You’ll soon be able to stream Netflix movies on certain Samsung Blu-ray players. The official announcement is expected later today, but we already have a couple of details.
From the current player lineup, only the Samsung BD-P2500 and BD-P2550 will be compatible; more players are expected to be compatible as we move forward. You can find those players for around $400 and $300 online, respectively. (
Though it looks like Amazon is having a sale on the P2550 right now—only $215. WRONG! See, the BD-2550 is actually$489 on Amazon. Double checking helps sometimes.)
You’ll still need the $8.95 per month Netflix subscription to use the service. Since you’re streaming movies on a Blu-ray player, you might as well pony up the $1 for the Blu-ray rental service, too.
Don’t forget that your Xbox 360 will soon be able to stream movies.
And that’s all we know so far. The official announcement can’t be too far off.
