Just when you thought you found the perfect Blu-ray player, the LG BD300, Netflix goes and teams up with yet another Blu-ray player manufacture and blesses it with Netflix streaming. So how do you score this wonderful unlimited streaming action? Via a free Firmware upgrade of course, but it’s only available to owners, or soon to be owners of Samsung’s BD-P2550 and BD-P2500 Blu-ray players. Additionally, Netflix says they expect to add this feature to other Samsung products.
And this whole time I thought there were some special hardware components inside the LG BD300 that enabled Netflix streaming. I wonder how LG feels? It’s been just days since the release of the LG BD300 and they can’t be none too happy.
The upgrade, which isn’t posted yet, is available here
