Avatar Imagealegria35 says: Grrr... why was it released earlier in India than here in the US?.. I'm mad, and jealous...Avatar Imagemissdelbridge says: Seems ages away for us British fans!! Not fair :( Can't wait to get it :DAvatar Imagekiwimci says: They can't release on the same day because a variety of different home entertainment companies are the distributors of the DVDs. I won't bore people but if anyone wants to know how it filters down message me and I'll tell you. So... technically... we could see this DH preview today?! You know in the press release it says nothing of DH. What if it isn't on the Indian one? Oh I feel dead nervous now. C'mon India get us that preview. Also how much effort do the Indian retailers go into a HP release. I haven't seen such a ho-ha over a DVD release since PS. Also this day 8 years ago PS was released worldwide in theatres!! Ah I remember it well! Avatar Imagekiwimci says: Thanks Leaker. I read most of those in the script anyway.

I think you might still be able to see the Deathly Hallows sneak peak with your disc. Have you ever used Interactual dvd player program before? I think if you put your dvd into your computer and use that program(which I think is free to download) it might have a link in the menus or somewhere on the disk to the Deathly Hallows sneak peak which might actually be online on a WB site. At least that's how I think I remember seeing the one for HBP on the OOTP dvd. Or they might be doing it with a completely different way for this release, who knows.Avatar ImageShinyPineapple says: grr jealous!!! my cousin called to tell me she bought it and loves it :P wish i was thereAvatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: People in India right now are so LUCKY!!Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: lucky, lucky, lucky!!!Avatar ImageRobynAlexa says: It comes out tomorrow here in Norway!

Funny how after I uploaded these stuff, several others videos has appeared with the same video. PS. I checked it with Interactual Player and unfortunately there isn't, it did have with OOTP, but not with HBP.Avatar Imagenikachus01 says: I got the Blu-Ray version and there is no DH Feature on the disk. The Feature is exclusive to a BD-Live which goes live on December 8 (from what I remember off the top of my head what it said on the back cover)Avatar ImageEnricoDc says: And also in the Philippines, i wondering why there's no press release here but thanks to SnitchSeeker for reporting weeks ago that the HP6 DVD will be available here in the Philippines, same with India, South Africa and Israel, starting November 16, 2009. And here i am i already had a copy of the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince 2-Disc Special Feature, Unfortunately there's still NO Ultimate editions of SS & CoS.Avatar ImageSmitch says: Aw, lucky India!
