Samsung bring Netflix and Pandora services to Blu-ray video players
Posted on 24-Oct-2008 15:21 | Tags Filed under: News



Samsung Electronics America is making Netflix and Pandora services available for its Blu-ray players in the USA. Enhancing the functionality of its BD-P2500 and BD-P2550 devices, users can now instantly access a wealth of online entertainment.

Going well beyond simply spinning ordinary Blu-ray discs, these Samsung Blu-ray players can instantly stream movies and television episodes online from Netflix and music powered by Pandora.

Consumer can upload the value-added services at no additional cost to the players via a feature upgrade. Current Samsung Blu-ray device owners will be able to instantly watch from a growing library of more than 12,000 movies and television episodes from Netflix (BD-P2500/BD-P2550) and music from Pandora (BD-P2550).

"Internet radio is rapidly spreading beyond the desktop computer to every room of the house" said Tim Westergren, Pandora’s founder. "We're honored and excited that Samsung selected Pandora’s personalized radio as the radio of choice for their Blu-Ray player customers.”

"In its new form, Samsung Blu-ray players become the ultimate content delivery box, combining on-demand access to movies and music as well as jaw-dropping Full HD viewing," said Reid Sullivan, Vice President of Marketing, Audio/Video & Imaging at Samsung Electronics America. "Samsung presents a new value proposition for Blu-ray players by positioning it as a portal to a wide world of engaging digital content, be it Blu-ray discs, Pandora’s online music library or movies from Netflix."

From the players’ welcome screen, Netflix members click on the Netflix icon to reach their instant Queue (the list of movies they have selected on the PC to watch instantly). After choosing the title they want to watch, they simply push play and the movie should start in as little as 30 seconds.
