  • How and Where to Buy a Region Free Blu-ray Player

    how and where to purchase a region free blu-ray playerRecently, something came to our attention and we decided it was time to write a blog on the subject. The problem we're encountering is an increasing occurrence of frustrated consumers who contact us asking about their "Region-Free Blu-ray Player". They're usually confused and upset about their new player because it won't play discs from other regions, or because it's not region-free like they were led to believe. In this post, we'd like to clarify a few things about Region-Free Blu-ray Players. Hopefully this will reach some consumers before they make a purchase that leaves them feeling disappointed.
     

    What is a Region-Free Blu-ray Player?

    Region-Free Blu-ray Players are players that have been professionally modified for global flexibility and playback. This allows them to be used with any voltage (110 to 240 volts), with any TV (Pal/NTSC/Secam), and with Blu-ray discs or DVDs from any region in the world (Regions 0-8 and Regions A,B,C). They are very popular among travelers, people relocating overseas, or anyone who likes to purchase and play foreign discs in their home.
     
    If a unit is not capable of the above, it is NOT a region-free player. At minimum - even if it doesn't feature the global TV compatibility and worldwide voltage - a region-free player must be able to play discs from any region.
     

    How Do I Know if a Player is Region-Free?

    Here's where things get confusing. It's very important to know that region-free players are NOT available in department stores or major retailers. Wal-Mart, Best Buy, or any similar store does not stock or sell region-free players - they never have and never will. Why? Because region-free models must be professionally modified with special software and hardware. This work can only be performed AFTER a player has left the factory.
     
    Retailers of region-free players (such as ourselves) order the players in bulk from wholesalers or direct from the manufacturer. We order the same models that are stocked and sold by the department stores, with the only difference being that our units have been modified by our in-house electronics technicians. After the modifications are complete and the units are tested for functionality, they are ready to sell as a region-free unit.
     
    Again, if your player has not been removed from the box and modified by a professional technician, it is not a region-free player.
     

    Why the Confusion?

    The reason why there is so much confusion surrounding this issue is due to simple misunderstanding. People interested in buying region-free Blu-ray players usually go online to research. When they perform a web search for "region-free blu-ray player", their search yields results for region-free players. When the consumer sees a specific model they like, they usually research the model a bit deeper to compare prices or local availability. This is where he problems arise.
     
    When consumers discover that the same player (the same brand, same model number) is available at their local Best Buy or a similar store - and since they've already seen this model being sold as region-free by specialty retailers - they automatically assume that the player is region-free, which is false. The consumer will then purchase the model locally and discover that it's not region-free. This leaves many people confused, upset, irritated, and downright angry. Some even call the manufacturer directly to complain that the model is falsely advertised as region-free, which isn't true.
     
    These people are simply confused because region-free versions of the exact same player are sold by specialty retailers. What they don't realize is that 99% of the players for sale are normal, untouched, and have no region-free capability whatsoever. Honestly, it's an understandable mistake as this can be quite confusing. That's why we wrote this post!
     

    How and Where to Buy a Region-Free Blu-ray Player

    Now that you've read the section above, you know that these players can only be purchased from reputable retailers who specialize in selling the professionally modified region-free units. You also know that region-free players cannot be purchased in popular department stores because region-free players must be modified by a professional to achieve region-free functionality. So what can you do to ensure you're getting what you're looking for? It's easy - only buy your region-free unit from a retailer who specifically advertises their players as modified for global playback and functionality.
     
    We hate to toot our own horn, but with over 35 years in the business, we are one of those trusted retailers. At 220-Electronics, we sell the real deal.

  • How to Play DVDs and Blu-ray Discs from Other Countries

    how to play dvds and blu-ray discs from other countriesThere are plenty of reasons for purchasing movies on DVD or Blu-ray from overseas. A few examples are that some countries censor films and exclude critical parts of the story, some films may not be available in your country, and films from other countries are often cheaper to purchase. Certain genres such as Kung-Fu and Japanese Animation are available around the world, yet often the best titles are only sold in the countries of origin. Many independent films are also not for sale internationally and anyone interested must purchase them from the country where they were produced.
     
    The age of the internet has made it remarkably easy for cinema fans and movie collectors to acquire films from various countries, and you can even shop for movies by region from stores who specialize in selling foreign discs. However, there's a slight setback to owning foreign film titles on DVD or Blu-ray disc - they're usually not compatible with your player.
     
    With the basic intentions of maximizing profits and protecting copyright status, production companies and manufacturers work together to limit the playback capabilities of DVDs and Blu-ray discs purchased from other countries. Normally, a Blu-ray player purchased in North America will only play discs purchased in North America. Likewise, a European Blu-ray player will only play discs local to Europe. Attempting to use a European-bought disc in a North American player will result in an "error" where the player will tell you that the disc format is not supported. This is solely due to the encoding and decoding process. Each region uses it's own disc encoding, and the players from each region are set to only decode discs that originate from that home region.
     
    Of course there are ways around these regional limitations. Some people have found that they can hack their players, giving them the ability to play DVDs and Blu-ray discs from other countries regardless of the disc encoding. There are many ways that people go about hacking their players but the methods aren't always effective. Often times, the hacking results in a player that locks up or gets stuck on a different region, eliminating the possibility for playback of local discs. It's a risky decision to try and hack your player, and the benefits aren't always worth the cost of a broken unit. Also, there's a much better solution for playing movies from anywhere in the world; a Region-Free player.
     
    Region-Free players aren't sold by major retailers. You'll have to find a reputable retailer who specializes in region-free players and purchase directly from them. These players have been professionally modified and will easily play discs from any region, without any issues. Both the software and hardware of region-free players is altered to ensure proper and efficient playback of any disc you can imagine. In addition to playback, most region-free players feature worldwide voltage and internal Pal/NTSC conversion. Worldwide voltage gives you the ability to use your player in any country without a voltage converter - simply set the player to the proper voltage (110/120 or 220/240) - while the internal video conversion ensures the player will work with any TV without an external video converter. A Region-Free player is basically universal. You can take them anywhere, plug them in, use them with any TV, and play any disc. It's really rather simple and while they do cost a bit more, the price increase isn't absurd.
     
    Most retailers of region-free players sell the same models from the top brand names that you'll see in stores. Good retailers even sell high-end models that have been modified for universal region-free use. These players usually cost 20 - 40% more than the un-modified model, but the value is self-explanatory.
     
    Now that you know how to play DVDs and Blu-ray discs from other countries, you can get on with watching your foreign movie titles. In fact, you can even start shopping for foreign discs to expand your collection! Just be sure that the player you decide do buy is advertised as being region-free, and be sure you're purchasing from a reputable retailer.

  • Consolidate & Centralize Your Digital Media with a Smart Home Theater System

    centralize your media with a smart home theater systemWhen the term "home theater system" first originated, it was based on creating a theater-like experience with the use of a surround sound audio system. Over the years, the term Home Theater has taken on new meaning, encompassing all types of media - from music and movies to home video, photo albums and more. What was once the ability to enjoy great sound has transformed into endless entertainment possibilities. So what exactly does a Smart Home Theater System do? Practically everything!
     
    Thanks to the advances with television and Blu-ray technology in recent years, we're now able to consolidate and centralize media from multiple devices on our home network. Rather than acting only as a devices to watch Cable TV or movies, TVs and Blu-ray players have morphed into smart media hubs equipped with features like built-in Wi-Fi, voice and motion recognition, and the ability to make video calls with people halfway around the world. You can download and use apps that allow you to keep up with sports, surf social media, stream 4K Ultra-HD movies, listen to streaming music from thousands of channels, and even play video games. If your Blu-ray player or Smart TV are equipped with DLNA compatibility, you can watch movies or listen to your music playlist from a laptop in your bedroom, wirelessly, directly on your TV and surround sound system. The days of burning discs and messy cables are over - everything can be handled wirelessly through Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
     
    Screen mirroring is another great feature that allows you to share your smartphone or tablet's screen with your Smart TV. Let's say you want to watch a 45 minute documentary from the web on your big screen - just connect your phone with the TV, start playing the video on your phone and it will appear on your TV in full resolution with surround sound. This allows you to watch videos on a much larger scale, with improved audio and without the need to search for the video using the TV or Blu-ray Player's web browser (which can often be slow and fussy).
     
    Many Smart TVs and Blu-ray Players are now featuring dual-zone audio, which sometimes goes by different names. What this feature does is utilize a 7.1 channel audio system to set 2 channels to a different area. A great example of this would be to use two channels for the speakers for your outdoor patio, bar, or a basement. What's more is that while you can listen to your playlists from other devices, you can even use your smartphone as a remote control with many TVs and players. This means that when you're outside having a party (and listening to music that's both inside and outside your home thanks to dual-zone audio) you can use your phone's screen to access the user interface from the TV or Blu-ray player, select music, skip tracks, adjust the volume and more! If that's not impressive, we're not sure what is.
     
    Many people aren't aware of the true power of their Smart TVs or Smart Blu-ray Players. They can do a lot and they can do it all wirelessly. The technology is becoming more flexible, more capable, faster and more complete. When you're ready to consolidate your digital media for easy wireless access and playback on your TV and surround sound system, look into upgrading to a Smart Home Theater. For even more flexibility and universal use with any voltage, any TV and discs from anywhere in the world, look into purchasing a Region-Free Home Theater System - the ultimate in digital media flexibility.
     
    Don't take our word for it, start looking to create your own Smart Home Theater System today. You're going to be amazed by the features that come packaged with Smart TVs and Blu-ray players. It's easier than even to consolidate and centralize your music, movies, photos, and home videos with the smart interfaces they offer.

  • Region Free 4k Blu-ray Players for Global Use

    region free 4k blu-ray playersThe newest Blu-ray technology is here, and it's 4 times the resolution of 1080p HD. 4k resolution, also known as Ultra-HD (UHD), has been in the works for quite some time now. The technology has actually been readily available with TVs for a couple years now but the market for 4k Blu-ray Players and 4k discs was lagging far behind. While several manufacturers released players in the past with 4k upscaling, it wasn't true 4k resolution unless the disc and the Blu-ray player had the actual UHD format.
     
    In the last year, three of the top manufacturers have released true Ultra-HD Blu-ray Players that perform in all their glory to deliver an astounding - and very lifelike - picture of 3840 x 2160 pixels. In unison with your 4k TV, you can now play 4k discs on a 4k Blu-ray player and experience the true, intended quality of Ultra-HD.
     
    What's more than the ever increasing availability of 4k Blu-ray disc titles and 4k Blu-ray Players? Region Free 4k Blu-ray Players. If you're not familiar with the term, let me break it down for you as quickly as possible. All discs are coded to play only in players purchased from the same region where discs are sold. Chinese Blu-ray and DVDs are not compatible with North American or European players and vice-versa. If you want to watch discs from other countries, you'll need a Region Free player. Furthermore, Region Free 4k Blu-ray players are compatible with any electrical voltage, allowing you to use the player anywhere in the world without a voltage converter. They even feature internal Pal/NTSC conversion which eliminates the need to use an external video converter for foreign TVs. In all reality, the Region Free 4k Blu-ray Player is a truly global player. It works universally, with any TV, at any voltage, to play any disc from anywhere in the world.
     
    Although there's only a few true 4k Blu-ray players on the market, it's already possible to purchase the Region Free models from reputable retailers such as ourselves. Our Region-Free 4k Blu-ray Players are not available in stores. Each and every unit has been professionally modified for worldwide voltage and region-free playback. Essentially these are the same exact brands and models you'd buy in a department store, only ours have been tuned and modified for high-performance and global functionality.

  • Region Free Blu-ray Players: More Than Just Movies

    region free blu-ray playersWe've came a long way since the glory days of VHS tapes. Even DVD Players seem rather ancient right now with their capabilities limited only to disc playback. The invention and advancement of Blu-ray has brought with it much more than just improved resolution and sound clarity; it's opened up a whole new world of home media.
     
    Combined with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and other smartphone technology such as applications, the Blu-ray Player has transformed home theater into a vast world of endless media possibilities. We can share photos and video from our phones onto our TV screens without the need for cables. We can access and our favorite music playlists from our laptop in another room and play that music on our surround sound system without ever touching the laptop - and then we can adjust the volume using our smartphone while sitting on the back porch. We can check the weather, communicate with our friends and even surf the web directly from our Blu-ray players. We have access to thousands of hours of movies and TV shows that require nothing more than our internet connection and the use of our remote control. We can share our tablet or smartphone screen on our TV and vice versa. It's actually rather amazing if you think about it.
     
    A Region Free Blu-ray Player takes all these conveniences and pushes it a step further by allowing you to use it anywhere, to play any disc, on any TV. That's right. While it might not mean much to you at home, there are some serious benefits to this.
     
    When you purchase a Blu-ray Player from Wal-Mart or Best Buy, you're getting a player designed to work with the local voltage, capable of playing blu-ray discs that are sold only in your country. With a region-free player, you're getting a unit that works with any voltage (from 110 to 240 volts) and is capable of playing any disc, from anywhere in the world. Region-Free players also work with any TV, thanks to their internal video conversion. You can take the player to Canada, China, Russia, or Brazil or anywhere else - it will always work. No voltage converters needed and no worries about foreign disc playback. While this is perfect for the world traveler, it's also perfect for anyone who likes to purchase, collect and watch foreign film titles.
     
    It's important to note that Region Free Blu-ray Players are specially modified by professionals. The modified players are the same brands and models sold in big box stores, but the ones in those stores have not been modified. If you see a player that's region-free, don't expect to go purchase that player in your local electronics store.

  • Region Free Oppo Blu-ray Players

    region free oppo blu-ray playersIn the today's world of Blu-ray technology there is an endless choice of players to choose from. Almost all of the popular electronics manufacturers offer their own respective models, from economical to the higher-end players and everything in-between. It's true that you get what you pay for, but there's something to be said for the lack of quality with most models. Cheap plastics, miniature remote controls and players that have a generic look and feel to them are among the most common on the store shelves. It seems that the electronics of 20 years ago with solid build quality, high-end components and long lifespans are almost non-existent nowadays.
     
    There is one manufacturer, however, who manufactures Blu-ray players of excellent quality and performance; Oppo. Often considered "high end", Oppo's attention to detail and commitment to the highest quality audio & video performance cannot be denied. They consistently produce some of the very finest Blu-ray players available on the market today.
     

    Oppo Quality Construction

    If you're sick and tired of flimsy, lightweight players made from low-quality components, an Oppo Blu-ray player will bring a definitive sigh of relief. Built upon a steel chassis with an aluminum faceplate and a center mounted disc loader, Oppo's players are designed for durability and performance. Their smallest and most inexpensive model, the BDP-103 weighs in at a solid 11 pounds while their flagship model BDP-105 weighs in at a hefty 17.3 pounds. Their rigidity and weight allows them to remain planted in place while avoiding interference or vibration, even with hard-hitting bass from your home theater speakers.
     
    Did we mention Oppo's players are also quiet? Unique passive cooling technology allows for a fan less design that keeps the player running cool and quiet at all times.

  • Region-Free Blu-ray Players For Travelers and Expats

    region free blu-ray players for travelers and expatsOne of the biggest inconveniences from people who move, retire or live for extended periods overseas is that they can't watch their movies on a Blu-ray or DVD Player. The reason for this is simple - discs and disc players are designed, manufactured and sold to only play movies from their respective region.
     
    For example, a Blu-ray player from Europe will not play discs sold in australia, nor would it play discs from the USA. Likewise, a North American Blu-ray player won't play discs from Europe, Japan, or South America. The reasons for this are many, but the reasons aren't really important. What's important is to understand that a simple, effective, reliable and affordable alternative is right at your fingertips. The Region-Free Blu-ray Player.
     

    What is a Region-Free Blu-ray Player?

    Region-Free Players (both Blu-ray and DVD) are specially modified players that will play discs from any region in the world. Typically a 3rd party business will buy the most popular brands & models of which are available in stores and then modify the hardware professionally. Once the modifications are complete, the players are sold as region-free models. Consumers can purchase these models and play discs from any region without worry.
     
    Another great aspect of region-free players is their compatibility with the electrical voltage and color systems of foreign countries. Let's take a look below at this works.
     

    Voltage

    In North America, all players are designed for 120 volts use because that's the standard electrical voltage. In other regions of the world, it's usually 220 to 240 volts. To make things simple, region-free players feature worldwide voltage, allowing you to flip a switch on the back to choose your operating voltage depending on your location. This lets you use a region-free player anywhere in the world without the need for a bulky voltage transformer or converter.
     

    Color Systems

    As far as color systems are concerned, the resolution and color format varies from continent to continent. PAL, NTSC, and Secam are the 3 major color systems, and if you try to use a PAL Blu-ray player with a NTSC TV, they'll be incompatible. The hardware inside the TV won't be able to process the formatting of the disc, or, process the information the Blu-ray player sends the TV. To resolve this incompatibility issue, you'd normally have to purchase an audio/video converter. Luckily, 95% of region-free players have been modified with internal PAL/NTSC/Secam conversion. There's no need to buy converters and deal with messy wires and additional costs. It's plug and play!
     

    Region-Free Blu-ray Players Are A Perfect Solution

    As you can probably see now, the benefits of owning a region-free player are several. It can play discs from anywhere in the world and it will work at any voltage. It can also work with any TV, regardless of the color system. You can literally take these players anywhere in the world, play any disc, and use it with any TV. That's a flexibility that you can't afford to miss out on.
     
    Surely, the age of the internet gives us things like streaming media and Netflix for watching movies, but there's not always a solid internet connection available for these services. A lot of us prefer to own the actual discs, or, we may already have a large collection of discs that we'd like to be able to use - even if we relocate to a foreign country. A Region-Free Blu-ray Player is the ultimate, affordable, and highly reliable solution.
