    Difference Between DVD Player and Blue Ray Player 12th Apr 18 at 8:24 PM
    We are on a Virgin TV full package and have HD Channels. I also have a lot of old DVD's which I sometimes lake to watch. My old DVD player about 15 years old is very basic and may soon need replacing. Can I buy a cheap DVD player that will give me a better picture.What would the advantage be of purchasing A Blue Ray player which I believe would be a lot more expensive. what extra does A blue ray Player do over a DVD Player. Any suggestions what model would be suitable for my simple needs. I don't want or need to spend a lot of there any advantage of buying what I believe is called an upscalling model of a DVD player.

    It won't make your old DVD's look better but if you buy a new film on Blue ray it will look a lot better then the DVD version
