"Regional" DVD/VHS formats

Recommended Posts

I need help...


There are a good number of great movies and TV programs out there internationally that I would purchase on DVD (or VHS) if it were not for the "You-live-in-a-region-where-this-DVD/VHS-format-will-not-play" messages I keep getting.


Is there anyone who can tell me whether I need to purchase DVD and VHS players from these "regions", or is there something I can do here in the USA to have my players modified?


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I'm by no means an expert, but I looked into this a couple of years ago. If you by a VCR or DVD player from another region, you would have to buy a converter to hook the machine up to your TV. American TV's are not compatible with other region equipment.


The other option is buyng a multiregion VCR or DVD player. For the VCR, they are expensive, running around $350.00. I believe Apex DVD players carry multiregional ability.
