Note that as the prizes are exclusive imports only on release in North America the DVD prizes are NTSC Region 1 DVDs which can only be played on a Region 1 player. Most recent UK TVs and all PCs with DVD players will play NTSC signals, but if you are outside North America you will need to have a multi-region player to watch them. Frankly, you can buy one of them for a song, so it's well worth it.
