Australia is Region 4, but all Australian players are unlocked, so are
region free.

and some other parts of the world are region 2. As sold a player will
probably only play the region you are in (USA in your case). As far as
the region compatibility is concerned many players can be made to play
back discs from any region. This is called region hacking and is not
as fearsome as it sounds. Check the list of players and the
instructions here to make your player region free enter the model an

you are ok. If not I'd suggest buying a cheap player, I don't know
about the USA but in the UK DVD players are for sale at less than £20
which I'd guess is about $30 and can be made region free.

the rest of the world the PAL system is used. The good news is that as
far as I am aware all DVD players will correctly play either system so
there should be no problem with that.

get is a VHS from the UK. I don't think that would work, would it?
But, I guess a DVD would be OK, in the US, or elsewhere. Please give
me the possible address of any concern who can sell a Series 3 DVD.
