Worldwide Viewership Set to Grow With Global UI Rollout and
Service Expansion Into New Markets
SEOUL, Sep. 19, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) is introducing LG Channels 3.0, the latest version of its exclusive, free streaming service. Featuring a new UI with improved navigation, more engaging placements for content discovery and an enhanced channel guide, users will easily be able to discover the content that resonates with them. LG Channels 3.0 is rolling out in South Korea this month, and will arrive in other markets, including US, starting in October.
LG Channels has consistently ranked among the top-five most accessed apps on LG Smart TVs across all regions where the service is offered, attracting an increasing number of viewers with its premium lineup of news, sports, movies, TV Series and exclusives.1 With its carefully curated lineup of programming, LG Channels is now set to provide upgraded usability that allows users to conveniently search, discover and enjoy their favorite content.
Reflecting the main content consumption patterns of LG Channels’ users, the new UI is organized into three pages – Home, Live and On Demand– that make it easier to take advantage of the different services offered on LG’s free content platform.
The Home page features a large, highly visible rotating carousel at the top of the screen to provide easy access to featured channels, curated collections and premium On Demand content. From the Live page, they can now play live broadcast channels directly from within the LG Channels app. Additionally, the new channel guide covers only half of the screen, allowing users to see what’s on and choose what to watch next while continuing to watch their current viewing choice.
The On Demand tab allows users to select their favorite types of content including movies, TV shows and receive recommendations from Popular Now category ensuring a smooth binge-watching experience.
Already available in 27 countries2 globally, LG is accelerating the growth of its content service by entering new territories and adding to its already impressive content lineup.

I have recently purchased an LG 43UH610T television. I am located in Bali, Indonesia. Everything seems to be working fine, but when I click on any of the options, such as LGTV, YouTube etc, it tells me I must first consent to the LG Smart TV user agreement. However, I then get a message saying "Unable to load user agreements - a server error has occurred ......"
Can you help?

I was unable to install the remote control app(on TV) after bundling with Sandstorm webdriver code. Getting below error. ares-install ERR! [com.webos.appInstallService failure]: luna-send command failed <update manifest file failed>
I have an LG C1 55 connected to a Denon x2100w AVR on HDMI 2 (arc)... It always worked perfectly... After the latest TV upgrade I can't get anymore TV audio on the AVR.
I tried disconnecting and reconnecting everything, unplugging stuff for minutes, switching multiple hdmi sources... The AVR can send data to the TV, but it doesn't see TV audio signal.
All the HDMI audio settings on the TV are greyed out and disabled.
Next thing I'll try to reset to factory defaults, but I suspect it won't fix anything...
Note this worked flawlessly for 2 years.
Ideas are welcome.
