My 10 y.o. Samsung blu ray does not support several newer apps, including the Spectrum app I need for streaming video. However, it could download and use many other apps. The newer smart dvd's only appear to support pre-loaded apps or a limited range of apps.

Does anyone know of a smart dvd that supports spectrum app? I realize I could buy a roku for my 12 y.o. tv or a newert smart tv, but I would like to a) avoid additional remotes, etc and b) avoid buying a new tv.
Thx

Get a Roku for streaming and use the DVD player for DVDs.

Smart TV are likely to have the same issue as DVD player.

DvD's are going the way of the music CD, a dying format.

Oppo just recently announced they will no longer make Disc players.

So it's a rapidly shrinking market. Get a Roku, and a Logitech programmable remote to run all your stuff.

I get that the format is not what it used to be but I still like watching certain movies on DVD...mostly Blu-ray. I've had cause to buy 4 Blu-ray players in the last 2 years...for both homes we have.
I bought two recently on eVay...both refurbs. They are compact these days. Got an LG which is great, a Samsung "curved" model and I bought a refurb Panasonic about 2 years ago. The only new one I bought was a Sony...a complete POS and the reason I just bought the Samsung. All are the hardwired app connection not wireless.
