1080p DivX Support Coming to LG HDTVs in May

LG has announced support for full 1080p DivX video in their new line of TVs, which begin shipping in May. LG has always been quick to try out new—if sometimes marginal—technologies in their TVs, like DivX playback from mass storage, which LG introduced in 2007. Similarly, this feature is great news for those of us who want a convenient way to play torrented Blu-ray rips our HD home video collection, but will mean absolutely nothing to the majority of people who buy the sets.
