Is this planned, and if so, when?

Thanks,

Hi,

Just an FYI, but I just bought a Samsung 8000 series today and was calling Samsung for some questions (example, you NEED LinkStick for Wireless connectivity; you can't use *any* USB-enabled Wireless adapter). There will be a total of 37 widgets come the beginning of June, I was told, and Netflix *WAS* on the widget list, though she (the operator) did not have a full list handy (she told me she was advised "through training" and she remembered Netflix being on there for a June release).

Samsung Widgets Are Pathetic

In reply to: Confirmed Netflix

There isn't a single one that is of any use. The only one that they should have (Netflix), they don't seem to be able to get their act together to license. It seemed like a good idea at the time to get a tv that could be hooked up to the internet and maybe some day it will be but so far I have to say the internet function on my LED 8000 model is a major disappointment. The good news is that the tv is terrific.

Pathetic is too complimentary

You hit the nail on the head three times. 1.) Samsung widgets are a waste of time. If somebody is paying Samsung a licensing fee they are wasting their money. 2) If and when Samsung wises up and puts a Netflix widget on it could be a winner if Samsung programmers don't somehow screw it up. And, 3) Yes, the tv is excellent, but I have warned people not to buy it if they are looking for internet entertainment with it. Sorry about that, Samsung.

usarp,

Perhaps... but this question was asked in 2009 with the "B" models.

Things have changed since, and this year, Netflix is on the UNxxC8000 models.

It's not backwards compatible, so Samsung trumpeted what a great internet product it had (which stinks) and wants credit for supposedly fixing it for the people smart enough not to believe them but to wait? On that basis, Samsung shouldn't make a single sale of a new product. I know it never will again from me.

Remember Netflix writes the app.

In reply to: Yeah, But

Given your ire you would not patronize Netflix for their non-delivery as well?

You've Got to Be Kidding

In reply to: Yeah, But

I respect that you are not even trying to defend the fact that Samsung's two year old top of the line product doesn't work but unless you have some kind of program where I can exchange it for a newer model that does work, I can't think of any reason that I and anyone else who fell for this shoddy deception shouldn't be grossly insulted. Aren't there any companies out there who do not put out a product unless it actually works?

It really doesn't work!
