Friend of mine made me aware that the subtitled version of Yu-Gi-Oh! has been region locked from people in the UK. Apparently other places in Europe are able to see it, based off what my friends have said, but it's oddly locked in the UK, which I don't believe 5D's subs were.

Can anyone look into this?

When you go to the show page do you literally not see the thumbnails for the current 5 subtitled episodes?

Seeing the "Sorry, due to licensing limitations, videos are unavailable in your region" alone isn't enough to deny you permission to view the videos. That message would be normal in this circumstance, since the dubbed videos are not available in English-speaking countries.


A simpler question: What response do you get if you click on this link?:

This was actually not on my end, rather this was my friend, who is in the UK (I'm actually in the US). I opted to report the issue on his behalf. He reported to me that the subtitled videos are not appearing for him at all, and trying to view the video (which I did link the above prior to this post), reported saying the video is unavailable in his region.

Is there a reason your friend can't post on his own behalf? It would probably be a lot more helpful if he could relate information directly.

I can probably ask him to post here if need be.

Hey, I was the friend in question, so let me swoop in to try and clear things up a bit.

Just checked the link, and they seem to be working now. Oddly, the show page does have the thumbnails yet still gives the restriction warning;

@Mahzes That might be because you're only seeing the thumbs for the subtitled episodes. Here in Finland that same page shows thumbs both for the 5 subtitled episodes as in the screenshot, as well as the dubbed episodes (seasons 1-5).

That was explained in my message above.

To recap, you'll get that message if even a single video on the page isn't available to your region. Videos that aren't available to you don't show thumbnails, so they are essentially invisible.

We get the same message here in the US, as the dubbed videos (also on that page) aren't available to us, while the subtitled episodes are.

Ahhh, that makes sense.

Just seemed weird since the other day the episodes weren't showing at all either.

My understanding is that the subtitled version only went up very, very recently. Perhaps "the other day" was before the subtitles episodes started going up.

No, Chibigoku linked me to the episodes initially, hence him posting when they were working for him but weren't even appearing for me.

Oh well, all sorted now!
