I know it is hard for us who live in the UK and other countries that arn't region 1 as more DVDs that I like or want come out in the states and not here.

That's why I have to order most of Shannen's DVDs off Amazon because they only come out in the states, but I have got lucky with some of them as some of the films Shannen is in have come out on DVD in the UK.

I still had to order those off Amazon as I couldn't find them in shops.

So I should get Growing the Big One soon on DVD as it's on order from the states and on it's way.

So I think I got kind of lucky that I have a laptop that will play Region 1 DVDs, but I carn't have region 1 videos as I don't have a region 1 video player. Image

Region X means any region.

Region 1 is for America and region 2 is for Europe.

They are locked because of the different formats, NTSC and PAL. DVDs are cheaper in America so I guess its also a away of preventing people from importing instead of buying them in your own country.

You can buy region free dvd players now which solves everything Image

Your welcome for all the information Shaed I and others have given you.

I wish I could see Shannen's films when they air on TV and other things Shannen does like interviews when they come on TV.

I think though like I said in my other post I have got lucky with getting Shannen films on DVD from America and being able to watch them on my laptop.

Then normally I might get to see the interviews Shannen does if they get uploaded on Youtube. Image

Then sometimes some of the films Shannen has done I might get lucky if they are uploaded on youtube like some of them have been in the past. Image
