I have the BD300 and it streams YouTube. The BD390 will have built in wireless.

Does it also support the new 720p standard on YouTube?

It'll be good when the majority of blu-ray players have built in wireless. It's very inconvenient to have to plug an ethernet cable into your blu-ray player.

I agree but it would sure be nice if I had ethernet wired into each room. It took me forever but I finally got an ethernet to wireless adapter to work with my BD300. Unfortunately my girlfriend cancelled her Netflix account before I got it working, I wanted to use it to stream Netflix HD to see how it compares to other HD sources. It took me 6 months to get her new laptop working properly with the wireless internet at her house. The BD300 wireless adapter seems to be working fine but without HD to stream, I really can't know much. Needless to say my girlfiend isn't too impressed with my ability as her network guru, and to be honest, neither am I. The PS3 connected and has worked great with it from the first day I hooked it up and I got my laptop working great the first day. Hard wired would have been so much easier and I would have taken so much less abuse about having it all goofed up for so long.

Wired also gets you more speed and more security too. Sadly my wife does not think too highly of wires in the house so I have to use wireless.

I just never realized that YouTube was THAT important to people.

I'm not overly concerned with speed when it comes to my Blu-Ray player. I think wireless should be sufficient for anything a Blu-Ray player will need. It certainly works well with my PS3.

For firmware updates, it doesn't seem to make any difference at all. I don't know about streaming Netflix HD yet since I haven't done it yes but the new LG Netflix Blu-ray player uses built in wireless so it must be fast enough.

Sadly Netflix is still not available in Europe, otherwise I could use it on my Xbox 360.

Yes, I just noticed I failed to answer this question.

I understand these players also stream Netflix HD although I don't have a Netflix account to confirm that. The YouTube streaming does work well with simple search and several categories to sort through. I have really used YouTube streaming a lot more than I thought I would. I need to find a way to list only HD videos, maybe a search with (HD), I guess I will start with that. Oh, and just because the YouTube video is in HD, don't expect it to look all that great, it usually won't look like much.

I sure don't consider it important but it is entertaining at times.
