Bluray Region B/2 question.

PostThu Apr 27, 2017 8:59 am

I'm interested in Charlie Chaplin blu-ray but these blu-ray are Region B/2, but supposedly they will not play on most Blu-ray players sold in USA and Canada, is it true?

It has been said before, but I will join the chorus of those recommending an all-region Blu-Ray/DVD player. They are relatively inexpensive and will forever remove the guesswork of whether a disc will play or not.

I fully agree. I don't understand why so many collectors seem hesitant to get an all-region player, given the riches of film releases (often in better prints) that await in Europe, Australia and Asia. The BFI and Eureka alone can empty your wallet :lol:

Me too, but in reverse. I've picked up some nice stuff from the US which has not been available over here in the UK.
