Internet Apps in TV & Player
I have a 47-inch TV with Internet apps. Is there an advantage to getting a DVD player with Internet apps as well?
I assume you mean a Blu-ray player, since I don't think there are any DVD players with Internet apps.
To answer your question, it does make sense to get a Blu-ray player with apps, especially if it's from a different manufacturer than the TV. Each company offers apps for different content providers, and while there's lots of overlapfor instance, most offer Netflix and YouTubesome other company's player might offer access to a provider than your TV doesn't. And even if both let you access what you want, some apps offer different experiencesuser interface, functionality, quality of stream, etc.and the player's might be better.
If you get a Blu-ray player from the same manufacturer as the TV, the apps are likely to be the same, giving you fewer options.
