You need a Philips WUB1100 Wi-Fi adapter to get Netflix or vudu. It must be purchased separately. Google it for several sources. Price plus shipping ranges from around $25 to $75. You can only connect the player to a TV with an HDMI port.

You will need a wireless adapter to connect this play to a wireless network. It does have Ethernet so if you are close to your router you can connect it using that. Also this play has HDMI only so make sure your TV has that connection too.

Your TV MUST be new enough to have an HDMI port. This does not have any of the RCA connectors, or S-video connectors that some older models had. The internet is an optional feature.
So if you don't have the HDMI capability, this is not the machine for you!

Make sure you have the dongle first, otherwise you can't get online at all (its an additional cost). Mine only has a HDMI connection. I don't believe there is an adapter out there.

answer 2
Simply, no. There is only an HDMI output on this machine. There are no others, such as an S connector or RCA plugs. As I suspect that this will increasingly be the case, you may want to search for a device that will accept HDMI and convert to the baseband RCA connections. It may prove difficult because HDMI also includes the audio and so you would need to separate the stereo audio from the video and end up with 5 RCA jacks.

You're only option then is the digital coaxial output which is a special cord you can only hope to find at the store.

I would go for an old school DVD player that allows your traditional cable wire as an output.

Question

Compatibility Issues?!

I have this Philips BDP2900 connected via HDMI to a Sceptre 40 Class (39" viewable) LCD 1080p 60Hz HDTV, X409BV-FHD TV. The Philips logo appears, but the main menu never appears on this TV. I have tried the BDP on another TV and it seems to work, but it will not work on the Sceptre. Why are these two devices seemingly incompatible?

I had the same issue exactly. They first try to fix it by using a BRD and forcing the resolution to change. It doesnt work for Sceptre. I had to return it.

Had the same problem. Would not work on my new Sceptre 32" but worked fine with my Proscan. Seems to be compatibility issue with the Sceptre and maybe others.

From what I read it only takes the wub1110. I found it here, but to me it is still too expensive for something that is supposed to be WiFi ready.

There appear to be lots of websites that sell the WUB 1110 adapter - just Google it - but the cost, with shipping, ranges from around $25 to $75. I tried to buy directly from Philips, but their page for purchases is really slow and I gave up after 10-plus minutes.
