The best 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players

Popular streaming services, like Netflix and Amazon, increasingly offer movies and TV shows you can watch in 4K resolution – if you have a 4K TV to watch them on, of course. But if you’re the kind of person who wants the best, uncompressed picture quality from your movie sessions and TV binges, you need to invest in a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player.

Why’s that? When you display video content from a disc you don’t get the same risk of buffering or varying resolution as over an internet connection, making for a more consistently high-quality picture. New 4K Blu-ray discs also tend to pack in the most advanced and premium HDR formats, such as Dolby Vision – or even Dolby Atmos surround sound audio.
