Partnership brings new content to Blu-ray systems

Samsung and Blockbuster have announced a collaborative effort to bring additional content to Samsung's HDTVs, Blu-ray players, and Blu-ray home theater systems. Owners of select devices will be able to access Blockbuster's range of on-demand content available for rent or purchase.

The service allows customers to view a movie from Blockbuster.com, while family members can watch the same title at home in different rooms or at different times. Users can search and browse content using an on-screen menu system, with features such as trailers, ratings, descriptions, and more.

The Blockbuster library will be available on Samsung's Series 650 or higher LCD and plasma TVs; Series 7000 or higher LED TVs; BD-P1600, BD-P3600, BD-P4600 Blu-ray players; and the HT-BD1250, HT-BD3253, HT-BD7200, and HT-BD8200 Blu-ray integrated home theater systems via a firmware upgrade.

Move rental prices range from $2.99 to $3.99, while purchases range in price from $7.99 to $19.99.
