Does Not Work with MLB.TV

Jeff, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
2 April 2011
  • Summary: This BluRay gives great picture, works with Vudu and Netflix reasonably well, but does not work with MLB.TV as advertised. As a leading feature of this product was MLB.TV integration, I expected to be able to watch MLB games on this player but it does not work at all. Therefore, I cannot recommend this player.

Does not reliably play Blu-ray disks!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
4 January 2011
  • Summary: Almost every Blu-ray disk that we have tried to play in this player skips, including "Toy Story 3", "Inception", and "Despicable Me". Most often, the movie plays fine for the first 75% of the movie, then it will suddenly start skipping. It seems to skip to the next "chapter". It might do this several times for the remainder of the movie. And yes, I have installed the most current firmware. When it works, the picture quality is excellent.
