      Discovery+, the company’s subscription streaming service, is filling in some holes in its distribution lineup through a new agreement with LG.
      The app is now available on LG smart TVs in the U.S. including the company’s lineup of OLED TVs and QNED MiniLED TVs dating back to 2018 models. Users can now access discovery+ on LG’s webOS platform by saying "discovery plus" into their LG Magic Remote.
      Discovery+, which sells for $4.99 per month or $6.99 per month with no ads, is also available on Android and iOS devices, Android TV, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung and Xbox.
      "We are thrilled to expand the availability of discovery+ and provide LG customers a direct and easy way to stream our much-loved brands, series and talent," said Gabriel Sauerhoff, senior vice president of digital distribution and commercial partnerships for Discovery, Inc., in a statement. "The announcement of discovery+ on LG Smart TVs builds upon our existing relationship with a valued partner, and we look forward to the continued growth of discovery+ and reaching more fans around the world."
      The launch on LG TVs comes just one day after Discovery announced that Discovery+ will be available in Canada beginning October 18. The service will be priced at Can$4.99 per month, with an ad-free version available for Can$6.99 per month, and each account will include up to five user profiles and four concurrent streams.
      Discovery Inc. is currently in the process of merging with WarnerMedia, which will be spun off from AT&T. In August, Discovery CEO David Zaslav said he was recently in Washington, D.C. and didn’t pick up on any potential headwinds for the deal that will bring together HBO Max and Discovery+ under one banner.
      “There’s broad support for this transaction. We haven’t heard any pushback, we haven’t seen any public pushback,” he said. “Right now, it feels for us on every level like we’re seeing green lights. We’re not seeing any yellow or red lights.”
      Discovery and AT&T expect the deal to close by mid-2022.

      In a unique initiative to address food insecurity and spread kindness across the United States, LG is working with global nonprofit Lasagna Love to positively impact communities by connecting neighbors through homemade lasagnas.
      LG USA enlisted the help of celebrity chefs and foodies to kick off the . They will be pitching in to bake lasagnas and posting their experience across their social media channels to inspire others to volunteer and keep the cooking challenge going.

      The campaign, which launched on Nov. 8 in time for the season of giving, has a goal of delivering 15,000 meals and connecting people in their communities throughout the USA. The social media campaign encourages others to join Lasagna Love’s mission of addressing the incredible rise in food insecurity among families and providing a simple act of kindness to those in need of a helping hand.

      LG believes in empowering home cooks and providing them with the innovative tools they need to make the most of their time in the kitchen. Through the partnership with Lasagna Love, LG will be sharing recipes and cooking tips for LG’s InstaView ranges to motivate consumers to get involved and give them all the tools they need to make and gift the perfect lasagna.

      “We’ve all been in a place of needing support, whether it’s a family struggling with food insecurity, a neighbor feeling isolated, or a friend who could use a little encouragement, we hope to inspire others this holiday season to spread Lasagna Love’s mission and connect people in their communities,” says Gail Conroy, senior director of marketing, LG Electronics USA.

      Lasagna Love’s mission is simple: feed families, spread kindness and strengthen communities. According to CEO and Founder Rhiannon Menn, “Lasagna Love was created through the simple act of one family making a home-cooked meal for another family in need. As we continue to scale our mission of spreading kindness, what’s most inspiring is how we’re making life a little better not only for the families receiving a meal, but also for the volunteers who are cooking.
      “We’re thrilled to be partnering with an innovative company like LG that truly understands the power in this one simple act of kindness and wants to help us reach even further,” she says.

      According to a conducted by the career website Indeed, 73 percent of respondents replied that they missed socializing with colleagues while working remotely. Given that some aspects of remote working may be around for the long term, LG and came up with a creative way to bring remote LG workers – as well as friends and family – together to promote teamwork and camaraderie in the spirit of healthy competition.

      The LG UltraGear LoL Cup tournament invited LG Electronics’ employees and their families to battle it out in the globally popular online multiplayer game, . The event gave LG employees of all ages and locations the opportunity to connect with one another and experience the culture of esports. The event included free coaching sessions courtesy of Gen.G Global Academy and gave all gamers the opportunity to experience LG’s latest products.

      The tournament ran from August to October, attracting a total of 68 teams consisting of 340 players. Winners received gaming-related prizes including UltraGear laptops, monitors and speakers. The event included a “family camp” with the purpose of creating lasting memories with gaming as the backdrop. Gaming and non-gaming staff alike could take part in a number of activities, such as League of Legends classes for kids, lively talk shows and live broadcasts featuring eports legends.

      As long-time supporter of esports, the tournament was another creative way for LG to introduce more people to the exciting world of gaming. Through its partnership with Gen.G, one of the most influential esports organizations in the world, LG has been able to connect to the top gamers in the world to get their valued input on new UltraGear gaming products under development. The respect LG has for its gaming fans is reciprocated in kind.
      Esports are no longer just for serious gamers or a hobby for only Millennials and Gen Z. The growing esports audience is expected to reach approximately globally by 2024. With dedicated TV channels and platforms such as Twitch, Periscope and Smashcast, gaming content has already surpassed many traditional sports in terms of popularity.

      “Through esports, we’re able to bring coworkers together and experience teamwork in more creative ways,” said Kim Jung-jin, a member of the winning team. “We have new opportunities to meet colleagues from different departments across all strata of the company. Fostering that sense of unity is very important for everyone’s wellbeing.”
      “I particularly loved the education sessions, where my son and I learned the basics of League of Legends,” said Woo Jung-ho, another participant. “The tournament has really sparked my interest in gaming and changed my perception to gaming culture. I used to think gaming was just for the younger generations. I think other organizations could benefit from this kind of outside the box activity.”

      The LG UltraGear LoL Cup tournament for employees demonstrated that technology isn’t just useful for remote working but for remote family fun as well. Through this experience, LG is convinced that there are more untapped opportunities for creating lasting memories during these transformational times.
