NEW YORK --- December 14, 2005 --- LG Electronics, a leading global consumer products manufacturer, continues to make kitchens more innovative, stylish and family-friendly with a new edition of its popular TV Refrigerator. The unique, digitally-converged device is updated with a fresh design and new features, enabling consumers to get more out of the kitchen's most important appliance the refrigerator. On display for the first time at the company's 2006 product preview in New York City, the newest version of the TV Refrigerator now includes a cable-ready, 15-inch LCD television screen with remote control, enhanced personalization features and a display for a family information center that includes weather forecasting, photo album and recipe bank all in a sleek side-by-side unit.
"As a leader in digital convergence, LG continues to shape the future of consumer refrigeration by combining new information-enabled features with the popular TV Refrigerator to meet the demands of today's consumer," said Teddy Hwang, President of Digital Appliances for LG Electronics, U.S.A. "Not only have we increased the screen size on the new model, but we've incorporated new features, including weather forecasting and pre-loaded recipes, making this important kitchen product better than ever."
The TV Refrigerator continues to dazzle consumers who are seeking premium, technologically advanced appliances for their homes. The popular side-by-side model offers an innovative, multi-function digital LCD display on the left side.
