Is there a 4k UHD player that also streams netflix, prime and disney+?

Hello, im looking for a high quality all in one device for my home theater. Is there such a thing that exists? A good quality uhd blue ray player that can stream all 3 services as well?

XBox One or PS4 should be able to do it.

PS4 is not a 4k UHD player.

Xbox One and PS5 can do it. PS5 doesn't do Dolby Vision though (don't know if Sony will eventually add it).

Are you asking about a Blu-ray player to play physical disks? If not, I recommend Apple TV 4K.

D'oh. You're right. I forgot about the limitation on the PS4. So, amend my original answer to Xbox One should be able to do it.

Roku will do all of those, with a simple interface. I use Rokus all over the place, including with my elderly parents, and can't get any simpler really, with no spam taking up half the screen.

Also cheaper than all other options listed, unless you already have an Xbox One or PS5

How do you play a Blu-ray disk on a Roku?

Doh...reading comprehension fail. Thought he just wanted a media player for those 3 services in 4k. Nevermind, ignore. I didn't know people still seek physical media so must have gone right over my head as I read.

Yes, I am seeking an actual archaic physical media player lol.

I do have a series x and ps5. I am wondering how much of an improvement a high quality player will have in comparison. Its for a dedicated movie room environment with projector.

video and sound quality will pretty much be the same really the only dif on High end players is build quality. Image

like here is a shot of panasonic $1200 player it just has better build quality and some pro level connections like xlr vs the $500 witch pretty much has the same features less connections and its more plasticy.

Oppo UDP-203/205 but those are out of production and punters are (trying to) selling them for multiples more than the new price.

These are well reviewed.

Panasonic DP-UB420
Panasonic DP-UB820

Main difference is that UB820 has 7.1-channel analog RCA audio output, which you can connect to an amplifier without an AVR.
It has a 2 channel o/p mode for stereo listening.

Both supports high res audio with 32-bit/192kHz 4-DAC and most audio formats.

Panasonic DP-UB9000 - has 32-bit/768kHz AKM DACs - flagship model

It was the audiophile's choice. I found a BD-105 locally (sadly not a Darbee) but am satisfied with it.

Another major difference between the 420 and 820 is the 820's support for Dolby Vision.

I don't know what the Xbox can do sound wise but if you're not a audiophile I doubt you'll see much of a difference.
