I bought a 2011 Sammy Smart TV back in ... 2011, now TVNZ doesn't work anymore for that year, what is the cheapest blue ray Samsung device I can buy that has smart built in to it so I can stream again on the home tv.
That would be the BD-J5500, currently selling from Harvey Norman for $148.
It does not have a wireless connection, cannot upscale to UHD (if you have or intend to get a 4K TV) and does not have a dual core processor.
The next step down is the BD-H4500, which is not smart. The next step up is the BD-H6500, which is smart, has built in wireless, can upscale to UHD, and has a dual core processor. It is a much more capable device than the BD-J5500.
The price on the BD-H6500 fluctuates a lot. I bought mine for $149 on a special from Harvey Norman about 2 years back. I have never seen them that cheap since. Boxing Day sales had them going from about $180. The cheapest current price seems to be JB Hi-Fi at $222.
The beauty of this device is that you can reconfigure them to have the UK Smart Hub, and with a geo-unblocker service like Unotelly, gain access to BBC, ITV and All4 etc. The UK content is significantly better than what we get here in NZ. You can even get live UK TV feeds (but you need fast internet for that to work well. I'm on 50 Mbps and that works most of the time).
Hope that helps,
I have seen the BD-H6500 for $168 at Harvey Norman's Tower Junction outlet store..
