Wi-Fi today have becomes such an integral part of our lives today that we expect to have it everywhere. Literally everywhere. Does that bar have wi-fi? Does that café have wi-fi? Does that stereo system come with Bluetooth and wi-fi? Does that TV comes with built-in wi-fi? Almost every tech gadget imaginable now comes with built-in internet connectivity and consumers are now expecting to have it on their Blu-Ray players too. Here is a list of highly rated Blu-ray players with built-in wi-fi capabilities.
Panasonic DMP-BDT500 Wi-Fi 3D Blu-ray Player
Currently, this is one of the highest rated Blu-ray players in the market. It is so feature rich that we feel that calling it just a ‘blu-ray player’ would be a gross understatement. Besides doing an excellent job playing blu-ray and 3D movies (with cool features such as the 2D to 3D conversion feature), this player is a hub for a variety of online media apps such as Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, Huluplus, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Pandora and many others. It is also a DLNA-enabled device where it can wireless connect to other devices through wi-fi. You can even use your smartphone as a remote control for the player. Another cool feature on this model is that the remote control that comes with this device has a built in trackpad on it!
Sony BDP-S5100 3D Blu-ray Disc Player
Since Sony was one of the pioneers in Blu-ray technology, it is safe to assume that they make some of the best blu-ray players in the market. The built-in wi-fi capabilities on the Sony BDP-S5100 allows you to use it to stream movies and videos over the internet through the use of more than 100+ media streaming apps that comes with the device. Some of its other notable features include I/P noise reduction and 2D to 3D video conversion. You can also use the player to connect the TV set to any mobile devices using the Sony TV Sideview app. You can get your hands on one of these for less than $90.
LG BP330 Blu-ray Disc Player
This wi-fi enabled model lets you stream online content from services such as YouTube, Netflix, Vudu and many more. While this may not be the most high tech of Blu-ray players, it does have one big selling point that would prove to be irresistible to many. At the time of writing, you can get one of these for less than $70 each. With such a modest price tag, it is hard to imagine why anyone would ever need to get a separate media-streaming box for the TV. Blu-ray players such as this one after all, do come with a wide array of media streaming services, wi-fi and a USB port.
Samsung BD-F5900 3D Blu-ray Disc Player
This is yet another 3D Blu-ray player with similar features as the two other models above. Some notable features on this Samsung device include a web browser, and the very user-friendly Smart Hub user interface. The user interface lets you have quick access to content such as apps, videos, images and the web browser with a click on the remote. It might also be worth mentioning that the remote control that comes with this player has glow in the dark buttons!
