Dramatically enhance your movie-viewing experience with a
Blu-ray player that plays high-definition movies and supports more advanced audio. Use these tips to help you figure out the ins and outs of selecting a Blu-ray player for your home.
The action isn’t just on the disc now; it’s also on the Web. Some Blu-ray players can access the Internet directly, letting you download software updates and watch video online. You can even access Internet-specific features during movie playback, such as the ability to participate in live commentary track sessions during the film.
Most players have an Ethernet port, but some players can connect wirelessly to the Internet via Wi-Fi®.
Now you can surround yourself with as many as eight speakers pumping out audio tracks in a variety of formats, including Dolby True HD and DTS HD. Some Blu-ray players can decode these tracks and output them to your A/V receiver or TV.
The glasses have moved from the cinema to the living room. The latest feature to come to Blu-ray is the ability to watch movies in 3D, such as with the Samsung BD-E6500. (Note that the movie must be stored on the disc in a 3D format and the Blu-ray player must be connected to a 3D TV.)
