Getting a free DVD player may be a no-brainer decision for some, but for others, it may be such a big deal. After all, getting a DVD player entails spending a few dollars. In its early days, the most high-end DVD players would cost several hundred dollars, but nowadays, the price has gone drastically lower, due to the demand for DVDs also falling due to online streaming on various sites like Youtube or Netflix becoming the more popular way of watching movies. Despite that though, getting a DVD player can be a need for people. When is this so? Let’s find out below.

If you don’t have a smart TV

Smart TVs enable you to do online streaming straight from your TV set, and will also allow you to watch a movie straight from a flash drive through a USB port which is usually at the back. Older TVs are not equipped with such features, but come with A/V ports for video viewing, which are compatible with that of CD and DVD players.

If you’re not very techie

The mechanisms of DVD players are not at all very different from that of CD players, which have been around prior. Smart TVs come with a complicated interface that some people may find hard to adjust to. These players also don’t make use to too many wirings, don’t need WiFi or Bluetooth, and all other connective devices which means that you can configure things and do it all on your own.

If you’re fond of movies

People who are so into movies will make it a point to get devices that they need to access movies as quickly as possible. Movie lovers have just about every device that’s needed for you to watch movies, which makes a DVD player a must-have for them.
