All of the players we have offered, from our very first DVD players to our current Blu-ray players, have been capable of playing back both NTSC and PAL encoded discs. But even though the players are capable of handling PAL encoded content, they are still subject to region restrictions and are locked to Region 4 for DVD playback.
This means that a PAL encoded disc from Europe will not play in a Region 4 locked player if the disc is locked to Region 2. Though the player is technically capable of playing back the disc, playback is prevented by the region restriction. Region 0 or "all region" discs, regardless of whether they are PAL or NTSC encoded, can be played without issue.
