LG Smart TV Bringing Third Party Apps To Your Television

Posted Jan 5, 2011

LG Electronics announced today that they are launching a new service called Smart TV. Smart TV has apps that you can install on your television set from companies like Vudu, Hulu, and Netflix. The Smart TV is going to be controlled by the LG “Magic Motion” remote control. The remote control has a gyroscope to detect the shaking. It will also work for gaming. If you don’t want one of the LG TVs that work with the Smart TV, LG Electronics will also be selling a set-top box called the Smart TV Upgrader. The LG Smart TV is expected to be released at the second quarter of the year, but the price is unknown so far. [Wired]
