Insignia BD players add Netflix streaming Best Buy has teamed up with Netflix this week to bring the rental company's streaming services to Insignia Blu-ray players.
The streaming video will be available on the Insignia Advanced Series BD player and the Insignia Connected BD Player. The players are already available for sale at $250 and $180 USD.

The more expensive model has Wi-Fi while the cheaper model is relegated to an Ethernet wired connection.

Best Buy exclusive brands CTO Nigel Waites said the new move “will appeal to Best Buy shoppers who seek unsurpassed convenience, selection and value in a Blu-ray disc player.”

Netflix streaming is available through a number of devices including PCs, Macs, LG and Samsung BD players, and Sony and Vizio HDTVs.

Insignia is the biggest pile of steaming crap out there. By far NOT worth investing in seeing that Insignia products were the absolute, indisputable leader in returns, exchanges and warranty repairs when I worked for BestBuy. I suggest anyone pop the extra 30%(ish) to get something that will last a reasonable period of time. Insignia also doesn't have the same warranty service that name brands like Panasonic, Samsung, etc have. Bestbuy will only repair Insignia and replace after several attempts of unsuccessful repairing.............the rest often have a replace warranty.

Really? We bought an Insignia LCD TV/DVD player just before Christmas last year for the kitchen. Use it daily (a lot) and it still works fine. I guess we may have an out-lier...or maybe we have a PO'd ex-employee?
