Samsung Adds YouTube to its Blu-ray Players


Joining the growing number of manufacturers adding value-added streaming internet content to their Blu-ray players, such as Panasonic and LG, Samsung Electronics America, Inc. today announced the availability of YouTube video services on select Samsung Blu-ray Disc players. Owners of Samsung’s BD-P1600, BD-P3600, or BD-P4600 Blu-ray players will be able to enjoy YouTube videos in the comfort of their living rooms by upgrading the firmware on their players free of charge.

Using the service requires the players be connected to a wired or wireless broadband network via the players’ built-in Ethernet port. Users can then simply access the YouTube service from the push of a button on the remote from the main screen. Additionally, viewers can search videos from various categories via an on-screen keypad similar to a mobile phone.

Samsung will have the new service on display publicly at their booth (#925)  at the CEDIA EXPO 2009, taking place between September 10 – 13 in Atlanta, Georgia.
