    CESENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Dec. 24, 2012 -- Building on the success of its Smart TVs with Google TV, LG Electronics (LG) is expanding its 2013 Google TV lineup to seven models in five screen sizes for 2013 - including premium models featuring LG's popular CINEMA SCREEN design, the company announced today.

    The extended LG Google TV lineup, which will be officially introduced at next month's 2013 International CES® in Las Vegas, encompasses two model series (GA7900 and GA6400) designed to deliver an outstandingly intuitive user experience, various sizes and new design to better meet consumers' expectations.

    Google's latest platform and LG's redesigned Magic Qwerty Remote work together to enhance the effectiveness of Voice Search and the PrimeTime quick guide. The updated Home Dashboard also adds to the user experience by offering convenient, streamlined access to premium video on-demand, such as HBO GO, content from YouTube and more apps*. Discovering exciting new content from the rich pool of choices available on LG Google TV has never been easier. Additionally, the premium models will incorporate LG's advanced CINEMA SCREEN design for an undeniably sleek and modern finish.

    "LG is committed to providing diverse home entertainment options that offer the most satisfying user experience and the latest LG Smart TVs with Google TV do just that," said Havis Kwon , President and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. "They deliver a stellar user experience by merging the latest Google TV platform with LG's proven Smart TV technology. The result is a comprehensive system that is groundbreaking in its simplicity."
    LG Google TV aims to redefine the user experience. The new Home Dashboard offers varied types of "cards" that act as folders to display apps and other content. The new "My Interest" Card can even display useful information including real-time weather and customizable news.

    The entire user interface can be navigated using the redesigned Magic Qwerty Remote, which combines a complete keyboard with the convenient benefits of the Magic Remote's point-and-click control. The enhanced natural language recognition incorporated in the revamped remote is a perfect match with Google's outstanding search functionality so that broadcast TV or Internet content can be found with only one vocal command. Consumers can use search terms like "romantic comedy" to get results. Consumers can also tell it to switch to a specific channel number, station or website with one voice command, eliminating extra scrolling and controller clicking. The overall voice-based capabilities multiply the effectiveness of the PrimeTime quick guide to provide an ultimate user experience and make browsing through the more than 100,000 available movies and TV episodes on LG Google TV a breeze.

    The LG Smart TV with Google TV offers superb connectivity options and can connect to a variety of devices wirelessly. The latest YouTube app update for Android, smart phones and tablets can be automatically paired with Google TV over the same home network via Wi-Fi, making it easy to send videos from your device to your TV with just the touch of one button. Gamers will be pleased to know that LG Google TV will offer the OnLive® app pre-installed, which transforms the TV into an incredible gaming platform without the need for a separate console. The app makes hundreds of high quality video games available instantly from the cloud.

    The embedded dual core CPU enables easy menu navigation, fast Internet browsing and video streaming. The additional processor power allows the TruPicture XD Engine to process images more quickly and precisely, resulting in richer colors, deeper contrast and greater overall picture clarity. Also offering CINEMA 3D TV functionality, the LG Google TV employs FPR technology to give movie buffs and gamers a great 3D effect.

    The GA6400 series will be available in 42-, 47-, 50-, 55- and 60-inch class screen sizes (42.0-, 47.0-, 50.0-, 55.6- and 59.8-inch diagonals, respectively). LG applied its CINEMA SCREEN design to its 2013 premium GA7900 series (47- and 55-inch class screen sizes) to offer a sleek, modern look for discerning consumers who want the Google experience, but don't want to sacrifice on aesthetics. This design further minimizes width of the bezel, giving the TV a streamlined appearance while creating the impression of a borderless display. Along with the LG Google TV's unique stand design, it integrates perfectly with interior design of a living room.

    *Smart TV devices include HDTVs, Blu-ray Disc Players and Network Home Theater Systems. Internet connection and certain subscriptions required and sold separately. Content and services vary by product and are subject to change without notice.
    *For a small percentage of the population, the viewing of stereoscopic 3D video may cause discomfort such as dizziness or nausea. If you experience any of these symptoms, discontinue using the 3D functionality and contact your health care provider.

    The picture shows Hulu Plus on a display that appears nothing at all like Google TV, not sure how LG is going to pull that off on a Google TV model. If Hulu Plus is coming to Google TV, that would certainly be good news but I have seen no announcement.

    LG needs to add DLNA to the current line up as well as to the new line up.. We also need to be able to have access to all 3D modes across all the TV's inputs/outputs as well as inside 3rd party apps. These are 2 things that need to be addressed NOW before i can even think about buying another Google TV model by LG. The first gen Sony Google TV set had DLNA built in out of the box from day 1. So for LG to not have DLNA as a default standard on this TV is crazy.. It's 2013..! Who wants to have to take drives back and forth from the TV to the computer to load up the content and then back to the TV. I have 16tb of media that i could access fully from my 1st gen Sony Google TV set but upon "upgrading" you might even call it "downgrading" as i gained 3D but lost access to my media library natively.. I know i can use a 3rd party app to access network attached storage via DLNA, but the point is i shouldn't have to use a 3rd party app.. It should be built in.! LG get on the ball and please fix those 2 small but huge issues A.S.A.P...

    this is a marketing picture...i would not be surprised if 1/2 the apps you see there were never intended to be on the TV. this is a common practice among all manufacturers.

    we should tell Google to add it to the LG TV's this time. the TV does have DLNA built into it, its just that the GTV OS didnt come with an app out of the box that would support it. all you had to do is just download an app, plus Plex is already included in the premium section so technically the TV can do DLNA right out of the box.

    It can do dlna out of the box after you login to the play store and download a DLNA client. Not what I was looking for.. This topic is old now and I've moved on.. I'll soon be giving this TV to a family member and probably getting a high end panel and just add a Google TV box from now on.. Thanks..its been real..!
