LG recently released a line of televisions that come with USB ports, allowing you to easily watch content from your computer via a quick USB transfer. Most people realize that the real reason this is so handy is not because you can watch vacation clips, listen to music or look at photos on your TV. However, for those who genuinely didn't know, the USB ports make it way easier to watch pirated movies or TV shows on your television set.
TorrentFreak reports that in the manual for some of LG's newer, USB-enabled TVs, a diagram clearly shows the USB feature being used to play pirated movies. Listed in the illegal copies of both the Incredibles and the Aviator.
LG has yet to comment on this but as TF points out, it would be interesting to hear what movie studios have to say on the subject.
