LAS VEGAS — LG Electronics says it will introduce its first 3-D-capable flat-panel TVs for the U.S. market in May.

Other major TV manufacturers are expected to join the Korean company with announcements of 3-D TVs later Wednesday at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The industry is making a major push to get 3-D into the home while consumers are still excited by 3-D movies in theaters.

Prices for the new LG sets have not yet been announced, but Tim Alessi, director of product development at LG Electronics USA, said the TVs likely will cost about $200 to $300 more than comparable sets without 3-D functions.
