Bluray players need (needed?  Not sure if they still bother) Internet at least periodically, as they add new encryption codes as hackers break the old ones.

 

You don't need to keep them connected all the time though, only if a specific title you bought is failing to play so it can update the firmware for the new codes.

 

I've not had mine online in years now (as BD-LIVE is buggy on The Big Bang Theory, causing it to fail to play if online) and not had any fail to play.

 

Or do you mean you can't buy from online stores?

That's not true at all. The encryption has not changed since day one.

 

The PC software players had their keys revoked at one point and required an update. But I am not aware of any hardware player that needed an update for encryption.

 

The only reason to be online is to get firmware updates which are sometimes needed for certain discs but you can also update thru USB usually. My Oppo 203 has never been online and its last update was 5 years ago and it has no problem playing any new title.

They may not have changed, but the "official" line was that newer discs may use newer keys and thus all Bluray players have Internet connectivity, which is what the OP appeared to be asking.  It is of course also needed for BD-LIVE features, though most online features are likely offline at this point since many studios ditched Bluray.

 

There's also the annoying trend that for example Disney 4K releases don't have all the special features that are on Disney+.

 

I also mentioned that you don't need to use it unless a disk doesn't play, admittedly forgot to mention the USB update option.

The easiest way to get no internet on a 4k bluray player is to not plug in Ethernet or enter a wifi password. Even my 4k player from Sony which is so old it has an HDMI audio out has internet functions.
