The United States is home to the world’s oldest film industry, Hollywood. If you were asked to name a movie off the top of your head, chances are, it was produced in this part of California.
That said, Hollywood is not the only film hub in the world. In fact, it’s not even the largest title that belongs to Bollywood in India. A few hours away from Mumbai, you’ll find another global leader in film production; The Qingdao Oriental Movie Metropolis.
What does all of this mean? Not all movies are produced in the US, and not all are written in the English language. For the casual moviegoer, this may not be a problem. But if you want to broaden your taste and explore the global film industry, there’s one thing you need – a region free player.
Three unique features of the region free player:
No need for software hacks
The largest barrier between local and international DVDs is region codes. These prevent you from watching movies from other regions, and the only way to access them is to perform software hacks.
However, these hacks are unreliable. They could only be used for a set number of times before they lock up or lose functionality after a software update. Region free players do not need software hacks, instead their hardware is modified to work with any region, any time.
You can’t fully enjoy a film if it’s blurry and pixelated. Luckily, most region free DVD players are compatible with HDMI cables and can upscale images up to 1080p. This gives you a more immersive experience regardless of the original video source.
There’s no better way to enjoy movies from around the world than watching them in their home country. Region free DVD players make this possible by having dual voltage compatibility, allowing you to plug them into 110-volt and 220-volt outlets.
