APPLE TV APP AND APPLE TV+ NOW AVAILABLE ON 2019 LG TVS IN MORE THAN 80 COUNTRIES
With the Apple TV App, LG TV Owners Can Now Enjoy Apple TV+,
Apple TV Channels and More in Stunning Dolby Vision
SEOUL, Feb. 04,
2020— LG Electronics (LG), which introduced its 2020 smart TVs with the Apple TV app in January at CES, is now launching the Apple TV app for compatible 2019
LG smart TVs in over 80 countries. Easily accessed from the LG Home Launcher, the Apple TV app gives LG TV
owners the ability to subscribe to and watch Apple TV+, Apple’s new video
subscription service that features popular Apple Originals such as “The Morning
Show,” “See,” “Servant” and “Little America.”
With the Apple TV app, LG TV owners can also subscribe to Apple TV channels — direct subscriptions to premium video services available both online and offline, ad-free and on demand — and access their iTunes video library and buy or rent over 100,000 movies and TV shows. A quick click of the LG Magic Remote is all it takes to get started.
LG’s TVs offer users a cinematic experience with the best picture and
sound on the market to match the constantly growing number of programs from top
global content providers. With a wide range of titles available in Dolby
Vision, the Apple TV app is an ideal match for LG’s TVs. LG was an early
adopter of Dolby technology, and its latest TVs continue to support Dolby
Vision, offering users the most immersive viewing experience with truly vivid
colors, greater depth and stunningly realistic sound.
LG’s 2019 TVs also support Apple AirPlay 2, which allows users to share or mirror content from their
iPhone, iPad or Mac directly to an LG TV. Customers can also play music on the TV and sync it with other
AirPlay 2 compatible speakers anywhere in the home. Also supported is Apple HomeKit, which lets users easily and securely control their TV with the Home app on their iPhone or iPad
or by voice using Siri , enabling them to power on or off, change volume,
switch inputs and more.
LG TV customers can now enjoy Apple TV in addition to AirPlay 2 and
HomeKit on all of LG’s 2019 OLED TVs, NanoCell TVs (series SM9X and SM8X) and later
this month, the Apple TV app will roll out on select UHD TVs (series UM7X and
UM6X). 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.
continues to offer the best home entertainment experience through technological innovations that
support the delivery of high quality viewing and user convenience,” said Park
Hyoung-sei, president of the LG Home Entertainment Company. “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.”
