Best Buy and Netflix announced this week that the new Insignia Advanced Series Blu-ray Player NS-WBRDVD and the Insignia Connected Blu-ray Player NS-BRDVD3 (photo) are streaming Netflix movie rentals.
Both new Insignia Blu-ray players are Internet ready, giving Netflix members on an unlimited plan access to a growing library to watch instantly on their TV. The Insignia Advanced Series model uses built-in Wi-Fi to connect to the Internet while the Insignia Connected player uses an Ethernet connection.
Netflix streaming is gaining more and more distribution on Blu-ray players, TVs and other boxes. It is a genius strategy from Netflix to strike all these partnerships with consumer electronics makers.
The Insignia NS-BRDVD3 Blu-ray Disc player supports 1080p output and BD-Live content along with NetFlix streaming.
Other features include upconverting, Dolby TrueHD decoder, HDMi, USB port and Ethernet port.
The Insignia NS-BRDVD3 connected Blu-ray player sells for only $149.99 on the Best Buy site.
The Insignia NS-WBRDVD with Wifi capability competes with the great LG BD 390 Blu-ray player (I just got that one). The prices have already dropped on both players. The Insignia NS-WBRDVD sells for $199.99, while the LG BD390 is currently down to $237.98 on Amazon.com.
Features of the Insignia NS-WBRDVD include DVD upscaler, Dolby True HD and DTS Master decoder, USB, Wifi, Ethernet port, Netflix streaming and BD-Live.
Internet ready Blu-ray players with movie rental streaming from Netflix are going to be hitting $100 on Black Friday, if the prices continue to drop as they have already. The LG BD 370 was already down to $150 a week ago.
