Samsung is equipping its Blu-ray DVD players so they can retrieve movies and TV shows from Netflix's Internet streaming service. The companies have announced they will include the ability to handle streaming capability in a variety of Samsung's home entertainment products.

It's not the first time Netflix has arranged to send its online content through Blu-ray DVD players. LG Electronics began selling a $350 Blu-ray player with Netflix streaming earlier this month.

Netflix has nearly 9 million subscribers, most of whom get their rentals through the mail. But Netflix has been rolling out a service that beams movies and TV shows over high-speed Internet connections, rather than have customers wait for them to show up in snail mail.
