Your new TV is going HD. Building on its Weather & Info TV Refrigerator, LG Electronics will soon be launching its high-definition television (HDTV) Refrigerator.

The LG HDTV Refrigerator is a side-by-side model that incorporates LG’s fifth-generation ATSC-QAM-NTSC digital television tuner to deliver digital broadcast and unscrambled cable images to the refrigerator’s 15-inch high-definition LCD television screen, the company says.

In addition to a remote-controlled, cable-ready, high-definition LCD screen and FM radio on the right door, the unit includes a DVD connection on top of the unit. The left door also includes a four-inch Weather & Info Center LCD display located above the ice and water dispenser.

Homeowners will need to look no further than their kitchen fridge for:

  • Weather forecasts: The LG unit delivers personalized weather forecasts based on a consumer’s geographic area, along with the forecast for four surrounding cities, via a wireless pager network;
  • Recipe bank: The refrigerator’s built-in recipe bank can help turn anyone into a chef with 100 pre-loaded recipes from the Culinary Institute of America; food categories include appetizers, soups, salads, meat/poultry, seafood, vegetarian, side dishes and dessert;
  • Digital photo album: Users can upload their personal photo album via a USB port in the dispenser area and select a slide show mode to display favorite pictures;
  • Organization tools: Easily keep up with important items with these helpful functions including date/time clock, calendar with anniversary alarm and more

Other highlights of the LG HDTV Refrigerator include a child lock function, room temperature display, digital user manual, and product controls and information.

The LG HDTV Refrigerator also uses LG’s SpacePlus Ice System, which makes ice directly on the door, as opposed to on the top of the freezer section, helping to free up storage capacity within the freezer. The icemaker also has a custom cube option and a removable bin.

The refrigerator is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2007, model LSC27990TT, at an MSRP of $3,999. Visit for more information.
