lg smart tv google play

LG's smart TVs are about to get a whole load of new entertainment options.

The company has confirmed that its tellies will soon be able to access the Google Play Movies & TV service, which offers thousands of films and TV shows for streaming in both standard definition and high definition.

LG will put out a software update sometime this month that will add the service. So look out for it.

It will come to TVs that run LG's webOS platform, as well as older models running NetCast 4.0 and 4.5.

Play Movies & TV comes as standard with Android phones and tablets, and is available on the iPhone and iPad too.

LG's smart TVs already offer Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant Video. Google's service is another string to its bow.

All the TV shows and films are stored in the cloud, so you can pause what you're watching on your TV, and pick up later on your phone or tablet.

You can also watch anything you've previously bought through Play Movies & TV on your telly, so it could free something that's previously been confined to your phone.
