Sony Announces New Range of Blu-ray Players

CNET reports that Sony has announced the launch of four new Blu-ray players at CES 2011. These Blu-ray players will cover various price ranges so there’s something for everyone.

Sony's new Blu-ray lineup - looking good

Here’s what they’ll be showcasing:

  • SACD playback
  • Bravia Internet Video streaming media suite (Netflix, Amazon VOD, Hulu Plus, Pandora, YouTube, Slacker, Qriosity)

Sony has obviously decided to step their game up a couple of notches as other electronics companies are also unveiling some pretty cool products. For instance, Samsung will be showing off the world’s slimmest Blu-ray player, which looks really gorgeous. But I’m pretty sure that Sony will have their share of limelight at CES 2011, as these Blu-ray players have some pretty cool features.
