Thank you for your post.
It is not possible to add additional streaming content providers to the list that was included with the unit.

Re: Help! How do I add apps to Blu-ray/DVD player?

I don't understand. When I first purchased my Sony BDP-S270 dvd/blueray player, it only had a few apps available. The last time I updated via the devices update choice, it added many apps. If Sony can add apps vias an update, why can't the owner of the product? How would I go about updating or requesting an update? Seems to me that if Sony wanted us to continue purchasing Sony products, they would give the Owner of the product the same ability. If I have to purchase another unit just to get the apps I want, you can bet it will never be another Sony product. Thank you.

Hi dsuperdave,

 

Welcome to Sony Community!

 

Adding or downloading an application is not available with Sony Blu-ray player. You can only use the factory pre-loaded apps. Additional features will only be availabe through software updates. Let me forward your feedback to the proper department, as we always place a very high value on feedback from our customers because it allows us to continue to improve.

 

Thanks!

 

Jerome

It seems a shame that I have no personal control over what I purchase even though Sony can add apps at thier discression. This is a form of censorship by Sony, didn't Microsoft get in trouble for doing that exact same thing and it cost them a ton. Surely there's something Sony can do or offer those of us who are stuck with this particular censoring product.
