LOVEFiLM have struck a deal with LG to provide their Smart TV platform with access to their movie streaming platform.

In a move to further bolster LOVEFiLM’s position following the launch of rival Netflix in the UK, it’s the first movie and TV subscription streaming service to hit LGs web-connected screens.

“We are very excited to add Amazon’s LOVEFiLM to the already extensive range of content on LG’s Smart TV platform,” said Stacey Seltzer, head of LG Smart TV.

“LG’s Smart TV provides a powerful new offering in home entertainment and we have invested significantly in this technology. Working with Amazon’s LOVEFiLM is further proof of LG’s commitment to providing customers with the best possible service.”

LOVEFiLM recently announced that they would be dropping the price of their unlimited streaming service, LOVEFiLM Instant, to £4.99 a month, as well as inking new streaming deals with Disney’s ABC, ITV and BBC Worldwide.

Launching in April, LG screens compatible with the new LOVEFiLM app include:

. LW980T (47″/55″)
. LW650T (42″/47″/55″)
. LW550T (42″/47″/55″)
. LV550T (32″/37″/42″/47″)
. PZ950T (50″/60″)
