BDP-N460 adds Netflix, YouTube

Continuing its home theater launches for CEDIA, Sony tonight added its first truly network-aware Blu-ray player. Although earlier players have had BD-Live features, the BDP-N460 can stream videos from Netflix and YouTube as well as get music streams from Slacker, regardless of the attached TV. In a unique touch, the movie player is specifically optimized for Linksys' (Cisco's) WET610N Ethernet-to-Wi-Fi bridge and improves the stability of streaming over the wireless connection.

Like many newer Sony Blu-ray devices, the N460 will output HDMI Deep Color pictures to supporting TVs and puts out sound in 7.1-channel Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio and raw PCM. Local media recognition extends to upscaled DVDs as well as AVCHD (H.264) videos and photos stored either on disc or a USB drive.

The new reader ships in October, like the BRAVIA XBR10, and will be priced relatively inexpensively at $250.

    Awesome gadget!

    This Blu-ray player would've been real awesome save for the fact that it doesn't have built-in WiFi. But no need to worry though, you can still get it connected wirelessly through Netgear's Universal WiFi Internet Adapter. This WiFi adapter is compatible with most internet-ready devices such as TVs, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, and more. You can also use it to connect notebooks, wireless printers, and other networked home theater devices. For more information about the Netgear Universal WiFi Internet Adapter, visit http://bit.ly/bByST7 and discover this wonderful device from Netgear. Enjoy!
