    The wife and I are looking to ditch our 'expanded basic" cable subscription, just getting ridiculous with the bill.
    Started ordering movies from Netflix, great! Just got season 1, episode 1 of Game of Thrones and my built-in-tv Blu ray won't play it. I've had trouble before, so I'm looking for a separate player.
    Anything out there that you like?

    The used record store near me sells them cheap. They come with a month guarantee. I have a Sony Blu-ray and a PS3 I bought there a few years ago. No problems with either.

    I bought an LG - Streaming Audio Blu-ray Player that was $53 after taxes. It plays discs just fine, I haven't tried the streaming stuff though

    What's a Blu Ray? :dancingbanana:

    Costco has decent smart Blu Ray players for around $50. If it stops working, return it.

    Streaming is the best, but it's not an option for some folks out in the country or outside of town etc.

    I don't have unlimited data or whatever it is called. Plus it is nice to have something to watch if the internet goes down

    Not everything is available to stream. I have a lot of movies on disc that are not on line.

    I still have a few VHS tapes and 2 Beta tapes that will probably never be available on line or disc. And one Laser Disc that will never be available again. I had to smuggle that one into the county.

    I have 2 Sony BD players that have been fine. The best feature for me is the 10 or 15 second skip forward or back buttons. Not to be confused with fast forward/fast reverse or next-chapter buttons. The newer one did not have the skip forward button. I found the feature worked using my old remote on the new player. So I ordered another matching remote online, did not cost much.
    Note for Xfinity and Cox cable customers. The skip buttons default to 5 minutes. You can change it to 30 seconds.
