DVD Versions

The original Series 1 DVD releases in North America had a single Friends and Heroes Episode in the English language only, although they also had subtitles in Spanish. We call these English DVDs. Series 1, 2 and 3 have now been released as Multi-Language DVDs which contain at least two Friends and Heroes Episodes in ten languages (and the same ten languages as subtitles) on each DVD: Arabic; Chinese (Mandarin); English; French; German; Hindi/Urdu; Korean; Portuguese (Brazilian); Russian and Spanish (South American). All language subtitles can be displayed with any audio language you select. You select the language you wish to hear when you first insert the DVD into your player and can change languages at will by simply ejecting and re-inserting the DVD and selecting a different language. Once you have selected the language you wish to hear all the menus, extras and quizzes will be provided in that language. These true multi-language DVDs are available on this website - simply order the Multi-Language Versions.
