Why we need a region free Blu-ray Player for Mac? If you are a Blu-ray DVD fans, you may have encountered the boring situation that caused by not being able to play Blu-ray movie disc due to the region code restrictions. As with the implementation of region codes for DVDs, Blu-ray Disc players sold in a specific geographical region. Although some current estimates suggest 70% of available Blu-ray Discs from the major studios are region-code-free, you may still have to bear the restrictions in some specific area.
In the era of standard definition, different discs were applied for NTSC and PAL region but this has nothing to do with high definition movies now. TV sets around the world do NOT differ intrinsically in their high definition capabilities (and BD playback in particular). This is intended to permit content providers (motion picture studios, etc.) to do effective price differentiation between regions.
While this may be good for the studios and their business, it is really a pain for the end-users on account of some reasons: Some high quality Blu-ray discs are only available in a single area. For example, if you are live in the North America (region A) and you received Blu-ray disc coded in region B (Europe) from your friends. you might not enjoy the Blu-ray very easily. Luckily some studios are good enough to release their discs as region-free, but most movie companies release region-locked discs only, or mixed ones.
This annoying situation for DVD movies was finally solved with multi-region players, which allows you to define your DVD drive region code by yourself(often up to 5 changes) like Apple DVD player, etc. So what can you do to deal with the case of BDs?
