Broadcom announced today that they have entered a deal with Samsung to let them put their Blu-ray decoder chipset into their next generation players. The reason you care is that the Broadcom chipset will allow both reading and writing of media, and the possible inclusion of Netflix’s streaming video functionality at lower costs. Expect to see these bad boys sometime in Q1 of next year.
