Our standard DVDs are released Region Free in PAL format.
1 - DVD Coding - All our DVD's are coded region free i.e. they will play in any region.
2 - DVD Player /TV -  You will need access to a multi-region DVD player (i.e. one which will ‘play’ any Region of DVD) and a TV which can receive the PAL signal.
 
Most DVD player manufacturers now sell players that are multi-region ( will play all formats) and most modern tv's allow you to select NTSC / PAL format in the settings but please check what you have. If you are in any doubt please consult your electrical retailer before making a purchase of a DVD.

If you fail to get a DVD to play on your home DVD / TV system remember the DVDs will always play on PCs and laptops with DVD capability.
