Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me answer this question. I am looking to watch a NTSC format DVDr that I believe is region free, I was just wondering if this will still play on my PAL console. Many thanks.

Great answer ha but sadly I don't have the disc as I was deciding whether or not to purchase it from someone based on people's experiences as I didn't want to get the disc and it not to work. Thanks

Well, in that case, I'm gonna have to guess it won't work since it's in NTSC format. But idk for sure so I guess that's not that helpful, lol

Yeah you're probably right, thanks for answering at least. It was just a pro-wrestling dvd that was on eBay and was much cheaper than ordering the dvd from the US. The guy who was selling it stated it was a DVD-r in NTSC format but i'm assuming that it was region free. The hope was it would work as its region free even though it was not PAL but who knows ha. I wasnt that fussed anyway ha.

It should work.
Only problem is if you have a old phat TV that doesn't support NTSC signals, then you will get it played in black and white.

Brilliant thanks that's good news then :). I just figured the region free was the important bit as most DVD players and TVs seem to be fine with NTSC if its multiregion dvd. They were only cheap so I may well just take the plunge and give it a try even though they are only dvd-r. Thanks again everyone who posted.
