Foxtel Play allows people to access a range of Foxtel live and on-demand services without needing a dedicated set-top box — as an IP service, you simply watch your shows via a home computer or one of a number of selected devices.

Previously, that's only been the Xbox 360 and some Samsung TVs. Now, LG TVs are joining that list, with a Foxtel Play app now available via LG's SmartWorld app store.

The models that will run the Foxtel Play service are:

60LA8600; 55LA8600; 60LA7410; 55LA7400; 55LA6620; 50LA6620; 47LA6620; 42LA6620; 60LA6230; 55LA6230; 50LA6230; 42LA6230; 32LA6230; 60LN5710; 55LN5710; 42LN5710; 55LA6200; 55LA6910; 42LA6910.

With Foxtel Play on Xbox 360 proving popular, we'd anticipate that Foxtel will make more announcements regarding Play compatibility across other devices, including the Xbox One, in the near future.
