Sony have unleashed two brand new Blu-ray players, both of which will be fully 3D compatible. The Sony BDP-S570 model will be 3D ready straight out of the box, while those opting for the cheaper BDP-S470 player will get 3D visuals through a software update.

With a “Monolithic” design style, both players will send 1080p 3D images to your eyes, providing you have a compatible 3D TV and Active Shutter glasses set up.

Hooking up to the internet via either built-in Wi-Fi on the BDP-S570 model or over an Ethernet cable with the BDP-S470 unit (an additional Sony Wi-Fi dongle can be bought for the S470), owners will be able to access Sony’s new Bravia Internet Video Service. This new on demand platform will let you stream content from YouTube, LOVEFiLM and BBC’s iPlayer without the need for any additional media boxes.

DLNA networking is also available across both Blu-ray players, which have also the nifty feature of being able to be controlled by an iPod Touch or iPhone.

Though prices are still to be confirmed, you’ll be able to pick both 3D Blu-ray players up from shops by the end of the month.

  • Congratulations on your accomplishment. The sense of wanting to help, but not knowing how or where, is something a lot of us are going through.

  • I wonder when companies like Sony and Panasonic will finally realise there’s more formats out there for video streaming than divx. Once these boxes can do mkvs I can ditch my PS3 and WD TV Live!
