Netflix at CES 2010: Movie Streaming on new Blu-ray Players

It is going to be a good year for Netflix going by what we have seen at CES 2010. The online streaming service announced yesterday that they are to partner with Funai, Panasonic, Sanyo, Sharp and Toshiba to offer Blu-ray players and TVs capable of streaming content from Netflix.

This latest agreement is just the latest partnership with consumer electronic companies; Insignia, LG Electronics, Samsung and Sony already offer this same service. According to Engadget, Philips is to offer Netflix content on three new Blu-ray players, the BDP5110, BDP5320 and the BDP7320

The 5110 will be available soon and will cost $169, the BDP5320 is a higher end model complete with Wi-Fi dongle, and the cost is $249. The top of the range BDP7320 will come with DLNA access, allowing you to stream video content from devices connected to your network.

The two models being released by Sharp are the BD-HP70U and BD-HP24, neither model has unique features so will have to hope that their price will persuade consumers to purchase them.
