Consumers can now digitally stream movies from CinemaNow on Blu-ray Disc players from LG Electronics, the companies announced yesterday. Previewed at the CES in January, the LG Network Blu-ray Disc Players (models BD370 and BD390) and LG Network Home Theater Systems (models LHB953 and LHB977) are the first to incorporate the Roxio CinemaNow Service. Available now, LG’s BD370 and BD390 Network Blu-ray Disc Players offer consumers easy access to a vast array of movies and TV shows.
"With its Network Blu-ray Disc Players, LG is showing the future of home entertainment — a future in which the consumer is in complete control of an extensive library of instantly available premium video content," said Habiger. "Sonic will continue to work with premier CE device manufacturers like LG to meet consumers’ expectations for seamless access to high-quality video entertainment from any connected device."
Ahn said, "Our premium 2009 line of Blu-ray players with NetCast Entertainment Access is redefining the home entertainment experience and delivering solutions that match the new dynamic demands of consumers’ digital lifestyles. Roxio CinemaNow plays an important role in helping fulfill our goal to offer consumers fast, convenient access to a varied and almost endless catalogue of video entertainment."
The good part about this for movie buffs and those that can’t wait to see the latest title? CinemaNow titles will be available day and date to the lastest DVD releases. This is great if you don’t feel like running out to the store every Tuesday.
