Watch and listen in Full HD 1080P
Blu-ray is the clearest, most realistic video format to date, giving you images so sharp you can pick out every detail and crystal clear sound that makes you feel part of the world on screen. With Blu-ray you get five times the picture quality and ten times the sound quality of DVD, providing a powerful movie experience for all your senses. See colours come to life in 1080p resolution and experience the bangs, crashes and rumbles as if you were there with the latest multi-channel HD sound technology from Dolby®.

Watch your DVDs in near HD quality too
It's not just Blu-ray Disc™ movies that look brilliant with the S570. You can also marvel at your DVD collection in near HD 1080 quality thanks to Precision Cinema DVD Upscale technology which gets sharper, more detailed images from DVDs and makes revisiting your favourites a real pleasure.

Next generation viewing
Replicate the cinema experience in your living room. Watch the latest cutting-edge 3D movie thanks to its Full HD 3D Blu-ray Disc™ player. Connect to your 3D TV, put on the special Active Shutter glasses and you'll be taken straight into amazingly real, High Definition, detailed scenes which jump out of the screen towards you.

Wirelessly Explore a new world of entertainment
Bravia Internet Video lets you stream a wide variety of movies, TV episodes, videos and music from a large selection of entertainment apps and websites including YouTube™ and BBC iPlayer. Unlike the S370 or S470, the S570 has integrated WIFI so you can link up to your wireless network at the touch of a button.

Your photos and films on the big screen
Want to see your photos and videos on the big screen? Simply connect your digital camera or storage device to your S570 via the USB port at the front. The S570 also supports a large range of files types including DivX HD and MKV format, making it easier than ever to share personal entertainment from all over the home.

Super-fast operation
This player takes just three seconds to boot up, two seconds for the tray to eject and boasts super-fast disc loading time so you won't be kept waiting when you want to watch a movie. The Xross Media Bar (XMB) graphic user interface from Sony also means you can operate every part of your home cinema system easily from one place.

24p True Cinema technology for films as the director intended
With 24p True Cinema technology you can sit back and enjoy movies exactly as the director filmed them. Until now, if you watched a movie at home you'd see it played back slightly faster than at the cinema because standard TVs deliver images at 25 frames a second. Select 24p True Cinema for a more authentic movie experience.

Choosing the right Sony Bu-ray Player for you

Building on the BDPS370, next in the range is the BDPS470 which allows you to play next-generation 3D movies. 2010's flagship product from Sony, available from June, is the BDPS570 which combines all the innovative technology of the BDPS470 with integrated WiFi to wirelessly connect to your home network, along with a more premium design. Finally, why not consider maximising the enjoyment from Blu-ray by adding in the surround sound experience. Sony's Blu-ray Home Theatre range starts with the BDVE370.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good Value for money! 19 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase
Did quite a bit of research before buying a Blu-ray player - wanted something that did more than play B/ray - Internet video (esp iPlayer) & media streamer were two features high on the list. Whittled it down to the Sony or LG range, but went for this in the end & glad I did. Things that sold it were:-
1. Built-in WIFI... some models (including Sony) had option of WiFi dongles... but they're expensive & take a slot
2. DLNA functionality for home network media streaming
3. 3D for the day when I can afford a 3D TV!
4. Seems to have UK-specific functionaltiy like ITV/BBC players... something LG lacked
5. Price... all this a a (on Amazon at least) price that beat polayers with similar functionality

I was expecting a lot & its did pretty well meet my epxectations! Connected easily to home network wirelessly (no problems with signal so far), updated its firmware, picked up my NAS storage drive automatically (& videos/pics), plays a good selection of Web videos, connects to my laptop (once Media player setup), and even plays DVDs/BRs with no problems so far. Looks good & does the job very well!

I'm 'only' giving 4 stars because 5 stars to me means it has to be perfect, and this isn't quite pefect (what is!). Couple of minor niggles to me are:-
a. Remote feels a bit cheap
b. Some video formats (files on the networked drives) aren't recognised... doesn't like MKVs, and also certain AVIs (can't pinpoint what sort yet).
c. My PCs can view device on network... but haven't found a way of playing discs on the PCs yet (picky I know).

Overall... really impressed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow... 1 Sep 2010
By D. Hall
Ok, so having only bought cheapy £25 dvd players in the past, I thought it was about time that I splashed out a bit more for a decent player!
I knew that I wanted wifi connectivity, bluray and internet streaming, and did loads of research into what player to get. This Sony seemed to tick all the boxes.

All I can say is its an amazing at everything it does:

Setup is easy (even though there isn't really much to setup)
Bluray playback is stunning (To me it looks even better than the bluray playback on ps3)
BBC iPlayer is fantastic, with access to HD streaming too.
I haven't got a 3d tv, so cant test that.

The only slight niggle was streaming films from my laptop. Setting up in Windows Media Player, the DVD player just says 'no playable file'. But using Nero Mediahome, it worked straight away. But that's probably more something to do with laptop setup than the dvd players' fault.

So to sum up...Buy it! Im glad I did!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really very good 14 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase
It is a while since I bought a new DVD/Blueray player, I've always bought Sony and have been pretty impressed with the reliability. I may have paid a bit more, but have usually seen many years of good service.

Whilst the S570 does not appear to be as robust as my old player, it is a good looking, piano black box with tiny controls on the front facia.

Set up, once I had worked my way through the fairly slim instruction manual was very easy ... however, my player seemed to be shipped with German as the default language, so it took a few minutes to reset to English.

The internet connection to my home wifi was very easy and having done that I registered at Sony (for enhanced features) ... still not sure what they are yet, but am sure that will come to light later.

The next thing to do was check Network Updates ... there was a firmware update to do and that was downloaded and installed in minutes.

The menu Items are pretty intuitive and you basically scroll across for settings, and down for content.

The internet connection gives you access to a range of on-line service providers who will want to sell you pay per view access ... there is some free content and previews as well ... and iplayer and 5 on demand. I was a little disappointed that some of the other on-demand players were not available, but maybe more will joint later.

Before I get to the Blue-ray side of things, the full screen picture quality of the streamed content from iPlayer and 5OD was excellent. There is also access to YouTube ... again quality is better than I expected, but if I was to use on a very regular basis I would find the mobile phone type multi-keystroke approach to typing in the search word would be a bit trying ...

4.0 out of 5 stars almost flawless 16 July 2010
It does everything v.well (not tried out the 3D yet!) Linked in to my PC easily etc. Wifi link seems to be a problem as there is no external arial and BBC iplayer HD&SD content does not always stream (I have fast broad band and the wifi is quite close to the Player). However the blu ray picture and upscalling looks fantastic. If you are looking to future proof your player, this has got to be the way to go. I'm going to ditch the wifi option and run a ethernet cable to smooth out my internet viewing.
