LG punts 'out of the ordinary' wireless Blu-ray player

DivX HD and MKV playback, anyone?

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

LG has taken the wraps off its latest Blu-ray Disc player, a device the company claimed was not "ordinary", thanks to its Wi-Fi connectivity and ability to reach out to the internet for content.

LG BD750

The BD750 has DLNA support built in, so it can browse and play content stored on PCs, phones, Nas boxes and suchlike.

It also has LG's NetCast system - the same internet-on-your-telly technology that's appearing in the company's HD TVs.

The player can also play host to external USB hard drives or Flash sticks to play HD quality DivX and MKV movies, LG said.

All this plus the ability to play BDs too.

The BD750 is available now and retails for around £250. ®
