i know this is not really related to the DVD in USA, just an interesting note....

It seems the Season 1 DVD that i ordered from Amazon.co.uk is reigons 2 and 4... i live in australia (reigon 4), and had my computer all patched up to play, but then PowerDVD says its reigon 4... i have yet to try it on a standalone Region 4 player yet tho... It still seems to work when i uninstall DVDGenie and made sure PowerDVD is set back to R4. i was quite happy about this, being in australia... deprived of futurama!!!

Wow, we have a member here from Singapore? Futurama's really gone global!

How many regions of DVD playing is there? I didn't know Australia had its own region. I always though the Americas had Region 1 and everyone else has Region 2. It would make sense because it's how the NTSC/PAL standards work.

Sorry, but it's not just "USA" and "the rest"   wink
Europe/Japan is region 2, Europe uses (but for the french) PAL, Japan uses NTSC, so it has nothing to do with that. The regions were introduced by Hollywood to make sure the money flows like they want it, too. EG, usually Europe gets Movies and DVDs some months later and they do not want to change that really.
I seriously doubt that the Futurama DVDs are region 4 though... There would be no reason for that without FOX.au distributing them. (FOXhome.de/uk/au are competitors. It sounds stupid, but European DVD exports to au would be seen as stealing biz from Foxhome.au, even though it ends up in the same big pot in the end)
