Buyer Beware! The Amazon Instant Video app may be missing from this player!

jwcosta, Amazon

  • Summary: Buyer beware! We purchased the DMP-BDT220 player from Costco. The model number was designated as DMP-BDT220CP. On certain blu-ray players with this model number, the Amazon Instant Video app is missing and there is no way to download it! After spending about an hour trying to figure it out on my own, I called Panasonic technical support and was told that this bug affects approximately 1 in every 10 of these players.

"CNET didn't test long enough"

  • Pros: It is a fine blu-ray player, and streams all of the services I like (Amazon, Vudu, Hulu+ and Netflix*)
  • Cons: Netflix - do a search for "Panasonic and Netflix" and you will discover that Viera Connect (on TVs and Blu-Ray players) has had on-going problems with streaming Netflix.

Mixed bag with some big flaws

Supertzar, Amazon
24 October 2012
  • Summary: This Blu-Ray player plays DVDs and Blu-ray discs really well - a really quick start-up for instance, far quicker in fact than other Panasonic DVD products (eg Panasonic DMR-EZ49vEBK Super Multi Format Combi Recorder with Freeview which takes an age to fire up). I just wanted to warn potential buyers of a few big flaws in this unit. Firstly, it doesn't remember where you got to when watching a disc.

BBC iPlayer problems

mjcmoppel, Amazon
13 October 2012
  • Summary: Bought this unit from Amazon in May and up to the beginning of October I was very pleased. All of a sudden the BBC iPlayer app dispays a security issue dialogue box when you play a programme, that you cannot get rid of! Having contacted the BBC they have told me that this player has not yet been certified to play content from BBC iPlayer. Here is a link below to their current list of certified devices.
