Both LG and Samsung will offer HD Netflix streaming on select Blu-ray players in “early December” via firmware upgrades.

LG will offer HD Netflix streaming on its BD300, a Profile 1.1 player that supports 24Hz and 60Hz video refresh rates and next generation audio formats.

Samsung will offer HD Netflix streaming in 720p on its BD-P2500 and BD-P2550 Blu-ray Players.

When Samsung partnered with Netflix in October, the companies said “a range of [Samsung] home entertainment products” will follow suit and offer streaming of Netflix content.

Netflix currently has more than 300 HD titles that play with standard definition audio. The company also will discontinue HD DVD on December 15 and stream content directly to TiVo.
