Netflix isn't much good to those of us outside the US?
Surely the point has to be that if we are paying a substantial premium for players & content then the least the producers of said players & content can do is ensure that we get something close to our money's worth?
I bought my BH200 on the understanding that it would allow me to have just one machine for both movie formats (so zero risk on the format war) and that it was highly spec'd (above the BH100 I could have bought, for instance) and able to work with the coming changes & improvements to the Blu-ray content.
Just like they said it would.
Of course the fact that they look like they are backing away from those pledges (if not actual out and out promises) gives me zero confidence that they will even continue to support the player with future firmware updates, updates which may well be necessary just to play the damned Blu-ray discs as they mess about making changes in the endless (IMO futile) 'war' with so-called 'pirates'.
Where will we be then?
I do know one thing, if that really is the future in store for us I will not be in a line ever again to buy an LG product.
I don't expect support in perpetuity but calling it a day after around 1yr seems mighty shabby to me.
