Since being appointed to the role of LG CEO, William Cho has made changes internally and on the company’s business portfolio. What’s more, the CEO has taken the time to visit LG local offices and production sites in person around the globe. In the first half of the year alone, Mr. Cho already visited a total of 12 countries across Europe, Asia, the Middle East and North, Central and South America, traveling a total of 145,000 km – equivalent to three and a half laps around the globe.
At the start of June, CEO Cho visited Saudi Arabia, where he first toured the exhibition hall in Riyadh showcasing the NEOM City Project. There, the CEO was introduced to business opportunities in three projects: ‘The Line,’ a 170km-long eco-friendly vertical city; ‘Oxagon,’ an octagonal high-tech industrial floating complex; and ‘Trojena,’ an iconic mountain resort. Following an in-depth discussion on the NEOM projects, the CEO attended a management meeting to discuss mid- to long-term business strategies in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region.
“LG will secure various business opportunities in a wide range of fields such as mobility, air solutions and commercial displays as well as home appliances, TVs and IT for the NEOM City project by leveraging the company’s innovative technology accumulated over the years,” said CEO Cho.
The CEO then toured the company’s air solutions factory in Riyadh, the production base of the company’s premium air conditioners equipped with high-efficiency parts. With excellent cooling performance and high energy efficiency, LG’s air solution products are optimal across the MEA region, where there is a high demand for air conditioners due to the year-round hot climate.
“Our presence in Saudi Arabia is of utmost importance, even on a global scale. Our local factory aligns with the Saudi Vision 2030 and plays a core role in producing green energy level products while forming the central production base for the region, exporting to up to 16 countries in the middle east and Asia,” said Mr. Cho. “LG will keep taking initiatives to achieve sustainable growth as well as further strengthen the company’s position as a market leader.”
The CEO’s next destination was India, the world’s most populace nation and a market of growing importance for LG, where the CEO addressed local staff about the company’s future direction.
LG’s Indian subsidiary, celebrating its 26th anniversary this year, has achieved a dominant position in the Indian market by strengthening its infrastructure – establishing a locally-complete business that encompasses sales and production subsidiaries and R&D centers.
In India, Mr. Cho visited LG brand stores, R&D centers and home appliance and TV production lines, witnessing local operations in action and learning about the strategies the subsidiary is employing to boost business competitiveness and secure future growth engines.
CEO Cho’s first stop was the New Delhi sales subsidiary, where he spoke with key staff members about new business opportunities, such as electric vehicle charging solutions and EduTech utilizing digital whiteboard and IT solutions.
“In India, which boasts a large market and considerable growth potential, the company will build on its No. 1 market share and strategically develop future businesses,” said Mr. Cho.
Speaking with local personnel, CEO Cho also stressed the importance of the brand’s growth in online commerce. LG is targeting increased online sales in India through implementing a differentiated digital strategy founded on a deep understanding of, and empathy for, Indian culture. Earlier this year, responding to the soaring popularity of online shopping in India, the company established an online brand shop (OBS) and launched a direct-to-consumer (D2C) business.
CEO Cho’s Indian itinerary also included the cities of Noida and Pune, where he examined the company’s home appliance and TV product lines and looked into the current status of converting it into an eco-friendly smart factory. LG has pledged to convert 100 percent of the energy used by all production bases around the world into renewable energy by 2025. The company will also increase investment in these two plants this year to expand their capacity to produce premium home appliances. LG washing machines, air conditioners, TVs and monitors produced in these plants are sold not only locally but exported to countries in the MEA region.

Resolving the Major Issues with LG TVs: A Comprehensive Guide
LG has gained a reputation for producing high-quality televisions that combine cutting-edge technology with sleek designs. However, like any other electronic device, LG TVs can experience issues that may affect their performance and user experience. In this article, we will explore some of the most common problems encountered with LG TVs and provide practical solutions to address them effectively.
1. Poor Picture Quality:
One of the most frustrating issues faced by LG TV owners is poor picture quality. To enhance your viewing experience, consider the following steps:
Adjust picture settings: LG TVs offer various pre-set picture modes like Standard, Cinema, or Sports. Experiment with these modes to find one that suits your preferences. Additionally, fine-tune settings such as brightness, contrast, color temperature, and backlight intensity to optimize picture quality for your viewing environment. Update firmware: Regularly check for firmware updates on LG's official website or through the TV's settings menu. Firmware updates often include performance improvements and bug fixes that can enhance picture quality. Check input source: Sometimes, the picture quality issue may be due to a poor quality input signal. Ensure that your cable, satellite, or streaming device is connected securely and functioning properly. Consider using high-quality HDMI cables for optimal performance. 2. Sound Issues:
Sound problems can detract from the immersive experience that LG TVs aim to provide. To tackle sound-related issues, try the following:
Adjust audio settings: LG TVs offer various sound modes, including Standard, Cinema, Music, and Sports. Experiment with these modes to find the one that suits your audio preferences. Additionally, adjust settings like bass, treble, balance, and surround sound to optimize your audio experience. External speakers or soundbar: If you are dissatisfied with the built-in speakers' performance, consider connecting external speakers or a soundbar to your LG TV. This can significantly enhance the audio quality and immersion. Check audio output settings: Ensure that the TV's audio output settings are correctly configured. Verify that the correct audio output, such as HDMI ARC, optical, or Bluetooth, is selected based on your audio setup. 3. Connectivity and Network Issues:
LG TVs rely heavily on connectivity features for streaming content and accessing smart features. If you encounter connectivity or network problems, try the following solutions:
Network troubleshooting: Make sure your TV is connected to a stable Wi-Fi network. Restart your router, update its firmware, or try connecting your TV using an Ethernet cable for a more stable connection. Software updates: Keep your TV's firmware and applications up to date. Regularly check for system updates in the TV's settings menu. These updates often include bug fixes and improvements that can resolve connectivity issues. Factory reset: If all else fails, performing a factory reset can help resolve persistent network issues. However, be aware that this will reset all settings and erase stored data, so make sure to back up important information beforehand. Conclusion:
While LG TVs are known for their exceptional quality, they can experience certain issues that may impact their performance. By following the solutions provided above, you can troubleshoot and resolve some of the most common issues with LG TVs, including poor picture quality, sound problems, and connectivity/network issues. Remember to consult the TV's user manual or LG's support website for specific instructions tailored to your model. With these steps, you can optimize your LG TV experience and enjoy uninterrupted entertainment.
Hallo, I bought a 55un74006LB smart tv in Italy. It seems not to have usb recording capabilities, according to the information on the italian website, but the UK site declare it has. I think it's the same product with the same functions, so how can I turn the live tv and usb recording on? I think I found the options in the service menu but I cannot change the values. Any suggestion?

LG has been recognized for its leadership and continuing dominance of the OLED TV market. Celebrating a decade of excellence and customer experience innovation this year, LG OLED remains the top choice in the premium TV segment through its unmatched contrast which enables perfect blacks and true-to-life colors, as well as its unprecedented flexibility and thinness.
According to market research firm Omdia, LG topped the OLED TV market by a landslide in the first quarter of 2023, claiming approximately 60 percent of the market by total shipments.
LG OLED TVs are currently sold in over 130 countries, making them the most widely available OLED TVs in the world. Last year, the accumulated total shipments of LG OLED TVs (since their initial launch in 2013) exceeded 15 million units; making LG the first OLED TV maker to reach this impressive milestone.
Additionally, LG accounted for more than 70 percent of the market for ultra-large OLED TVs – 70 inches and above – in the first quarter. The company is reinforcing its strong position in the ultra-large premium TV segment with industry-leading solutions such as the 97-inch LG SIGNATURE OLED M (model M3), which is the world’s first consumer TV with a wireless solution capable of real-time video and audio transmission at up to 4K 120Hz.
LG’s combined shipments of OLED TVs and LCD TVs in the first quarter were about 5.5 million units, with OLED TVs making up 738,000 of that number. Further, LG owned a 17.1 percent share of the global TV market as of first quarter 2023, by revenue.1
The company’s share of the global TV market has dipped slightly this quarter compared to the same period in 2022. This is mainly due to waning global demand and LG’s increased focus on stock risk management. However, LG OLED TV sales have remained strong, representing more than 30 percent of the company’s total TV sales in the first quarter of 2023.
Meanwhile, total global TV shipments in the first quarter reached 46.52 million units, the lowest figure recorded since the same period in 2009. However, Omdia expects a recovery in the second half of 2023 and predicts shipments to reach 205.51 million units by year-end, a slight increase from last year.
The OLED TV segment is expected to enjoy an upswing as well. Omdia projects that OLED TVs will take 46.1 percent of the premium TV market (USD 1,500 and above) by revenue1 at the end of the year; up 10 percent from 2022 (36.7 percent market share). The rapid rise of OLED TVs is expected to accelerate as a result of more brands having entered the segment in recent years.2
LG offers an increasingly diverse lineup of OLED TVs, with various screen sizes – from 42 to 97 inches – 8K and 4K options, and distinctive designs to choose from. Boasting an array of convenient and image-enhancing features, the company’s OLED TVs deliver unique customer experiences and next-level viewing immersion.
LG’s premium OLED TV lineup also includes the LG OLED evo series, which offers brighter, more lifelike images and LG Lifestyle Screens, which couple stunning picture quality with distinctive designs that add a touch of refinement to any living space. This year, the company will be expanding availability of the LG OLED Objet Collection Posé – a member of the Lifestyle Screen family – to a total of 40 countries worldwide.
LG OLED has been honored at the annually held CES Innovation Awards for 11 consecutive years3 and has received wide praise from major publications, including several “Best TV of the Year” titles and countless claims of being “the best TV I’ve ever reviewed,” “a true Marvel” and “the king of TVs.”
LG has been working tirelessly for the past decade to realize the immense potential of OLED. Building on what it has achieved so far, the company will continue to create and innovate over the next decade, exploring more of the near limitless possibilities presented by its self-lit technology to deliver ever-greater customer value.

It is easy to add a new item to the quick settings side menu on an lg c2, as long as the item you want is shown on the list presented when you choose the + add item. If you want to add a "shortcut" to an item that is not on the list then how can that be done. Is it possible to edit the list presented?
Specifically I want to add a shortcut to "subtitles on" which is buried deep in accessibility settings, there nothing on the list of options presented to allow this.
