Early last month we told you about this beauty of a Blu-ray player by LG. Affordability, sexiness and the added joy of being able to stream Netflix downloads to your TV make it tough to deny the BG300. Well people, it just got a little bit tougher. LG’s Netflix-streaming Blu-ray player is now officially available for pre-order from Circuit City and the already-attractive price is $50 lower than we all thought. Scheduled to start shipping next Friday, the BD300 is up on Circuit City’s site for $349.99. It is also available for pre-order on Amazon’s site but at the original $400 price point. Aside from being $50 more expensive compared to the Circuit City price, Amazon’s BD300 page also states an estimated ship date between two and five months. Umm, yeah – we’re going to have to go with Circuit City on this one.
