The new LG line is designed to balance the look of LG’s latest generation of HDTVs. The BD 570 Blu-ray player looks slim and compact allowing you to easily blend your home entertainment system into any existing home decor.
Incorporating LG’s NetCast Entertainment Access, the LG BD570 offers convenient access to a virtually endless array of entertainment content options with a large variety of content options. NetCast Entertainment Access allows instant access to Netflix, CinemaNow, Vudu, YouTube and Pandora. LG is seeking new content partners like the Picasa photo service and forecasts from AccuWeather.
To take full advantage of the Blu-ray format, the BD 570 will also provide convenient access to BD Live, which offers a wide variety of content, such as movie scene extras, new previews and the ability to read synopses and rate movies. Also included are Bonus View features which provide picture-in-picture access to Blu-ray Disc special features, allowing you to toggle between your favorite movie scenes and bonus features on the disc. If you have a library full of DVD movies, the BD 570 will upscale it to 1080p for a near high definition viewing experience.
The BD 570 will feature the latest iteration of Netflix’s streaming software, which allows you to browse some titles that aren’t in your instant queue. No pricing or release date has been announced but it look poised to continue the success of the popular BD390. We will follow up with a full review as soon as this player is released.
