CNET First Look

[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi, I'm Molly Wood from CNET.com here at Sony's 2009 Line Show. I'm taking a First Look at the BDP-S560 Blu-ray Disc Player behind me. Now, obviously this is a Blu-ray DVD player. It also plays back standard DVDs and CDs, but the big story about this device is that it's equipped with Wi-Fi, Wireless Internet Access. Now, what Sony says is that this allows you to wirelessly access the Internet-only BD live content that comes along with the Blu-ray disc. So, for example if you bought a concert DVD that came with some optional songs over BD live instead of having to plug this device in via Ethernet you could download those songs wirelessly. Now, it will also look for -- for example photos on your computers so that you could wireless playback a slide show. It makes it a little bit more of a full-featured device, which is kind of what people are looking for when they're talking about spending say $350 on a DVD player. This device should be available in the summer for as I said about $350 and I have to say that Wi-Fi is a bit of a draw. For CNET.com, I'm Molly Wood. ^M00:01:04 [ Music ]
