Yes off course. This player is only helpful if you have downloaded 4K movie from Sony Entertainment Network to play on 4K TV. [ Naveen  Dec 17, 2013 ]
No necessary, put pretty cool. You need this if you want to buy native 4K content from Sony and play it on a Sony 4K TV. At the present time content is limited, but expanding. You don't need the player for wifi. [ BRENT J  Dec 16, 2013 ]
