Vudu now live on LG NetCast HDTVs

The streaming movie service Vudu is now available on LG NetCast HDTVs, which include the LH50 and PS80 series.

About a month ago, LG announced it was adding Vudu 's streaming movie functionality to its suite of NetCast services, and as of Tuesday, that functionality is officially available. We still have the LG 47LH50 on hand, so we fired it up and were immediately asked to update the firmware. After a short wait, we rebooted the TV and the Vudu icon was available.

We took it for only a short test drive, but Vudu on the 47LH50 felt nearly identical to the experience you get on a dedicated Vudu set-top box. We've seen some reports that LG's TruMotion dejudder processing--which can make films look unrealistic--may be permanently enabled, but we were able to turn it off by accessing the Quick Menu.

NetCast is currently available on the LH50 and PS80 line of LG HDTVs.
