Like DVD, Blu-rays are region locked so that they will only play in a given area. Essentially, if the Blu-ray doesn't have a Zone B or Zone 3 emblem on it, it won't play in NZ Blu-ray players.
However, you can unlock your Blu-ray player to accept Blu-ray discs from any region - without complicated processes, changing the hardware or voiding your warranty. Plus, you can disable the software at anytime!
Introducing BlurayUnlock.com - helping you to get the most out of your Oppo. Play from ANY region, allowing you access to movies from around the globe.
Installation is as simple as downloading the unlock key, transferring it to USB storage device and plugging it into your Blu-ray.
We recommend a miniature USB drive that can be permanently plugged in the rear USB port of the player (without causing a fuss or taking up too much room).
Here is a link to our recommended mini USB stick from Global PC.
Alternatively, there are extensive mini USB options from Kingston or Silicon Power.
