The Wi-Fi-enabled Blu-ray player adds a unique spin on a changing home entertainment market, where most new generation Blu-ray players include Blu-ray and streaming support - but to stream content from mobile devices should be a feature more widely adopted in the future.

"The BD-S677 is a very flexible Blu-ray player that strives to eliminate the line between home and mobile entertainment by providing users the ability to share and enjoy their portable device content on televisions within their homes," said Bob Goedken, Yamaha Corporation of America GM of AV products, in a press statement. "Its ease-of-use will provide our customers quick navigation to a wider array of their favorite videos, pictures and music."

Yamaha will release an AV Controller App for both the iPhone and Android-powered phones that provide Blu-ray player and Yamaha network AV receiver control.

The Yamaha BD-S677 will be released in April with a $329.95 MSRP.
