You've got some other problem (although not necessarily your bluray player). I would say that nowadays probably at least 65% of Netflix's content is in 1080 and probably a third of that is in 24p.

The highest 1080p stream that Netflix supports is 5.8mb/s. Even if you have a 1000mb/s connection it doesn't matter, Netflix still won't send you anything higher than 5.8.

Yes, I am aware that the device supports 24p in general. However, support for 24p in streaming services on Sony devices depends on the service. In the 2015 models, 24p is supported for Amazon...

I should have been more specific... I was talking about the WDTV Live player.

My 3 years old Panasonic BDT220 also plays Netflix in 24p.

To be honest, he was exaggerating a bit... not everything on Netflix is in 24p, but a significant portion of their content is.

There are already several players that stream Netflix in 24p (like...
