LG has announced that it's adding movie streaming capability to its HDTV range in a deal with VUDU - a company that provides on-demand video over the Web.

A library of over 2000 high-definition movies will be available, as will some TV shows. The company says that there are no monthly fees and no additional hardware, and that you'll get full 1080p resolution and 5.1 surround sound.

To get the package, you'll need LG's NetCast Entertainment Access, and a TV with an Ethernet port. The compatible TVs range from 42-inch to 60-inch and also have content from Netflix, Yahoo Widgets, and YouTube. Existing LG Broadband TV owners should get the VUDU service next month, the company says.
