Blockbuster On Demand Makes its Way to Philips Blu-ray Players
Tags: Blockbuster, Philips (all tags)
You'll start seeing the service showing up on new Philips Blu-ray players right alongside CinemaNow and Netflix.
Philips isn't a name anyone associates with high-end in the home theater world, but their latest Blu-ray players are full of features. The BDP5320 and BDP7320 can handle 1080p resolution at 24 frames per second, Netflix streaming, and now downloads from Blockbuster On Demand.
"Philips Blu-ray players," says the company's own Todd Richardson, "combined with Blockbuster On Demand, offer consumers a one-of-a-kind home theatre experience with the added convenience of not having to run out to rent a movie."
The addition of Blockbuster's download service rounds out the new players, which already include CinemaNow and Netflix. It's a big move for Philips, but it might end up being bigger for Blockbuster, who is struggling to find a foothold in the new rental landscape.
