"How to play Cricket"

How to play Cricket:

All DVD’s are rated to play in a certain Region. When first devised the World was split into 6 Regions with the intention of selling DVD’s to each dedicated Region. This was to prevent piracy and the release on DVD in a part of the world where the film had yet to be shown theatrically. Therefore usually when you buy a DVD player it will normally only be capable of playing DVD’s for the region purchased. However as time has gone on DVD players are being sold as already capable of playing all 6 Regions and people are also having their player converted to Multi-Region capability. In fact some DVD players only require a software or setting fix to change to Multi-Region capability. There are a lot of sites dedicated to this information, so check out your Model to see if there is a quick fix available. You really need to read your player manual which will tell you what regions it was initially intended to play.

The majority of all current titles play only in one specific region unless otherwise noted. Most DVDs sold by us (unless otherwise stated in the listing description) are encoded for Region 2 only and may not work on DVD players in other countries.

Currently, there are six global region codes that identify a DVD's compatibility with the players typically sold in that region, or with multi-region players.

The Regions are:

1: US, US Territories and Canada.
2: UK, Europe, Japan, South Africa, Middle East, Egypt, Greenland.
3: South-East Asia, East Asia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Philippines, Indonesia.
4: Australia/New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Central and South America, Mexico, Carribean.
5: Former Soviet Union, Indian sub-continent, Africa, Eastern Europe, North Korea and Mongolia.
6: China.
7 & 8: Reserved for International venues (Airplanes, Cruise Ships etc).
0: No Region encoding (region free) therefore can be played by any player.

    Fascinating, but entirely irrelevant.
