    The specs say this BDP-S6700 is not "smart capable", yet some lower models are. What is the difference between a smart capable player and one that isn't? What does "smart capable" mean? Do you need a newer smart tv?   (1 Answer)

      Answer

      Hi Velo, based on the specifications of this unit, this is a smart Blu-ray player that you can stream from 300+ entertainment services, play PlayStation Now games and upscale your content to near-4K quality13. Even connect wirelessly to Bluetooth headphones, wireless speakers, game controllers and more. No, you don't need a newer smart TV to connect this unit. As long as there's an HDMI input port on your TV, this player should work. Dave

        This unit will not up-convert a regular dvd, but it will make them look better. Blu-ray discs do up-convert to give a 4k like image.

          Answer

          Hello mRwR, thank you for your message. Many commercially-produced DVD movies contain regional coding to prevent the playback of the disc in a geographical area other than the one in which it was released. DVD movies released in one region may only play on DVD players manufactured for that same region. This is done because many studios and home video companies want to control how and when DVD titles are exported to other countries. However, some DVD movies are not region coded and will play on any player in any region. Region 1 fpr Canada, the United States and U.S. territories. -Oscar.

                S6700 has 3D. I used to have S6500 also and S6700 has much better picture quality paticularly in streaming services.

                  I already have a 4K UHD Sony TV (XBR55X810C). Will the BPD-S6700 make any DIFFERENCE IN PICTURE QUALITY while playing Blue-ray DVD's? I am now using an old (4year old) Sony blue ray player. Thanks, Cartman   (1 Answer)

                    Hi Cartman, The Blu-ray player will be able to upscale HD discs to near 4K quality aside from the TV's capability to improve the picture of the video being played. «Jerome
