If you just want to watch Netflix etc on your dumb TV, great advice from UKBFG

Get a streaming box/dongle, which are designed for the purpose and will get updates and have loads of apps available. They're better, portable and more convenient. I'd recommend any of these:-
Roku Streaming Stick:- amazon.co.uk/Rok…68K
Amazon Fire Stick:- amazon.co.uk/Sti…FOW
Chromecast:- currys.co.uk/gbu…ast

I have all 3 and they all have their pros and cons, but none of them are noticeably slow or laggy, so I'd say it was a moot point. a lot depends on what apps/services you want to access as it varies per device.

Google for proper detailed comparisons, but if in doubt, I'd go for the Roku, as they're more open and support more services. The Firestick is more closed and promotes Amazon content more.

If you're the sort of person who has all the apps you need on your smart phone, always have it to hand and don't use Amazon Prime Video, go for a chromecast (your phone is your remote).

all 3 will support Netflix. I'd personally go for the Roku if I had to choose only one as it's a more open platform and supports more services (pretty much everything!), but the firestick is decent if what you want is available on it, but it does have a strong Amazon content bias, which could be annoying if you don't use Amazon much.

Chromecast specialises in casting to non-smart TV's (In fact, it's all it does do!), so that's probably your best best for casting, but I think the other 2 do offer limited versions of casting now.

Should add that it needs an Ethernet connection to access the internet as there is no built in Wi-fi.

Worth checking Sony players. My 5 yr old player got Amazon video support.

Making some assumptions, your tv isn’t smart, so likely not to be 4K so you don’t need upscaling, you’ve probably already got a non-smart Blu-ray player, I’d be recommending an amazon fire tv stick, you can even install kodi (one for google) on it in about 10mins.

No and no. Min about £180 for a 4k Player or buy and Xbox One S or X.

Think this 4K upscaling business is pretty misleading.

Why? Surely a budget 4k will be better than an upscaler that your 4k TV will do natively anyway.

I was actually referring it's 4k disc playing ability. If you have a good 4k TV the upscale for blu ray discs probably be better than that of the player.

I managed to get a Samsung UBD-M7500 real 4K bluray player brand new sealed for £66 delivered on eBay. Admittedly, I probably got quite lucky with a best offer (buy it now was £100), but I believe with time someone could get a similar kind of deal, as a lot of these lower end (though still very well reviewed) Samsung players get bundled with 4K TVs in big retailers and most customers aren't bothered about them and would just rather have a bit of money back for it. Hence, I'm guessing loads of them end up on eBay, and if the market gets saturated enough you can scoop up some truly amazing bargains!

The M7500 is the lowest spec 4K Bluray player but the internals are the same as the popular UBD-K8500 it just doesn't have wifi or a second HDMI, neither of which makes any difference to me, couldn't be happier with it and as a Xbox One S owner too I can confirm it is noticeably better for 4K Bluray....

Samsung have all the apps.
I wouldn't buy it without at least 2 yrs warranty (get John Lewis to pricematch if you can).

My bdt-160 (old model with same specs, 4k upscaling etc) gave in after 13 months. These cheap Panasonic's are pretty shite

Unless they re-release every single DVD to Blu-Ray then yes.
