Sorry if this is a bad place for this post but I was unsure of where to post it

So my question is I want to buy this version of the Avengers from best buy.

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/avengers-infinity-war-incl...

It is a 4K UHD Blu ray. It comes with the disc and a digital copy. So my dilemma is playing it on my computer. Is there a program I can use to play 4k UHD? I imagine I wont necessarily need the disc, but if I do, is there a DVD drive that will play this?

MY specs are

32inch 1440p 144hz monitor

i7 7700k
gtx 1080
1.5 TB SSD
16 GB ram
win 10 64 bit

Link doesn't work. I'm assuming the digital copy is some site such as Vudu which allows you to stream whatever content you own.

As to local playback you'll need a blu ray compatible disk drive + blu ray compatible software. For software some people have had success with VLC media player. Personally it's never worked for me playing blu ray but it does for some people; maybe that will include you. A sure option that will work is PowerDvD. Used them in the past too and I can recommend them. But PowerDvD isn't free. VLC is.

Yeah so not Vudu but sounds like a similar streaming service. Point still stands about local playback.

Mm I was thinking of internal blu ray players. I believe external players usually have the necessary stuff built in so probably won't need any special software. Someone correct me there if I'm wrong.

The digital copy should just stream from the site it gives you a code to. 'Movies Anywhere' or whatever it's called.
