2.) Downton Abbey [Blu-ray]
3.) Downton Abbey Series 1 [Blu-ray] Region 2 (UK edition)

My research on Sherlock Blu-rays (region free blu rays) led me to find out that sometimes even region free blu-rays from Europe / U.K. won't play correctly on all U.S. blu-ray players. (There was a list somewhere of what blu ray players would work for this purpose and which ones wouldn't....).

Just a head's up.

I bought Masterpiece Classic: Downton Abbey Season 1 [Blu-ray], which plays on my Japanese Blu-ray player, which also plays US Blu-ray discs.

Can't help with season 2 because I am now deeply confused about the options and wondering how lucky did I get with the first season.


Here's the list of US blu-ray players that do and don't work with 50i blu-ray (i.e., UK "region-free" blu-ray discs):

If yours is on the "don't" list then you should definitely buy #2 and #4 respectively on your list.

I've wondered the same about the X-Files, as in what's the best way to buy the whole series? Too many choices. How do I satisfy this growing craving for Mulder and Scully? I miss them.

PBS cut nearly ten minutes from each episode. You still want the 'Masterpiece Classic' blu-rays, but make sure to get the ones that say "original UK edition" on the lower right corner of the cover. I noticed this one has the correct cover in the product image.

Can't help with Downton Abbey but Happy Birthday!! Or rawther, Many Happy Returns!

and if ye use VLC to play discs, it'll pretty much play any old thing I throw at it and doesn't seem to mind a bit!
