2011 is certainly going to be the connected TV era. We’ve already seen Toshiba release information that they have developed ‘Autosteroscopic’ 3D television where viewers don’t have to wear 3D glasses, and YouView connecting users to 4oD, 5demand and other demand TV services all ready for CES 2011.
If you’re not aware already, CES is the Consumer Electronic Show which is one of the largest consumer technology tradeshow held in Vegas, USA. All of the technology big-wigs such as Microsoft, Samsung and LG come together and show off all of their technology goodness ready.
LG have now announced a pre-release before CES 2011 about their new Smart TV service. Connecting LG’s ‘ST-600’ to a normal TV will allow users to view content available from global providers, as well as shows and movies from all around the world.
Viewers will be connected to a whole array of LG Apps which is custom designed for us on TV’s.
LG’s CEO and President, Havis Kwon said: “The market for Smart TVs is set to take off this year, and the ST-600 offers a perfect entry point.”
“With the LG Smart TV Upgrader, we’re taking the excitement and convenience of Smart TV and adding in LG’s trademark ease-of-use because we see a significant audience who are interested but not interested enough to buy a whole new TV.”
