Insignia outs two BD players with Netflix support

Netflix this week partnered with Best Buy to endow the retailer's Insignia-brand Blu-ray players with the ability to stream Netflix movies and TV shows. This partnership has resulted in two Insignia Blu-ray players with this capability, including the Insignia Advanced Series Blu-ray Player (NS-WBRDVD) and the Insignia Connected Blu-ray Player (NS-BRDVD3). Either is Internet ready, though the former uses a Wi-Fi connection for access, with the latter relying on a wired Ethernet connection. Both are Energy Star certified and feature Dolby TrueHD sound capability. Either can upconvert standard DVDs.

Using the Insignia players, Netflix members can manage their instant queue, including browsing titles by genre from personalized lists, adding movies to their playlist or watching movies. Viewers have the ability to stop movies, rewind or fast forward.

The NS-WBRDVD is priced at $250, while the NS-BRDVD3 costs $180.
