Don't pay! You can watch DVDs for free on Windows 10

Microsoft charges $15 for a program to play DVD movies on Windows 10, but you can get free programs to do the same thing. Also, Facebook jumps on the Periscope trend with celebrity live streams, and businesses can chat with you on Facebook's Messenger.

Watching a movie on a DVD may seem archaic in this streaming age, but you shouldn't have to pay a fee to play a DVD on your computer.

For many people, the Windows 10 upgrade doesn't come with software to play a DVD movie. Microsoft is charging $15 for the program in its app store, but you don't have to pay. Watch CNET Update below to learn what you can do about it:
