New LG BD300 Blu-ray player can also stream from Netflix
Sure, all modern Blu-ray players that support Blu-ray Profile 2.0 include an Ethernet port for connect to the Internet but not not all of them can do what LG’s new BD300 can: receive streamed content from Netflix.
The new BD300 lets users stream TV shows and movies from Netflix directly to itself with titles able to begin playing within 30-seconds. The content is limited to standard definition, at least for the time being, but that may be something that LG could change via a firmware update if they wanted to.
Look for the DB300 to ship this fall. No price has been announced, but LG did say that it will be priced “well under $500” which is good news.
