LG adds ‘Canal Ready TV’s to its offering

All 2010 LG TV models on sale in France are being labelled ‘Canal Ready’ from now on.
With this move LG join a growing number of suppliers including Sony and Samsung who already have ‘Canal Ready’ models.
Displaying the label indicates that the sets have a CI slot and an internal decoder which allows viewers access to the Canal+ channels and CanalSat bouquets without the need for an additional set-top box.
Canal+ France began offering Conditional Access Modules suitable for use in the Canal Ready labelled TVs in the spring of this year. The CI modules together with the appropriate smart card give access to all the group’s terrestrial pay channels.
