LG Enhances Google TV Options
Google TV's lineup next year will be seen on LG electronics models in five screen sizes, including cinema screen. The extended LG TV offerings officially debut at CES in early 2013.
Two model series -- GA7900 and GA6400 -- will be introduced in 42-, 47-, 50-, 55- and 60-inch screen sizes.
The focus of Google's latest platform and LG's redesigned remote is allowing users to switch to a channel, station or site via voice control rather than clicking or scrolling. The quick PrimeTime guide is helpful when browsing LG Google's library of more than 1000,000 movies and TV episodes. The home dashboard also streamlines access to premium VOD, such as HBO Go, in addition to YouTube and various apps.
Havis Kwon, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company, called the LG Google TV lineup a "stellar user experience," which merges the latest Google TV platform with Smart TV technology.
3D TV functionality is also a plus for gamers. The OnLive app is preinstalled, which eliminates the need for a separate console. The app makes video games available from the cloud.
Smart TV devices include HDTVs, Blu-ray Disc Players and Network Home Theater Systems.
