DVD & Blu-ray Zones


Our discs will play in New Zealand

At The Nile, we only have NZ zoned DVD's and Blu-rays!

It's simple, if you're in New Zealand and you bought your media player in Australia or New Zealand, the disc will work.

But just in case...

What are "regions" for DVDs and Blu-ray discs?

If you need to check whether your media player has any region or zone restrictions, look for the region codes supported. The following codes identify discs that are compatible with the players typically sold in that region.

DVD Region Countries
Region 1 U.S., U.S. Territories, Canada, and Bermuda
Region 2 Japan, Europe, South Africa, and the Middle East, including Egypt
Region 3 Southeast Asia, East Asia, including Hong Kong
Region 4 Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Central America...
Region 5 Eastern Europe, Central and South Asia, Indian subcontinent, Africa...
Region 6 China
Blu-ray Region Countries
Region A North & Central America, South America, Japan, Southeast Asia...
Region B Europe, Middle East, Africa, Australia and New Zealand
Region C India, Nepal, Mainland China, Russia, Central and South Asia

Not all Region 1 players are restricted to Region 1 DVDs. It's just a guide!
