Samsung follows up on last year's Blu-ray players with HD recorders and releases three new models called BD-E8300, BD-E8500 and BD-E8900. The new players can record TV shows and stream TV channels to your smartphone or tablet. The BD-E8900 variant comes with a 1 TB hard drive.

We recently featured LG's new HDD recorders but Samsung also has some new Blu-ray HHD recorders coming out in Europe.

The three new models are called BD-E8300, BD-E8500 and BD-E8900 and share many similarities. All three support SmartView which allows you to stream TV channels from the player to a smartphone or tablet. It is also possible to watch two different shows on the two screens.

All three players have built-in Blu-ray that supports both 2D and 3D discs, as well as DVD movies and music CDs. Users can also connect a USB device in one of the two USB slots. Most formats are supported, including DivX, avi and mkv. Lastly, Samsung mentions DLNA streaming that allow users to stream video, music and pictures onto the TV screen from other devices in the home.

The players have built-in dual tuners. BD-E8300 comes with a 320 GB capacity, BD-E8500 has 500 GB capacity and BD-E8900 has 1 TB capacity. The 1 TB hard drive can store up to approximately 102 hours of high-quality HD content or 205 hours in SD quality, Samsung says. Besides the capacity numbers, the three players are identical.
