Region B Indicator Titles

#1 Post by MichaelB » Thu Jun 07, 2018 6:20 am

Although the vast majority of Indicator releases are region-free (and with both feature and extras encoded specifically so that they'll play on any player worldwide), a small handful of titles has unfortunately been locked to Region B as a contractual requirement stipulated by the rightsholder.

This is the current list of Region B-locked titles:

Blue Collar
The Border
Charley Varrick
The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds
Little Murders
Ministry of Fear
Missing
The St. Valentine's Day Massacre

Can we assume that basically all Universal and Fox titles will be Region B locked ?

So far, every licensor that Powerhouse has dealt with who isn't Sony has required region-locking as a contractual condition.

Thanks Michael! For some reason I thought all Indicator titles were region free

They were up to January this year, but ever since they started licensing titles from rightsholders other than Sony region-locking has been compulsory for virtually all non-Sony acquisitions.

But Sony titles will remain region-free - and at present they still constitute a clear majority of upcoming titles over the next year or so.
