LG Netflix Blu-ray player gets upgraded to HD too Following the move recently made by Samsung, LG Electronic has announced that their LG BD300 Netflix Blu-ray player will receive a firmware upgrade as well that will bring HD streaming capabilities to the player.
The LG BD300 was the first standalone player that had built-in Netflix "Watch Instantly" capabilities but will become the third player to upgrade to HD capabilities.

Although not considered a standalone, the Microsoft Xbox 360 also has access to the HD instant streaming from Netflix. The content will be delivered in 720p, with standard definition audio, in an effort to cut down buffering time.

LG is proud to offer Netflix HD Instant Streaming for the BD300. As the first manufacturer to offer instant streaming on a Blu-ray player, LG continues to expand entertainment options for consumers as high-definition streaming and other online video content grow in the months and years ahead,
added Allan Jason, LG Electronics digital media VP.
