Netflix, LG to offer movie set-top box

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 1:24 am

DVD rental company Netflix Inc on Wednesday said it was developing a set-top box with LG Electronics Inc to let subscribers watch movies streamed directly from the Web to their TVs.

Netflix, with about 7 million subscribers, has for quite some time said it was looking to extend its Internet movie delivery feature — which lets subscribers play back about 6,000 films and TV episodes on PCs — to the television.

The leader of online DVD rentals will be entering an increasingly crowded and confusing market when it rolls out the new device via an LG-networked player sometime in the second half of 2008.
