LG's Smart TV platform starts renting out Disney 3D movies, offers new buyers $50 worth

Although these have been accomplished by two different branch entities, there's no doubt the folks over at Disney are in a deal-making mood as of late. Having recently announced a deal bringing new content to Cablevision subscribers, Disney has also partnered up with LG to bring an array of 3D films over to its Smart TV platform -- so long as the units are 3D-ready and you are in the US, of course. This means movies from studios such as Disney Pixar, Walt Disney Pictures, Marvel and Touchstone Pictures will available to rent in three-dee directly from LG's 3D World, including The Avengers, Toy Story, Alice in Wonderland and, later next year, Finding Nemo. Better yet, LG's currently offering a deal which hands you $50 in credit (which expires December 31st) to spend on 3D rentals -- naturally, however, you'll have to shell out some cash on one of its qualifying TVs in order to take advantage of this promo. To learn more about that, check out the press release after the break.

And for those of you who already have an LG 3D set, you get...nothing!

$8.09 for the avengers. Ouch! The Blu-Ray was $19.99 on special sale at Target. Kinda curious about the quality. VUDU is pretty darn good (not Blu-ray good obviously) but better than the 1080 Netflix signal IMHO. Waiting for someone to try this. I may just bite the bullet and give it a whirl.

I wonder about the quality as well. I am not a fan of side-by-side (assuming that's what it is?) - as most content I've seen in that format has been clearly inferior to blu-ray.
