Posted Fri Dec 5, 2008 at 06:00 AM PST by Mike Attebery

Samsung has released a firmware update that will allow Netflix customers to stream movies through their Blu-ray players.

As previously reported, Samsung and Netflix settled on an arrangement similar to that announced by LG Electronics which will allow owners to take advantage of Netflix's "Watch Instantly" service at no additional cost.

After installing the update to their Samsung BD-P2550 and BD-P2500 players, Netflix account holders can visit the website to add standard definition movies and TV episodes to their instant queues. Those selections will then be available for viewing on their TVs via their Samsung players.
