LOVEFiLM has announced a partnership with LG to bring their video streaming service, LOVEFiLM instant, to LG’s Smart TV platform.

It is LG’s first ever film and TV subscription streaming application and will allow owners access to almost unlimited content on demand via the internet.

LOVEFiLM instant is an unlimited streaming package available on 175 devices; including games consoles, tablets and PCs. Thousands of titles are available on the platform including Terminator Salvation, the Hangover and Batman sequel the Dark Knight.

Subscribers can manage their own rental list, rate movies, read reviews and search by cast and crew via LG’s Magic Motion Remote, a motion sensitive controller that does away with the need for buttons.

Simon Calver, CEO of Amazon’s LOVEFiLM, said: “With this latest platform launch we are strengthening our penetration into the living rooms of UK consumers, bringing instant entertainment to more homes than ever before. With every new platform launch we take another step towards our goal of being available to as many people, in as many ways as possible.”
