Play Blu-ray Movies on iMac/Macbook Pro/Air with Blu-ray drive

As Mac users well known, OS X doesn't support Blu-ray playback, nor has any Mac computer including iMac, Macbook Pro, Macbook Air or Macbook shipped with a drive capable of reading data on a Blu-ray disc. Therefore, the first step to play Blu-ray movies on iMac/MacBook Pro/Air is to purchase an external Blu-ray drive which will cost you less than $50 or some good drive that will range from 80$ to $100. Some Blu-ray drive such as the USB Super-BluDrive offered by MCE Technologies includes software that can play Blu-ray movies, another Blu-ray drive offered by OWC will require you to bring your own Blu-ray player software. As for the Blu-ray player software for Mac, there are many different options, two of the popular are Aurora Software's Blu-ray Player ($30 for a one-year license or $40 for lifetime usage) and Macgo's Mac Blu-ray Player( ($60 for a lifetime license).
