LG Network Blu-ray Players and Home Theater Systems Announced

New Devices Deliver Superior Image Quality, Enhanced Entertainment Options through New Content Alliances

Building on the success of its BD300 Network Blu-ray Disc Player — the world’s first Blu-ray player to instantly stream Netflix — LG Electronics introduced two new Network Blu-ray Disc Players (BD370, BD390) and three Network Blu-ray Disc Home Theater Systems (LHB954, LHB977, LHB979) with expanded content options and wireless connectivity.

Unparalleled Access to Streaming Entertainment
The 2009 Network Blu-ray Disc Players with LG’s “NetCast™ Entertainment Access” offer consumers a virtually endless array of content-on-demand options through new alliances with CinemaNow and YouTube, as well as access to the growing library of HD streaming titles from Netflix. Through its alliance with CinemaNow, the first Web site to offer Pay-Per-View movies from major studios and the first broadband distributor of high definition (HD) content, LG offers 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*.

Offering unlimited access to online content, LG’s alliance with YouTube will allow consumers to instantly 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)*. Easy searching, thumbnail previews and multiple screen size viewing options will allow consumers to enjoy endless video content from current events to viral videos at the touch of a button.

“With LG, consumers do not have to compromise flexible entertainment options for exceptional sound and picture quality,” said Peter Reiner, senior vice president, marketing and strategy, LG Electronics USA, Inc. “Whether it’s through new content or a wireless connection, our new network Blu-ray disc players and home theater systems allow consumers to personalize their entertainment experience.”

Advanced Video-Audio Entertainment Experience
