    Blu-ray players with internet

    I'm looking for a new Blu-ray that I can also stream Amazon Instant Videos and Netflix videos. I'm thinking it should support 3D too but not sure about that. It doesn't have to have built-in WiFi since I have ethernet available where it will be installed. Any recommendations?

    Also, I already have a PS3 which is perfect for what I want but it is in the basement and this will go in our living room.

    My roommate just got one today. It has built in wifi though and does support 3d. It's a Sony BDP S590.

    I think we are going to get a MK808 instead of blue ray with internet. Way more flexibility.

    Pretty sure that's what I got. $99 or so. Works well and does everything you want it to.

    I don't think I can stream Amazon movies with that.

    Also picked one of these up the other day. Think it was right around the same price. Only thing I noticed is the initial setup was kind of annoying and I guess by today standards the 15 second load time would drive some people crazy. I think overall for the price it does what it is suppose to.... 1 and 1/2 thumbs up

    Panasonic DMP-BDT220

    $97.99 on Amazon. I have its predecessor the BDT210 and just bought the BDT220 today to go with my new TV. Great Blu-ray player with Amazon streaming access.

    It may take a little work since android and flash don't officially get along anymore but its possible.

    This is the first one that came up in my search. Probably go with this or the Sony. Thanks

    Re: Blu-ray players with internet

    We have a Samsung. It's a great Blu-Ray player, but the internet apps leave much to be desired. Netflix streaming always crashed and just wasn't worth it. Well, perhaps they're better now, because it's been about a year since we've tried streaming Netflix on it, but we've been using my XBOX 360 for Netflix. Runs so much smoother.

    I think that's what we also got recently at Best Buy - it was $10 off right around New Year's. I think it comes with 3 free months to Hulu Plus.

    I have this player from Costco for $79. It is a great little unit and gets good reviews. I can even run it using my smart phone in case I'm too lazy to get up and find the remote.

    Yep. I'm not sure if you have to register it for that? I haven't messed with that part yet.
