How Do I Connect My Blu-ray Player to the Internet?

With a Sony Blu-ray disc player, you can stream a wide variety of movies, TV episodes, music videos, live sports events, and more. But how do you connect your player to the internet? Here are the steps for setting up your Sony Blu-ray disc player to connect to your wireless network.

First, make sure your Blu-ray disc player is connected to your TV, and you’re able to view the menu of the player on the TV. If you haven’t done this yet, you can find the steps to make this connection with the Quick Start Guide or owner’s manual.

Once your TV and Blu-ray disc player are connected, turn them both on. Select the proper input that your player is connected to on your TV.

Using the remote for your Sony Blu-ray disc player, press the home button. Using the remote arrow keys, scroll to the far left to the setup icon. Using the remote arrow keys, scroll down to network settings and press enter. Highlight internet settings and press enter. Highlight wireless set-up and press enter. Highlight scan and press enter.

Your Blu-ray disc player is looking for all wireless connections within your range. This screen shows a list of available wireless connections. Highlight your network and press enter. If you have a password on your network, you’ll need to enter it at this point.

You will now see a screen that shows “please select how to set up the IP address and proxy server settings of the unit.” Highlight Auto and press enter. You will see a screen that shows you how your network is configured. This is just an overview of your network. You do not need to take any action at this screen. Use the right arrow key to continue.

You will see a screen that shows “to establish a connection, select save and connect.” Highlight save and connect and press enter. You will see the message “connecting to the network, please wait.” The connection to your wireless network is now complete, and you can see the confirmation that you are connected on the screen. Press enter to return to the home menu.

Now that you’re connected to the internet, you can use your left arrow key to go back to network setting. Use the right arrow key to go to network, highlight internet browser, and press enter. Press the options button on the remote, and the browser setup is displayed. Highlight URL entry and press enter. This displays the software keyboard, which allows you to type in a website address.

For example, if you want to visit Sony’s website, type in “” using the arrow key to select each letter. Once a letter is highlighted, press enter. Once you have spelled out the complete website address, press the green enter button on the remote. You can use the arrow keys to move around the webpage.

By following these simple steps, you can easily connect your Sony Blu-ray disc player to the internet and enjoy all the streaming content available.
