FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

US ROLLOUT OF ALEXA ON 2019 LG AI THINQ TVs UNDERWAY

Popular AI Voice Service Will Be Activated on 2019 LG TVs with AI ThinQ

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J, May 29, 2019 — LG Electronics USA has begun rolling out activation of Amazon Alexa built-in to its 2019 TV models that feature artificial intelligence. The update, which will begin going live today, will be implemented through the Alexa app installed on LG UHD, NanoCell and OLED TVs with AI ThinQ®. Activation is expected to phase in over the next few weeks.

“The addition of Alexa to our 2019 AI TVs makes LG the only TV brand that comes equipped both voice assistant platforms” said Tim Alessi, head of home entertainment product marketing at LG Electronics USA. “LG is always focused on delivering the most diverse range of services. The arrival of Alexa on our 2019 TVs delivers a new level of simplicity and convenience to the lives of our customers.”

Following the introduction of the Google Assistant on 2018 LG TVs with AI ThinQ, LG is delivering more choices and options with the addition of Amazon Alexa capabilities to its 2019 TVs with AI ThinQ. With the Alexa app, owners of compatible LG TVs can ask questions, control smart home products, access over 90,000 Alexa Skills and more, all without the need for a separate external device. LG’s 2019 TVs can also understand hundreds of voice commands and handle requests of greater complexity than ever before, thanks to more advanced LG ThinQ AI conversational voice recognition technology.

With Alexa Routines, users can link together a series of actions, such as, providing traffic information, reporting the weather and listing the day’s agenda items, simply by saying “Alexa, start my morning.” They can also play music or audio books and take advantage of the numerous skills already available on the Alexa platform. Since Alexa www.LG.com 2 is built-in, new updates and features for the voice service will continue to be available to LG AI TV owners moving forward.

      New to LG WebOS. Cannot sign into my Amazon.com account. Keep getting password error even though I am 100% sure I entered the correct user id and password. Is this a know issue, or some settings I need to change on my TV?

      How can I listen to my Amazon Prime Music on my tv
    • By ricecooker
      This is a brand new set, first 2 days was fine. Today after an update, I would play a youtube video and audio drops out totally after around 5 mins in. Video still plays, just no audio. Also happens when watching amazon prime. Also sometimes on amazon prime it just crashes and brings me to HDMI 4 screen (I got a nintendo switch plugged in there, but not turned on). It's frustrating to say the least, could someone please help me with this?

      LG has unveiled the pricing and release plans for some of its 2019 OLED TV lineup, basically mirroring the company’s playbook from last year. These are some of the very best TVs you can buy, so LG is continuing to price them as such.
      The 2019 C9 (65-inch, 55-inch) and E9 (65-inch) series TVs will start shipping in April. The 77-inch model of the C9 and 55-inch E9 will hit stores a bit later in May and June, respectively. And this year’s update to LG’s “wallpaper” TVs — to be available in 65- and 75-inch sizes — will come out in June.
      (If you were wondering, no, there’s still not at a firm price or release date for the stunning rollable TV.)
      LG’s TV branding can be pretty confusing, but all of these TVs fundamentally share the same display quality and the latest features that the company first announced at CES: that includes AirPlay 2, built-in support for Amazon Alexa voice commands, improved image processing, and more. LG claims itself as the only major TV manufacturer offering both Alexa and Google Assistant out of the box, whereas some other brands (Samsung, Roku TVs, etc.) only support them through external speakers you might already own.

      The TVs also feature HDMI 2.1, future-proofing them for any content (and just about any frame rate) that might be coming down the pipe over the next several years.
      But they differ in what’s around the screen; the E9 series has glass on all four sides, most noticeably at the bottom. The C9 doesn’t get quite that fancy. And the W9 (wallpaper) series puts the same display into a design that’s almost unfathomably thin.
      LG has said only its 2019 TVs will gain AirPlay 2 and HomeKit functionality; other TV makers including Samsung and Vizio are also adding the useful feature to their older sets. It’d be nice if the company would reconsider this, but I’m not holding out hope.

      Below are the prices and release months for the C9, E9, and W9 LG OLED ThinQ TVs. I’d advise against buying them soon after launch, as LG’s OLEDs tend to see big markdowns near the end of the year.
      LG C9 OLED 4K TVs:
      77-inch: $6,999 (May)
      65-inch: $3,499 (April)
      55-inch: $2,499 (April)
      LG E9 OLED 4K TVs:
      65-inch: $4,299 (April)
      55-inch: $3,299 (June)
      LG W9 Wallpaper OLED 4K TVs:
      77-inch: $12,999 (June)
      65-inch: $6,999 (June)
