short-time reader, first time poster here.
I just bought the LG BP620 because I thought the samsung BD-D5250C was slow and barely responsive. Huge improvement in gui style/layout and responsiveness. But...I also bought it for mlb.tv, amazon VOD, hulu, mog, and 1080p netflix expected for lg 2012 blu-ray models:
Here is the list of channels that I thought would be coming:
Well, I guess that was the list for 2011 models. As some of you have confirmed, LG confirmed to me as well:
Mariangie: Hello Guest. Welcome to LG Electronics U.S.A. Support only. How may I provide you with excellent service today?
Guest: Hi, based on this weblink: "http://lgknowledgebase.com/kb/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=6510
" I was expecting to see MOG, mlb.tv, NHL, amazon VOD, netflix, and hulu. When I purchased the BP620 today and configured it, I found that MOG, MLB.tv, NHL, and amazon VOD are not currently available.
Guest: Will these channels be supported soon?
Mariangie: I would like to please place you on a brief hold while I research that for you, will that be alright?
Guest: that's fine thanks
Mariangie: Yes, the list that was in that link was for 2011 models
Mariangie: they 2012 model do not have the same content
Guest: i see, that link doesn't make that clear. So are any of those channels expected for the 2012 models?
Mariangie: Unfortunately not sir
Guest: thanks for your help
Now, I don't want to feel too 1st world problem sense of entitlement and I am aware 1080p is not yet on netflix for LG devices, but, I have to say I feel sorely misled here for all the other channels I wanted. Here I thought I would not have to get a roku device or an apple tv, but now it looks like I have to. I already have netflix and hulu on my xbox, so the big apps for me are MOG for 320kbps streaming, and mlb.tv for this summer; 1080p netflix is also something i'd like. Those are not there...and when I look at the specific channel websites - like nhl gamecenter, they advertise specifcally they are on the lg blu ray players....what is going on here?
