DVD disc combatibility

I have over 100 dvd's which were all purchased in the US which I am planning on bringing with us in the move. Will these play on TV's purchased in Switzerland?

Maybe, it is possible to buy DVD players without the locking mechanism.

Yes, just make sure you buy a "region free" DVD, and if the shop doesn't have one, they sell you one with a working hack. We've gone through 3 DVD players and all play our region 1 DVDs.

The best and easiest DVD players to remove the region code are philips players... you can usually check the model on the Internet with the remote control code to unlock. Good luck
