Here's my question :

 

 

Dear Sir,

I recently heard that LG developped a brand new interface for its Smart TVs.
I currently have a recent 47LA620s that I bought less than 4 months ago.
The current user interface that I have is this one :

When will my Smart TV receive an update to the latest WebOS user interface ?
( )

Thank you in advance.

Yours faithfully,
--- -------.

 

 

And here's their response :

 

Hello Mr. ---. 

 
We acknowledge receipt of your email. 
 
We inform you that the WebOS update for your 47la620s TV will be available in June.
 
 
We remain at your disposal for any further request. 
Please accept, Sir, the assurances of our highest consideration.

HI Alex I know it's great news, I've just fired of some questions my self to LG asking about webOS and the current range of 2013 TV'S, hopefully all 2013 duel core processors tv's should receive the webOS update after all it makes sense if LG want to keep their customers coming back and buying more of their range. I'll be picking up a 4k tv at the end of the year so if they want my returning business they hopefully won't leave their existing customers out of any future software updates.

I 've  sent a mail to LG UK customer support asking when will they update 2013 models to WebOs.

Here is the reply:

"Thank you for your query regarding your 42LA660V

After looking into your query, I can confirm that the new WEBOS operating for our 2014 LG Smart TV's is unique to them and that it requires certain hardware capabilities in order to work. The requirements are not met by the LA or LN ranges of TV's as they are 2013 models and have different hardware in them.
It is not a matter of a software update but actually changing the hardware inside the TV which is not possible.

Therefore, I can confirm that it the WEBOS system will not be being released for your model of TV, unfortunately.

I hope my email has answered your query and assisted you today; I would really appreciate your feedback. Please help us to improve our customer service by completing the short survey after this email.

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards "

 

So ... that's that! :(

Hello Mr. ------- ---. 
 
In response to your mail on 12-05-2014 concerning an update for your TV to the WebOS interface.
Please do not take into account our response.
This is due to an error in our services, because only the TV models that have been released in 2014 will receive this update.
Currently, there's not any update planned to 2013 models.
 
We remain at your disposal for any further request. 
Please accept, Sir, the assurances of our highest consideration.

 

well... 'kay...

 

 

That's kinda funny, this time I didn't had the "quality-survey-thing"

Hello All !

I was certain it was an error

TV with NETCAST (2012, 2013 & 2014) platform could not become WebOS platform with a simple S/W up-dating!...
This is not possible due to the hardware difference (RAM, processor etc ...)

 

bye

Dear NICNL
I am sure your last Post is not really exact and I suppose it's an error of translation when you wrote:" only the TV models that have been released in 2014 will receive this update"
I am sure there is no update between NETCAST and WEBOS.
LG SMART TV with netcast stays in NETCAST platform
LG SMART TV with WEBOS stays in WEBOS Platform

there is no relation between this 2 Platform.

      Coming to Earlier LG Smart TV Models, webOS Re:New Program Gives More Users
      Access to the Elevated Home Entertainment Experience Most Recent Platform Provides

      SEOUL, Jan. 4, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) announced that it is offering the latest upgrade* of the webOS smart TV platform to owners of older LG Smart TVs, effectively evolving their smart TV into the ultimate home entertainment hub.
      In early 2024, the webOS Re:New program will bring the latest webOS upgrade to every model in LG’s 2022 OLED TV lineup, LG OLED Flex, LG OLED Objet Collection Posé as well as LG’s 2022 QNED Mini LED 8K (QNED99/95 series), promising users the joy of a new TV experience for the next five years. This upgrade will be extended to more LG TVs worldwide in the future to add more entertainment and versatility to the TV experience across the world.
      With the latest version of webOS, LG Smart TV owners can enjoy an even more personalized TV experience with a Home Screen that greets users with recommendations according to their tastes. The user interface is highly customizable, which means viewers can personalize the selection of content and services and access them with even greater ease. And to make the process even more seamless, the Quick Card UI intuitively sorts diverse content and services into categories like music, games and sports within a user-centric interface that resembles mobile user interface design.
      What’s more, courtesy of advanced security technology and an optimized operating system, users are protected with a high level of stability, security and seamlessness throughout the entire viewing experience.
      With more LG Smart TVs adopting the latest webOS upgrade, content providers and service developers will have more opportunities to spread new content, services and features to a wider audience.
      LG has shared its bold vision to become a media and entertainment platform, a business transformation that will enrich customers’ lives by delivering valuable services and a unique collection of curated content across its wide-ranging products. Powering more than 200 million LG Smart TVs worldwide, webOS will continue to evolve through significant upgrades to constantly revolutionize the customer experience. LG is poised to invest heavily in its webOS business to secure a vast library of content and services so that it can cater to the diverse lifestyles and preferences of consumers, strengthening its competitive edge in content selection and convenience.
