Not Region Free,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Great Rift [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
This is not a review of "The Great Rift", it's just a heads-up that my copy of this "Region Free" Blu-ray isn't! My player indicates it "cannot play this format" when I insert the disc. Other similar items ("Yellowstone" and "Wild China") have played perfectly! There's nothing on the box cover to indicate whether it's region free or region specific.

Since you posted this 2 weeks ago, you may have solved the problem by now. Anyway, when I had this problem with a BD, I was advised to update the firmware on my BD player. I downloaded it (free) to a USB stick and plugged it into my player. I didn't even have to go into the player's menu; it recognized the update and the whole thing took just a few minutes. You can also burn the software to a blank DVD, and load that. Cheers, Tony (Melbourne, Victoria)

Thanks for the suggestion Tony, but it happens that I'd updated the firmware for my BD player just a month before my problems with this disc, so I suspect it was simply a mix-up at the Amazon warehouse.
Update June 1. Browsing my wish list today I've noticed that all the items on it that were previously listed as Blu-Ray Region Free (Ganges, History of India, South Pacific) no longer display "Region Free". This is even the case with Yellowstone and Wild China, even though they play perfectly well on my player! Perhaps this is a problem Amazon is encountering regularly!

Kenneth, the thing to look for on the box is 1080 50i-This is your incompatibility. Amazon mislead you, so should accept a return at their expense
Proper region free is some thing like 24 fps
If you can try a different TV
