Due to strict DVD distributions across the world, the Motion Picture Association of America enforces region coding. This is one of the ways to fight piracy. This also means that if you bought a DVD in the UK, you won’t be able to play it on your US DVD player, unless you have a code free DVD player.
For people who travel quite a bit or jump from one country to another, the region coding can be very annoying. If you have a DVD bought in the US, you can’t play it in while you are in Asia. Bringing your own US DVD player can be very inconvenient because it means that you need to bring a converter, too. To make things easier, simply purchase a code free DVD player.
The main unique feature of a code free DVD player is the ability to play all kinds of DVDs no matter which country or region they came from. Other special features depend on the model you choose. Some of the unique features you can enjoy on code free DVD players include:
- Playback of all kinds of discs – Aside from a DVD, your unit can also play MP3, CD, VCD, and R/W. You might even find a player that offers support for Blu-Ray.
- Easy usage – DVD players can have more than one remote. The first one is for your basic controls while another may allow you to enjoy special viewing functions.
- Better watching experience – Some players allow you to watch your favorite movie in standard or HD mode.
- Wi-Fi – If you don’t have a Smart TV, you don’t have to worry. Some code free DVD players offer wireless LAN connection.
Aside from just a DVD player, you might also be interested in an entire home theater system that is code free. For those on the go, code free portable DVD players with attached screens are also available.
