DVDs in Amman


DVD Collection

If you love movies then you will not be short of selection in Amman. The price of a copied DVD is between 1JD – 1.5JD depending on the shop you buy from. I am not going to discuss the rights and wrongs about buying copied DVDs, as I believe the media industry is responsible for such illegal markets by setting its prices so high that becomes extremely difficult to buy an original DVD. If this does not bother you then here is top three:

‘Mousa Sami DVD’ is situated in Down Town Amman. The shop has a huge selection of DVD’s. You are welcome to view all DVDs that you are interested in, before you buy them. The staff are very helpful and speak English very well. No membership is required. Each DVD will cost 1JD and the special offer is buy 5 DVDs and get 1 free.

‘Hi Class Music’ is situated in Bayadar, Amman. The shop is a decent size with lots of Music and DVDs. The selection of DVDs is not particularly up-to-date and I do feel they are slow in getting new releases. Here you are also welcome to view all the DVDs before you buy them. The staff are very friendly and can speak English very well. You are required to become a member and membership is free before you can shop at ‘Hi Class Music’. Each DVD will cost 1.5JD and the special offer is buy 5 DVDs and get 1 free.

‘DVD on Wheels’ is a fairly new service in Amman, where you can order your DVDs via the phone. I personally have not used this service yet but many who have recommend it highly. They have up-to-date selections of DVDs and delivery is quick. The staff do speak English very well and membership which is free is required. Each DVD costs 1.5JD and special offer is buy 4 and get 1 free or buy 5 and get 2 free and so on.

There are many other small DVD outlets scattered around Amman. You will find due to competition many DVD shops will have different offers. Beware of cinema prints where you can see the heads of the people in the cinema whilst the movie was being filmed J My advice is to choose a DVD shop which suits you and stick to it. If for whatever reason, you get a DVD and you didn’t like the quality of the DVD or want to return it because it was such an awful movie, than your regular DVD shop is most likely to offer better service. Alternatively if you have a fast internet access at home, you can watch all the latest programmes and films on www.tvokay.com through streaming.

Enjoy your nights in. :-)

  1. Dont forget Mikes DVD Situated in Khalda near the KFC and the furniture shop Midas. The shop has a wide range of DVD’s, series, music and video games. You are welcome to view all DVDs that you are interested in buying, from a TV on their wall. The staff are very (I sometimes think over) helpful and speak English quite well. No membership is required. Each DVD will cost 1JD and the special offer is buy 5 DVDs and get 1 free, or buy 10 DVD’s and get 3 free. I personally do all my DVD shopping here. And thanks for the number of DVD on wheels!

  2. DVD on wheels is one of the best DVD stores ever! i been ordering DVDs from them for a while. good q. and fast ! :)
    i was wondering why didnt you write something about hamouda dvd?

  3. ‘Joonas’, i forgot about Mikes DVD. I have heard so much about it but never had the chance to shop there.
    ‘Ibrahim’; sorry never heard of Hamouda DVD shop. Please tell us more. I plan to shop at DVD-on-wheels, just to see how good they are. :-)

  4. hi can u plz tell me if there are any stores for documentary DVDs in Amman?

    • You will be able to buy or even rent documentary DVDs from the above mentioned DVD places, or numerous DVD shops in Down Town. If they do not have what you are looking for, you can actually request them, which might take a few weeks.
      I hope this helps.

      • Hi
        Can you please tell me where exactly in Downtown is ‘Mousa Sami DVD’ located?

        Thanks

      • Hi Tawalbeh,
        If you ask anyone where the Al Quds restaurant is in down town. From the Al Quds restaurant the Mousa DVD shop is 3 mins walk. Here are the contact details for the DVD shop. Mousa Sami DVD, Down Town – Tel: Mouse: 0796922206 Sami: 0795276167
        I hope it helps.

  5. I dont recommend hamouda DVD ! wont say all, but like 99% of the DVD they sell there as DVD’s is actually a movie recorded by a cam and its on “DVD” and if u ask if its DVD quality they say yes its DVD Q.
    ABC DVD is just like Hamouda.
    i never bought a dvd, (i download movies from the net ( DVDrip) movies) but a friend of mine buys it .thats how i know.

    • Thanks for the update Jack. What I always used to do was to make them play all the DVDs before i bought them. :-)

  6. just would like to add something about dvd-on-wheels that i think almost everybody knows that it has took a wrong turn by not selling copied dvds from now on they started renting original and old dvds all the other services they newly offer are fantastic but i and many of my friends stopped ordering dvds from their because they started A)renting not selling
    B)old movies and not a lot of series
    C) they moved from a small business which give what the community wants to a company that does what is best for it without fulfilling the wants of the public

    • Thanks for your comment Yazan. It is a shame that they have started to take the turn that they have. I am sure there was a lot of pressure to stay legal :-). From purely a customer point of view, I think I want the option of buying the latest goods. I know most people still go down town to get their DVD fix :-)

  7. don’t forget to put Hamudeh DVD in abdoun, Amman
