    Only if you can change the region to 4.
    They are PAL though, so no need for an NTSC enabled DVD player or TV.

    Some UK releases are both R2 & R4. Again, some Australian discs are both R2 & R4.

    If a disc is only R4, then it will not play, unless your machine is multi-region.

    One good point about R4 is that it is PAL, so there are no signal compatibility issues.
