DVD player died

Do I now go for a Blu-Ray (whatever that is) player presuming it's better than my old DVD version.

It may be a dumb question but I was born before fire was invented.

We have skipped Blu-Ray and gone straight to internet downloads and Netflix. A Netflix account can be shared with several households - so your children for example. makes it cheap.

Internet service is crap and fibre not available so wouldn't go there. Not interested in Netflix anyway. No children thank God.

In my opinion, if you don't know what a Blu-Ray is, then you don't need a Blu-Ray player.

But Blu-ray prices are very cheap and play both DVD's. Save $20 and buy a DVD only player and then if you get a Blu-Ray disk, it won't play. Why take the risk over a pittance.

If you have an investment in a collection of DVD's and CD's then it seems reasonable to purchase a blu-ray player so that you can still enjoy them. The one I bought can also get Netflix via WiFi, together with a USB socket for watching content on memory sticks or charging your phone.

Thanks d.snell and gyrogearloose. Wasn't worried about cost just wondered if going in the right direction.

A Blu Ray player will play cd/dvd/blu ray.

Just get one.

When I bought my blu-ray player, I also got them to change the DVD for multizone playback.
I don't know if the blu-ray will do multi region though.
