I live in Brazil/Soth America. My understanding is that tge region in blu ray are different from those in DVD and, regarding bluray, USA and Brazil are in the same region (1). Am I correct?

There are 3 regions in Blu-ray, though it is not necessary for a blu-ray disc to be region locked (many so far are region free).

Region A: Americas; East and Southeast Asia; U.S. territories; Bermuda.

Region B: Africa, Europe, Oceania; Middle East; Kingdom of the Netherlands; British overseas territories, French territories; Greenland.

Region C: Central and South Asia; Mongolia, Russia, and People's Republic of China.

So, you are correct in that the U.S. and Brazil share the same region.

Please, I have still the doubt why in many bluray disks that you sell is stated that they are specific for region 1 and it is written (US and Canada).
Thanks for your help, Sergio

Here's a rough breakout of the regions: Region 1 - US and Canada. Region 2 - Europe, Japan, Middle East. Region 3 - Far East (except China). Region 4 - Australia, New Zealand, Latin America. Region 5 - Former USSR, Indian subcontinent. Region 6 - China. (Note: These regions are for regular DVDs. Blu-ray has its own region codes, but the idea is similar. HD DVD does not use region codes.)
I hope this helps.

Still the same doubt. I think that many Blu Ray Disks advertised in your site are WRONG about the region code definition. Example:
The Ruins (Unrated Edition) [Blu-ray] (2008)
Product Details
Actors: Jonathan Tucker, Jena Malone, Laura Ramsey, Shawn Ashmore, Joe Anderson (VI)
Directors: Carter Smith (VII)
Format: AC-3, Color, Dolby, Dubbed, Subtitled, Widescreen
Language: English, Spanish
Subtitles: English, French, Portuguese, Spanish
Region: Region 1 (U.S. and Canada only. Read more about DVD formats.) If it is a Blu Ray why it is written US and Canada Only?
Many others Blu Ray disks in your site are described are Region 1 - US and Canada only.

"Region: Region 1 (U.S. and Canada only" Yeah amazon needs to fix that and start using A/B/C/Region Free for Blu-rays.

But if you click where it says "Read more about DVD formats" you see that for Blu-ray

* A/1: North America, Central America, South America, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Southeast Asia.
* B/2: Europe, Greenland, French territories, Middle East, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
* C/3: India, Nepal, Mainland China, Russia, Central and South Asia.

And wiki has a nice map if you want to check it out.

Hey guys your missing the real point here!!!!
Living in Australia I used to buy most of my Blueray here. Espescially as old movies, but new to blueray where not region coded.
But now HD is gone all new realease Bluerays here on AMazon US are shown as America etc. Even the old titles that even Sony agreed if over a year since it's release would not be region coded.
So I cant buy my bluerays' here anymore.
Either the movie houses are as usual making it hard for everyone,
Amazon, list them as region coded when they are not.

Whant to take a bet as which is correct!!!

I also live in Brazil now. I have an interesting dilema. I bought a copy of 2012 which according to the case was Region A,B and C. In other words it is supposedly region free. It worked on my UK Sony PS3, but not on my laptop which has a Region A BluRay drive. Last weekend I purchased a really old film, Beatles - A Hard Days Night. This also is supposed to be Region A, B and C. This time it plays on my laptop but not on the Sony PS3. I brought a large collection of Blu Ray disks from the UK with a mix of Region B, region B,C and region A,B,C and all work correctly on both the Laptop and the PS3. I am suspecting the region coding is not as well defined on Blu Ray as it is on DVD. Has anyone else had any experience of this type of problem.

Some of your Region free bluray stated format in PAL,does it means that Malaysia region free bluray player cant play this type of blurays?

Why will a B2 region blu-ray DVD will not play on a multi regional blue ray DVD player.?

If a B2 Blu Ray doesn't play on a MULTI-region player, either the player is not really a multi-region player, or more likely, the Blu Ray disc is defective. Good luck with your issue. :)

How do I find out what "Region 21090 encoding" means and in what regions a blu-ray disc with that coding will play. Specifically, I'm trying to find out if a blu-ray disc with Region 21090 coding will play on my Samsung BD-H6500 3D Smart Blu-ray Disc Player purchased from Amazon here in the USA.
