LG Electronics today used the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas to announce two new HDTV series with NetCast Entertainment Access that offer instant streaming of movies, TV shows, video, and a Widget-based user experience via Ethernet connectivity directly to a television.


Through new alliances with Yahoo!, Netflix, and YouTube, consumers can instantly stream an almost endless catalogue of entertainment from viral videos and movies to photo sharing Web sites without the need of a separate PC.
"LG's new NetCast Entertainment Access capability broadens the user experience to include not only entertainment content, but also up-to-the minute news, stock information, weather updates, photo management and more by simply using the TV's remote control," says Peter Reiner, senior vice-president: marketing and strategy at LG Electronics USA.
"With these and future content relationships, LG continues to break the mold with innovative technologies designed to enhance consumers' viewing experience."
