Summary: When the Amazon Fire TV was released, I debated getting that or getting a Blu Ray player that would stream Amazon Prime so that I could both stream and watch Blu Rays. Obviously I went the Blu Ray route. It plays Blu Rays and DVDs just fine; this review is about the streaming capabilities. I had read all of the reviews before purchasing, so I was aware that when you first set up the Blu Ray, an update needed to load before Amazon Prime could be accessed.
Summary: Chose this specifically because it allowed for streaming from many sources including Amazon Instant Video. Imagine my dismay when I hooked it up and tried to stream from Amazon and got a screen that said "service coming soon". Also had trouble with losing Wifi signal. I suppose that could be my router (that's in the same room). Needs further investigation on that problem.
Summary: I contacted Sony today, regarding the Amazon Instant Video problem that other users have already reported here. Sony is aware of the issue. I was told by one of their CSR's that NONE of the 2014 models have working Amazon Instant Video. Supposedly, the issue has something to do with it's interaction with the Amazon service, and will be corrected with a firmware update which should be released sometime in April.
UPDATE: Has A Lot Of Promise But Can't Deliver On All The Features
5 February 2014
Summary: ***UPDATE 3/29/14: Sony finally released the software update for the BDP-S3200 which was suppose to correct the issues with the apps; when clicking on Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, and Vudu a window popped up that said "not available". With the software update Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, and Netflix were suppose to be working fine. However some people are still reporting issues with Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, and network errors when loading apps.
Excerpt: The DVD functionality is fine. The unit is small and light weight and better than the Yamaha it replaced. One of the things that I was most looking forward to was the ability to play movies from my computer over wifi. After moving the files and updating iTunes I've discovered that the DVD player isn't recognizing the mp4 file that iTunes uses. I've tried searching the Internet however I cannot find a fix. The other feature that is of little use to me is the iPad app.
Excerpt: This Sony Blu-Ray good but I entered its Web section to listen to music & after listening to the music I couldn't click to other music websites-Sent 3 emails to Sony to fix this but they couldn't help-Their email advice didn't fit in!
