I live in Japan (NTSC, Blu-ray Region A) and want to buy Blu-ray discs from England (PAL, Blu-ray Region B). I know I wouldnt be able to play them in my standalone here, but can I buy a (any?) USB BR disc drive here, plug it into my Mac, and play those Blu-ray discs in the drive on my HDTV via AppleTV? Would the NTSC/PAL format mean anything? If I can, would there be any stutter with my 2012 Macbook Pro and AppleTV3? Thanks to anyone with experience who can advise.
