  1. You posted 2 topics that are the same, which I merged for you.
  2. Just like on iOS and Android it's not Apple and Google that make their HBO apps, its HBO that makes it and submits their app to the operating system's app catalog. LG webOS and other TV platforms shouldn't be expected to build an app for a network and their content, you don't expect Apple to build every app in their catalog...it's usually up to each individual developer to provide their app.
  3. I haven't used mine in a while.
  4. https://www.slashgear.com/palm-devices-coming-in-2018-without-webos-30497716/ A new Palm smartphone has been tipped to be coming in the year 2018, made by the folks at TCL. The Palm brand has been in limbo for the past half-decade, moving in and out of HP-connected devices then on into relative obscurity. The Palm operating system was acquired by LG and continues to be used (in some form or another) in LG smart TVs to this day – as such, it won’t be coming with the Palm phone set for next year. On the day when gesture controls for the next iPhone just started to look like the last phone version of Palm OS, word appears of Palm’s resurgence. Sadly, this resurgence almost certainly wont include Palm OS. Word comes from Android Planet that TCL Marketing Manager Stefan Streit confirmed that they’ve finally gotten to a place where they can make a Palm phone. TCL acquired the Palm brand all the way back in 2011. Streit apparently suggested that new Palm devices would be announced in early 2018. While Streit did not specify which devices would be coming, AP suggested that a smartphone and a new PalmPilot would be obvious releases. TCL suggested with AP that they’ve created a collection of aims with each of the brands they currently command. With Alcatel, they target so-called “millenials”. With BlackBerry, they target the business market. Palm would be made for adult users, both those that remember Palm as a brand they trusted in their past, and for those that will seek out Palm as a brand new high-quality smartphone brand. Hopefully TCL can bring as much quality to the hardware with Palm as they have with both Alcatel and BlackBerry. If they do, if they can, Samsung might want to watch its back – at least for the Galaxy Note business. Prepare yourselves for the Palm with Android collection!
  5. Please do not post duplicate topics. Your other (same) topic has been removed. Thank you.
  6. There hasn't been much news on this recently except for this week when reports starting coming in that Palm phones would be coming out in 2018... running android and not webOS. https://www.extremetech.com/mobile/254835-tcl-will-revive-palm-brand-devices-slated-2018 https://www.slashgear.com/palm-devices-coming-in-2018-without-webos-30497716/
  7. ProBeam UST and MiniBeam Deliver the Ideal Home Cinema Experience With Wide-Range of Extremely Convenient Features SEOUL, Aug. 21, 2017 — Ranked number one in the LED projector category for six consecutive years, LG Electronics (LG) is set to extend its lead in the category with the unveiling of two new projectors at IFA, Europe’s largest consumer electronics and home appliance show. In Berlin, LG will be introducing its ProBeam UST (Ultra Short-Throw) laser projector (model HF85JA) and LG MiniBeam (model PH30JG) as part of its strategy to extend its leadership in the LED/Laser projector market which is projected to grow to USD 5.7 billion in three years.1 The LG ProBeam UST offers a Full HD (1080p) image in a ultra-short throw design for an immersive home cinema experience without the hassles associated with most home projectors. Ultra Short-Throw projectors are convenient as they do not require professional installation, a jumble of unsightly cables or expansive space between the projector and the screen, the ProBeam UST only requiring 12cm to display a 100-inch image. And the ProBeam UST is intuitive to use because it does not require its own stand – simply place it on any existing furniture and it becomes movie night. And never again cast a shadow on the screen when getting up for more popcorn. Consumers who have doubts about the effectiveness of projectors in brightly lit rooms can put them to rest because the LG ProBeam UST generates up to 1,500 ANSI lumen of brightness, 1.5 times brighter than LG’s previous UST projector. And the ProBeam UST’s 150,000:1 contrast ratio ensures that every TV show or movie will look crisp and accurate. What’s more, the light source in the ProBeam UST is incredibly durable, estimated to last up to 20,000 hours. Its innovative I-shaped laser engine gives it a slim and sleek profile that looks great in any room. The LG ProBeam UST offers a host of options to connect it to a number of wireless speakers or headphones. Its four corner keystone feature corrects both horizontal and vertical distortion of the picture providing maximum flexibility to position the ProBeam UST in ways that other projectors could only dream of. And this premium device comes with LG’s award-winning webOS Smart TV platform, giving viewers access to the ever-growing number of streaming services. The LG MiniBeam is an incredibly easy to use portable projector also set to debut at IFA 2017. An HD projector with a built-in battery that lasts up to four hours, the MiniBeam packs plenty of cord-free power to play back two full-length movies while camping, sitting on the patio or relaxing in a hotel room. One of its most impressive features, Multi-Angle Projection, allows the device to be tilted up to 70 degrees to display an image high on a wall or even on the ceiling without the use of a tripod. The LG MiniBeam projector offers users unprecedented freedom in a portable package. USB Type-C compatibility gives the MiniBeam the ability to connect and mirror other devices such as laptops and smartphone and charge its internal 9000mAh battery with a single cable. The MiniBeam can send an audio signal to any other Bluetooth-enabled device – wireless speaker, smartphone even a car audio system. “We are immensely proud of our long-standing position as the global leader in portable LED projectors,” said Jang Ik-hwan, head of the IT business division at LG Electronics. “The projectors that we’ll be debuting at IFA will provide consumers with an immersive, high-quality home cinema experience that’s extremely convenient, reliable and fun.” Visitors to the LG’s booth in Hall 18 of Messe Berlin from September 1-6 will have a chance to experience LG’s newest lineup of projectors first-hand.

  10. LG televisions are getting a new feature – and Sky is to thank Good news, LG TV owners – your televisions are about to get a great upgrade, thanks to the addition of the Sky Store. In what LG is describing as an “exclusive” win, the LG webOS television platform will now give users access to the Sky Store TV app. It’s not strictly an exclusive as Roku set-top boxes already offer access to the Sky Store, but this appears to be the first time a TV’s built-in operating system supports the app. “We’re delighted to again partner with Sky to bring its latest movie content to our Smart TV platform,” said Darren Petersen, Head of Partnerships for LG, in a statement sent to Trusted Reviews. He continued: “The Sky Store service offers our users even more choice when deciding what entertainment to enjoy on our award-winning TVs and an unrivalled selection of the latest movies, giving yet another reason for potential new customers to select an LG TV.” The Sky Store will give users access to new movies added each week, with Sky noting Beauty and the Beast, Kong: Skull Island and Logan as recent additions to the service. You can buy or rent the latest movies, and when you buy one, you’ll get the digital HD copy plus the DVD in the post. The Sky Store will be available for users in the UK and Ireland on every LG television running on webOS versions 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5. This includes LG’s latest 2017 line-up of OLED televisions too. Speaking about the announcement, James Morton, Sky’s Head of Strategy, said: “Sky Store continues to be a huge hit and as the UK’s regular number one digital retailer for new movie releases, it is fantastic we can offer LG Smart TV customers blockbuster movies straight to their big screen at home.” Source: http://www.trustedreviews.com/news/lg-tv-sky-store-app-3247577
