Default Will "The Prisoner" series be region free?

I saw the listing for the series coming out May 18th:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Prisoner-Com...ecc_rvi_cart_2

Anyone know if it will be region free or not?

(P.S. -- Didn't see a thread for this, but if I did duplicate anybody else, my apologies.)

we probably won't know until it comes out.
I don't recognize the studio--"network"
considering how old it is, and the fact that this will most likely never be released in the US, hopefully it will be.

It's this lot: http://www.networkdvd.net/index.php

But I cannot find mention of the BluRay. Ordered anyway... just in case. Oddly was about to start watching the SD DVDs again.

it is locked.
here is the review from dvdbeaver

of course the US version will likely be the exact same transfer/encode so all should be ok.
I'd still prefer the massive UK version with the amazing book.
a real shame they didn't include lossless audio.
after such a an amazing restoration they should have gone the while nine yards.

Well, by God, at long last we know. Bummer, as the book and packaging were far nicer on the UK version, but getting the U.S. release for $50 and change is nothing to sneeze at.
