Adding Apple TV app to LG web os


philipworthington

Question

Could some one give me a step by step guide to installing Apple TV app?  I know that there are a lot of features on the LG web os, and I'm gradually finding my way around and trying to use Magic remote, but would be very grateful for a reply.  I'm 65 and I'm not that techy.  I long for the days when you would get a physical manual!  Thanks.

@philipworthington Is this a new LG TV? Please post the model you have, and what country you reside in, as not all countries have it yet.

I understood though, that the Apple TV APP was coming to new models this year, so if not pre-installed in the TV APP list already (along the bottom, scroll left and rigth to see what is there), look in the LG STORE, and scroll down to see if you can install it. You will need to set up an account of course, once you install it.

Thanks for your reply.  I live in London, UK.  The model LG we have is web os lm630bpla. We just bought it a couple of months ago.. As you suggested, I went to the LG store on TV, but there was no Apple app.  It's possible that we may have to wait for it's release here, so I will wait a bit.  I'll also try and contact LG here when I get time.  Thanks very much for your reply and I hope you and yours are well.

Regards ,

Philip

@philipworthington Glad to be of help, I always find useful info on here, and other users experience, and I often learn something new each time, so it is a useful forum.

From this link:

I saw this bit, and it seems that the premium OLED TV's might get the Apple TV APP first:

"LG TV customers can now enjoy Apple TV in addition to AirPlay 2 and HomeKit on all of LG’s 2019 OLED TVs, NanoCell TVs (series SM9X and SM8X) and later this month, the Apple TV app will roll out on select UHD TVs (series UM7X and UM6X). The Apple TV app and Apple TV+ will be available on 2020 TVs at launch and on LG’s 2018 TVs later this year via an over-the-air firmware upgrade."  NOTE: yours is a 2019 model

However, while waiting for it to arrive (ensure you have a good WiFi connection for firmware updates and app updates), see if this new "LG Channels" app is available (a partnership between LG and Xumo), as it might suffice in the meantime.

Check on the forum here to see if anyone knows what range of LG it is on (I cannot get it on my old 2014 model, but it MIGHT be available on yours now, being a current model)
