LAS VEGAS — Smart TVs got a big boost at CES when Verizon announced it would be providing a FIOS TV app for LG Smart TVs, effectively providing a TV Everywhere-type of entry point into the service provider via LG's connected sets. We caught up at CES with Matt Durgin, Director Smart TV Content, LG Electronics USA.
In addition to Smart TVs, Durgin shared details on the work LG is doing in 3D TVs because 3D capability is built into many smart sets, he said. "Each year over year there is more 3D content available, and more 3D TV sets in the market," he said. LG Smart TVs also let users stream 3D programming. He expects a large growth curve in the consumption of 3D content over the next 12 months.
