    Can I get one that is wifi ready and go to the Dish website via wifi LCD and watch TV ?

    Has anyone done with any success?

    More like does the TV have a browser? If so who's browser does it support....as of now I know IE9, FF, work....Just because a TV or DVD player have internet conection dosent mean it works like a computer...most do not and use some kind of app. for streaming programing.

    My LG TV has its own browser but no way will it do Dish online. It's possible that the Android app could work if it could be installed. But I would need to hack into the OS to do that.

    That's why I asked. Looks like this is not going to happen.

    Thanks

    There is no way that I can see to install an app, other than those provided by LG.

    I suppose hacking would involve either a jtag interface or possible serial port access while it is booting. :confused:

    I thought there is well known venue for that, seems it's not develop yet.
