Comparing Blu-ray Player Online Streaming Media Services

Veira-Cast

In 2011 we are seeing a trend that started to emerge a couple of years ago. And that is consumers moving away from traditional physical media to online streaming digital content. This may signal bad news for the blu-ray format. But instead of fighting the trend, most Blu-ray Players have embraced it. Making the Blu-ray Player as much about online streaming media services as it is about playing high-definition discs.

Every manufacturer has their own set of online services and their own user interface to access them. The four major ones are from Samsung Smart Hub, LG Smart TV, Panasonic Viera Cast and Sony Bravia Internet Video. It can get a little confusing to know what streaming services are offered from each manufacturer. The chart below is a guide to help you distinguish between easy blu-ray content portal. These are by no means the only services offered, but they are the main or the most important ones consumers use the most.

Beside content, the other key factor when it comes to online services is how easy the user interface is to use. While most players will offer similar services, you will want to look at how easy it is to use samsung smart hubeach interface. Right now, most experts agree that Panasonic’s Viera Cast and LG’s Smart TV are the two clear favorites for their simple interface which is easy and quick to use.

If you are looking for as much online content as possible, the Sony’s Bravia Internet Video would be the choose for you. It has a wider array of services than any of its competitors such as Hulu Plus and Amazon Instant. The downside to this, is that Sony’s interface is the hardest to use of all the players. Samsung also, has quite a few streaming services and a better user interface. But it is no where near as easy to use as Panasonic’s Viera Cast and LG Smart TV.
