Hey guys

Does anybody know of any Blu-Ray players currently being sold in NZ that has a Netflix app? I have unblock-us and a Netflix account and have it happily running on a PS3 and Apple TV, but I have one room where we currently have a Blu-Ray player which can download apps but Netflix is not one of them, so I'd like to replace it with one that has it. DLNA is also a bit of a must-have. I saw a thread about the Sony BDPS390 but that seems to have gone end-of-life now. 

Cheers

Steve

I have BDS390 and it works very well. Not sure about the DLNA part but if it's in the spec, then it should work.

They maybe end of life but I did see them in the closeout section at JB HiFi in Wellington for $98.

Oh really? Damn, that's annoying. They're not on their website any more and I'm in Chch (no branches of JB HiFi here for some reason).

Anyone tried the Sony BDP-S1100? http://www.jbhifi.co.nz/tv-lcd-led-plasma/media-players/blu-ray-player/

The US Sony site lists this as having Netflix... wonder if its like the BDS390 and can be accessed via unblock-us or whether it has different firmware. Wish there was a way to tell without ordering it.

I was quite surprised when my BDP390 showed up Netflix when I powered it up. So it's possible the 1100 might also.

If you can find one powered up and connected to a TV in a JB store, there is a way to check without buying it.
