LG To Start Offering Google Play Movies + New TV Service
Owners of an LG Smart TV with Web OS as well as the older Netcast application system will be able to get access to the new content that includes recently released movies, classics independent films and cult favourites in both HD and SD formats.
With Google Play Movies & TV, viewers can rent or buy from among thousands of movies or TV shows from major Hollywood studios. And because all the content originates from the cloud, viewers can begin watching on their LG Smart TVs at home and resume watching from where they left off the next day on their smartphone, tablet or PC.
“The smart TV market is growing rapidly and with that comes a tremendous demand for fresher, higher-quality content,” said In-kyu Lee, senior vice president and head of the TV and monitor division at the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company.
“Meeting this demand is LG’s highest priority, matched only by our desire to provide the best possible viewing experience on our TV products with the webOS platform. Our close partnership with Google will go a long way toward fulfilling the high expectations of LG Smart TV owners.”
Google Play Movies will become available starting this month on LG Smart TVs in Australia.
