Just wondering... I notice there are now LOADS of suppliers who offer multi-region DVD players. This wasn't the case a few years ago when I bought my last player. I got really frustrated because I couldn't find anyone who offered it, so in the end I just got a region 0/regionless player. Just wondered what is different now - did the movie companies used to pay dealers not to do this too, or has it just become a lot easier for dealers to do now, with more websites about it etc? I was also wondering, are there any manufacturers who don't go along with the region coding scheme, and make actual proper multi region players? Or is the huge cash pay-off by movie companies too tempting? And how big is this huge wad of cash, anyway? I would imagine it started off really big, but now more people are offering multi-region modding, it's going down, because there wouldn't necessarily be a massive increase in sales for making a player truly multi-region. Is this thread too long and boring?
