Hi all,


Is it possible to make my Xbox S a multi zone DVD and/or BR player?


If so, how? (I have looked 'around' but have not found anything that looked promising)


I think that NZ is open to use of multi zone players and this should not conflict to any laws...




Thank you!

I buy BR from Amazon all the time and I gave my nephew one of my disc to try and see if it plays on hi og xboxone and he said it works. I don't think he did anything or changed any settings.

That'll be because a lot of Blu-rays are region free. The Xbox won't play region-locked ones though (and I don't know a way around this).

If you have a 4K TV, the UHD discs are all region free.

Do whatever you want to do man.

Well, it seems that there is no easy way to get this sorted. Thanks to all!
