Not sure of this works on the very latest models but here it is :-
1) Press the POWER button on the remote to turn on the
machine (no disc in the tray).
2) Wait till the player has booted up and the Samsung logo
screen is displayed.
3) Press the OPEN/CLOSE button on the remote twice, to open
then close the disc tray.
4) As soon as you see "No-Disc" displayed in the top left
corner, press the REPEAT button followed by the 5 digit code
for your current region as listed below.
(Mine was 57538 for region 2)
Don't press the REPEAT button for too long, just smoothly
press REPEAT 5 7 5 3 8.
If it doesn't work straight away, keep trying, mine worked
on the first go.
5) If you're successful, your current region code will be
displayed in the top left corner of the screen.
6) Press '9' to make your player region free.
7) Turn the player off, then on again and test with a
different region disc, or if you don't have one to test
with, just repeat the hack and instead of your old region
code appearing in the top left corner of your screen, you
should see '9' if you've been successful.
The hack can be repeated to turn your machine back to it's
original settings or to a particular region if the disc is
sensative to region free machines.

At one time there were illegal services which would modify your gear, if you paid and mailed them the device. I don't think that is possible now; it was never advisable.
The DVD distributors have a large vested interested in controlling sales by region. For a premium price, you can buy a multi-region player.
There is really nothing you can do unless you want to play the risky game of downloading firmware modifications which could leave you with a "brick" that won't play anything.

You will need the following:
1) Internet connection
2) Wired router
3) long enough ethernet cable to reach from your blue ray player to the router.
Eject any disks and turn off the blu-ray player by unplugging it.
Attach the ethernet cable to the router and the other end to the ethernet port on the back of the blu-ray player.
Turn on the blu-ray player and wait for it to load all the way.
Using the remote, arrow over to the left to "Setup", the up to "Network Update".
After the unit updates and restarts, repeat until it tells you "Already Updated".
That should help you play the newer movies, and even some of the older ones.
