Zavvi and Arrow are not the same

Hut Group yes own Zavvi but that is just one of various companies they purchased over the years
It's not Zavvi that has a controlling interest in Arrow Films it's the Hut Group that does

Arrow do separate USA only releases on some releases
Zavvi UK is not allowed sell USA releases as these won't have BBFC age ratings

Hut Group has acquired majority stake in Arrow Films over 75%
Hut Group can appoint or remove directors from Arrow as they will have majority voting rights
It's not the same as owning a company outright that may happen later as they have majority shares in Arrow Films at the moment


Hut Group own a lot of different retailers and controls shares with a good few product labels
Hut Group had over £1.61 billion net revenue in 2020 (Zavvi only account for a tiny part of this (Zavvi net revenue globally estimated $89.9 Million for 2020) most of Hut Group reveune comes from other product brands they control or own most of this is beauty products)

List of some of retail setcors Hut Group Own

Zavvi yes will get more exclusives due to Hut Group having controling shares in Arrow but they are still separate companies

Zavvi USA website has been selling Arrow USA only releases a few months now
Example arrow video release of Django is available on Zavvi USA but not Zavvi UK

To get correct price on Zavvi USA it's important you set shipping and region and language to USA as in all settings on Zavvi website are set to USA

From now on consider Zavvi USA and Zavvi UK separate websites
If arrow have a USA and UK release when you purchase on Zavvi USA you are purchasing the USA release

Your Zavvi UK login details should still work but you need to make sure you are on Zavvi USA website by changing your setiings to USA
You also need to remember to change settings back to UK if you want to use Zavvi UK website


Note Zavvi may change price at checkout if shipping address is outside USA this was not happening eariler last month all you had to do was make sure was shipping in settings was set to USA
I just done a test and when I sigined in using my zavvi UK login details the price changed to $69.99


I will test later this week by setting up a new account on Zavvi USA with different login details to Zavvi UK to see what happens when I enter a delivery address based outside USA

It drives me batty when they release an edition like this, with all the bells - touting that it is from "a new 4K scan"......
....and they offer no 4K edition.:mad:
4K Scan does not mean 4K UHD
Films for years even before UHD format existed have had 4K scan of negatives done
4K scan of a negative is about digital file used to do a restoration
Some restorations come from 2K/4K/6K/8K scans of film negatives

Universal did not provide a licence to do a UHD release

It's also complicated by Disney having the rights in other countries due their purchase of Fox

A UHD release in USA may happen at a later time by Universal themselves

I doubt Disney in the other countries they hold the film rights to do a UHD release

Legend is a 2K restoration from a 4K scan of the negative


Universal may at a later time use the 4K scan to do a 4K restoration

Thanks @paulboland thats really helpful, I never knew they owned so many companies and in the beauty area. ESPA!
That’s been really helpful, will have a think and look to order factoring all costs inc poss import duties and their packing which is not known for its sturdyness.
I love this film and as it includes the uk version which I prefer and as there is no uk version due on the horizon may have to bite.
Thanks again

Yes, they do 4K scans and 8K scans even if they don't release a UHD disc.
The point I am making is that we now know that a 4K scan exists. So, why they would not release a 4K edition is really annoying.
it's not unique to this film either - most films are getting a 4K or 8K scan to "future proof" them.
(2K scans are when they are cheaping out on them. (2K scans cost less)).
It's tantamount to announcing a 4K scan and a new restoration....... only to release the result on a lesser format.(n)
we have 4K discs. You did a 4K scan. Why are you relegating the result to 1080p?
(probably to do a double dip.)
...don't even get me started on Criterion Collection doing 4K scans and STILL not doing 4K discs!

I got my Django 4k from zavvi UK site.

Even now I can order blue underground and other us exclusives on the UK zavvi website
Zavvi UK at one stage had django on UK site but had to be removed as Cult Films UK have UK rights

Zavvi then put Django on Zavvi USA website instead
There are a few arrow usa only releases you will now see on Zavvi USA but won't see on Zavvi UK

Zavvi USA is now separate from Zavvi UK
You yes will still see UK releases on Zavvi USA with a few exceptions.
If arrow have both a UK and a USA release if you order from Zavvi USA depending on stock levels you will receive the USA version as in does not have BBFC age ratings
The USA releases are shipped from USA

If you want a UK arrow video release make sure you order from Zavvi UK or the other international zavvi websites

Zavvi UK is not meant to sell any Blu-ray/DVD/UHD unless it's a BBFC certified release
This also another reason why Django was removed from Zavvi UK as its not a arrow UK release

Example:

The New York Ripper - 4K Ultra HD (Includes Blu-ray)

and
Zavvi UK should not selling blue underground dvd/blu-ray/Uhd releases these should be only listed on Zavvi USA Website.

It's an error they on Zavvi UK
Blue Underground are USA releases that are not BBFC certified to be sold in UK

Zavvi does not have third party sellers use there website to sell products

Amazon USA and other third party sellers sell USA releases on Amazon UK but not Amazon EU Sarl
These items are third party sellers and that includes Amazon USA listings on Amazon UK

Legend from Arrow is a 2K restoration from a 4K Scan
The restoration is not a 4K file
