Blu-ray player with Wi-Fi®
Our take on the Sony BDP-S3700 by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
The smart way to make your TV "smart"
Pop in a Blu-ray or DVD disc, enjoy streaming video and music services, or play PS3 games — all with the Sony BDP-S3700.
For my money, a new Blu-ray player is one of the best values in home entertainment, and the Sony BDP-S3700 proves why. This player offers many of the same video services that make similar-priced streaming sticks and set-top boxes all the rage — including Netflix®, Amazon Instant Video, and MLB.TV. Mulitiple built-in Wi-Fi antennas help ensure smooth streaming for your movies, shows, and live sports. Plus, the 'S3700 can also play Blu-ray and DVD discs from Redbox or your own library, delivering clear, detailed picture quality.

HDMI 1.4: The BDP-S3700's HDMI 1.4 output simplifies A/V connections by carrying video and digital audio in one cable. The HDMI resolution can be fixed at 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p, or set to Auto, which selects the highest resolution accepted by your television.
- Precision Cinema HD Upscaling: Through the HDMI output, the BDP-S3700 is capable of upscaling the resolution of your standard DVDs. Output options include Auto (highest resolution accepted by the TV), 1080p (60 Hz video or 24 Hz), 1080i, or 720p. If necessary the output resolution can also be set to 480p or 480i. You can also choose to bypass the Blu-ray player's scaler, so the source material's original resolution is passed to your connected TV.
- 24p Output: Movies are typically recorded on film with a frame rate of 24 frames per second. When a movie is transferred to Blu-ray Disc at 24 frames per second the BDP-S3700 will output that signal to the TV (if the TV will accept the 1080p/24 format) with no need for conversion.

Replacement for a Sony Blu-Ray player. [ ROBERT S Dec 26, 2016 ]
Good product specifications, good value for price. [ Carmen Dec 26, 2016 ]
I have no 3-D or UHD movies and this player was the best rated and selling without those features. The fact that it came free with the Sony soundbar convinced to go ahead and get the bar. [ Jake Dec 24, 2016 ]

My other blu-ray player is out of date. [ Annabelle Dec 12, 2016 ]
I did not need the 4K uplift feature for ultra high definition tv, therefore, I went with a unit that did not include this feature. The Sony was highly recommended on the Crutchfield website with 5 stars, with a discounted price, so I chose it. [ Horace J. Dec 09, 2016 ]

I was looking for a combination Blu-Ray player that also had streaming wi-fi services, and specifically something that would let me use my Amazon prime video without adding another device (because I'm out of ports!) This seems to fit all those requirements. [ Karen Oct 09, 2016 ]

Good customer ratings and simple instructions in downloaded user manual. [ Michael Sep 15, 2016 ]
Wanted to try BluRay movies and also wanted to watch Netflix on the bigger screen. Hope is a good choice, since was recommended on the website. Also, my older dvd player has been acting up for some time. Have to keep it, because it also plays vcr tapes, which I still have a few after purging most last year. [ Sandra D. Sep 02, 2016 ]

5 questions already asked
All the Blu-ray models we currently carry are compatible with Region A Blu-ray discs and Region 1 DVDs. I'm afraid we don't have any multi-region players available at this time. For more details or to discuss further, please contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Thanks! [ Larry Jul 31, 2018 ] Staff
I think so [ JOYCE Jul 23, 2017 ]
It does play the DVD - discs but I don't have any DVD + discs, so I'm not sure if it plays them. [ JOHN J Jul 07, 2017 ]
Easy hookup and operation, works well.I would give it 5 stars. [ Cornelius Jan 04, 2017 ]
I love this player. It's simple to operate and yes there is an indicator light letting u knowvits on or off. Talks well to the TV. An uncomplicated delight!!! [ JOYCE Jan 04, 2017 ]
If u have a smart TV u can access YouTube. I watched YouTube music videos and it was easy to use. [ JOYCE Jan 04, 2017 ]
Hi Michael, You can access YouTube on the Sony BDP-S3700 with no subscription if you have Internet. The device works well 95% of the time. The other 5% of the time, the device freezes-up (buffering) during viewing youtube. I went from wireless to wired with an expensive cable with no improvement. Its kind of a trade-off, you get to watch youtube on your TV except you must accept buffering. And i have Comcast high speed internet.Maybe think about buying a different brand of Blu-ray player. [ Daniel Jan 03, 2017 ]
Yes, YouTube is a built in app. Any streaming service that requires a subscription still requires one with this device. To use Amazon prime you need an Amazon prime account. Same with Netflix, etc. [ yz400e Jan 03, 2017 ]
As long as you have the player connected to your wireless router, yes you can access YouTube at no cost with no subscription needed. Make sure you check and update the player's firmware update because Sony has had some problems in the past on this player with YouTube functionality. As for other streaming services, some are free, such as basic Hulu and some are fee-based, like Netflix. [ Gregory Jan 02, 2017 ]
