Freesat and LG Electronics (LG) have announced a strategic partnership to provide the Freesat service on LG’s new and existing satellite enabled smart TVs.

LG will launch Freesat channels on the new LF650 and LF630 TVs, in screen sizes ranging from 32” to 55” and fully compatible with LG’s market-leading Magic Motion Remote Control. The new range of Freesat-enabled LG TVs will be available from leading high street retailers.

LG will also support the service across its existing TVs. Owners of satellite-compatible TVs will gain access to over 200 subscription free TV and radio channels, with many in high definition, via a software rollout to customers.

“Freesat is delighted to be partnering with LG to offer Freesat on its range of new and existing satellite TVs,” comments Matthew Huntington, Chief Technology Officer at Freesat. “LG has built an important position in the UK market, repeatedly positioning great products at the right price. Partnering with Freesat will provide customers even better choice, with over 200 channels, completely subscription free, this partnership between LG and Freesat is offering viewers something special.”
