If your electronics don’t stream content directly to your living room, they’re just plain lazy.
TV, Blu-ray player, receiver and media server manufacturers are pairing up with content providers to cut out the middleman — that being the consumer who actually has to go to a store to get movies or music.
Manufacturers at CEDIA Expo 2009 announced partnerships with Netflix and Vudu, showing off the fruits of their collaborations.
Vudu had a huge presence in LG’s booth. LG kicked off the show by announcing that it’s BD390 Wireless Network Blu-ray Player now has Vudu access.
Vudu, along with Netflix, YouTube and Yahoo Widgets, can also be streamed via LG’s line of Broadband TVs. The following components represent just a sample of the digital streaming products at CEDIA Expo 2009.
