We first met LG’s small streaming box at CES 2012 in January. At IFA, LG has announced that the SP820 is now available throughout Europe. The media box upgrades every TV to a LG Smart TV.

In addition to internet services as YouTube, Facebook, twitter and local video streaming services, the media box supports network media streaming via DLNA. With DLNA you can stream video, music and pictures to the TV from other devices in your home.
The media box can be connected to your home network via either cable or wirelessly via the built-in WiFi card. Everything can be controlled with LG’s Magic Motion remote or you can use the Magic app on Android or Apple smartphones and tablets.
LG SP820 is becoming available throughout Europe right now. The price is around 130-150 Euro, depending on your country. The real question: do you really want LG’s Smart TV platform? Learn more about it in our LG LM760 Smart TV review.
