LG BP550
LG's 2015 Blu-ray players will have wireless audio

While we are waiting for the Ultra HD Blu-ray players, LG has announced a range of new HD Blu-ray players. The BP550 and BP450 will support LG’s Multiroom system that lets the players connect wirelessly to speakers and soundbars.

Four new Blu-ray players have been announced called BP550, BP450, BP350, and BP250. It is possible that LG will be adding a UHD Blu-ray player later this year where the new standard is expected to be ready, but for now we have no details.

The BP550 and BP450 players support HD and 3D Blu-ray. Another new feature is Multiroom – or Music Flow – which makes it possible to output movie audio wirelessly to LG’s “Music Flow” speakers, consisting of soundbars, surround systems and portable speakers.

BP550, BP450, and BP350 will all offer apps for streaming services such as Netflix, as well as DLNA streaming. The smart features are not based on the webOS platform that LG is using in its TVs, but instead the old NetCast platform. BP550 also supports Miracast, allowing you to mirror your screen onto the TV if your other device also supports Miracast. The BP250 has none of the smart features.

The new players will be available in Europe shortly. Most of the players are already shipping in the US.
