LG isn’t standing still with their Blu-ray disc players. Instead they are taking them to the next level for ’09, promising support for YouTube and CinemaNow videos on their next generation decks. Along with Netflix, which is now standard, owners can browse CinemaNow pay-per-view offerings and other stores powered by the service.
You’ll also be able to sort through YouTube’s immense catalog directly from the device. No word yet on price and we’re waiting for some more detailed specs, but hopefully we will know more in early January.
Do we really need Blu-Ray players just to digitally stream movies? Well, if you feel that you need it, we should have more info soon.
