Can we extend this functionality to TVs manufactured in 2017 ?  My 65" OLED TV was manufactured in Dec 2017 - and wasn't put into use until 2018.   The TVs not that old. 

 

Just saw this post and yes my LG B7 manufactured in Nov. 2017 has the Disney+ app.

The silence from LG WEBOS Administrators on extending this update to LG OLED TVs manufactured in 2017 is deafening.  I can't imagine it is a very big effort (if there is any effort at all) in extending the AppleTV+ application to 2017 models.  If the rationale is to "force" us to buy a newer OLED I believe LG will find this has backfired.  We bought LG OLED for both the great picture AND service.  It feels like LG is letting us down.

@montycs You are not alone in thinking that because of the site name used here, that it is an arm of LG.

Sorry to dissappoint you, but this is ONLY a peer-to-peer help/advice forum for enhusiasts who own and use LG TV's, concentrating on the LG WebOS functionality, update issues, usage issues, possible bug workarounds etc. This site has NO input into LG itself, and NO business conection, and NO lobbying or support request capability.

So, THAT is why there is silence, THIS IS NOT LG - you had best contact your local LG support in your country, and see if you can get any response from your questions on this matter. 

Apologies though, if I have mis-interpreted your post, and you are just venting on here about LG.

      Our current app is available on 4K/UHD LG television models running the following system software:
      webOS 3.0 webOS 3.5 webOS 4.0 webOS 5.0 No 720p or 1080p (“full HD”) sets are supported for our current app at this time.
      Note: Due to root certificate limitations with the device OS itself, only webOS 5.0+ devices support secure connections with a personal Plex Media Server. To allow connections to a personal server, devices running earlier webOS versions must be set to Allow Insecure Connections in the TV app settings and the Plex Media Server must be set to Preferred for the Secure Connections preference.

      Hi.
      When Im playing a movie in an app on my LG OLED TV the screen is turned off after 15 minutter and only showing for the lack of other words its "digital fireworks» and the text "Turn on screen by pressing any button on remote except power button».
      Its really annoying. 
      Every power/eco mode is off and no timer is active?
      Anyone?

      Hi, I'm looking for a pair of Bluetooth headphones to use with an LG 65sm8600pta TV. A lot of headphone reviews talk about the importance of the aptx standard/codec in making sure there is no lag in audio and to keep the picture and audio in sync. The manual for my TV says only that it supports LGs proprietary 'sound sync' standard. I can't find any headphones that have that compatibility. Does anyone know if LG TVs support aptx, and if not, what is the best way to make sure I don't spend $300 on good over ear headphones but I can't get them to sync?

      Apple has been rolling out the Apple TV app to many different platforms, including smart TVs, games consoles, and third-party streaming devices like the Amazon Fire Stick or Roku streaming sticks.
      In a slight twist, the company is also launching a ‘Apple TV+’ app for older LG webOS TVs. Update: The TV+ app is also now available on older Samsung smart TV models.
      The launch was first spotted by FlatpanelsHD, and later confirmed by an LG support document.
      The standard Apple TV app is available on 2018 and newer LG webOS TVs. This special Apple TV+ app is targeted at 2016 and 2017 models.
      Although the name and logo is different, the actual app experience appears identical to the TV app — except that you can only watch TV+ content. The Watch Now and other iTunes Store tabs are simply missing.
      Somewhat comically, that means this app has just three tabs in the top navigation — Apple TV+, Search and Settings. It also means that the Up Next functionality previously found in the Watch Now tab is now awkwardly located as an inline row at the top of the tv+ page.
      It is true that many proponents of Apple TV+ — including me — have wanted less focus on the iTunes Store in the TV app in order to focus on the content available to us with the subscription, but this particular stripped-down incarnation is not quite what we had in mind.

      It worked for 2 minutes and now I can't get it working again. Tried power cycling it, no dice. Also casting from Youtube is terribly unstable.
      I'm running 03.10.60 of the LG webOS software is that helps and on 14.2.1 on my iPhone 12 Pro Max
      Could it be that my TV is faulty?

      I'm not sure if this is an LG or Apple issue, or if I have to try a different HDMI cable (the package says it's the latest standard) but here's what I've seen so far:
      I have the AppleTV 4k using Dolby Vision which looks great.
      1. When using the AppleTV remote to turn on the AppleTV and LG TV (using LG Simplink), sometimes the video signal is messed up – it's blurry and out of sync. Changing the input to Live TV and then back to the AppleTV fixes it. Sometimes it just works right away.
      2. When using the LG remote to turn on the TV, then switching to the AppleTV the LG Magic remote automatically controls the AppleTV! This is really cool except that if I switch to Live TV then back to the Apple TV, the LG Magic remote no longer controls the AppleTV.
      3. I have the AppleTV 4k behind the LG TV but the range on the AppleTV Remote is greatly reduced and stutters at about 10 feet away from the TV. I have moved the AppleTV to the bottom edge of the TV so it's not visibly noticeable but the range bluetooth is still terrible. Anyone else try to put the AppleTV behind the TV to hide it? Any success with the remote distance? Is there a safe place behind the TV to put it?
      I actually don't have any 4K movies on Apple TV... none of my purchases are in 4k (like James Bond and Disney movies, and a few others). The Vudu AppleTV app is currently not 4k, I heard Netflix is but I don't subscribe to it. The SlingTV app on AppleTV has a nicer interface and is more reliable than the LG app. ESPN has a very configurable multi-view so you can watch 1-4 ESPN programs at the same time. I'll have to buy another HDMI cable to see if that fixes the sync and remote issues.
      Anyone else try an AppleTV 4k? Likes? Dislikes?
