LG announces Blu-Ray box with Netflix streaming, too

Oh, this is nice.


It's the LG BD300 Network Blu-Ray Disc Player and it's the link between the old way of watching films and the new. Blu-Ray may be crisper and clearer than traditional DVDs, but there's no doubt that streaming video content is the future, especially for companies like Netflix, where people pay to borrow a product. With the LG BD300, you will be able to stream whatever you rent from Netflix onto your TV. I think this is a fabulous evolution of Netflix services, and should ensure that you get to see that hot film you've been waiting for, instead of getting that backlist crap you only listed to make up the numbers. Plus it'll place less strain on their business and on the postal service, and thus the environment: win-win-win.

Existing Netflix users won't have to pay any extra for the service, but they will have to shell out for the hardware, and no prices are yet available. Crave reports that rumors are it will be well under $500, though.
