No legally licensed and sold blu-ray or DVD should have the broadcast censorship unless I am very much mistaken.

That said, if you're in the US those blu-rays will not play on your region A/1 blu-ray player.

You don't want to pretty sure your way out of $80 plus possible shipping, there are ways around it but by default blu-ray players and software are required to be region-locked. Blu-rays also don't play on default Windows software, and you need a blu-ray compatible disk drive. Make sure you're got all that and that your software will play region B/2 blu-rays.

I don't know much about this so it might be easier or harder than I'd anticipate, I dunno.

You also need an HDMI compatible monitor and graphics port on your computer as well as an HDMI cable to connect the two. The first time I bought a blu-ray disk I found my monitor wasn't compatible and I had to buy a new one.

If you have a mix of blu-rays from different regions, your drive will almost certainly ask to change regions each time you insert a different type of disk. The drives I have seen have a limited number of chances to change, so after you change your region about 5 times it will lock at the region of the last disk.

Can I ask for your help again

It turns out my computer might not be able to play blu ray so i'm gonna buy the DVD, the question is will the DVD be as uncensored as the blu ray? and have the scenes not included in the TV version aswell? After some research i'm not actually sure although what I researched was like 2-4 years old so... still not sure...

I don't know for sure because I don't own them, but I would find it very bizarre if the DVDs and blu-rays didn't match or were incomplete in some way. You can see it sometimes with the theatrical release of movies with extreme adult content like Mardock Scramble, but even then if you buy it you get the "director's cut"/uncensored version as well. And since the content in FZ isn't even sexual I don't think there's anything that would require censors before being sold in the UK.

The only thing is that adds an extra hoop since computer DVD drives are also region locked like DVD players, not just the software as is the case for blu-rays. There are ways around that I imagine but I don't know what they might involve.

Edit: There don't seem to be comments about censorship in any of the UK Amazon pages either.

The post you linked to originally talks about having obtained a RAW version of the disks in February 2012, while the series was still on the air in Japan. It is almost certain that they were talking about the original Japanese series discs that go on sale while the series is on TV. The international versions usually don't come out until months or years later.

As it is the Japanese version some of the scenes may have been altered so MVM could get the 15 certificate in the UK. Then again the uncut version may have already rated a 15 version and no changes have been made.

The only way to tell for sure if those scenes mentioned in the post are still in the UK DVD version is for someone who owns a UK DVD to check for you. I'm planning to buy the DVDs in the future but I still have a pile of 30 DVD sets to get through, so it could be a couple of years.

The UK censors primarily for sexual conduct, violence and profanity. As Fate/Zero is particularly violent, some of the scenes may have been edited. However, the 15 Certificate is the second highest rating in the UK (the top one being 18, for extremely violent or sexually explicit material) so the odds are that censorship of these DVDs is minimal, if anything has been removed at all.

That's very fair, considering what laws are like to begin with I really shouldn't make assumptions.

I just checked the bbfc website and they report that the Fate/Zero episodes were accepted as uncut. Rather bizarrely their site only mentions episodes 1 to 21, even though the Amazon links you gave cover all 26 episodes in the set.

Here is a link to the bbfc rating page for the first 6 episodes - http://www.bbfc.co.uk/releases/fatezero-video-1.
