Netflix wants set-top box
Does deal with LG
DVD rental company Netflix is building a set-top box with LG that will let subscribers watch movies streamed directly from the Web to their TVs.
The company has about seven million subscribers and has been talking about boosting its Internet delivery features. The gizmo that LG is designing will be embeded into its $799 dual-DVD player, which supports the competing Blu-ray and HD-DVD high-definition DVD formats.
Other details are pretty light at this point.
