 I never paid much attention to LG before I saw this Smart TV. I have to admit.  The average consumer out there is looking for simple convenient access to media without requiring any additional knowledge besides point and click? Well heres one solution.

LG Smart TV

The Smart TV platform provides access to movies, apps, videos and a web browser. The TVs use a point and click remote system à la Nintendo’s WiiMote and an optional QWERTY remote via an Android App.

The interface is populated with four main sections:
  • TV Live
  • Premium Content
  • TV Apps
  • Launch Bar
The Premium Content area is launching with the following services:
  • VUDU (ppv movies)
  • Netflix (subscription movies and TV shows)
  • YouTube (free)
  • CinemaNow (ppv movies and TV shows)
  • Hulu Plus (subscription movies and TV shows
  • Amazon Video on Demand (ppv movies and TV shows)
  • NHL Gamecenter (subscription)
  • NBA Game Live (subscription)
  • MLB.TV (subscription)
In addition to the premium content there are hundreds of apps to access other web based content, which from the screenshot above will include: Twit.tv, TED Talks, Revision3, etc.

Here's a closer look at the interface whose simplicity will be its appeal.

 Anyways in conclusion, for those of you who read my reviews. I generally don't recommend audiophiles or anyone looking to purchase high-end audio equipment to purchase DVD or Blu-ray Home Theater in a Box systems.  However, this product is designed for a certain consumer and I think it hits that target on the nail.  The LG LHB336 is a home theater system that supports all the current technology and provides a simple interface that looks pretty sleek.  Selling at a significantly reduced price already from the MSRP of $399, this is definitely a good buy.  You certainly will get some serious Bang for your Buck with this product.  If you want the integrated wi-fi go for the LHB536 below for about $100 more.
