Arrive on 2019 LG TVs

Share

The Apple TV app, including access to the new streaming service Apple TV+, has now arrived on LG smart TVs.

The app will certainly be on TVs in greater than 80 nations and also provides customers accessibility to Apple's brand-new Apple TV+ video clip registration solution in addition to the capacity to rent out or get films from iTunes.

The Apple TV app and Apple TV+ will be available on 2020 TVs at launch and on LG's 2018 TVs later this year via an over-the-air firmware upgrade.

It follows the introduction of its 2020 smart TVs with the Apple TV app in January at CES.

Love is also shared further down the LG line, with the NanoCell TVs (SM9X and SM8X series) receiving the update, while later in the year the UHD LCD TVs (UM7X and UM6X series) will also get the features. Many are now in 4K with Dolby Vision HDR support too, as is compatible with the majority of new LG TVs.

The TVs that support the ‌Apple TV‌ app are also compatible with AirPlay 2, allowing users to share or mirror content from the iPhone, iPad, or Mac directly to an LG TV. Now we're hearing that select 2019 LG TVs will also be getting Apple TV+ along with AirPlay 2. And with HomeKit support, users are able to control their TV with the Home app on their iPhone, or iPad. According to Apple's website, other TV manufacturers including Sony and VIZIO, only offer AirPlay 2 support for now. However, anyone buying a 2020 LG TV will have the Apple TV app available at launch, the company says. "By bringing the Apple TV app and Apple TV+ to even more TV models, we are once again demonstrating our determination to meet consumers' needs and add value to our products".
