Yes, it is necessary to register with the LG Smart TV Apps Store, or Premium Apps. It is also necessary to have an account established with Netflix. If you have additional questions about this setup, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
I’ve latest firmware and here is the answer. You may not like it so. Yes, you can stream, but… 1. You will need DLNA player. 2. Very few formats are supported. For example I’ve a few mkv files and it cannot play any of them, but LG web site claims it can. It also cannot play DivX. At least in either case I didn’t find any one that it can play. 3. As another user answered, it cannot pause or rewind anything that it streams. 4. I’ve last year model LG BD670 and it can play and pause all files that I gave to it. It also can find and stream from shared drive – no DLNA is needed. 5. The minor advantage of BP620 is in playing VOB files. Everything else close to disaster in comparison to BD670, which is not perfect either.
You can but you cannot Pause your movies. The player has a Great Picture and fast menus but I discovered I could not Pause any files except .mp4's. My other player works just fine. LG has a glitch in their Firmware on these New units and only tell you that its your computer that is at Fault when the problem is the player. So to answer your Question YES you can stream movies but enabling DLNA on y our PC does not work you have to install their unstable Nero Software. I suggest a Player that is specific to Media or a BD570 which works with DLNA or UPnP
This blu-ray player is DLNA ready. But I can not tell you yes or no. Due to the fact that I do not know what type of program your using to with it. Please contact LG's Customer Service team at www.LGusa.com/support for assistance troubleshooting.
Just to make clear what LGJoel stated, this means that though this player does play with wireless-n; it will not communicate with your network if your network is set to 5ghz.
I found this out the hard way and it's pretty unfortunate for my home as we use the 5ghz band for our n-network. I had to buy another router just to get thing thing on my network.
Calling a product certified n but in the end it's only capable of communicating on the 2.5ghz spectrum is misleading. Users of n-networks use it for the faster speeds over g-networks; the faster speeds are only achievable in the 5ghz spectrum.

This player has an IEEE 802.11b/g/n (2.4GHz band) internal antenna.
I currently have a HDMI cable connecting my TV and also a optical cord connecting my speakers. Currently sound is coming both from the TV AND the speakers (optical). How can i set it so sound only comes out of optical?
The OPTICAL and HDMI audio signals are both digital audio signals. There is no setting available to limit the audio signal to only one audio output. It is therefore recommended, in this situation, to simply MUTE the TV if you choose to use the external speaker system.
We appreciate your interest in this BluRay player. The NETWORK menu has a section specifically for Netflix content. This allows an option to DEACTIVATE NETFLIX. Once this has been done, you can set up Netflix with your new account.
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this player. All that should be required, for proper operation, is some audio/video connection from the player to the television, as well as the proper input selection on the TV to match. If this does not work already, then additional information would be needed in order to determine what might be causing the problem. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for assistance in this matter.
To alter or arrange the icons, use the MY APPS tab to edit their positions. To add a Premium App on the MY APPS list, go to the PREMIUM panel and press the GREEN button. Select the app you wish and select the ADD TO MY APPS button on the screen. If you have additional questions, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
Are you using an HDMI cable for the connection? It needs to be the newer high speed 1.4 version HDMI cable for many 3D Blu-Ray players. If it says the cable has ethernet in it, then it is version 1.4.

We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this player. Check the settings on the TV, to ensure that the 3D settings are active. It may also be recommended to upgrade your HDMI cable to the latest version available, to make sure it can process the bandwidth required for 3D content. If you have additional questions, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
Why won't my BP620 play Hulu Plus movies without buffering every 30 seconds?
I can play Hulu on my computer with no problem, but when I try and play it on my new BP620 it buffers every 30 to 45 seconds. It says right on the box that it has hulu plus, netflix, vudu ect. but it buffers all of them! I checked for updates, but it said they were all up-to-dates! What is wrong?
Typically, a computer can use its Random Access Memory or even some Hard Disk Drive space to assist with buffering requirements. Also, if the network traffic is high, this can cause more restriction to the content by the other data users. You may try connecting a USB Flash Drive to the USB port on the player. This may add some additional drive space and allow more data to be stored. If this does not resolve the matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
I have connected it to both G and N without issue.

We appreciate your interest in this player. According to the specifications listed on page 65 of the Owner’s Manual, the network jack on this unit is a 10/100 Mb connection, with an IEEE 802.11 b/g/n integrated module, which operates on the 2.4GHz bandwidth.
Why is my bp620 is no longer "seeing" my wireless network?
My player will not connect to my router. The player is not even picking up wireless networks in the area. It says it sees a network named 0: 0: 0: 0: 0: 0:, but no other devices in my home see this network, and it is not the name of my home network. I've tried unplugging the router and restarting it. Is there a way to reset something on the blu-ray? What else can I try?
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this BluRay player. Press the HOME button and select the OTHERS menu. Once here, scroll down to INITIALIZE and select FACTORY SET. If this does not resolve the matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to make proper service arrangements.
I apologize, but we do not have a television with a model number of LM62. However, if this is one of the LM6200 series of television, then we may be able to assist. Connect your BluRay player to the TV using the HDMI cable. Once this connection has been made, connect the TV to your audio system using the OPTICAL Digital Audio Output jack. If you have additional questions about this setup, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this service. We would be more than happy to assist in any manner possible. In order to do so, please provide the model number of this unit. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
Why doesnt my Blu Ray BP620 connect with the LAN internet?
The message that keeps coming up is saying please check if MAC address is registered with your Internet service provider? I don't understand why that would get in the way with the connection of the internet through the Ethernet cable connected to the Blu Ray.
We regret the difficulty you have experienced with this player and its connections. If the unit is connected with a standard Ethernet cable, it is recommended to make sure that the Wi-Fi settings have been deactivated in the player. If this does not resolve the matter, then it would be recommended to contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional assistance.
Hi! 1) I own an lg 3d (lw5400) which is capable of playing .mkv from usb but not with dts audio...if I buy this bp620 player, is it going to be able to play .mkv files with dts audio from my usb-hdd direct to my tv's speakers via HDMI comnnection? I mean does it decode/downgrade DTS to Dolby digital which is supported by my TV? 2) Also can this bp620 play .mkv 3d files from usb-hdd (either sbs or hbs) ?? Thanks!

I've been hoping to find a single unit that will play not just DVD and Blu-Ray discs but to play them for all regions. I've found some DVD players that cover all regions but I'd like a Blu-Ray player that plays discs from all regions. I can see that the BP620 plays PAL & NTSC but (and this may simply be due to my ignorance) I couldn't tell which regions it played.
Do you currently have or are you planning to produce a Blu-Ray player that plays both types of discs from all regions?
