Smart TV is the new hot trend in the TV industry and with access to the Internet TV manufacturers hope to take the same route as smartphones did a few years back. LG has announced that their TV App Store is now available on 2011 TVs with Smart TV. From here you can download new video-on-demand services, games, utilities and much more.

FlatpanelsHD tested LG LW6500 a while back but back then the App Store was not available. LG has now issued a software update that makes the App Store available on all 2011 LG flat panel TVs with Smart TV.

In the TV App Store you can download new Apps from different providers. Right now only the international App Store is open but local stores will be rolling out in the coming weeks and months, LG says.

You can find Apps such as"Revision3"; an Internet TV channel, mini games, and"Fitness Trainer"; a fitness coach directly on your TV. In addition you have access to services such as YouTube, Facebook and video-on-demand services such as Netflix (only in US).

If you have a LCD/LED model with Smart TV from LG’s 2011 line-up you can take a look around in the TV App Store now. If you have a LG plasma-TV from the 2011 line-up you have to wait until later this week or next week to access the TV App Store.
