"The addition of Sling TV to our strong line-up of premium content apps on our webOS platform gives consumers an incredibly wide range of content options to enjoy on our critically-acclaimed LG Smart TVs led by LG OLED and LG Super UHD."
 

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sling TV today became the first live and on-demand over-the-top (OTT) service available on LG Electronics’ line-up of smart TVs. Sling TV now supports most 2016 webOS 3.0 Smart TV models, and will be available on LG’s 2017 webOS 3.5 enabled-models in the coming months. Sling TV continues to lead the way in device compatibility as LG joins more than 15 platforms currently supported by Sling TV, including existing smart TVs, tablets, game consoles, computers, smartphones and streaming devices.

“Even with today’s ‘always on-the-go’ lifestyle, we know watching TV from the living room is still as important to our customers as ever,” said Ben Weinberger, chief product officer of Sling TV. “Offering Sling TV on LG’s award-winning, top-of-the-line smart TVs gives viewers more control over how they watch Sling TV so they can view their favorite programs without the need for additional devices or unnecessary input-switching.”

“Joining forces with Sling TV to include their robust slate of live TV and on-demand content further expands the offerings in our webOS 3.5 and 3.0 Smart TVs,” said Matt Durgin, Director of Content Innovation, LG Electronics USA. “The addition of Sling TV to our strong line-up of premium content apps on our webOS platform gives consumers an incredibly wide range of content options to enjoy on our critically-acclaimed LG Smart TVs led by LG OLED and LG Super UHD.”

Starting today, current Sling TV subscribers can log in to their accounts on most 2016 LG Smart TV webOS 3.0 models. Internet connection and Sling TV app download required for access to service. Customers new to Sling TV may create their own entertainment experience, starting at $20 per month for Sling Orange or $25 per month for Sling Blue, directly from compatible LG Smart TVs, including some of the most popular sporting events, breaking news, TV series, movies and more, at an industry-leading price.

As of today, it's still not available for WebOS 3.5. I can't imagine what the wait is for. I will tell you though that having to piggyback through a device (like the free Roku 4k SlingTV sent me) is a terrible option. The LG 3.5 interface is so responsive, colorful, and interactive with the magic remote that going to the slow Roku remote and the terrible interface was a let down. I cancelled my SlingTV subscription on April 19th and I'm hoping the WebOS 3.5 version comes out by football season :)

For those who've tried SlingTV on WebOS 3.0, what's your thoughts?

Good news... some time over the past week Sling TV showed up on WebOS 3.5. In fact I think it auto-installed to the TV and there are advertisements in the sidebar. So looks like I'll be giving it a try this football season.
