Does Blu-ray Disc (BD) media have region codes?

Availability of region codes in Blu-ray Disc (BD) media.

    BD media does have region codes. But, unlike current DVD players, the region codes for BD media use letters instead of numbers to indicate a particular zone or region where the discs can be played.

    The BD region codes are as follows:

    Region A: North America, South America, U.S. Territories, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia
    Region B: Europe, Africa, Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand.
    Region C: Asia (except for Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia)
