LG Uplus bringing IPTV with Google TV to Korea

If you’ve ever considered moving to Korea to enjoy its kimchi and K-pop — starting today we have another reason for you. Korean IPTV provider LG Uplus will offer an integrated Google TV set-top box, combining its TV subscription service with Google TV.

With Google TV in the u+tv G, you get more content to watch than ever before, and an easier way to find whatever you’re looking for. New and existing LG Uplus subscribers can get the u+tv G starting today, bringing live TV and 50,000 on demand titles, now integrated with Google TV apps like Search, YouTube, Google Play and Chrome.

With this launch, LG Uplus becomes the first IPTV provider to offer an integrated Google TV box for its subscribers, and Korea becomes the tenth country in which Google TV is available. To help us kick this off in style, keep an eye out for superstar Psy of Gangnam Style fame who’ll be appearing in an LG Uplus campaign around Korea. 

We’ll continue to work with cable, satellite, and IPTV partners around the world to make consumers’ TV experience even better through Google TV.
