Question about Hostel blu-ray from amazon.uk

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I recently received a copy of Hostel blu-ray from Amazon.uk.
It was not sealed and has "rental or resale" on the back cover and on the front of the disc itself. The disc itself looks new(unused). Is this a bd that was intended for rental? Has anyone else had this happen?
Thanks

It should look like a normal BD except the cases are a bit larger.
Did you buy this from a second or third party used from Amazon UK?

My copy of Hostel that I bought from Amazon UK also was not sealed. I thought Amazon was trying to give me a used copy for the price of a new BD. I've since sold it though in light of the upcoming fully-featured US release.

No, I bought is directly from amazon.uk as a new disc.
I have contacted them and they are sending me a replacement free of charge so, if the replacement is the correct version, I have no complaint.

This disc is new.

Most UK discs are sold sealed but some aren't. The "Rental or Resale" warning is on must UK discs including DVD.

Not everywhere in the world sells discs with 3 impossible to remove security seals like the USA.
