Default Region Free or Region A/1?

I'm looking to purchase the Bored to Death first series blu-ray and read here and on the blu ray region codes site that it is region free.

But on all the sites i go on to buy it (Play.com/Amazon) it says it's region A/1, are they all region free but because they are shipped from America the sellers are simply confused and are putting A/1?

I'm from the uk and play blu-rays on my PS3 so i'd love an answer to this before i waste my money, cheers

According to the region code list here, the first season has been confirmed as Region Free, so the second season could potentially be as well.

Most websites, like Play.com and Amazon, don't post accurate information about the region coding. They simply judge based on the country of release.

I'd recommend getting a region free player.

Thanks for the replies, and nah i ain't looking to purchase a new blu-ray player of any sorts, happy with the PS3.

Do you think it's safe to purchase the blu-ray if it says it's region free on that list? There's no way there can be a region free and a region 1/A disk is there?

Both HDD and our evil, competing review site report this as Region Free. Along with the Blu-ray Region Code site I'd say with 100% certainty it's region free. Pay no attention to retailers, they all consistently list incorrect information. The reviews are where it's at, for accuracy.
