With the advance of technology movie players have become much better and with more capabilities than they were a few years ago. I remember when I had at home a Beta player, VHS player and now a DVD player, however a new technology a taking place called blu ray.
Blu ray players have much better image resolution and are more flexible because they have more features, for example you can store images and video on your blu ray disc, you can connect to the internet with wifi and many other things.
But one of the great advantages of this new technology is that you can connect to the internet to rent movies at Netflix and watch them at home on demand. All you have to do is connect your blu ray player and if it has wifi technology you dont need any cables to connect to the internet.
There is a wide catalog of movies on Netflix that you can choose from for different categories such as drama, action, comedy, terror, suspense, romance, etc.
In fact one of the great advantages of using online sites such as Netflix to rent your movies is that for a small monthly fee, you can watch all the movies you want including TV series and with high definition.
My recommendation is that you compare the different disc players that are available in the market and get the one that best fit your needs. I believe that is better to have a player that has Wi-fi technology because that way you dont need any cables to connect to the internet.
