Welcome to Movietyme - we hope to provide you with the best online shopping
This site uses SSL (secure Sockets Layer) software, an industry standard
that is amongst the best software available for secure commerce
transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information so that it cannot
be read as it travels across the internet.
One great new feature that we are especially proud of (which we believe to
be unique) is the Profile section of your account area. This acts as a sort
of a mini "Filofax" that allows you to keep different information, to use
when making purchases. Simply select the profile you wish to use when making
a particular purchase (or create a new one) and this will be used for that
Also, another unique feature is a personal search engine for each and every
customer which will allow you to find particular information about an order.
Search by Ordered Title, Order Number or search by Order Date, and you will
receive results based on your search paramaters.

otherwise. Customers will require a suitable DVD player and TV to be able to

purchase to be advised. It is not illegal to watch or own DVDs from other

accept it back if it is proven to be faulty.
We cannot specify if a title contains RCE (Regional Coding Enhancement -
which is a digital enhancement added to some Warner Bros and Columbia DVDs
to stop region 1 (R1) DVDs from playing on Region-free DVD players. You need
to check to see if your player is RCE 'friendly')
), and any purchases of products that are marked uncut are at the customers
discretion. We cannot specify if a title is cut or uncut.

If you wish to purchase a product: You will see that some buy buttons have
the USA flag, some have the Canadian flag, and some have a generic look.
Quite simply, if the product has a USA flag - it is from the USA, if a
product has a Canadian flag - it is from Canada, and if a product has a
generic look, the point of supply is not of particular importance. Click the
buy button of the product you wish to buy, the product will be added to the
shopping cart in the right hand column of the screen. You can either
continue your shopping experience or simply click the the Cart/Check link in
the shopping cart box to be taken through the purchase process. You will be
required to click a box that says you accept Movietyme terms and conditions,
all purchases are subject to our terms and conditions.
Please note: There are fewer DVD suppliers in Canada, and therefore Canadian
DVD's are subject to greater delays. Products sourced from the USA are
generally shipped quicker, and do not have bi-lingual covers (covers with
both English and French writing which some people consider unsightly).
On the home page of the site you will see boxes with category headers, these
boxes will feature highlights of products that are now either available to
