LG Electronics are expected to launch their new broadband-enabled HDTVs on the UK market in the not-too-distant future.
The speculation has arisen after the electronics manufacturer's unveiling of the new sets at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
They are to be released imminently on the US market, with Europe seen as the next logical step for the product.
Those lucky enough to own the televisions stateside will be able to stream movies direct to their living rooms courtesy of a deal with Netflix.
According to Gadget Spy, the broadband-enabled HDTVs are set to cost £200 more than an LG HDTV that is not internet-ready when they eventually hit the shops.
Meanwhile, Yahoo! and Samsung have entered into an agreement to supply the latter's TVs with internet connectivity which will allow users to enjoy social media sites such as YouTube from the comfort of their armchairs.
