The films available right now included the Toy Story trilogy and Alice in Wonderland among others. LG says its Smart TV program allows for a movie theater 3-D quality experience for the whole family. LG points out that most of its Cinema 3-D Smart TVs include six pairs of 3-D glasses allowing the whole family to watch popular Disney programs.
LG is trying to drum up support for its new 3-D offerings by offering new TV buyers a coupon worth $50 in 3-D content. LG says that by the spring of 2013 several other 3-D movies will be available, including Finding Nemo, Bolt, Gnomeo & Juliet, Tangled, and Tron: Legacy. Prices for renting 3-D films range between four dollars and eight dollars each.
