Is Region 2B Region Free?

Want to grab a 3D/BR combo set from Amazon UK and it is 2B, is that region free?

No, Region Free means it would play all regions (ABC for Blu-ray)
If it is listed as "B", then it is region B, and 2 meaning region 2.

But then again, Amazon is not the most exact with their region marking.

What title are you looking at?

Entertainment One releases are all region B, and this blu-ray.com listing shows it is not playable on A machines. (And the DVD is Region 2 PAL)

According to bluray.com, checked by people who have the discs, the Blu-ray will not play on a region A player.
