Roman history comes alive in this magnificent 13-part series. I, Claudius ranks among the most acclaimed productions in television history. Tracing the lives of the last of the Roman emperors, it's an epic of ruthless ambition, shocking debauchery and murderous intrigue set in one of history's most fascinating eras. Bearing witness to the saga is Claudius, whose stutter and limp have marked him a fool--yet whom prophesies have foretold will one day rule Rome.
This collector's edition set includes a unique documentary feature, The Epic That Never Was (1965, 71 min.), a remarkable behind-the-scenes look at Alexander Korda's ill-fated 1937 screen adaptation of I, Claudius. Starring Merle Oberon and Charles Laughton, the chronicle of this uncompleted masterpieces is an unforgettable coda to one of the greatest stories ever told.

So, if you have a Sony or Panasonic BD player, purchase the DVD US region version otherwise you'll have to wait for a BD region A version.
Apparently the issue is the frame rate not the region lock. The North American frame rate (60 hz) for television is different than Europe (50hz). If your DVD player is not capable of displaying both frame rates you can't watch on a North American player. However, many players are built for both markets and inherently are capable of both 50 hz and 60 hz. When these DVD's are produced they are copied to the disc in their native frame rate.
Most TV's don't have an issue as they'll convert all to 60 hz or 120 hz for viewing.
On a side note this is the only film where I have ever seen Patrick Stewart with hair.
