LDS has one of the largest -- if not the largest -- genealogy catalogs in the World.  Ancestry.com paid LDS $1B for the privilege to digitalize and use the catalog.  Process is ongoing as the catalog is extensive and added to all the time.  Probably this is where the new online films are coming from.

 I don’t know when this started, but
 many, many, many of the LDS films are actually now viewable
 on-line at a local Family History Library.  Fortunately
 for me I am about 10 minutes away from one.  Clicking
 on the LDS link on the SGGEE parishes page takes you to the
 LDS catalog page for those films.  A little camera icon
 means the film is available for on-line viewing at a library
 and a reel icon means it is available for microfilm
 rental.  I don’t know if this viewing is possible at
 all libraries across the world or just in the USA. 
 It’s so nice to be able to download a copy of a record
 directly as well as no rental fee or wait time.
