About the DVD format:

The DVDs are region-free, which means there are no limitations on which country can view the DVDs. However, the DVDs are created in NTSC format. For those that don’t know, NTSC format is used primarily in the United States and Canada, while PAL format is used in Europe and parts of Asia. NTSC DVD players can not play PAL formatted discs. But most PAL DVD players can play NTSC formatted discs. If you’re concerned that these DVDs will not play in your PAL DVD player, consider getting the digital downloads instead. If you’ve bought NTSC DVDs from the United States before, then these DVDs should work for you just fine. If you’re curious which DVD format your country uses, you can view this list on Sony’s website.
