The LG BD690 is an upper mid-cost Blu-ray player, a flagship offering. This 3D-enabled player shows Blu-ray content in 1080p, and upscales standard DVDs to near HD. The built-in WiFi capability of the BD690 gives you access to LG's SmartTV platform. SmartTV gives you access to a wide variety of content sites like Hulu Plus, CinemaNow, YouTube and many others. The simple SmartTV dashboard gives you four options: TV Live, Premium Content, TV Apps and Launch Bar. This Blu-ray player's MusicID feature allows you to play a song from a movie or TV show by pressing a button on the remote, then shows you artist, song name, and genre information, as well as album art. The BD690 is equipped with Dolby TrueHD Digital Plus sound, which offers up to 7.1 channels of high-quality audio. This player is capable of USB 2.0 playback, which means that you can view content from a variety of devices. The BD690 differs from the lower cost BD670 model in that it integrates a 250GB hard drive (for consolidating your digital media files into a single device), one of the only 3D-enabled Blu-ray players to do so. The USB port or Ethernet port can be used to import media. The LG BD690 Blu-ray player has DLNA capability, which allows you to access and stream content from other DLNA-enabled devices like PCs.
