If you have a laptop they will play on that as a quick fix.

Believe it or not but there are region free DVD players in Walmart for between $40 and $60. I don't know the model names but they're there.

Go to Amazon.ca: Online shopping for Canadians - books, electronics, music, DVDs, software, video games & more, and search for 'region free dvd player' in Electronics. Plenty of choice! (and reviews)

It's a 3 step process:

1. Visit a few stores and Jot down some DVD make and model No's;

2. Check out this site for the crack codes.

3. Go back and buy the machine you want.

Wal-mart is selling a Seiki BD660 Blu-Ray player for $88 which can be hacked to play UK DVDs and Blu-Rays. I bought one (as with the exchange rate the prices on Amazon.co.uk are well cheap) and it works well.
