Because accessing Netflix isn’t easy enough, the video company announced earlier today that it has partnered with the makers of several devices to integrate a Netflix-specific button on remote controls.
The buttons will begin popping up this spring on certain new Blu-ray disc players from Dynex, Haier, Memorex, Panasonic, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, and Toshiba.
Remotes for internet-connected TVs from Sharp, Sony, and Toshiba will also get the Netflix treament, as will Boxee, Iomega and Roku set-top boxes.
Quoth the Netflix Chief Product Officer:
No more turning on the TV, going to a home screen and searching for the Netflix icon. With the Netflix one-click remote, it’s simply a matter of pushing the Netflix button to instantly watch any of the vast selection of TV shows and movies available to stream from Netflix.
