I'll have to have a look tonight, but from recollection - stuff all. Youtube, Netflix... The Berlin Philharmonic channel... yeah not much.

 

EDIT: TBH I dont mind as have the apps I use on my Samsung, or on the cheap aliexpress android TV box that I already had. Spotify is built into my Onkyo amp. 

 

 

 

 

Thanks. I was thinking of swapping my Panasonic for the Sony. As the only app the Panasonic have is Netflix. While I have a 4K TV, my main viewing environment is a dedicated room with JVC projection, which of course lacks any apps, so I rely on my Intel NUC media PC (which can't do 4K 60P, unless get a new one with the Gen 7 Intel's). 

 

The problem with these cheap Android boxes is that they don't do 4K streaming from Netflix/Amazon, and it's an unknown quality regarding their upscaling quality.

 

 

 

 

 

Apps are Netflix, WWE Network, MUBI, Spotify, Berlin Philharmoniker, Youtube, Opera TV, and some Action Cam youtube channel

703: The Panasonic has a superior chroma upscaler. Neither the Sony or Oppo can match it. Also has a useful HDR slider as some don't like HDR to be too bright or dim depending on their TV set and time of day.

Sony is built more solid.

I'm fairly central in AK. PM me if you want the panny at a reasonable price. Or I might list it online.

Cheers

Thanks. Is the Netflix app HDR capable? And what about the YouTube App? HDR capable?

 

Cheers

I have read (not tested) that it does support Netflix HDR, unsure about Youtube. Other countries get apps like Amazon and BBC, so I am guessing that stuff is dependent on Sony  NZ.
