Netflix Coming Soon To Your Remote Control

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.
