Best Buy, Netflix Partner For Streaming Video

  • October 20, 2009
Best Buy says it is hooking up with Netflix, and will offer two different Insignia Blu-ray Disc Players that will allow Netflix members to instantly watch movies and TV episodes.

The movies will be streamed from Netflix over the Internet to their televisions, it says.

The new Insignia products, a Best Buy private-label brand, are priced at $249.99 and $179.99, and are on sale at Best Buy retail stores as well as its website. Both models are Internet ready, and Energy Star-certified.

While there are other Netflix instant devices available, including the Xbox 360 and products from Samsung, LG and Roku, the Minneapolis-based retailer says these will "appeal to Best Buy shoppers who seek unsurpassed convenience, selection and value in a Blu-ray disc player."--Sarah Mahoney
