LG smart WebOS TV sales surpass 1m mark

 

LG Electronics, one of the largest manufacturers of consumer appliances in the world, said Sunday that sales of its latest smart WebOS TVs surpassed the 1 million mark, just three months after the product reached consumers.

The company said its latest smart TV sets are sold in 45 countries around the world, with sales in North and Latin America hitting 320,000 units. Sales in Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States, or a bloc of former Soviet states, also reached 380,000 units, the company said.

The TVs that first reached the South Korean market in late February place the greatest importance on easy user experience to overcome the “excessively complicated” operating systems of existing smart TVs.

Streamlining the operating system also enhances the responsiveness and speed of LG’s WebOS vis-a-vis other products on the market, the electronics giant claimed.

LG said it aims to expand sales to 150 countries by the end of the year and wants to sell 10 million units by the first half of 2015. According to market researcher DisplaySearch, the world’s smart TV market reached 73.1 million units in 2013, with numbers likely to rise to over 83.2 million this year. (Yonhap)

    • Question: gigabit ethernet on smart TV

      Hello, Is there any way of installing an usb gigabit network adapter on a webos smart TV?  The builtin wired adapter is only 100mbps (on a 2000$+ TV, shame  on you LG!!!)  while the wifi (N) is very poor, with the router at 1m from TV it only gets half the bandwidth of the wired network. Anyway the wired network  maxes out near 100mbps but I need more bandwidth as I have 4k video content with bitrates grater than 100mbps which I cannot stream without stuttering to TV through XPLAY/PLEX.

    • Question: Anyone else having issues with the WebOS?

      Hi everyone, I’m new on here and just trying to figure out what is going on with my TV. It’s a 65” E8 that I purchased new back in March of last year. I never really had any issues until recently (a month or so). I updated the OS as usual and honestly didn’t pay much attention until the next day I was attempting to login to WebOS and I keep getting “LG CONTENT STORE: Content is unavailable. No content”. I always keep it updated and had Geek Squad do a calibration on it about 3 months ago; which

      I am having an updated WebOS for my LG 55" UHD SMART TV. I am having problem with my Media Library refresh. The SmartShare app on the TV keeps showing all the Videos/Movies which no longer exist on my network. When I use Device Connector however, and select only the Plex Media then I see the available Movies correctly.
       
      How to refresh or clear the Media Library on the TV... any help will be appreciated.
       
      Thanks.
      Rajeev.
