Korea's LG Electronics said Tuesday that its latest Blu-ray player, when connected to the Internet, will be able to stream 14,000 movies and TV shows from Cinema Now and millions of videos from YouTube. The company already has a deal with Netflix allowing users of the Blu-ray player to receive any of 12,000 movies available on the rental company's website. "From Blu-ray to instant streaming from Netflix to CinemaNow and YouTube, LG is bridging the gap between packaged media and video-on-demand services to provide entertainment solutions for consumers' demand for content," LG's product-development director Tim Alessi said in a statement.
