samsung ln52b750 widgets

Anyone know if the Netflix widget will become available for this model? I see Pandora, CBS, Accuweather, etc. but no Netflix as of 3/23/2010. It does seem to be available on the new 2010 C-Models.

glickh01,

I don't believe the Netflix widget will be available on the 2009 model Samsung televisions. However, the widget is available on all of the 2009 model Blu-Ray players. There are no plans that I'm aware of that will add Netflix to the 2009 LNxxBxxx or UNxxBxxxx models.

Surprising and disappointing given the internet@TV function of the B750 series as evidenced by the availability of other widgets: Pandora, Blockbuster, CBS, etc. A lot of us, myself included, purchase higher end Samsungs with the expectation that advanced functions (a.k.a. selling points) will continue to have use and support over time. Other companies seem to be better at this than Samsung right now. Please apss this along from a dedicated Samsung supporter!

Get rid of Blockbuster on 2009 Models

Why not get rid of Blockbuster and replace it with the Netflix widget? Blockbuster is going out of business soon anyway so I'm sure they wouldn't mind.

There shouldn't be any reason that we cannot use the Netflix widget unless Samsung agreed to an exclusive deal with Blockbuster. I just purchased a 52" 750 series LCD and am very dissapointed that this feature isn't offered through the @internet widgets.

Netflix and Blockbuster

I don't think it is some exclusive deal with Blockbuster. The 2010 C650 models seem to have both the Blockbuster and Netflix widgets. My issue is that having the internet@tv application on the B750 series should allow me to use all the Samsung widgets.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
