Have you ever wondered how many LG OLED TVs are shipped every year? 100 thousand units perhaps, maybe as much as a million? In the first half of 2023, LG recorded over 1.33 million shipments of its stunning OLED TVs, setting new benchmarks and records its competitors can only dream of.
According to market research firm

As a renowned OLED TV leader now celebrating 10 years of innovation in this space, LG has once again defended its premium TV crown while further cementing LG OLED TV’s status as the pinnacle of premium TVs.
The “bigger the better” trend continues to prevail in the TV market, which is great news for LG. As more and more people desire larger TVs for their living spaces, models of 75 inches or larger accounted for a remarkable 11.4 percent share of total OLED TVs sold, while shipments’ yearly average growth rate topped 90 percent over the past five years. Staying on top of this growing trend, LG is resuming its dominance in the market with an outstanding 64.2 percent share in total shipments of OLED TVs over 75 inches.
LG is targeting this new demand for large and premium TVs in the second half of 2023 with the groundbreaking TV (model 97M3) it unveiled in July, which boasts the world’s first 4K 120Hz wireless solution that makes it easy for customers to achieve their dream interior.
Not one to be confined, LG unleashed a tidal wave of 10 million TV units (OLED and LCD) on the world, which has helped the company carve out a 16.2 percent share of revenue for itself in the global TV market.
Despite facing a downturn in the global TV market, LG persisted in strengthening its inventory management and securing higher profits while actively pursuing a strategic approach for its premium and ultra-large displays. And this commitment has paid off substantially, with its LG OLED TVs now accounting for around 30 percent of the company’s overall revenue generated from TV sets.
TV shipments totaled over 92 million units in the first half of 2023, matching last year’s first half performance. The OLED TV segment, which has been led by LG for a number of years, has already passed the 2 million shipments mark this year, which bodes well for the rest of 2023.
OLED TVs are continuing their takeover of the global TV market after capturing 9.3 percent of all revenue in the first half. Meanwhile, Omdia predicts that OLED TVs are set to shine even brighter, projecting at least a 43 percent revenue share among premium TVs priced above USD 1,500.

Company Unveils Latest LG OLED ART Collaborations During
This Year’s Frieze International Air Fair and Seoul Art Week
SEOUL, Sep. 6, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) is stepping into the spotlight as the official headline partner of Frieze Seoul 2023 (September 6-9). The company will be showcasing special art collaborations that reaffirm its dedication to highlighting the intrinsic link between art and technology as a part of its ongoing LG OLED ART project. For this year’s edition of Frieze Seoul, LG is partnering with the Whanki Foundation to present “We Meet Again in Seoul,” a curated selection of paintings by master of Korean abstract art, Kim Whanki.
The stunning exhibition features twelve original artworks by Whanki, including some of his most iconic pieces. Among these are Where, in What Form, Shall We Meet Again and 25-III-69 #46, created during his noted New York periods – both paintings exemplifying the artist’s unique “all-over dot” style. These works will be on display in the LG OLED Lounge at Frieze Seoul 2023, where they will be brought to life by the immaculate digital canvas that is LG OLED. The incredible colors and clarity of LG’s self-lit OLED technology faithfully preserve Whanki’s creative intentions while revealing detail and nuance that add an extra dimension to his acclaimed art.
Audiences will find themselves completely immersed in and inspired by this exclusive presentation; the combination of Whanki’s artistic genius and the digital artistry of LG OLED combining to elicit profound emotions and deep contemplation.
Additionally, visitors to the LG OLED Lounge will have the opportunity to explore exciting, new perspectives on the distinctive and thought-provoking art of Whanki. Je Baak, professor at Seoul National University College of Fine Arts, Mano Ahn, CEO of Ahn Graphics and Kim Dae-hwan, CEO of BESIGN, have joined forces to digitally express five of Whanki’s artworks, using LG OLED as their canvas.
“LG OLED is honored to present the work of the renowned Kim Whanki to a global audience at this year’s Frieze Seoul,” said Kate Hye-won Oh, vice president of the Brand Communication Division at LG Home Entertainment Company. “Both the stunning originals and the brave digital reinterpretations of Whanki’s paintings inspire the imagination and encourage all of us, whether artist or art enthusiast, to explore the limitless possibilities of art. The ultimate digital canvas, LG OLED continues to shine a light on the majesty of human creative endeavor, and what can be achieved when art and technology come together as one.”
Beyond its participation in Frieze Seoul 2023, LG OLED will be actively contributing to the artistic ambiance of the South Korean capital throughout the month of September. At Seoul Light DDP 2023 (August 31 to September 10), LG’s premium TV brand is presenting BOREALIS, an illuminating and ever-changing work of light and color by technologist and new media artist Dan Acher, which can be experienced daily between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. The collaboration is a testament to LG OLED’s continuing support for Seoul Art Week (taking place this year from September 1-10) and to its commitment to promoting the practice and appreciation of new forms of digital art.
LG OLED has also teamed up with Artist Company, a Seoul-based entertainment company founded by celebrated Korean actor, Lee Jung-jae, to expose a wider audience to the best of digital art. From September 7-24, the first floor of the Artist’s Company’s building in Cheongdam will play host to several inspirational works, including digitalized Whanki pieces and art from Six N. Five, previously showcased by LG OLED at Frieze New York in May.
LG continues to deliver enriching art world experiences, illustrating the close connection between art and technology through inspiring exhibitions and innovative artist collaborations. The digital artworks brought to life by LG OLED will be uploaded to the OLED Art project website after their real-world unveiling, allowing art enthusiasts and fans around the world to enjoy them at their convenience.

Is there a way to fix this? There's a Samsung smart tv in my household that windows 7 recognizes and can cast to, but the LG WEBOS OLED TV is not even discoverable on the network and it is connected to WiFi. I know this tv is connected because in order to use AirPlay you have to be on the same WiFi. All my devices use the same WiFi connection. I can see all my devices except for the LG TV.

Many apps will bring up an alphabetised layout of keys rather than the more conventional QWERTY keyboard.
Is there a way of overriding this so that a conventional QWERTY layout can be used?
