DVD player regions codes used to be a problem for me in the US. But no more. DVD Ghost gives me a big hand.
As you know, DVDs are encoded with a region. Here’s how it breaks down:
REGION 1 – USA, Canada
REGION 2 – Japan, Europe, Africa, Middle East, Greenland
REGION3 – South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, parts of South Asia
REGION4 – Australia, New Zealand, Latin America (including Mexico)
REGION5 – Eastern Europe, Russia, India, Africa
REGION 6 – China
REGION 7 – Reserved for Unspecified Special Use
REGION 8 – for cruise ships, airlines, etc. ..
REGION 0, 9, or REGION ALL – Discs are uncoded and can be played worldwide
So here in the U.S., we are a region 1. In the UK DVD discs are Region 2. Region 1 DVDs will not play in the region 2 players, and vice versa. But that’s not true. Region codes can, in most cases, be removed from the DVD player with DVD Ghost that unlocks region codes quickly, automatically.
Why do we have DVD region codes?
I’m not expert, but I’m talking to a man who knows more than me. He said something on this subject.
“The films are released in theaters in different parts of the world at different times of the year. To preserve the financial integrity of the theatrical distribution of a particular film, it is not possible (under normal conditions) to have a friend in the U.S., send a DVD copy of film on the country where it can play the DVD on a player there. ”
Thus, in a word, money. However, since the rise of Internet where share massive file, and publication data around the world, it’s pretty ridiculous to have one region code. In fact, many players are now free code. But if yours are not region free, you may be able to get DVD region free codes in seconds … now.
