    Blu-Ray region question 12th Oct 18 at 10:55 PM
    So I am looking at buying a blu-ray that only seems to be available in America. There's a couple of people selling it on ebay for 40 advertising it as region free, then there's others selling it for 15 region 1.

    Is it wishful thinking for me to think the one's being advertised as region 1 are actually region free as well and the sellers just haven't realised? It's not something that would have been released more than once so I would have thought if one was region free then they all would be.

    Indeed, if they say region 1 they have not realised it's not a dvd.


    Just check on amazon.com (not the auto blurb, the description, amazon often give conflicting info because of the default assumed region nonsence but I have never been wrong going off the description!)

    It can also be worth doing a search on www.bluray.com for the title as much of the time their information on a release will include what regions it's been set to.
    For example Deadpool 2 shows as region: A, B (locked) whilst Antman & the wasp shows region A (b, C untestest).
