There's also a whole world of free, on-demand videos to explore from sharing websites such as YouTube(TM), Dailymotion(TM) and many more. There's no need to hook up your PC or watch on a cramped screen; you can quickly access new videos and services as they're added and stream full-screen content direct to your TV.
To ensure you can still enjoy lower resolution video on your large screen TV, a Blu-ray Disc Player like the BDP-S570 offers IP Content Noise Reduction to improve the picture quality by creating sharper image edges and more impactful colours.
An Entertainment Database Browser, using technology from Gracenote, also allows you to browse details like actor and production information from a Blu-ray Disc and access related content found on BRAVIA Internet Video.
