Was I misinformed by Amazon UK? Can't Post

A few days ago I preordered the TH DVD+UV version but never received the code.
Today I contacted Amazon UK and they told me that the code was only attached to the Blu Ray and and the Steelbook version.

Then I browsed on Youtube and saw this video where Armitage and Nesbitt meintion the code being along the DVD and Blu Ray.

So in Thorin's words... what in Durin's name is going on??

The code was only with the Blu-ray DVD [In reply to] Can't Post

I have ordered both the standard DVD and the Blue-ray version, and only got a code with the latter. Amazon emailed it to me on the same day that I ordered the Blue-ray DVD.

How many versions are there, anyway? [In reply to] Can't Post

I bought mine in-store, the only 2 choices were BluRay and a 2-disc Special Edition (which included Ultraviolet and had a sticker advertising the sneak peak); I purchased the second. Did your DVD have 1 disc or 2?

Ah, I think you may be thinking about the US editions [In reply to] Can't Post

I was talking about the UK editions. There is no Special Edition of the standard DVD for the UK, just a single-disk standard DVD, plus the Blu-ray edition.

Oops, sorry! [In reply to] Can't Post

Still a good question though--how many different editions around the world?! Smile

That video was posted on The Hobbit FB... [In reply to] Can't Post

So, i'm assuming it was for the US.

The Hobbit UK FB https://www.facebook.com/TheHobbitUK have posted on their wall how you can get access to a sneak peek.

Also, there was a message on Amazon UK The Hobbit DVD and Blu-rays pages, saying if you pre-order The Hobbit AUJ on Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D or Blu-ray steelbook from Amazon.co.uk and they will send you a code. http://www.amazon.co.uk/...p;pf_rd_i=B005EEUHW8

I bought the US special edition dvd and got no code [In reply to] Can't Post

I was not bothered enough to follow up whether I had misunderstood all the info I had read but I would like to know whether I was supposed to get it if anyone else with the dvd did get it.

Was the sneak peek or Ultraviolet advertised on the box? [In reply to] Can't Post

Mine has stickers for both on the outer box, and the code for both (UV and Sneak Peek) was the same. I didn't really care at that point though, I was just too excited to finally get the movie on DVD!

I also got a free 2-liter bottle of a Pepsi product, but all they had was Diet Pepsi (yuk).

I got it with the DVD [In reply to] Can't Post

but not in an e-mail. The UK folks got the code in an e-mail because their copy is not shipping until after today. In the US, since the DVD or Blu-Ray shipped before the event, the code was in our DVD box.

I am not in the US [In reply to] Can't Post

and my dvd has not turned up yet so I can't say what is actually on it..

I bought the only dvd package that was on Amazon US as far as I can see and it was called the 'special edition' and includes the UV thingy.

Maybe, I was not given the code because I am not in the US.

Amazon US did not e-mail the codes [In reply to] Can't Post

The code will be inside your box when it arrives. You can use the code to view the archive, which will be available for a couple weeks, I think.
