This Blu ray disc is region coded A (Blu-ray) 1 (DVD) for America, Asia regions so will not play on UK region B/2 players. MGM are one of the few studios region coding Blu ray discs, most are not (or code 0). This disc will only play on region A/1 or universal / Multi-Region players with the necessary HDCP decoding software/hardware. I would like a Region B or "0" copy myself. Will not play on a UK PS3 for sure.
No progress by late Feb 2013 - I'm in Australia, same region as you guys for Bluray. Also noticed the US Bluray offers only 5.1 audio (no 2.0) - so do I need the full set of six speakers to hear it all..?
I have this last waltz Blu ray USA version, barcode 027616150240. In the back cover it has written zone A, but I live in europe with an european bluray player and it works without any problem even we are not in that zone, so it seems it is a mistake.My bluray player is zone B locked, it is not hacked or similar to be multizone. It works perfectly fine without the 5.1 speakers. the bluray player mixs it for 2.0 or a normal tv without external speakers, the same as for standard movies. Both image and sound are much better - really worth it- than the dvd , that I also have. The dvd has a few extras that the bluray does not have though.
