Wi-Fi Blu-Ray players

Other than a PS3 or the Samsung BD-P4600 are there any other players that have Wi-Fi built in. I will also consider anything being released in the next month or two.

I don't think the PS3 has built-in wifi.

2 more that does -
LG BD390
Samsung BD-3600

Yes the PS3 definitely does, as I currently own one. I believe the early 20 Gig models did not.
I also see the Sony BDP-S560 is expeted to release in mid-july will have wi-fi. Anyone else know of any players with this capability?

Re: Wi-Fi Blu-Ray players

I had to jump through some technical hoops to get my Sony BDP-S350 BD-Live compliant via a wireless bridge (since my router was in another room). But it works, and as expected the BD content I've come across is completely underwhelmng.

Point being, it's certainly do-able for non-Wi-Fi compatible BD players. My bridge was less than $50.

As posted earlier; yes it does. You can also stream from your PC using this software or something similar.

I've got the Samsung BD-P3600. Wireless works great and easy to setup.
