LG Blu-ray Disc Players to Stream Content From CinemaNow, YouTube and Netflix

LG Electronics has expanded th

Available on new LG Network Blu-ray Disc Players in the first half of 2009, these new services complement LG's instant streaming from Netflix and Blu-ray capabilities.

CinemaNow and YouTube will be available in LG's 2009 line of Network Blu-ray Disc players to be unveiled next week at the 2009 International CES.

"As millions of U.S. consumers view and download movies or TV shows through the Internet, they are demanding easier ways to access content and more home entertainment options," said Tim Alessi, director of product development, LG Electronics USA.

CinemaNow became the first Web site to offer Pay-Per-View movies from major studios and the first broadband distributor of high definition (HD) content. Collaborating with CinemaNow will enable LG to offer consumers access to more than 14,000 titles from the major movie studios, broadcast and cable television shows, more than 250 independent film titles and music videos from all major labels. Key benefits include the capability to browse the entire CinemaNow premium content catalog, including latest Hollywood hits, instantly stream content to enjoy on compatible devices, and access and watch movies purchased from other CinemaNow-powered stores.

LG's alliance with YouTube will allow consumers to stream millions of Web videos directly from the Internet to an LG Network Blu-ray Player for viewing on their television (without a personal computer).

LG's first Network Blu-ray Disc Player (BD300) delivers a growing number of Netflix titles in high-definition (HD). This new access to high-definition streaming content enhances the existing standard-definition streaming service that LG and Netflix first brought to consumers in 2008.

Netflix members owning LG's future Blu-ray network players pay one monthly subscription for unlimited DVD rental and unlimited streaming.
