Racks ears are sold separately. I Got the player yesterday from BB. I don't stream and even if I had the urge to do it, I'd use the apps on my Sony TV which are plenty. I think streaming apps on BD players are redundant these days and not needed anymore. The majority of TV's today comes with lots of apps, then you have Rocku, Amazon fire stick, Apple TV etc. BD players should only be for playing discs and so far this new Sony doesn't disappoint. PQ and AQ is on par with my Oppo 203 and operation is fast and smooth. They only negative so far is that damn DV manual toggle. I hope Sony listens and patch this up via firmware.
