The LG ST600 doesn’t just offer access to Netflix, (s NFLX) VUDU (s WMT) and Amazon (s AMZN) VOD, but also integrates with Plex, the media center solution of choice for many cord cutters. Check it out in this episode of Cord Cutters:

Show notes for this episode:

  • The LG ST600 is available online for as little as $85. Check LG’s website for more details on the device.
  • LG has worked with Plex to add the media center platform to the ST600. Users still need to install the Plex server on their PC or Mac in order to make use of it. Plex can be downloaded for free online.
  • A dedicated ST600 forum on the Plex website offers some insight┬áinto the capabilities and limitations of LG’s Plex integration.

    Thanks, Janko, for that informative demonstration of the LG Smart TV Upgrader. Unfortunately I disagree with your conclusion that it is “half-baked” and that the Roku 2 would be a better purchase. Based on your earlier presentation of the Roku, the ST600 has more functionality for about the same price. The MediaLink/Plex function has been improved by a recent beta firmware, and most of the Plex plugins work, like Revision 3 for example. And you didn’t demonstrate the SmartShare functions. I have several media servers installed on my XP desktop PC, like TVersity, Twonky and PlayON, and they work fine with the ST600.

    I look forward to all of your episodes, Janko and team, and I hope your conclusions will more closely reflect the features you demonstrate!
