Region-Free LG UP870 and UP970 Ultra-HD Blu-ray Players

lg up870 and up970 region free blu-ray playersLG is up against some fierce competition when it comes to Ultra-HD Blu-ray players, but there are two models that stand out for us - the UP870 and the UP970. These two models are somewhat basic, but in the world of 4k Blu-ray they're affordable, reliable, easy to use and they're less expensive than many of the competitor's models. With a simple but clean design, they fit in well with any home theater to power your 4K TV with Ultra-HD disc playback. Furthermore, the models we sell are region-free which gives them additional capability over the models sold by LG or in major department stores. They've been professionally modified for region free playback (plays blu-ray discs from all regions and DVDs from all regions), feature worldwide voltage (works with 110 - 240 volts without a voltage transformer), and are equipped with internal Pal/NTSC conversion (these players work with any TV from any country without expensive video converters). They're truly global players that can play any disc, on any TV, from anywhere in the world. This makes them an excellent choice for travelers or anyone who likes to purchase foreign film titles. Let's take a quick look at some of the features of these players.
 
4K and 3D Disc Playback
Enjoy your favorite movies and TV series on Ultra-HD in the finest resolution available. Rich colors, deep contrast and HDR support make for an amazingly realistic home theater experience. If you have a 3D TV, you'll be glad to know that the UP870 and UP970 both support 3D disc playback.
 
1080p and 4k Upscaling
If you have older DVDs that aren't Full HD, these players will upscale them to near HD quality. For non-4K Blu-ray discs, they will upscale to near 4K quality. This means that whatever you're playing will be shown in the highest resolution possible.
 
Audio Support
Both models support a wide range of audio formats for playback, as well as your home theater setup. This includes LPCM, Dolby True HD, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital, Dolby Atmos, DTS, DTS-HD Master Audio, FLAC, AAC, WMA, MPEG 1/2 L2, MP3, and more.
 
Video Support
The UP870 and UP970 play practically any video format you can imagine. Support for all major/popular formats includes MPEG-1, MPEG2 PS/TS, MPEG4 AVC (H.264), SMPTE VC1 (VC-9), H.265, MKV, Xvid, AVC Rec, AVCGD, M4V, WMV, 3GP, MP4, MOV, FLV, VOB, TS, DAT, and more.
 
Web and Streaming Content
You have 2 options here, depending on your needs. The UP870 doesn't feature Wi-Fi or streaming media. If you already have a Smart TV, then this really isn't an issue because you already have access to streaming content. The UP970 has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and streaming media access (including 4k streaming), but is limited to Netflix and Youtube. Both players do feature a rear Ethernet port for a more stable connection.
 
Inputs/Outputs
Both models are equipped with a frontal USB port that allows you to plug in a storage device or smartphone/tablet for playing media. The UP870 has a single HDMI output, while the UP970 has dual HDMI outputs. Both players also have an optical audio output.
 
If you're ready to get into 4K Blu-ray, both of these players are a fair choice. The Region-Free version of the UP870 and the Region-Free UP970 are not available in stores. If you're searching for global functionality and unlimited playback, plus the ability to use your player with any TV at any voltage, these LG machines will do it. Just don't forget to buy from a trusted retailer who specializes in Region-Free players.
