    For NEW members you get the second year FREE.

    Most modern DVD players in the USA are able to play
    PAL format DVDs. They automatically convert the PAL
    encoding to suit US TV systems (NTSC).
    This is transparent to the user. But older DVDs do not
    have this capability.  So I always format the DVDs I
    produce as NTSC whenever I get an order from the US
    to ensure that anyone over there can play them.
    A PC or Mac that has a DVD drive and appropriate software will also be able to play a DVD whatever the format.
