
They said they are in talks to release some wwe films ,not the knucklehead again
Three they mentioned insider ,reunion and bending the rules ,they won’t be releasing no holds barred
Inside out with triple h I meant
I asked them about preorders they said about
Best of in your house
Bret hart dungeon
These will be be coming out in April to June and preorders will be up in a few weeks
Is it just me or does the site look very similar to Silver Vision’s?!?
The European postal charge is £3.10 regardless of how many units your order
How does that work with preorders that are sent separately? If I preorder 3 items, will I have to pay postal charges 3 times?
NO, you only pay £3.10 per order!
Thanks for clearing that up. I interpreted your earlier post as there being no difference in shipping cost between a single package with one unit and a single package with more units. Which is still true, but the same applies to multiple packages sent as parts of one order. So there’s no reason not to preorder as it won’t cost me additional postal fees.
3.10 is still not free. If SV could afford it, so can American Idol’s distribution company.
Fremantlemedia wwedvd uk are also looking into having PayPal and setting up account on eBay uk
For those who were wondering, if you preordered more than one dvd/Bluray, they will send each item separately. Just receive the news from an email of wwedvd.co.uk
As all of the pre orders have different release dates on them i would expect that they would be delivered separately!
A Merchandising don’t. They wait until all items are in stock and send them all at once.
I have just been told by email the night of the champions dvd/blu ray will be sent and the cm punk sleeve winners will be drawn next week and would be sent next week
Hope I win
can you order over the phone
I am happy they are running but few problems on my post below ,one thing is I visited Silvervision this morning still got to look at see if more deals lol
Would have ordered four blu rays last night, only they don’t accept Maestro as payment. Not happy.
Yes they do! look at botton left on there home page where it says sage pay. It has the logo for Maestro there. Its the same payments system as silver vision done
The Sage pay logo says it will accept that payment type
I ordered last night ,on my order page it says you can view your order ,it came up with words and data ,does anyone else have this problem
I had the same problem myself, e-mailed them this morning to mention this & the lack of encryption when placing orders.
Got a speedy response saying that both problems will be getting looked into by the web team.
I got two emails ,one they said sorry what was your question and the other was your order will be processed and will be sent in stock .
The question I said was when you
1 go on account
2 go to orders section
3 view order
When viewing order it dosent give you nothing just data ,it does give order number but I think it suppose to give you picture what you ordered and the rest
I am glad I ordered one ,I will see if they improve before ordering anymore ,not to confident at moment ,I might stick to amazon or sainsburys ,amazon have never let me down
It’s been fixed the view order problem !!!!!
I’ve just put down my first order of 7 of the 8 titles available, £103 in total.
Which one did you decide against?
The best of the ppv matches as I will have all the shows on blu ray already. I collect for content only, not just to have every iteration of every title.
Fair enough, I guessed incorrectly (Live in the UK). 😉
I think your right the odd one out best of ppv ,if you got ppvs of year ,I also wouldn’t buy live in uk at moment just to many good ones to choose ,I can’t wait when preorders of nitro ,iyh and bret hart go come ,I wonder when?
I’ve never bought a live in the uk full price before, but I got carried away ordering last night. In Lanzarote at the mo, hoping to have night of champions to watch when I get back to the miserable snow next week!
I don’t think anyone wants live in the uk with all this snow lol
Yeah come on people lets give a big cheer to Roly
Website does not encrypt the page when entering your details,
I think you mean why is this? I don’t know ask them
Love the look of the site, top marks Freemantle.
Just made my first order NIght of Champions 2012, Hell in a Cell 2012, Top 100 Raw moments and The Attitude Era.
does it ship to australia?
They don’t have rights for Australia its just Europe like Silver Vision had click on the DVD AU link at top of the page
Fantastic new site, first order placed earlier today 🙂
Loving the trailers… what the heck are they pouring into that corvette?
i hope they will have free shipping in the near future. Till then Silvevision will work fine for me.
Their website does not encrypt the page when entering your details!
How do i pre-order Night of Champions?
can you order over the phone
I’ll care when they can ship to the US…
There is always Amazon.co.uk, they ship to the US and the prices are the same.
Sites looking Great! My first order is in – 100 Raw Moments & Attitude Era Blu-Ray’s! I wanted to use the ‘buy 3, get 10% off’ but I couldn’t find any Blu-Ray which interested me since Im in to Documentaries and old sets with superstars from before 2002 all the way to 1992!
I just hope they make 2 separate 2-3 Disc Blu-Ray sets now for Triple H & HBK! Also if possible, then 1 3Disc Blu-Ray set which is all based on D-GENERATION X from start to finish! (1996-97 – Present) 😉
dont forget to pre order NOC as you can win 1 of 50 singed blu rays or dvds. there is 25 of eac all signed by CM Punk
How do you know that? Dosen’t say anything about it on the site.
We said it in the last paragraph of the post and it’s also right here: WWEDVD.co.uk. Hope that helps (good luck!) 🙂
Thank you very much! Pre-Order time!
Oh & whilst I mentioned this on another Forum when I first saw it back in November, whoever designed the Cover for the November 2012 Live in the U.K. DVD needs major props! I love that cover & hope they are kept as being resposnisble for designing all other future Live in the U.K. artwork.
I also love how they know all the dates for the November 2013 Tour now as well when they don’t normally get announced until the April shows, that’s an excellent plus to the site.
WWE website claims Fremantle holds the rights for Europe & The Middle East, but I can’t order from Israel. So much for months of wait. Looks like Amazon.com and a multi region DVD player for me. Disappointing.
Told you they come good even though everyone thinks I work for Fremantle Ha Ha the site looks great can’t wait for them to complete all the coming soon sections
Just one thing on the cm punk competition it says anyone who pre orders can win, but on the page to buy night of champions it says buy it now ,I know they will honour this but bit of a mistake
It’s not a mistake you can buy NOC now and it wont count as a pre order for the competition!
It does providing you order before Monday I emailed them to ask the same question
I’m still gonna buy the 2011 and 2012 titles that i still do not have from Silvervision while they still have them!
Once they have caught up with those other pre orders i hope they will begin to release them a bit quicker in future!
Come inside the show’s about to start and guaranteed to blow your visa apart!
got my first pre order two got a little problem at first but now its good , i’m from Belgium my currency is € if i what to checkout it doesn’t work in € currency changed it in £ and it works fine 🙂 BTW nice new site . just hope they ship it not together what i mean is with silvervision if you got a pre order and a in stock item they already shipped the in stock item
I’m from Belgium too and i was wondering the same question. Will they deliver the blu-rays or dvds one by one as silvervision used to do or will they send only one parcel with everything? If anybody knows it would be great to share it so as to clarify because the website is not clear about this.
I’m waiting for the Attitude Era to be in stock before i use them
Infact i’m gonna pre order it tonight:)
Wow, very impressed with the website. Well organised and very easy on the eye
Has anyone registered yet ,is the site safe ie when paying ,I see night of champions is buy now so his that already ready to be dispatched
I really like the website. I already placed my 1st order, and i’m really happy about the by 3 or more get 10% off, which I alway did at Silvervision.
they should also release the back catalogue of 2012 ppvs on blu ray & dvd
Site looks superb, but I still feel the £2 extra charge on DVD’s & Blu Ray’s is really unnecessary.
Not this again!
Site does indeed look great, but I am in agreement with this comment & I still don’t feel comfortable having to pay more on the products. Don’t care what anybody else says or thinks of my posts, all these £2’s add up over a period of time on items ordered, if I was to pull up everything from my SilverVision account that I’ve spent over the years is quite ridiculous (Yes through mine & other people’s choices of spending, but that’s not the point), so add up all the £2’s on the amount of items I or others tend to buy when ordering is a lot! Especially when we all order 3 or more for our 10% off
As for the poster below the original, why not this again, it’s a fair enough question as to ask Fremantle for a justification of the increases, particularly in today’s climate with recessions & what not. SilverVision could do it & had no problems & basically everybody that shopped with them will move over to Fremantle so the orders are going to be rolling in as proved in this thread with people already ordering.
Excellent site though, love the look, the layout, the way everything flows, top notch job done.
Look forward to the Facebook, Twitter & Chat links all getting sorted & going live next.
