Hi,

The sahara series are available on DVD in the UK and Australia (region 2, PAL) only as far as I know.
If you live in Europe you can play the DVD on your DVD player, but if you live in another region then your player must have region-free or region select settings to play the discs.
The dvd is available from almost all UK DVD webshops, such as www.play.com and www.amazon.co.uk

Is there a possibility that the dvd will be made available in the U.S.?

srutzick, I am currently in the US on a business trip from Ireland. I bought the DVD from Amazon.co.uk and got it shipped to OR.. You can pick up a Norcent DVD from Wally Mart or Amazon for $50 and then press a few commands on the remote to make it play any region..If you want more info about the player, reply here and I will help

igibson,
what is a norcent dvd? Is it some kind of device to add onto my dvd player? Please advise.

I wish Palin would make the dvd available to be compatible with USA players. Maybe there will be demand now that the series is being broadcast in the USA. I would appreciate your comments on how to run the dvd in my region. Thanks.

Norcent is a make of DVD..like Sony / JVC etc.. This is a DVD player where the region coding can be removed with the press of a few buttons on the remote..check out Walmart.com and type Norcent and you will see it... AMAZON.COM are now selling the unit for $49 with a further $10 rebate...thats nearly as cheap as the Sahara DVD !!! Rgds IAN

I have a mulit-region DVD player. Do you know if the Region 2 DVD you purchased from amazon.co.uk plays through a U.S. television. Don't I need a PAL TV or converter? Thanks.

I am unsure... The DVD player I got from AMAZON has an automatic PAL / NTSC convertor... Maybe see if you can find someone with a R2 DVD to try.. MY gut feeling is that it would work though as the DVD is region coded.. the NTSC / PAL is just the output format...

Constantfervor... I am unsure where you are located but I am currently on my Honeymoon in Vegas.. there are DVD's on Vegas available in R1 and R2 for 10 bucks... maybe look for a local tourism DVD
