DVD player region codes help control global release dates of movies. DVDs that are set with a region code can only be read by a player with a matching region code that is sold in the same area. For example, North America sells DVD players that are set as Region 1. If a DVD is released with a matching region code, it cannot be played in other areas of the world. Setting a DVD player as region free (or multi region) removes this restriction and allows it to play a DVD from any region.
- Skill level:
