When placing an order for my DVD, be sure to order the format - NTSC or PAL - for your country/DVD player. Please note that my DVD is encoded to be played in ALL REGIONS, meaning an NTSC DVD will play in any country that utilizes NTSC format and a PAL DVD will play in any country that utilizes PAL format.
