Entone signs LG Netcast deal

Entone, a hybrid TV and connected home solutions provider, has signed a deal to integrate LG Electronics’ Netcast streaming platform with Entone’s hybrid media gateway.

The combined solution is designed to deliver linear TV and over-the-top TV services to internet-connected consumer electronics devices without the need for a traditional set-top box, Entone said.

The first LG Netcast-enabled device supported by Entone will be the LG SP530 Media Player, which supports OTT video services such as Netflix, Vudu, Hulu and YouTube.

Entone said that, together with LG, it will develop a streaming player application specifically targeting subscribers of broadband service providers, selected cable operators and other multichannel video programme distributors.
