Is there a chance you were converting from Euros to Dollars?


Yes, Euros to Dollars. It came out to about $66. Unless I'm doing it wrong, somehow.

Regardless, the set is worth it.

Why do Americans seem so averse to owning a multi-region player? The rest of the planet has managed to deal with it to get the generally superior region 1/A releases that have come out over the last twenty-odd years, but a distributor outside the US puts together a decent edition and suddenly the Yanks are all "HELP HELP I'M BEING OPPRESSED."

It's the first thing I check when looking into new hardware, half of them are multi-region out of the box and the other half can usually be hacked just by typing a code into the remote. It's really not difficult.


Buy me a region-free Blu-ray player or your entire comment is hypocritical.

You can't spend less than $100 on one? That's less than three 2-disc soundtrack releases.

That explains it.
Base is in the UK, so that price is in pounds sterling, not euros.

Hopefully the exchange doesn't fluctuate too much by late October. I think the lowest rate I've gotten over the last few years has been $1.21 to £1. I think it was $1.23 when I checked earlier tonight.

You might not even need to buy one. Google your player model plus "multi-region hack" or something similar in Google and there's a good chance all you'll need to do is input a code on your remote.

Okay, so is the 4K set region-free or region blocked? I'm hearing it's both. Which is just lunacy.

That's all I need to know before deciding to purchase.


The 4K disc is region-free, but the extras are on region-locked Blu-rays.
