LG Electronics will soon introduce TV sets that can screen Netflix movies directly from the Web without an external box.

Last year, Netflix and LG launched set-top boxes and Blu-ray DVD players equipped with the same Netflix software.

The new high-definition LG televisions, which will be on view at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week, are targeted at Netflix customers who want the convenience of Internet-to-TV movies without the clutter of a set-top box or an additional DVD player.

The televisions, which use broadband Internet technology, will be available in four models -- LCDs with 42-inch and 47-inch screens, and plasma TVs with 50-inch and 60-inch screens.
