2) Besides the USA, where can I play these DVD’s?
ALL titles are available in the following formats:
A) DVD Region 1 ®Dolby Stereo 2.0 and selected items 5.1 Surround
A word about DVD Region 1: Though technically Region 1 DVD’s are used for players in the USA and Canada, many European consumers now own a multi-regional or “upgraded” DVD player that allows playback of Region 1 DVD’s.
Explanation: NTSC (Region 1) and PAL (Region 2) are 2 different types of DVD formats. NTSC (Region 1) are playable in all United States, Canada, Bermuda, Caribbean and US Territories DVD players. PAL (Region 2) are playable in Europian DVD players. But that doesn’t mean that if you live in Europe you wont be able to play NTSC (Region 1) DVDs which is what we offer.
Some DVD players can play BOTH kinds of DVD formats (they are called Multi-Region or “Region Free” DVD players). They are also known as “reconditioned DVD Players” in Europe. Check your brand name and model number on google.com to see if your DVD Player can be “reconditioned” and converted to Multi-Regional (or ALL Regions) if you don’t already own one. If a hack is available they will show you the procedure using your remote control. Usually this is done by a series of pressing different buttons on your remote. Region free DVD players at this point in 2020 should cost you no more than 50 UK Pounds/Euros so it may be worth the investment if you can’t hack your current DVD Player.
ATTENTION: European customers please check your DVD player brand name and model number for this playback capability. In many cases most European computers can also play Region 1 DVD’s
B) VHS available in SP MODE ®HiFi Stereo Sound is available for ALL countries (NTSC, PAL or SECAM)
