Yet there’s one big caveat. In a world of smart, connected devices the UP870 is fabulously, gloriously “dumb.” Answer me this: Do you buy a Blu-ray player based on how well it streams Netflix? If yes, then you should probably stop reading now. The UP870 doesn’t stream Netflix, Amazon, YouTube or anything at all.
On the other hand you probably already have multiple streaming devices, so you don’t really need streaming on your Blu-ray player. The UP870 also excludes other stuff you probably won’t need or use, such as, and concentrates on the necessities. The LG is cheap and it’s good. What else do you want?”
