All Blu-ray players can play standard DVD movies as well as Blu-ray discs. Blu-ray players not only play standard DVDs, but they also upconvert the DVD to give it a look closer to true high definition.
A Blu-ray player is best paired with a television that has 1080p definition. The high definition television allows the Blu-ray player to display the images saved on the disc correctly. In addition to DVDs and Blu-ray discs, the Blu-ray player can also play compact discs. Many models of Blu-ray players also contain smart technology. This technology allows the Blu-ray player to connect to web-based services, such as Netflix or Amazon Prime.
