LG Electronics will introduce broadband HDTVs with the instant-access, high-definition (HD) movie service from VUDU. The on-demand movies will be available on LG’s LH50 1080p LCD series and PS80 Plasma 1080p series with "NetCast Entertainment Access," beginning next month.
With VUDU, consumers can instantly buy or rent from a library of movies and TV titles, including more than 2,000 HD movies – with no monthly fees and without having to buy, install, or connect any additional hardware. With VUDU’s streaming movie service viewers can fast forward, rewind and browse.
With LG’s NetCast Entertainment Access, consumers have access to streaming movies, TV shows and web videos through an Ethernet connection. The new LG HDTVs, ranging in screen size from 42-60 inch, also include access to content from Netflix and Yahoo! Widgets.
