    Hi,
    I just got a new Mac Book Pro and would like to know if Region 8 means that the player would be region free. It says it is a special region for airplanes and cruise ships, but that didn't really help me!

    Thank you!

    How do you know that this MBP has a region 8 player?

    A subject search found "Region 8 is a special region intended for international usage. It is similar to region 0, but provides some protection against open distribution."

    Region 0 players can generally read all disks so you might (?) be OK if you're dealing with a region 8 player.

    It is in the choices of Regions in the drop down menu. So, does it mean Region 8 is region-free?
