LG has announced some new "network entertainment options" for its Network Blu-ray disc players through new deals with CinemaNow and YouTube.

Available in the States on new LG's Network Blu-ray players in the first half of 2009, these new services add to LG's already offered instant streaming from Netflix.

CinemaNow offers pay-per-view movies including high definition content and will offer access to more than 14,000 titles from the major movie studios, broadcast and cable television shows.

The YouTube team-up will allow consumers to instantly stream millions of web videos directly from the Internet to an LG Network Blu-ray player for viewing on their television without a PC.

LG's Network Blu-ray disc players will be officially revealed at CES - Pocket-lint will bring you more from the show.
