It IS Region-Free, but Jankey and is not great for Streaming
Reviewed in the United States on April 25, 2020
I bought this because it was most important to me to have a Region-Free Blu-ray player, and this aspect does work well. I own plenty of DVDs and Blu-Rays, and I own some outside regional DVDs, and I wanted to get more outside region DVDs and Blu-Rays, and every time all of these work perfectly and easily. Great picture quality, no toggling back and forth with settings, the remote works well. I am super happy with that.
In other respects, it is jankey or not as advertised. My player is directly connected to my internet with an ethernet cable, but I have to go to the settings and connect to the internet anytime I want to stream. The apps I use only include Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Youtube. There are tons of apps for far smaller streamers I personally do not use such as Vudu, Tubi, and other I have never heard of. Now the packaging, the actual box I received my player in advertises Hulu, but there is NO app for Hulu and no way to get it. I also have subscriptions to HBO Now and Disney+, and there are no apps for those either, and no way to get those. That is disappointing.
At the time I purchased this player, this Amazon page also said it was possible to stream Playstation games and that's part of why I bought this one specifically, but there is NO way to do this and no app for it. However, the packaging/instructions do not include this feature.
It's great as a media player, but NOT for streaming services. You are better off pairing it with another method for streaming, which is disappointing since it is rather expensive.
