Zone 2

British DVDs are zone 2 (Europe/Japan), while the USA is zone 1.

Most DVD players can be made regionfree, either by a code that is entered with the remote, or by a simple modification that can be done by a service man. Search the internet for the exact model name and "region-free" for more information.

In Europe, a lot of DVD players are made region-free when sold, as many film fans want to be able to watch US DVDs.

This is not illegal, BTW. A DVD player maker that offers region-free players would violate his DVD license contract, but a shop or consummer can legally modify the players afterwards.
