LG Electronics announces Pause & Play TVs for Europe at the IFA 2007 in Berlin. LG also announces that they received the Freeview Playback certification from the UK’s Digital Television Group for these new TVs with integrated DVR.

The Digital Television Group, or DTG, is the UK’s industry association for digital television. It set technical standards for DVR in 2006 and also created guidelines for consumers who are looking to purchase digital video recorders as the UK prepares to change over to digital broadcasting by 2008.

There are two levels of Freeview Playback certification. To attain the first level a DVR must be able to record essential program information including audio, video, subtitles and closed captions. Second level certification requires that the DVR have an advanced programming guide that can make intelligent decisions about when to schedule recording times.

LG’s Freeview Playback certified Pause & Play TVs will be available in the UK in late August. Three LCD models in 32-, 37- and 42-inch sizes and two plasma models in 42- and 50-inch sizes will be offered.
