Playback prohibited by area limitations

I have just received the movie “Creep” that I bought from Amazon, it was shrink wrapped and everything. When I try to play it this shows up

“Playback prohibited by area limitations”

not sure if this topic has been discussed, I’m pissed that it’s not working for me, does anyone know why this is? and is there a way to get around it with my dvd player? :sad:

You’ve obviously got a DVD for a different region from the one you live in. Return it to Amazon, unless ofcourse you knew you were ordering from a different country, to ask for a refun or exchange for one for your area. Yu could also look for a region free hack for your DVD player for that you will need to use the web and have the make and model handy and search. Try www.videohelp.com
