LG to open cloud service tomorrow: 5GB free, 50GB for 6 months with an LG device
LG has announced their plans to release their own cloud-based storage platform. Dubbed “LG Cloud” (Brilliant!), the service streams a plethora of media between your LG Smart TV and your other devices, stores your files in the cloud, and allows for quick, realtime streaming. File types allowed include:
Video : 29 extensions including ASF, AVI, MPEG, MP4, WMV, MOV and MKV
– Music : 35 extensions including FLAC, MID, MP4, OGG, WMA, RM and WAV
– Photo : 33 extensions including GIF, JPG, PNG, TIFF, BMP and PSD
– Document : 60 extensions including DOC, PPT, XLS, TXT, HTML and PSD
The service launches tomorrow for USA and South Korean customers, with no word on when it will head out to other regions. If you’re a standard LG Hub user without an LG device, you’ll get an automatic 5GB of storage. However, with an LG device, you get 50GB free for 6 months – pricing beyond that is yet a mystery. You’ll need to both download the app from the Play Store and hit up the online hub to get started.
