Marketing Information

The future of home entertainment is here, and with the Sony BDP-S480 3D Blu-ray Disc Player you can enjoy all it has to offer. By that we're talking about full HD 1080p 3D visuals, network functionality with online streaming and privileged BD Live movie extras, and the capability to wirelessly stream your movies, photos and music from a PC. You can even kick back and control everything from your favorite spot with your iPad, iPhone, or compatible Android phone.

The Blu-ray format is capable of producing stunning, high definition images, as Blu-ray discs can hold up to five times as much as DVDs. As a full HD 1080p player, the BDP-S480 is capable of producing clear, crisp HD video on your HDTV. 24p True Cinema technology also enhances your cinema experience -- since most films were mastered at 24 frames per second, they're played back in the same way for high quality imaging. IP (interlaced to progressive) noise reduction cleans up images from your interlaced sources like DVDs, so they'll take on a more Blu-ray like picture quality.

But this player goes beyond disc-based media: you can stream internet content from Sony's proprietary BRAVIA platform and see movie extras like filmmaker chats and interactive quizzes when you pair it with an adapter and your home internet connection. Your new BDP-S480 also supports Gracenote Metadada Service, so you can see additional movie information or search across internet apps to find related entertainment. You can see movies from Netflix (subscription-based), create customized radio stations with Pandora and entertain yourself with internet videos from YouTube to transform your living room into a gateway for multimedia entertainment. Or, just stream from your PC to play your personal collection of music, movies and photos.

If you have Sony HomeShare network speakers, you can stream music wirelessly to other rooms of your house from a CD or services like Qriocity or Pandora with thanks to its PartyStreaming capability. For next generation A/V entertainment with 3D and full HD 1080p support as well as movie extras and online streaming, the BDP-S480 makes a superb choice. With a quick load and start time, you can start enjoying all this right away. To top it off, its high-gloss black finish offers a sleek presence next to your HDTV.

    Has a lot to offer but Netflix needs to be better.

    I just wanted to let Sony very aware of the Netflix issue. Also, where is the Live Sports? Remote response pretty slow

    Sony Support: "This unit must have the Sony UWA-BR100 USB wireless adapter to wirelessly connect to your network." If you are going to spend another $79.99 just to get Sony's wireless adapter, why wouldn't you just buy a better BR-Player? Other Thoughts: I connected two new USB wireless adapters I had that I use on the bench regularly to connect to my network. The BR-Player gave errors on both of them when I plugged them in. One - because I can't leave a zero. Waste of time!

    Love The Blu-ray Player

    By JiminSTLouis

    from St. Louis, MO

    Comments about Sony BDP-S480 3D Blu-ray Disc Player:

    I love the S480. Outstanding Blu-ray picture and I'm enjoying all the on line features, especially Netflix and HULU. The media remote is awesom! It was easy to set up and works great. The only thing I can't figure out is the Free Curser Remote. When it links to the device, it's not even an option. Thanks Sony for a great product!

    Great price with great streaming options

    By FalconEin

    from Romulus

    Comments about Sony BDP-S480 3D Blu-ray Disc Player:

    Bought this for my mum. It is easy to use and has all the streaming video options you could ever want. It loads up fast and once you complete all the one time setups for the services everything's great. Her Internet router sits under the tv next to this player so lack of wifi is a non issue. Works great with her Sony TV.

    mixed results

    By Beasley

    from Cincinnati

    Comments about Sony BDP-S480 3D Blu-ray Disc Player:

    functions as expected as a DVD player, great picture. Disappointing that the USB was not included and worse I couldn't use a cheaper model since only Sony's USB works; so an extra $80 for that feature. BDP forgets the wireless WPA key between uses and requires new set-up every time. Can't get caps on screen so have to run downstairs to the router each time. Free trial HULU not worth the price.

    works ok after installing the adapter

    By grandma

    from nj

    Comments about Sony BDP-S480 3D Blu-ray Disc Player:

    •USB Wi-Fi Ready : Yes (UWA-BR100 adapter not supplied) Wish I had read the specs more thoroughly before purchasing a WI-Fi ready and not WI-Fi already built in to it. I had to purchase the above mentioned adapter and it then let me set it up in a few minutes. I also purchased the one with the wi-fi already built in which was cheaper . By purchasing this one Plus the adapter it cost me $40.00 more than if I had bought the one with the built in wi-fi. Please read all the specs before purchasing. I am not saying anything against the product but it would have been cheaper and easier to set up. They both recognized my network with no problems. I specifically wanted these dvd players to use my netflix account on all my tv's even though some of my tv's are still analog.

    Blu-ray Disc player

    from Missouri

    Comments about Sony BDP-S480 3D Blu-ray Disc Player:

    I am electronics challenged so understanding the instructions was my first hurdle to cross. Understanding all the buttons on the remote is still baffling me. It is a very nice unit and plays the DVD's very well. My teenage grandkids can walk their way through all of this like it's a cakewalk.

    In a class of its own

    By BigMattSr

    from Indiana

    Comments about Sony BDP-S480 3D Blu-ray Disc Player:

    This is a great product, I have got four of this model 3 as gifts for my children and there is not any problems with this unit. If others wanted wireless built in they could simply purchased a product that has it built in and should not make it an issue with this device, I stand behind my words they our my bond, few these day care how they use words. If you want a great Blu-ray player this unit is for you, if you want wireless conectivity I would suggest a model or two higher. Your Friend Matthew

    Love it. Now how about an HBO GO firmware update?

    By AlanSmithee

    from Portland, OR

    Comments about Sony BDP-S480 3D Blu-ray Disc Player:

    I love streaming Netflix and Pandora through my player (I actually have the BDP-BX37, which isn't listed here). I get Blu-rays through Netflix, but frankly I just stream stuff much more often. Now I'm hooked on the new HBO GO service, and I want to watch through the BDP. Any chance of HBO GO in the next firmware update?

    Good Way to upgrade your TV for video streaming

    By LikeWatchingTV

    from Montreal, Quebec

    Pros

    • Add on new features to your existing LCD TV

    Cons

    • DLNA and internet browser need MUCH improvement

    Best Uses

      Comments about Sony BDP-S480 3D Blu-ray Disc Player:

      If you want to add Home network and video streaming features to your existing TV. You can simply get this BR player to do the job. The video streaming works fine. The menu is very easy to use, network connection setup is simple(ie we use LAN port, not wireless). You will need to plug in a flash drive on the back of the USB port to use BD Live. The Home network feature can only play video format of mpg or some Dvix format. You are better off to use a 3rd party DLNA media player (ie WD Live Player) to play all your video files from your home network. The internet browser is not a full feature one, it cannot display 100% all the site on the internet. If a site needs flash player plug-in, or silberlight plugin, it will not work.
      In general, it is a good blue ray disk player, if you are not into the new features, it could be wiser to buy an earlier model to save on the cost.
