Default Which players can output 24p for "streaming" ?

Most players I have across do not output 24p for streaming content (netflix, vudu) that is in 24p, even though they output 24p for discs. And most online streaming content is 24p. So are there any players out there that have the ability to output 24p for streaming content ?

I am considering the Panasonic DMP-BDT360 or 460 for purchase. If anyone could kindly confirm whether it has this ability or not I'd appreciate it very much.
Thanks.

You need to purchase a Smart HDTV with a 120Hz, 240Hz, or 480Hz refresh rate in order to view Netflix and Vudu at multiplies of 24fps. The Netflix and Vudu applications built into Smart HDTV’s offer true 24fps for movies, however at this time Netflix and Vudu only allow Blu-ray players to output 60Hz for streaming movies. Consumers need to contact Netflix and Vudu and request they write a software update that allows 24fps. All Blu-ray players on the market are forced to convert 24fps streaming movies to 60Hz until this issue gets resolved. It is disappointing that Smart HDTV’s offer better streaming quality currently with 4K at 24fps versus Blu-ray players with 1080P at 60Hz.

Thanks for the info. Its a shame it has to be this way though. I dont see any logical or practical reason why.
I will write to streaming providers and player manufacturers.

Well I called Netflix and they flatly denied that they have anything to do with controlling frame rate. Maybe I got the wrong person on the phone but thats what I have been told. Are you sure it is not the device manufacturers that put apps that dont handle 24p ?

Same with Netflix the last time I checked regarding 60Hz.

The following are select quotes from several email conversations I had with OPPO Digital INC

“At this time we are still forced to decode Vudu at 60Hz. This may change in the future.”

“Vudu is still 60Hz. Every player that we have tested is also 60Hz, with only televisions seeming to support 24Hz.”

I just found out on another forum that the new Sony bdp-s5500 is going to support 24p for streaming.

But why can't the AVP processing the streaming signal up convert to 1024p. My AVP is a Denon AVP-A1HDCI and up converts just about everything but it will not up convert the Netflix streaming signal.


Everything is at 1080 60(p)

Remember the streaming content would have to be 1080p to be streamed at 24 hrz.

The Sony UBP-X800 (and possibly the X700) does indeed output 24p for streaming apps by going to Setup - Screen Settings - 24p - and make sure to set "Setwork Content" and "Data Content" to on. This is only active when you watch a video within Prime Video, Vudu, and Netflix, as their menus are still at 60hz. However, it does not work with every single video you view, as stuff like TV shows that were 30fps and 25fps content will still be 60hz.
