Give the latest blockbuster movies a cinematic feel. Enjoy your favourite DVDs in extra detail. Play movies, music and video channels straight from the Internet. Our new BDP-S185 Blu-ray Disc™ Player is an affordable way to start enjoying the latest home entertainment without compromising on style or quality.

Soak up the real atmosphere
Movie evenings at home will never be the same again. Enjoy every thrill of an action film or whispered word from a romantic comedy. Blu-ray Disc™ from Sony delivers up to 10 times the sound quality and 5 times the picture quality of DVD. You can even upscale DVDs from your collection to near High Definition quality and replay your favourite movie scenes in a whole new light.

Create your own TV time
Got the sofa to yourself or the whole family to amuse? The BDP-S185 can help you find just the thing for the occasion. Go online and access the Sony Entertainment Network to choose films from leading movie studios, including the latest blockbusters or classic movie titles. Sit back, relax and listen to over 10 million songs. Or stream the best of the web, video sharing sites and catch-up TV straight to your screen. It’s time you took control of your free time.

Transform life in the living room
Stylish and sophisticated, the BDP-S185 Blu-ray Disc™ Player will change how you view home entertainment. Enhance the room with its compact size, only 290mm wide, and elegant black finish (also available in silver as the BDP-S186). Share movies, music and photos using the USB port.

“The BDP-S185 Blu-ray Disc™ Player is ideal if you want to take a first step into the future of entertainment at an affordable price,” says Anthony Koustelos, General Manager of Home Audio Video Business at Sony Europe. “From watching Full HD Blu-ray Disc™ movies to streaming the latest on-demand, online services, the entertainment possibilities are endless.”

Reducing environmental impact
The BDP-S185 Blu-ray disc player demonstrates a significant reduction in environmental impact. It uses 47 per cent less power than its predecessor and is wrapped in a unit approximately one third narrower. The smaller size means more efficient transport packing and a lower unit weight, cutting shipment-related carbon emissions by 40 per cent. Its low power consumption of just 10 watts and compact size means it’s good for the environment and your pocket too.

Sony BDP-S185 Blu-ray disc player is available from October 2011. Exact date of availability varies by country.
