LG Electronics unveiled the first-of-its-kind digital HDTV Refrigerator, a side-by-side model that incorporates the company's fifth-generation ATSC-QAM-NTSC DTV tuner that delivers crisp digital broadcast and unscrambled cable images to the refrigerator's 15-inch HD LCD TV screen.

In addition to a remote-controlled, cable-ready, HD LCD screen and FM radio on the right door, the unit features a DVD connection on top of the unit for hours of kitchen entertainment. The left door of the unit also includes a four-inch Weather & Info Center LCD display located above the ice and water dispenser complete with an advanced digital control display and special features.

The LG unit also delivers personalized weather forecasts based on a consumer's geographic area, along with the forecast for four surrounding cities, via a wireless pager network. In addition, the refrigerator includes a digital photo album, which allows users to upload personal photo album via a USB port in the dispenser area and select a slide show mode to display favorite pictures.

"LG Electronics is constantly seeking out ways in which we can create innovative, stylish and functional products," said John Herrington, president of LG Electronics USA, digital appliances. "LG is taking this innovation one step further with the introduction of our HDTV Refrigerator by incorporating additional features that further enhance the user experience, from LG's industry-leading digital TV tuner to the Weather & Info Center for weather forecasts, uploadable photo album and recipe bank."
