Playing DVD outside of North America?
DVD movies are coded by region so that movie studios can control where in the world their
movies can be viewed. Hardware manufacturers encode DVD players for the regions where they
are sold. We have attempted to include the "Region" on as many programs as possible. If you
are placing an order from a country outside of the United States and its territories or
Canada, and the region is not listed, please click
here to e-mail us.
Can I show the DVD in a church or school setting?
Many customers ask us about showing video programs to church and school groups.
Motion Picture Licensing Corporation (MPLC), the group who has offered umbrella licenses to
show Hollywood productions in public groups, has now teamed up with Christian Copyright
Licensing International (CCLI) to create
Christian Video Licensing International (CVLI). For one small annual licensing fee,
you can obtain a license to show all Gateway Films/Vision Video releases plus most other
Christian and Hollywood titles. The CVLI provides legal coverage for churches to show home
videocassettes and videodiscs of motion pictures for a variety of church activities, whether
the videocassette or videodisc was purchased, rented or borrowed. These may include church
services and programs, education sessions and youth activities. For a complete listing of
Vision Video/Gateway Films titles covered by CVLI, click here.
This license does NOT cover materials that have been copied from another source or recorded
from television. It also does NOT cover charging an admission fee for video showings.
For more information on obtaining a church video license, you can contact CVLI directly at
1-888-771-2854 or visit their website.
