DVD has revolutionized the field of home video, bringing widescreen films and special features to the mass market in a way that laserdisc never did, and using low prices to encourage purchase instead of rental.

This category is for sites related to DVD in general: the format, the technology, and other subjects not covered by any subcategories.

Sites that provide news, reviews, articles, and release schedules belong in the subcategory for the DVD region they cover. Specifically:

  • Region 1 - United States, U.S. territories, and Canada
  • Region 2 - Europe, Japan, the Middle East, Egypt, South Africa, and Greenland
  • Region 3 - Taiwan, Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Hong Kong
  • Region 4 - Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Mexico, South America, Central America, and the Caribbean
  • Region 5 - Russia, Eastern Europe, India, most of Africa, North Korea, and Mongolia
  • Region 6 - China

Sites that cover two or more regions belong in the Multi-Region subcategory. Currently, not all regions have subcategories, but they will be created when there are sites to populate them.

Shopping sites will NEVER be listed in this category. Please read below.
