By connecting your TV to the SMP-N100 network media box from Sony you'll open up a new world of entertainment. Like the sound of having instant access to BBC iPlayer, Demand Five, and on-demand services from Sony Entertainment Network, YouTube and LoveFilm? With the SMP-N100 that's just what you get. Set up is simple thanks to the 'easy setup' feature and integrated WiFi. You can even connect a USB storage device so you can view movies and photos or playback your music on your TV.

Easy setup with Integrated WiFi
With an easy setup Wizard, getting started with the SMP-N100 couldn't be simpler. The SMP-N100 supports both composite (RCA) and component (Y Pb Pr) video connections, ensuring compatibility with virtually all television sets. However for best connectivity and to deliver a full HD1080P signal, we recommend connecting via HDMI cable to your full HD TV. Accessing the internet is easy too, simply search and wirelessly connect to your home network (the SMP-N100 will take you through this process automatically when you first start up).

Superior sound
The optical audio output produces high fidelity audio or pass-through audio signal to your AV receiver or your Home Theatre system - so that you can experience an immersive surround sound experience in the comfort of your own home.

BRAVIA® Internet Video lets you stream a wide variety of movies, TV episodes, videos and music from a large selection of entertainment apps and websites including YouTube and BBC iPlayer. Best of all, whenever Sony adds a new service to BRAVIA Internet Video, you'll automatically have access to this new service as well.

Watch and listen in full HD
See colours come to life in 1080p resolution and experience the bangs, crashes and explosions as if you were there with the latest multi-channel HD sound technology from Dolby®.

A familiar user interface
The SMP-N100 uses Sony's unique Xross Media Bar (XMB) graphic user interface. If you've used a PlayStation®3 you'll be familiar with the interface already. If you haven't don't worry, it's simple to use and designed to maximise your media experience.

Beautiful design

A blend of high-quality materials are used to create a beautiful finish and bring elegance and style into your living room.

 OK but suggest reviewing other options before buying

Should have read the details more carefully as this only gets BBC iPlayer and Ch 5 programmes (for now at least) not ITV and Ch 4. Box is small and neat. Remote could be better laid out in my view (no QWERTY keyboard so "typing" to search for, say, Youtube clips is a pain).

Works reasonably OK with my slow broadband (c2Mb). Watched some programmes without a problem; others stop every now and again while the signal catches up which is frustrating. Probably time of day related so not ideal for those who do their viewing in the evenings.

I would suggest anyone looking for a product like this does more research than I did to ensure the spec meets their requirements.

Note to other reviewer - review the product not my review. I said what I said and stand by it. The product should support ITV player and 4OD on launch and it doesn't therefore not as good as a player that does. The remote if not great. 3/5 seems fair as it stands

Great piece of kit, plays most video and music formats straight off a USB stick or HDD, the iPlayer app is awesome, as is the video on demand. High build quality that you would expect from Sony. Take the previous reviewers comments with a pinch of salt - it is well publicised that ITV and C4 aren't supported (yet); don't knock the device for your inability to read...

Brilliant piece of kit

The only negative for me was that the wireless made the streaming a little slow, but to be fair my router is the other side of the house, so if your router is going to be near this box it shouldn't be a problem.

If like me it is an issue, play.com do adapters that you plug into your mains to enable a LAN cable to be used

Everything else is wonderful, and I thoroughly recommend this, it adds another dimention to your viewing experience!

 Cool box of tricks to instantly upgrade your TV!

Bought this device for my Dad who is a complete technophobe but he wanted to start using BBC iPlayer to catch up on his favourite shows. I couldn't manage to get him to upgrade his decades-old set to something more modern so I found this device to be the best solution.

The media player has a whole range of connections that should make it work with just about any old television and also has wireless internet connectivity which I found to be a doddle to set-up. The menu system is very easy to navigate and apart from BBC iPlayer there is a whole range of other video services to choose from, including catch up TV from Channel Five, Lovefilm, YouTube etc. I also like the USB port at the front which allows you to view back photos and videos on your TV.
