Does anyone know if the recent UK BBC releases like Robin Hood and Hotel Babylon will work on a USA PS3?

Anyone know if the Australian releases of The Exorcism Of Emily Rose and Gothika are region free? Emily Rose features the B symbol on the back cover but I'm curious since the UK one is confirmed as being ABC.

In the post concerning the UK release of The Fountain one poster claims the following:

"BDA requires that any title with a specific region code be stripped off that code 12 months after it is released. The old copies will still be on sale but the new region-free discs will have to be indicated as such. Basically watch the Region A, B or C logo at the back of the cover."

It would be very interesting to get confirmation of this. The next question would be, how the heck does one find out if an online retailer such as, say, Amazon, carries the "new", region free version?

I'm hoping the UK release of Death Sentence on Blu-ray is region free, but I doubt it. The publisher is EiV, and I think most of their titles are region locked. There is a German release of Death Sentence coming out a month after the UK one, and that one will probably be region free at least.

Hi everyone,

Just thought I'd mention that the New Zealand (region B) release of "Hairspray" is region B only - won't play in my US PS3.

I have EU PS3, region B, and ordered one copy of I am Legend from Amazon.com. It works fine. I always verify regions using http://bluray.liesinc.net site before ordering discs.

Amazon.com descriptions don't say anything about regions, its some automatic print out to say Region A. I did notice today, that No Country For Old Men movie had A region in a disc face and cover prints. Movie still play fine in EU playstation3 player, as indicated by mentioned website. So we cannot trust Amazon or disc printouts.

Can anyone confirm the ECHO BRIDGE budget titles being region free?

Also for those importing from Australia or with Region A players - are the UK listed region free titles assumed to be the supply for Oz as well - playable on Region A players?

Thanks

Hi there,
My name is Alex and I thought I would make life easier for everyone with a region free site that sends out an update every week on whats new etc.

This looks like an awesome forum by the way, and I hope this information is a worthwhile contribution.

The Aussie and NZ page is at:-

blu-raymoviescheap dot com

and the Euro relevant page with info on things like VAT etc. is at:-

blu-raymoviescheap dot co.uk

Once registered you get access to the full listing and weekly mailouts of new developments.

Cheers
Alex

Interesting. Warner never enforced Region Coding on Hollywood titles except Rambo in Germany. Is Blood Diamond released by Warner in your country ?

All "pure" Warner titles are region free. Rambo is only distibuted by Warner in Germany just like the New Line titles which are also region coded (AFAIK) even though the Warner logos are all over them.

Those lists aren't very complete. They don't list Oldboy or Welcome to Dongmakgol. It shows some that are not region free, but not all that are region locked. It looks like those are only lists of US discs, but not discs from other countries. A complete list would be more helpful. As it is, its somewhat useless to those of us who wish to import INTO the US *sigh*. More mail for my SPAM folder.

Just grabbed the cover and it looks like Warner Bros. are the distributor here in New Zealand/Australia.

However, I have to admit, I'm now a bit confused. I'm sure I saw some kind of logo that indicated Region A, B & C supported, however now I can't see it at all!?
