lG is the latest of the world brand names to get behind Freesat TV from the BBC and ITV in the UK.
Netflix streaming software enabled will mean VIDEO ON DEMAND BUILT-IN we have been reporting this on this Blog
long before anyone else, this also means it will have Broadband built-in which in turn means you the viewer can fully interact
with ones TV set and have complete control over what you want to watch from the remote.
Instantly streaming content from Netflix to the LG HDTVs will rely on a broadband connection.
This new type of HDTV sets will be available in both LCD and PLASMA forms and are due out in the Spring of 2009.
This will put intense pressure on Panasonic to cut its prices on their Freesat enabled TVs before the LGs release dates.
This is also great new for Freesat in general and may put downward pressures to cut prices from Freesat's satellite competition.
