Region codes are a total PETA, that inconvenience so many at the high altar of corporate idiocy.\n\nI like to play discs form the UK. I first used SlySoft but they got driven out of the Antigua and went to Belize and resurfaced as Red Fox. I had a lifetime subscription to SlySoft which eventually Red Fox failed to honor. So I decided to purchase this nice little small footprint and low profile region free BD player.\n\n \n\nIt installed with the Direct TV Genie in the old space left by the Direct TV HD 20.\n\n \n\nJust remember if you buy one of these units do NOT connect it to the Internet or use it for streaming. Otherwise it will get updated and become a North American disc player.\n\nThis unit works perfectly and has excellent picture quality.\n\nI had to put my Gefen HDMI switch back in service as my pre\/pro only has four HDMI ports. So I used the port my Marantz universal disc player connect to. Now the switcher has the Marantz disc player, the Sony region free player and a ChromeCast device. So that has given me 6 HDMI ports.\n\nSo now I can enjoy my favorite comedy series of all time: - Dad's Army.
