PAL/NTSC Conversion – The BDP-83 supports NTSC and PAL systems for both disc playback and video output. It can also convert content of one system for output in another. (Subject to DVD and BD region restrictions)

Although it does support PAL, as has been mentioned earlier in this thread, it will not be region-free. Nor will there be any easy way to make it region-free, at least not intentionally. We will have to wait to see if any hacks can be found to circumvent this.
