What is Blu-ray?

Blu-ray is a disc storage technology, expected to be the successor to the current DVD format in the home video market. Blu-ray discs have higher storage capacity and are able to display high definition content at a 1080p resolution, providing better picture and sound than DVDs. Many new movies, when released on DVD, are now also available in Blu-ray.

  • A Blu-ray player is required to play Blu-ray discs. Blu-ray players can also play DVDs, but DVD players cannot play Blu-ray discs.
  • To view Blu-ray movies in HD, you must connect your Blu-ray player to your HDTV with an HD cable, such as an HDMI cable.
