Default Looking to buy a cross format player in the UK

But I've found very little info, is it better to import a cross format player (that will play HD and Blu Ray), or are they likely to release one in the UK anytime soon?


Thank you for reading.

You know, I think at this point your best bet would be to find a seller on ebay that ships internationally and have at it. If there aren't cross-format players in the UK by now, I doubt there ever will be.

Thankfully there are two good options out there at the moment. Get 'em while they're hot!

If I were you Id go for the LG BH200 simply because us are in Region 2 and the LG has a region hack for it(BD and SD)....The Samsung while a capable player, as of yet has not Region hack for SD DVDs or Blu-ray.....

Besides possible computer drive releases,I dont think the rest of the world will see dual format players at this point..

Thank you both for your time, I will get this looked into some point over the weekend.


As you can imagine, it's a bother having to keep moving the television out, and getting behind to swap cables all the time

I thought the UK was Region 1 just like the US? Or is that just with BR disks? (Hey! Why not make it more confusing! )

BD discs for the UK are Region B, US is Region A.

More info can be found at www.releaselists.com and click on the Region Code Info Link on the left side.
