A Sneak Preview Of LG's BD300 Netflix Blu-ray Player

BD300-Home-Menu_540x303(2).jpgLG has given a sneak peak of its BD300 Netflix-streaming Blu-ray player to a select few in Manhattan and now we know exactly what to expect when it's available this fall. In a nutshell, using the BD300 is pretty well identical to using Netflix's own Roku player. Any Netflix subscriber with the $8.99/month plan or better can stream movies from the 12000-title-strong Watch Now library just by adding the LG Blu-ray player to their account. Simple and fast. Other networked features include music and photo streaming via PC's or any other device that will connect to the BD300's USB port

The BD300 will be fully BD Live, aka Profile 2.0, compliant so you'll be able to access online and interactive content on compatible Blu-ray discs. No one is clear on the player's audio capabilities so far though. Dolby TrueHD is listed on the BD300's spec sheet but there's no mention of DTS-HD Master Audio, although the two tend to go hand in hand.

Sounds good, but with an "under $500" price tag, probably meaning something like $499.99, don't expect LG to sell the BD300 like hotcakes until the price comes down.
