VUDU streams now available on LG BD390 player
LG on Wednesday announced that its BD390 Blu-ray player now supports video streams from VUDU. The service will allow users to view content such as movies and TV shows, with over 2,200 movies available in 1080p resolution paired with 5.1-channel audio. Other supported sources for streaming video include Netflix, Roxio, CinemaNow and YouTube.
LG's NetCast Entertainment Access service was recently announced for the company's HDTVs. Mitsubishi has followed a similar path with its VUDU-enbled Diamond televisions.
Along with the streaming capabilities, the BD390 also allows users to play DivX videos, at 1080p resolution, either burned to a DVD or stored on an external USB drive.
VUDU access for the BD390 will be available later this month following a free automatic upgrade.
