Freesat signs up LG

Tuner-integrated TVs first. Set-top boxes to follow?

Top three mobile application threats

LG is to follow Panasonic and release a series of TVs with integrated Freesat tuners later this year.

LG didn't say which of its LCD and plasma tellies will get Freesat support, but it hinted that the partnership with the free-to-air SD and HD satellite broadcasting service could be extended to other products - set-top boxes and DVRs, presumably.

For its part, Freesat said it was "extremely pleased" to have LG on board - not least because right now it only has five big names on its books, and three of those - Bush, Grundig and Goodmans - are sub-brands of a single manufacturer.

Freesat pledged to announce more partners this year.

Panasonic last updated its Freesat HD TV line in September 2008.
