Hello,
I'm interested in buying a couple of music concerts on Blu-ray, however, I have a problem regarding region codings.
One of them says in the title: "AC/DC live at River Plate [Blu-ray] [2011] [Region Free]" - it says "region free" yet when I scroll down it says "region 1 encoding" and in product details it says "all regions".

My Blu-ray is region 2 encoded so buying a Blu-ray with region 1 encoding would be foolish. Which is correct, "region free" or "region 1"?

Reply

Thank you.

To complicate it even more Blu-ray does not have region 1 etc the regions are:-

Region A: North America, Central America, South America, Japan, Taiwan, North Korea, South Korea, Hong Kong and Southeast Asia.
Region B: Europe, Greenland, French territories, Middle East, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
Region C: India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Mainland China, Pakistan, Russia, Central and South Asia.

So we are in region B.

Also if you look at the text you have found it is incorrect as it talks about DVDs which are different entirely.
