A Blu-ray is an optical disc storage medium that is an improvement upon the DVD format. Blu-ray disks have 25 gigabytes of storage per layer, and are available in single- or dual-layer. Connecting a Sony Blu-ray player to the Internet can be very easy if you use a wired connection, but wireless makes it a little more difficult, depending on the exact player you have--most just require a wireless adaptor.
