    Install Windows.

    There is no native Bluray software for OSX. Personally I format shift using MakeMKV and then use Plex.

    Macbooks do not ship with Bluray drives, so I assume you have an external USB one.

    You can't AFAIK legally do this in the UK. Or the USA.

    You can do it but you need the hardware to play the disc and software to watch it - MacWorld article here

    the MacBook doesn't have a blu-ray reader so you'll need an external device to read it

    The Mac system don't read blu-ray movies by default, If you stick to use your MacBook to watch it, you may get a blu-ray player or rip them to a Mac-readable format like mp4 or mov.

    I have used AppGeeker Blu-ray Ripper for a while now, It, supposedly, can rip DVDs/Blu-ray discs and convert to common formats.

    I have no idea whether this software will work for you, but worth giving it a try.
