Internet streaming in a TV isn’t the foreign concept it was just a year ago. Want proof? An Internet connected, or “broadband,” set has made its way into the deal of the day!
The LG 47LH50 47-inch 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV is currently available from Frys for $999 with free shipping or in-store pickup. The next lowest authorized price is $1,278 shipped, and most authorized dealers are firmly in the $1,300 to $1,500 range for this set.
The LG Netcast feature currently supports streaming (via the included Ethernet connection) of content from Netflix Watch Instantly, CinemaNow, YouTube and Vudu.
Other features of the set include: 70,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, Energy Star compliance, Intelligent Sensor Mode, 2.7ms response, 4 HDMI 1.3 ports (3 rear, 1 side) and a side-located USB 2.0 port.
