Samsung to bring Netflix HD to Blu-ray players

Samsung BD & Netflix HD

Streaming of high-definition Netflix movies should soon be added to a pair of Samsung Blu-ray players, the latter company has announced. The feature will be delivered in the form of a firmware update for the two Blu-ray drives, the BD-P2500 and BD-P2550, as of the first week of December. The players were enabled for streaming standard-definition Netflix content in late October.

Netflix has engaged in rapid expansion of its streaming services in recent months, having most recently partnered with Microsoft to deliver HD streaming through Xbox Live and the Xbox 360. Netflix has a comparatively limited number of HD movies and TV shows in its Watch Instantly library, but such titles are presented in 720p instead of the 420p offered by SD. HD is expected to come to the Roku set-top box before 2009.
