Stream on

Media streaming is second nature. Once networked, the TV quickly discovered all my connected devices and I was soon enjoying sound and vision from my Nas devices. File support is excellent and includes AVCHD, AVIs and MKV wrapped content.

Network browsing

Among the audio file types accommodated are MP3, AAC and WMA. Onscreen presentation includes album art for music. This level of sophistication is in stark contrast with the brand’s 2011 Blu-ray players which offer nowhere near as much finesse or flexibility.

Music playback
