    Blu-ray player buying guide

    Discover the top 5 things to look out for when on the hunt for the perfect Blu-ray Player.

    Why not up your viewing game with a brand new Blu-ray Player. As well as playing Blu-ray discs, they take your most-loved DVDs to a whole new level thanks to tech that gives incredible picture and sound quality. So your favourite films and TV shows are better than ever. And with handy Smart TV features, catching up on the programmes you’ve missed is easy.

    4K UHD

    4K UHD Blu-Ray Players feature cutting-edge 4K technology, which use 4 times as many pixels as Full HD. So every picture features crystal-clear quality, more vibrant colours and images are more lifelike. It’s worth pairing up your 4K UHD Blu-ray Player with a 4K TV set as they take pictures to the next level, giving you the most incredible viewing experience possible.

    Sound quality

    For truly great sound quality, you should opt for a Blu-ray Player with Dolby Digital Sound. Lucky for you, it’s featured on the majority of our models. And to indulge in the ultimate audio experience, it’s best to connect your Blu-ray Player up to a soundbar or surround sound system. So films, TV programmes and music sound even more impressive.

    Smart features

    Most Blu-ray Players can be hooked up to your home WiFi or broadband to give you access to Smart TV features. This means you can stream films, box sets and catch up on your favourite TV shows easily, so you don’t miss a thing. As they use an internet connection, some Blu-ray Players even let you download apps and surf the web via a browser. So, you can get stuck into YouTube videos and get the low-down on social media on your TV screen.

    Watch your favourites in even higher quality by upscaling with a Blu-ray Player. 1080p upscaling boosts the quality of regular DVDs to Full HD, meaning images are sharper and every picture features more detail. But if you want to go all out and watch TV better than ever before, a 4K UHD upscaling model will take Blu-ray discs from HD to 4K. So you can feast your eyes on the most amazing quality, straight from your sofa.

    A lot of our customers don’t realise that you need an HDMI cable to get your Blu-ray Player up and running. All you need to do is plug one side into your Blu-ray Player and the other into the TV and hey presto! You’re ready for a night in front of the TV.
