How does a free TV sound? Yeah, we thought so. Find out how to pay absolutely nothing to score this budget set from LG.

Congrats to Jeremiah M. of Norwalk, Conn., for winning part 2 of our Comic-Con swag giveaway last week. This week, we've got a big prize. Forty-two inches big.

We're giving away a 42-inch plasma TV, the LG PA4500 . CNET reviewer Ty Pendlebury calls the set a decent budget television, if not quite up to the level of competitors when it comes to picture quality. Still, Ty likes the model for its punchy colors and detail in shadows. Video processing is also a highlight, he says, and it uses less power than 1080p-resolution plasmas of this size.

Normally, a 42-inch LG PA4500 plasma TV would run you $450, but you have the chance to get one for zilch, nada, bubkes. How do you go about doing that? There are a few rules, so please read carefully.

And if you like the idea of a free television, keep your eyes on the Crave giveaway in the months to come. We have more where the LG PA4500 came from.
