What's a DVD?
How are they different from videos?
What's so special about them?
How do I play DVDs?
Watch out!

 
DVDs have regional codes Watch out!
DVDs are often cheaper in countries outside the UK, but watch out!

Different countries put special codes called 'regional codes' on their DVDs so that people from a country where that film has not been released cannot play them.

You can buy DVD players that will decode the regional code, but they are more expensive.
