It is not just Sony that seems to have struck a golden deal with Netflix, but even LG seems to have gotten on the same bandwagon and in case of LG, it is sooner than later. While most HDTV set owners believed that Sony would be the first company to offer TV sets that could instantly and automatically connect and stream feed from Netflix, LG has beaten them to the punch by bringing out new 47-inch LCD HDTV and the 50-inch plasma HDTV PS80 that already are capable of doing the exact same.
These LG behemoths have full HD 1080p resolution and you can just queue up your favorite movies and television shows from Netflix and then watch them at your convenience. The new TVs need no external additional device to access this feature and they even can double up as a computer with HD display. It seems at this point that LG has partnered with Yahoo! to avail the feature and with more companies likely to jump in, it is the consumer who will finally profit with loads of entertainment options.
