Overseas UK Blu-Ray List / Australian Blu-ray List / USA Region B and Geolocked List

Hmm, I don't quite understand what you looking for tbh.

Do you want to have a multi region Blu-ray player (as one that can play any American release on it), then just focus on what HWR wrote. This is however distinct from geolock, as titles being geolocked allows you to watch them on some region B players.. Also, no, just importing a "normal" player from USA isn't the same as getting a multi region player (unless they're multi region, they're instead locked to region A ). It would allow you to watch geolocked titles, but you would just complicate matters as you could just buy a PS or Xbox console where you live instead (or a normal player set to USA, but that's a bit trickier).

To get further help here, what do you want: a multi region player or one that allows you to play geolocked titles?
buying a console is above my budget, also I play little so it would not be a wise purchase.
It would be perfect to buy a blu ray player in the usa that is multi region but I think that if I do that I would not be able to see geolocked blu rays (right?)
although thanks to you now I know that some geolocked titles work in b players, I think it would be more convenient for me to buy a player from the USA exclusively to play geolocked titles (even if it is not from region free)
I'm from South America so there would be no problems with it (or so I think).


answering your question I want a player that allows me to play geolocked titles (so I could buy sentai editions without any problem).

Realised after I posted that there probably was lingual problems complicating matters here. Will take that into considerations when wording sentences :)

Oh, I see, the thing is then that you're part of region A but want to watch geolocked titles? I must admit, I never realised that you over there might have a problem with geolocking. Since you're already part of region A (and I'd assume intend to only buy region A stuff) then importing an American produced player might work. Problem would be how to know in advance whether or not the player is set to USA. Can't help you there unfortunately as I'm watching through my PlayStation console and got no clue about various Blu-ray player manufacturers. Perhaps asking @Denny Fisher would be a good idea, as he is generally well informed about these things.
I am sorry for the problems due to the language barrier, but I really appreciate the help you have given me.
Exactly, I'm from region A but geolocked still affects me because I'm not from the USA.
I intend to buy titles from UK or some other region, but I could free up a player or get a free region (although that's not the point here). The main thing now is that I need a player that plays geolocked titles.
I was taking a look at This player on amazon but I don't know if it would do what I need.
Hope @Denny Fisher can help me a bit too.

If your from South America your region is the same as the USA and Canada.
So your player will play USA titles regardless.
The only restriction is if your player was manufactured in Japan, these players will prevent playing due to the Geo-locked method to stop reverse importing to Japan.
The only way to truly know if your player is Geo-locked already is to pick up a title that has already been confirmed and test it on your player.

Also if your USA player language settings are set to Japan this will also prevent you from watching titles, but changing them to USA will we fine.
Also getting a PS3 will be alot cheaper than getting a ps4.
If your thinking about importing outside the USA like the UK you will need a region free player as we are a completely different region.

Also if you're importing bluray players from US or UK, check your local power supply as South America seems to be one of those places that use 120, 220 and 240v 50~60hz depending on where you are

Best it would work just fine, worst it could explode lol

I have a confirmed sentai geolocked title, But I couldn't test it because my player is dead.
I'm planning to buy a player, and I took a look at this one on amazon.
Do you think that being sony will give me a problem? (I did not find information on where it was manufactured).
Or maybe it is advisable to buy one in my country? verifying that it is not made in Japan.
you know more about reproducers than me, could you advise me?
Your anime list helped me a lot and now I know titles from different regions, I really appreciate your help!

Panasonic and Toshiba Blu-ray players tend to be the ones to avoid.
Unfortunately you won't know until you get one.
If the last player you picked up was from your own country then you shouldn't have any issues.

After extensive searching locally, I only found the same Sony player from amazon in my country (which is apparently made in Malaysia).
And a LG Model bp -255 that does not have wifi, is cheaper and is made in Indonesia. Is region A (on blu ray) and 1 (on DVD).
I avoided the Panasonic brand (there were many models) and Samsung only had one with very bad reviews.
In your extensive knowledge, what do you think would be a successful purchase?
That is all I need to know. And once again, I really appreciate the time you have taken to help me!

You shouldn't have any issues with blu ray players from your own country.
Personally if your unsure buy from a store and keep a receipt. That way you should be able to return it and make the argument that the player doesn't read all region A releases and they should replace it or refund you.

the alternative is just to pick up a PS3 that you can grab cheap enough now

I'm not from the USA, but it's just a matter of testing.

Thanks bro, I'll keep waiting for your contributions regarding the titles of other regions and of sentai. 👍🏻
Let us know how it goes - If there are any titles you’re unsure about, feel free to ask!

I know, your from South America which is region A right?

Geo-locking should only be a concern if the blu ray player is manufactured in Japan or the language setting is set to Japanese. Otherwise you should be A-OK

  • Region A: North America, South America, U.S. Territories, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia
  • Region B: Europe, Africa, Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand.
  • Region C: Asia (except for Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia)

Hi, after buying a Blu-ray player (sony bdp-3500) locally, and waiting for my order to arrive from amazon.
I was finally able to test the limited edition School-Live (Sentai) anime on my player, and there was no problem.
DVDs don't play because they are region 1, but it's not really that big of a deal.
I thank all the people who took the time to help me by solving my doubts.
Now I can buy more versions of Sentai without worry. :D
I will be watching your list, thanks for everything @Denny Fisher .

Check your dvd player model online as most dvd players are region free and there are methods to reset them.
