Blu-ray/DVD disc Not Play on Xbox One due to Region Code issues

"I live in the UK and bought Xbox One from Amazon.co.uk so would presume it was region coded B for the UK market. All my region B blu rays and DVDs that I have tried get the same message "The disc will not play due to the region code settings of the player". I have a couple of Canadian blu rays and they work fine as do my games. Is there a way to fix the region code issues? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks."
