One of the most recent players, the LG BD370, not only plays both Blu-Ray and DVD discs, but also allows users to access YouTube footage through a built-in ethernet connection.
“In an Australian first, BD370 users can stream online media from YouTube with high-speed internet, allowing access to a wide range of videos, all search enabled through the remote control.
“Stylish, high-end design catches the eye and maintains elegance in the home. The centre panel light changes colour to indicate the format currently in use; BD Live titles glow blue, changing to orange for DVDs and violet for CDs.”
