“At LG we strive to develop new technologies that make TVs sleeker and smarter,” comments James Atkins, marketing manager for LG brown goods. “Our Freeview playback TVs have made it far easier to use DVRs by eliminating the need to connect yet another external box to the TV and learn to use it. This new range will become synonymous with intuitive, beautiful and high-tech televisions that enhance the viewing experience.”

With a 160Gb digital DVRs and dual digital tuners, the Freeview playback TVs are capable of storing up to 48 hours and 10 minutes of digital high quality programming or 86 hours and 20 minutes of digital standard quality programming. This is enough to record all fifty-seven of the EURO 2008 games, scheduling for which may be found using the built-in Electronic Programme Guide.

The LT75 and PT85 series are the first to be Freeview Playback certified. This standard was created by UK DTV Services Limited to promote DVRs by raising consumer trust and awareness.

The LCD LT75 series has soft and subtle curves that break with the idea that TVs must be sharp and rectangular. It incorporates True Viewing Angle technology, which minimizes colour distortion and provides stable and accurately represented images from all angles. The PT85 plasma incorporates Dual Peaks technology, which eliminates flicker, even during fast-moving action scenes, by enabling 100Hz driving. This improves the experience of watching fast-paced action movies or sports.

These televisions are compatible with most cable and satellite set-top boxes and include HDMI, composite, S-video and SCART inputs. The LT75 series is available in 32-, 37-, and 42-inch models and the PT85 series is available in 42- and 50-inch variations.
