  1. COMCAST AND LG PARTNER TO PROVIDE XFINITY CUSTOMERS ACCESS TO THEIR XFINITY TV SUBSCRIPTION ON LG TVs Live, On Demand and Cloud DVR Programming will be Accessible Via Xfinity TV Partner App on LG 4K Ultra HD Smart TVs LG Joins the Xfinity TV Partner Program PHILADELPHIA, PA – September 25, 2017 Comcast and LG Electronics USA today announced Xfinity TV customers will be able to access their cable service via the Xfinity TV Partner app on 2017 and 2018 LG webOS Smart TVs beginning in 2018. Featuring the Emmy Award-winning X1 guide, the app will allow Xfinity TV customers to watch live and on demand programming, including local broadcast and Public, Educational and Governmental channels, as well as their cloud DVR recordings, delivered over Comcast’s secure private managed network on LG 4K Ultra HD Smart TVs led by the critically acclaimed LG OLED and LG SUPER UHD TVs. “With our award-winning webOS user experience, Comcast customers will be able to take advantage of an easy-to-use interface and fast application performance on 2017 and 2018 webOS-enabled TVs,” said Matt Durgin, Head of Content Innovation for LG Electronics USA. “Working with Comcast will bring these experiences to our customers so they can seamlessly enjoy their favorite content on our award-winning 4K Ultra HD TV line-up without the need for a set-top box.” Comcast launched the Xfinity TV Partner Program last year to expand the range of retail devices Xfinity TV customers can use to access the programming that is included with their subscription. Leveraging open standard HTML5 technology, the Xfinity TV Partner Program provides a common framework that smart TV, TV-connected and IP-enabled retail device manufacturers can use to develop an Xfinity TV Partner app for their device so that Xfinity TV customers can access their cable service in their homes without the need to lease a set-top box from Comcast. “We remain committed to giving Xfinity TV customers more options for watching their favorite programming in the home, so we’re thrilled to partner with LG to bring our app to their TVs,” said Michael Gatzke, Vice President, Video Subscription Services, Comcast Cable. "We recognize that today’s consumers are looking for more choices in how, when and where they access their entertainment, and via partners like LG we can expand the range of devices they can use in the home to do just that.” Comcast expects to launch a beta of the Xfinity TV Partner app on LG Smart TVs, starting with 2017 models, early next year. All LG Smart TV models feature the latest generation of LG’s highly-acclaimed webOS Smart TV platform, which makes finding and switching between limitless content options – including broadcast TV, streaming services, a growing library of 4K and HDR programming and external devices – simple and fast.

  3. Did you buy a Firesale HP Touchpad? Share the details... Thankfully, I was able to get one myself, but it took a few tries and ordering it on the HP Business site. By the time I checked all the retailer, they were gone! Snagged a 16GB for $99! I hope you grabbed one also...
  4. Bang & Olufsen has introduced the first non-LG HD TV to run LG's webOS with the BeoVision Eclipse. This is a high end TV and we're happy to see the partnership with using webOS 3.5. Article: https://www.startupworld.com/news/technology/bang-and-olufsen-introduces-beosound-shape-beolab-50-beovision-eclipse/ BeoVision Eclipse is the definitive TV featuring the latest 4K HDR OLED screen technology with the best TV sound there ever has been. Launching Eclipse also marked the beginning of a partnership with LG, which is why Eclipse is the first non-LG TV to feature webOS. This product exists in 55 and 65-inch sizes. The key features include a native 4K resolution, HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision support, a 450W integrated sound system with support for extra speakers and as earlier mentioned, the WebOS 3.5 smart TV system. “By merging LG Electronics’ OLED TV technology to the Bang & Olufsen experience, we have reached an even higher level and created the ultimate TV experience. That is why we have chosen the name ‘Eclipse’- two unusual objects meet and create something even more spectacular and beautiful” says Stefan K. Persson, COO."
  5. YouTube Kids comes to LG smart TVs https://techcrunch.com/2017/04/25/youtube-kids-comes-to-smart-tvs/ Specifically, the app will come to the following TVs: all 2015-2017 LG webOS TVs (via the LG content store); all 2013-2017 Samsung Smart TVs and Blu-ray players (via the Samsung App Store); and, following a firmware update, 2016-2017 Sony TVs (with the exception of Android TV, which is coming soon).
  6. Since this is not LG or webOS related, I am moving to Off Topic Forum. 😎
  7. Interesting article on the verge: I have become the unofficial standard bearer for webOS, the operating system created by Palm for the Pre and its successive devices. It was a wildly innovative and smart foundation for a smartphone done in by performance problems, mediocre hardware, and most of all by US carriers who acted as kingmakers for other companies. So as the bearer of a thoroughly-tattered banner, I’ve been hearing a lot of people ask what I thought about the iPhone X and how it borrows many of the ideas first introduced by Palm. Here’s what I think: it’s great, and also it’s silly compare the state of tech in 2017 with the state of tech in 2009. Just because Palm did some stuff first doesn’t take away from Apple is doing them now. Context matters, and our context today is very different. The iPhone X has a lot of new interface ideas. Very few of them 100 percent original. Take FaceID, for example. Both Google with the Galaxy Nexus and Samsung with many other devices have been making unlocking your phone with your face possible — but all of them have been pretty bad compared to what I experienced with the iPhone X. That’s not a Palm example, but it’s instructive: ideas float around and sometimes Apple does a better job of implementing them than others who did it first. Is that the case with the innovations Palm introduced with webOS, then? Yeah, pretty much, because technology marches on. But webOS did some things that nobody has copied yet, too — although I think it’s well past time to stop pining for those unique features.

  8. tom's guide - LG TV Settings Guide: What to Enable, Disable and Tweak by BRIAN WESTOVER Sep 26, 2017, 9:58 AM Premium TVs are getting smarter, but they're also getting more complex. To help you learn the ins and outs of LG's newest smart TVs, we explored and cataloged the specifics of the LG E7 OLED (OLED65E7P), the newest premium smart TV the company currently offers. Because the LG E7 is the company's top-of-the-line option, the menus and features should be representative of the entire LG smart-TV lineup. (The advice found here also applies to all LG sets running WebOS 3.0 or later; current LG systems are running WebOS 3.5.) If you're about to set up a new LG smart TV, this guide should be a good place to start. Initial Setup The first time you fire up your LG smart TV, you'll be walked through an initial setup process. The first step will automatically pair your remote control to the TV. Next, you'll select your language and time zone, and set up the TV for home use. You'll also need to agree with some legal terms: allowing connected services to access cookies and data, and permitting LG's voice controls to interact with the various apps and services you install. How to Pair and Set Up the Remote Credit: LG If your remote doesn't pair automatically, or if it needs to be paired again, you'll need to take a couple of extra steps. Press and hold the home and back buttons simultaneously while pointing the remote at the TV. After 5 seconds, an alert in the top-right corner of the screen should tell you that the remote has been de-registered. To re-register the remote, point it at the display again. Now press and hold the home button. Once the on-screen prompt tells you pairing is complete, you can navigate at will. Optimize the Display To get your new TV set just right, you'll want to adjust the display. There are two ways to do this: through the Quick Settings menu on the home screen, or through the separate Settings menu. To access the Quick Settings menu, go to the home screen, and navigate up to the gear icon in the top-right corner of the screen. In the Quick Settings menu, the second icon from the top is for Picture Mode settings. From here, you can cycle through the TV's display presets: Standard, Vivid, Cinema, Game, Sports, APS (Auto Power Save), and HDR Effect, with two Expert modes for light and dark rooms. On the HDR Effect mode, you'll see a second setting for HDR Effect Level with three options: Light, Medium and Strong. It's worth noting that LG's TVs have the power-saving mode enabled by default, which limits the overall brightness of the display. Whichever mode and settings you prefer, you'll want to disable Auto Power Save to get the best picture. For a list of all display settings, go to the full Settings menu. Select the bottom icon in the Quick Settings menu; the first option in the menu that appears is for the complete list of display settings. In addition to the preset modes mentioned above, there are several other settings here, including Noise Reduction, Black Level, Color and Tint. While most of these options are self-explanatory, others are not, like TruMotion, which optimizes image quality for fast-moving action on-screen; Motion EyeCare, which adjusts screen brightness in sync with on-screen movement to prevent glare-induced eyestrain; and Real Cinema, which matches the TV's refresh rate to 24 frames per second, which makes what you're watching look more like what you'd see in a theater. Optimize the Audio Whether you're using the TV's built-in speakers or a soundbar, you'll want to fine-tune your audio experience. As with the display settings, you can do this via two methods. The first method is to access the audio options in the Quick Settings menu. This gives you the opportunity to cycle through the various sound output options, including the TV's internal speakers, an external soundbar, Bluetooth headphones, or combinations of those. The other method is to go into the full Settings menu, where you'll be offered more granular control. This lets you adjust everything from the sound modes, to the syncing of dialogue, to the display. You also can turn other audio features on or off, like Dolby Atmos surround sound, LG's Smart Sound mode or LG's Magic Sound Tuning, which uses the microphone on the remote to listen to the TV audio from your position, and automatically adjust the audio to sound best, regardless of the room you're in. Voice and Gesture Controls Once the remote is paired properly, you can set up voice and gesture controls. To activate gesture control, first point the remote at the display, and press and hold the Caption button. In the upper-right corner of the display, you'll see an alert that tells you the remote is registering, and then changes to tell you it's done. Once the remote is activated, you'll see a round cursor on the display, which you can maneuver by pointing and moving the remote. This method offers more intuitive control than navigating through menus with the directional buttons on the remote, but whether you prefer it is a matter of personal taste. To activate voice control, simply press and hold the microphone button, which will pull up a search box and on-screen keyboard. If the search box has a highlighted microphone icon next to it, the system is ready for you to speak into the mic. Voice control lets you search for apps and shows, as well as adjust settings such as display brightness and audio volume. Connect to the Internet As part of the initial setup, the TV walks you through the process of connecting to a network. First, select the appropriate connection type: wired or wireless. If selecting a wireless network, you'll then pick your network name from the list of available Wi-Fi networks. You will then be prompted to enter the password. Next, hit Connect to complete the process. Once the TV is connected to the network, LG presents you with a whimsical graphic to let you know you're done. If you skip this step or need to revisit your network settings for any reason, you can open the networking tab in the Settings menu to view the available networks, switch connections or adjust other settings. Get to Know the Home Screen The primary interface for LG's smart-TV operating system (WebOS) is the home screen. Navigate there by simply pressing the home button on the remote. Along the bottom of the screen, you'll see a row of tiles, each with the logo of an app or feature. (You can change the order of these icons, which we'll discuss in the next section.) In the top-right corner are three additional icons, for Settings, Inputs and Music, the latter of which lets you play back music files. Scroll to the right to see tiles for individual features, including the TV's user manual and the option for remote technical assistance. Add, Move and Remove Apps To add apps to your LG smart TV, go to the LG Content Store, which has its own tab in the home-screen ribbon menu. This opens the Content Store, where you can browse apps by name, popularity or category. Once you find an app you want, press the Install button to download that app and add it to your home menu. You can change the order in which apps appear in the home menu by entering Edit Mode. To enter Edit Mode, scroll all the way to the right of the ribbon menu, and select the tab with the pencil icon. Once you're in Edit Mode, you can move or delete apps. Selecting an app lets you move its position to the left or right. Pressing upward to select the X icon lets you delete the app entirely. Sign in to Streaming Apps There are several streaming apps you may be interested in installing on your smart TV, from Netflix and HBO Go to Spotify and Pandora. Once you've installed all of the streaming apps you wish to use, you will need to sign in to each one individually. We've used Netflix in our example, and while each app has its own sign-in process and on-screen keyboard, the overall process is the same. Open the app, and it will prompt you to either sign up for a new account or sign in to an existing one. If you're already using the app on other devices, just sign in to your existing account. Next, using the on-screen keyboard,enter the email address tied to the account. Once you have done this, the screen will ask for your password, which you will re-enter using the on-screen keyboard. Once you have completed this step, you are signed in to that service. MORE: Best Streaming Services Set Up Over-the-Air Channels As part of setting up the TV, you are asked what sort of sources will be used for live TV, with options for cable, satellite and antenna. Select the appropriate sources for your setup, and enter the ZIP code for your area. MORE: Best HDTV Antennas Once you've completed the preliminary steps, you'll need to connect your antenna to the coaxial connector on the back of the TV. Hit Start to begin the channel-tuning process. Regardless of which primary source you select, the tuning process checks for all sources, including both digital and analog antenna signal, and then digital and analog cable signals. Once you've scanned for channels, you'll be switched to live TV. Channels are displayed in the top-left corner of the display. To edit your channel lineup, go to the home screen. Then, select the settings icon in the top right of the screen. Once you've opened the Quick Settings menu, navigate to the bottom option to select all settings and open the full Settings menu. In the full Settings menu, navigate to Channels, and find the Channel Manager. In the Channel Manager, you can edit channels, set favorites and manage parental controls. To remove channels, go to the Edit Channels option, and select the channel source (antenna or cable) or choose All to edit every channel available to you. This will present you with a list of available channels, with selectable toggles next to each. You will have the option of deleting or locking each channel. Connect Devices (Blu-ray player, game console, etc.) Connecting a new device should simply be a matter of plugging in to the correct port. This should be the case whether it's a Blu-ray player, a game console or some other device. If no signal is detected, a prompt will ask if you want to re-scan. Press Yes, and if the device is powered on and plugged in correctly, it should connect at the end of the re-scanning process. If, for some reason, that doesn't work, or you need to manually remove a device, you can go to the Inputs menu, found in the upper-right corner of the home screen, next to the Settings button. Scroll to the bottom of the list to open the full menu. From this interface, you can see active and inactive inputs, re-scan for devices and even re-label inputs. Pairing Bluetooth Devices (speakers, headphones, etc.) You can also pair the TV with Bluetooth headphones or speakers. The process isn't that different from pairing these audio devices with a phone, though you need to use the remote to navigate through the menus. First, open the Quick Settings menu from the home screen, and navigate down to the audio options. Select the LG Sound Sync/Bluetooth option, and then choose Device Select to open the relevant portion of the Settings menu. Next, activate pairing mode on your audio device just as you would to pair it with a phone. If the device doesn't show up in the list of available Bluetooth devices, press Search to re-scan for additional Bluetooth devices. Once found, the Bluetooth device will show up in the list of available devices. Select the device to begin pairing, and you'll be listening through your headphones in a moment or two. MORE: Best Bluetooth Headphones Set Up Mobile Cast/Mirroring Mirroring content from a phone or tablet onto the smart TV is done through LG's TV Plus app (available for both Android and iOS). Using this app, you can share your photos, videos and music between your devices and your smart TV, or mirror the screen for sharing other content. This app also has a remote control function, which lets you operate the TV and navigate the Smart Hub menus from your phone or tablet. Once you've installed and launched the app onto your smartphone or tablet, it will prompt you to connect to the same network as the TV. The app will then have you select the TV from a list of devices to connect for sharing. On the TV, you will be asked to allow sharing, so select Yes using the TV remote. Once your device and the TV are paired, simply select the photos, movies or music from your phone using either the television's on-screen menu or your device's on-screen menu. You can also select Mirroring to duplicate your device's display on the TV. You also can use the phone or tablet as a remote control for the TV, with all of the LG Magic Remote functions available through the touch screen.

  9. For anyone that has browsed the LG website, you may have noticed random links to LG's feedback form which is powered by CVENT. The direct link is below: http://www.cvent.com/d/hfqr24
  10. You posted 2 topics that are the same, which I merged for you.
  11. 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.

  13. 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!
  14. Please do not post duplicate topics. Your other (same) topic has been removed. Thank you.
  15. 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/
  16. Palm makes a comeback! TCL to 're-create' the brand - The Chinese consumer-electronics company wants to resurrect a once-beloved smartphone brand. LAS VEGAS -- The Palm name, once a leader in the smartphone world, gets another chance at life thanks to Chinese consumer-electronics company TCL. TCL said on Tuesday that it had acquired the rights to the Palm name and would "re-create" a new company based in Silicon Valley. The company added that it would use input from Palm's fan base, touting that it would be the largest crowd-sourced project in the industry. TCL has been attempting to build up its brand and awareness in the US. The company is largely known for selling low-cost televisions, but it also has a mobile-device division, which uses the Alcatel OneTouch name. By utilizing the Palm name, which has a long history in the mobile world with the original Treo and Pilot handhelds, and later the WebOS-powered Pre, TCL is attempting to make a splash. TCL's deal follows Lenovo's much splashier acquisition of another storied mobile company, Motorola, as a way to break into more-developed markets like the US. Palm, however, has been an inactive brand while Motorola was still selling phones before the deal. Still, there may be some nostalgia factor left that could help with TCL's profile. "Palm has always carried a lot of affect and emotions," the company said in a statement. The company said it would provide more details and a timeline of the project at a later date. TCL acquired the name from Hewlett-Packard, which acquired Palm in 2010 with the grand vision of utilizing its WebOS mobile operating system across many products. HP ultimately mothballed its consumer mobile ambitions. TCL isn't likely to use WebOS. In 2013, LG purchased the WebOS platform, which now powers its smart televisions. TCL intends to use the Palm name for smartphones, but it's unclear how the company will juggle the Palm name with Alcatel OneTouch, which is making its own push to increase its visibility in the US. Source: http://www.cnet.com/news/palm-makes-a-comeback-tcl-to-recreate-the-brand/ So here is the question....what Palm gadgets will we see and what OS will they use? Will it be Open webOS, LuneOS, some form of open source webOS, Android? We'll have to wait and see, but for all you palm webOS fans and die hard webOS original adopters, this may bring back some nostalgia. I myself owned 2 pixis, a pre and pre2, and also still have my Touchpad!
  17. 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.

  20. 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

Sling TV – now available on 2017 LG OLED and LG SUPER UHD webOS 3.5-enabled smart TVs – is the first of its kind to offer live and on-demand OTT television services, including general market, Latino and International live and on-demand programming. The 2017 LG OLED and LG SUPER UHD TVs feature webOS 3.5, the latest version of LG's award-winning smart TV platform, which makes switching between content options – including broadcast TV, streaming services and external devices – simple and fast. With the LG Magic Remote and refined launcher bar, viewers have access to a limitless world of premium content – including 4K Ultra HD and high dynamic range (HDR) streaming content – from the most popular entertainment providers including Netflix, Amazon Video and Vudu, as well as Sling TV and Channel Plus. "The addition of Sling TV and more Channel Plus content provides LG OLED and LG SUPER UHD TV owners access to a robust slate of live TV and on-demand content," said Matt Durgin, LG Electronics USA's director of content innovation. "With literally hundreds of channels from top-tier content providers at their fingertips via our webOS smart TV platform, consumers can enjoy the content they love when they want to see it and on some of the top-rated TVs on the market." Channel Plus Powered by XUMO, Channel Plus is a unique, intuitive streaming service integrated into 2016 and 2017 LG smart TVs running webOS 3.0 and 3.5. Channel Plus delivers both live and on-demand streaming content through an innovative interface that presents over-the-air broadcast channels alongside over-the-top (OTT) streaming channels. "The innovation behind seamlessly merging 100 different linearly programmed OTT streams with the traditional channel lineup provides a remarkable value-add for LG customers," said Stefan Van Engen, XUMO's senior vice president of content programming and acquisitions. "The increased distribution and easy discovery of new content and channels on webOS makes Channel Plus a solution that directly aligns with the strategic distribution plans of our digital-first partners."
