While cloud services in general are hotter than ever, it's been quite some time since we've heard an update on LG Cloud. But now, the Korea-based company is providing a crucial update. LG Cloud was first (quietly) rolled out in the U.S., South Korea and Russia last year, but now, things are about to get a lot more global. LG plans to roll Cloud out to more than 40 other nations (including those in Europe, Asia, and Latin America) but the next of May. LG Cloud enables users to stream content directly to LG CINEMA 3D Smart TVs as well as providing a convenient location to store entertainment content that automatically synchronizes between PCs, smartphones and TVs.

"LG Cloud eliminates the time-consuming process of having to download or manually transfer content between devices," said Richard Choi, senior vice president of the Smart Business Center at LG Electronics "Today's consumers are no longer loyal to only one type of screen. They move seamlessly from TVs to PCs to smartphones and it's up to us to help them get the content they want whenever and wherever they want it. LG is one of very few companies that can offer integration across so many display products."


The LG Cloud app offers access to videos, photos and music once it is uploaded to the user's account. Available on Google Play or the LG Smart World store, the easy-to-install app is compatible with LG CINEMA 3D Smart TVs, PCs and Android smartphones. After a quick setup process, users can begin streaming up to 5GB of content for free directly to their CINEMA 3D Smart TV without having to first download files to a smart storage device. Multimedia can be conveniently saved and streamed from LG Cloud, freeing up gigabytes of space on overloaded smartphones and PCs. Content can be uploaded to LG Cloud using the PC client, website or smart device. In the near future, smart home appliances will also be able to connect and share via LG Cloud for a truly integrated and convenient experience.

Now, here's the real question: what about an affordable 4K HDTV from LG?

this looks like a very nice service lg is providing but it will only succeed if it is not lg product exclusive. But yes mayhem matthew makes a good point. Lg is a little late to the cloud party. While other big name cloud service providers are like growing and powerful cumulonimbus thunderhead clouds lgs services is more like a thin layer of cirrus clouds that dont have much substance or reach
