Samsung Blu-ray players to deliver Netflix in HD

The title says it all, a couple of Samsung Blu-ray players will be getting access to Netflix in HD. Adding extra options such as Netflix streaming is one sure way to increase market share :). I guess Xbox 360 users won’t have all of the fun for too much longer.


amsung Electronics America, a market leader and award-winning
manufacturer of consumer electronics, today announced that its two
cutting-edge Blu-ray players, the BD-P2500 and BD-P2550, will now have
direct access to the first several hundred movies and TV episodes made
available by Netflix that can stream via the players in high
definition. Available during the first week of December through a
simple firmware update, both players are among the first Blu-ray
stand-alone players to allow consumers the ability to instantly view
hi-definition content from the popular movie rental service.
