As LG announces a Netflix-enabled television in the States, here in the UK, Freesat has announced a partnership with the Korean company to produce Freesat integrated products in 2009.

The two companies have signed a deal which will see LG producing integrated digital televisions initially - apparently with the prospect of "further products" in the future.

“We’re extremely pleased to be working with LG as a manufacturing partner for Freesat in 2009", said Emma Scott, Freesat’s MD.

"LG is world renowned for its quality products and this partnership will give consumers even more ways to enjoy Freesat as we grow the service”.

Panasonic currently offers TVs with Freesat tech built-in. Freesat is also in talks with "a range" of other manufacturers thinking of producing Freesat products and promises to announce further partners in 2009.
