Recently, DivX decided to join the rising market of online television. The company has just started a streaming video service that’s available on some of LG’s Blu-ray players. Utilizing the latest BD.8.31.317.C firmware update for the BD550/BD570/BD590 line, DivX TV gives you access to internet shows such as The Engadget Show and Revision3. You’ll also be offered the ability to make personalized channels of the type of content you’d prefer to see regularly.
It could be likely that DivX TV will turn up on some other electronics company’s product line in the future and LG Blu-ray players are just the beginning. Nonetheless, this is definitely more fuel to the fire as competition continues to heat up in the online TV and video streaming war.
