Although there are streaming sites, nothing compares to having authentic physical copies of your favorite movies and TV shows. You might even find yourself buying them during your trips abroad. The problem is their format, which can be different from the format used in your home country. So, you end up being unable to watch them at all. You don’t have to worry about that when you have a region free player. It’s like your typical DVD or Blu-Ray disc player, but better.
Why go region-free?
Region encoding prevents discs from being played on certain players. It can be frustrating to discover that you purchased a PAL disc, which cannot be played on an NTSC player. Region-free players can play any disc no matter how it’s coded (e.g., SECAM, PAL, or NTSC). So, you can still enjoy the shows and movies you like no matter how their discs are encoded and where they’re from.
Avoid the hassle
With a region free player, the discs you bought from overseas can be played directly on the device without any problems. You won’t have to study and download region code software hacks to jailbreak a standard player just to make it capable of playing foreign-coded discs. Moreover, you can bring the player with you anywhere, particularly when you like to travel a lot or you’re migrating or moving to another country and you want to bring your collection of Blu-Ray and DVD movies and TV shows with you. Some region-free players are portable and can easily be set up and brought anywhere.
Watch without restrictions
A region free player can serve a wide range of individuals, such as movie buffs, critics, and those who watch a lot of content for a living. It allows you to watch more content, which may have been censored or banned in your country. You can simply buy or order the disc overseas and play it with ease at home.
