Enjoy Christmas 2D/3D Blu-ray on PS4 When Staying at Home

Two years into its life cycle and the Sony PlayStation 4 has definitely reached its stride. The eighth-generation game system packs the same impressive power, excellent DualShock 4 controller, and nearly identical interface it had when the system launched, and remains a strong, compelling package. The PS4 now uses Sony’s C-Chassis, a slightly different case from the launch PS4 that retains nearly identical dimensions and button/port/drive positions, but is lighter and completely matte black. If you plan to watch Blu-ray movies on PS4 via Blu-ray drive, you will spend much money on PS4’s Blu-ray drive.

The PS4 does support Blu-ray profiles 1.1 (Bonus View) and 2.0 (BD-Live). Is there another way to stream and play Blu-ray movies on PlayStation 4 (PS4)? How to play 3D Blu-ray on PlayStation 4 (PS4)?
