LG Electronics is extending its existing internet TV offering to bring consumers access to even more online applications and will enhance its current internet TV service, NetCast, with nine new applications including BBC iPlayer, movies on demand from Acetrax, Google Maps, Facebook, Twitter and an internet radio application for connected TV.

The updated NetCast service portfolio promises to make it even easier for viewers to be entertained from the comfort of their living room as these new applications bolster LG’s existing NetCast service, which already includes YouTube, Accuweather and Picasa.

The new online applications will be available to current owners of LG NetCast TVs. Owners will easily be able to update by connecting their LG NetCast TV to a broadband connection (via Ethernet or an LG wireless dongle) and pressing the NetCast button on the remote control where an automated update will take place.


Stephen Gater, Head of Marketing Home Entertainment, LG UK comments:

“People want to be entertained and the role of the traditional TV is changing. We’re committed to offering our customers a fully connected home and these new applications will further enhance our current offering.

“Having catch-up TV, movies, and social networking on demand will mean that people’s TVs are truly the hub of the living room. Services like Facebook, BBC iPlayer and Acetrax mean that people can now enjoy what they want, whenever they like.”

The nine new internet services will be available on selected LG NetCast TVs immediately and a minimum 2MB broadband speed is recommended for optimal viewing.
