What is a DVD Player?
DVD PlayerA DVD player is a device that can read Digital Versatile Discs (DVDs). It then reproduces the data in the form of an audio visual presentation on your TV screen.

What should you look for?
  • Your DVD player should be easy to use.

  • The front panel should be clearly labeled and easy to understand.

  • The player should have easy to navigate on-screen menus and features.
As a simple guide, you should be able to operate the player without the help of the instruction manual.

What is a region free DVD Player?
Certain DVDs could only be played in certain countries. DVD discs are encoded into six different regions as follows:

Region 4: Mexico, South America, Central America, Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Caribbean
Region 5: Russia, Eastern Europe, India, most of Africa, North Korea, Mongolia
Region 6: China
