These discs are for the UK ONLY!,
This review is from: Sherlock - Series 1 [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
These Blu-ray discs of Sherlock were listed here on Amazon.co.uk as Region Free, so I happily shipped them to America.
They are not! They wouldn't play. So, it's a great show. I've seen it, don't get me wrong.
Just don't buy these if you don't live in the UK. They are not going to work, despite what the listing says

From what I can gather the Blu-Ray Disks are Region free BUT are encoded using the 1080p/50i protocol. This is the standard protocol in Europe but not in the USA (1080p/60i is the normal). However you can get Blu-Ray players that will do both 50i and 60i and they are available in the USA. Sorry don't know which models they are but perhaps you could "Google-it".
