Friends of Automated Home, WeGotServed.com have just published this video from CES showing an LG NetCast Smart TV running Plex. The UI looks exceptional for something that’s built into a telly (checkout ‘Powered by Plex” in the top right hand corner). Last week brought you news of the LG ST600 and speculated that Plex would most likely be included in it too.
We believe the ST600 is the identical (1080p capable) hardware that’s going inside the 2011 LG NetCast HDTVs and Blu-ray players, but despite this, “Media Link” (LG speak for Plex) doesn’t appear to be included in the the TV Upgrader from what we can see in this video. Tell us it isn’t so LG?? This is the box we’re all waiting for to bring Plex to all our existing HDTVs!
We’re crossing our fingers this isn’t the final firmware for the ST600 and there’s still time for LG to add Plex in.
