It’s Time To Switch To Blu-ray
Do you own a High Definition television? Still watch and buy films on DVD? Now really is the time to switch to blu-ray for a several reasons. First off the picture quality is simply breathtaking and not only on new titles as most classics have now been fully restored. Experience movies the way they were intended in the correct picture aspect ratios and no annoying adverts as on many TV channels. Still not convinced and think streaming is the better option? Well the quality of services such as Netflix is subject to your internet connection meaning variable picture quality unlike blu-ray which is the same from the start of the movie to the end.
Finally, whilst there are 4K blu-ray players readily available you don’t need to opt for that as unless you have a huge television, the expense really doesn’t make too much sense right now (although the prices are coming down to a more reasonable price point for both 4K TV & blu-ray players) . What does make sense is to purchase a standard blu-ray player which can be had for as little as £50-60. Oh and one more point and this really is the final one, many of your favourite films are now available fully restored but these new versions are often only available on blu-ray.
Some of the best deals around at the moment are listed below including an LG Bluray player for around £50-55. If you prefer a Sony you can pick up the Sony BDPS1700B can now be had for around £70, whilst if your budget will stretch a little further your can pick up a 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Player for around £180.
That just abouts concludes our look at the UK Cinema Charts June 1 2018, come back next week to see whether Solo: A Star Wars Story can hold on to the number one spot on the UK Top 10 Film Chart.
