The UK based rental service, LOVEFiLM, has been negotiating its way into a wide range of products in the last year, particularly in its homeland as well as other parts of the world. It offers subscribers a superb variety of TV shows along with a huge range of movies, which can be streamed or sent to their home address via the post. Now it seems South Korean based electronics giant LG will be taking advantage of this service with their range of Smart TVs.
The Amazon owned LOVEFiLM confirmed the news of the partnership with LG when they announced their service would be making its debut on their new range of Smart TVs. The news was also confirmed at the other when LG announced all their future Smart TVs would include the LOVEFiLM Instant App, making access to the streaming service easy and a persuasive offer for those looking to invest in a new TV.
As TechRadar explains future owners of LG Smart TVs will now have instant access to a collection of more than 5000 TV shows and movies providing they are subscribed to the monthly paid LOVEFiLM service. It will also mean the owners can take advantage of the Nuance Dragon voice-recognition software, built into the new Magic Remote which the company showcased at CES earlier this month.
Despite LG’s dominance in the TV market, they are not the first company to snap up the LOVEFiLM services on their Smart TVs. However this deal will put them back in the high end for the features and services they have on offer from their products. A close rival to LOVEFiLM, Netflix also launched in the UK recently which forced Amazon to respond with a price cut to their service.
What do you think of these services? Are you pleased to see LOVEFiLM now available on LG Smart TVs?
