Pole to Pole DVD available in US?!?! by canaveralgumby on 29 March 2004 1:48am
 
Hi, all. I think I asked this before, but I can't find it anywhere. I've typed "Pole to Pole with Michael Palin" on amazon.com and towerrecords.com. The response that comes up is "International Pole Dancers Competition" I'm trying to come up with a funny quip about Michael and pole dancing but my left brain is failing me at the moment.

Sadly, no. And from the looks of it, none of the Palin Travel titles will be issued in the US anytime soon (if ever).

The alternative is to buy Region 2 DVDs from the U.K. I get mine from Amazon.co.uk. Others on this site have recommended Play.com.

As for getting a multi-region, or region free DVD player, you may already have one. I have a couple of Philips DVD players and a Norcent and all them were able to be reprogramed, without opening the chasis, to be able to read region 2 discs. (None of them were over $100.) One of the sites that lists "dvd hacks" is http://www.dvdrhelp.com/dvdhacks. One of the things you need to make sure of is whether or not the player can convert PAL to NTSC (the UK picture standard to US standard).

Peace,

bruckhorn
