      With online video content increasingly becoming more integrated into our daily lives, consumers are becoming even more reliant on this form of media for entertainment, information and social interaction. LG’s response to this trend is LG StanbyME, a 27-inch wireless screen with a built-in battery attached to movable stand, offering unrivalled convenience and viewing comfort to make it the ideal companion for today’s viewing habits.

      Unlike a PC, LG StanbyME is mobile, with its own battery for three hours of viewing between charges. Unlike a laptop, LG StanbyME offers a touchscreen and doesn’t require a desk or a lap. Unlike a tablet, LG StanbyME delivers content on a spacious 27-inch display.
      To celebrate the first launch of this category-busting home entertainment product outside of South Korea, the Hong Kong team at LG Electronics designed a pop-up event in Central Market last week. Redesigned in 2021 as a Playground for All, Central Market is a local landmark of culture and heritage and the ideal location for LG to introduce the product’s revolutionary design and easy-to-use features.

      The event stage was divided into four major zones – Kitchen, Living Room, Study Room and Product Island – to demonstrate how the product perfectly fits into diverse, modern lifestyle settings.

      In the Living Room zone, LG StanbyME was accompanied by LG appliances including LG CordZero A9 Kompressor vacuum cleaner and LG PuriCare Air Purifier to illustrate how its clean, sleek design easily blends into a typical living space. The screen demonstrated its ability to support a diverse selection of content via pre-installed apps from top content providers including Netflix, Disney+ and popular local content from ViuTV.

      A special live streaming section in the Study Room zone highlighted the versatility of the device’s Mobile Screen Mirroring feature using NFC. By connecting their smartphones to LG StanbyME, users can comfortably view everything on their phones on the larger display. LG StanbyME also connects to the LG ThinQ app, LG’s proprietary AI platform, to control specific functions on the display.

      With its built-in rollers and the rotatable screen that can be displayed both in vertical and horizontal orientations, LG StanbyME’s strengths in mobility and flexibility were on full display at the launch event, attracting modern cosmopolitans who are always on the lookout for uplifting personal lifestyle products that offer unique customer values and support home-centric lifestyles.

      What the guests immediately appreciated about LG StanbyME was the fact that this was a product that was designed for and during a time when consumers are reevaluating their habits when it comes to entertainment. As the world – including Hong Kong – enters the third year of a global pandemic, consumers have gotten used to the idea of entertaining themselves at home rather than frequenting cinemas and theaters.
      For these consumers, LG StanbyME couldn’t have come at a better time.

      We just purchased a new LG WebOS TV OLED 65" and running the setup through the app or the TV remote says it can't load the user agreement. This is blocking us from getting to streaming apps like Nexflix or any smart functions like Voice assistant.
      TV worked fine for a few days but voice assistant stopped working and after much effort LG tech said to  Reset to Initial Settings. Now we have mentioned no smart functions. TV is on ethernet and its browser functions on web fine. Tried running off neighbor's wifi with same results.
      Tried switching to different country, unplugging/hold power button for 20 seconds/wait one minute,  resetting TV multiple times, setting up remote again, ...
      Error message: Unable to Load User Agreements  A server error has occurred while downloading  the User Agreements. You must download and agree to the terms of the User Agreements to use this feature or application. Do you want to try to download them again… Unable to Load User Agreements  Sorry, but the User Agreements  can't be downloaded at this time…Please check your internet connection and try again later.    No change when trying over five days.
      Now there is no local company available to service TV. Maybe it's time to send it back and give LG TV a one star rating. I am willing to change motherboards but doubt if LG would go along with that.
      Anyone have any ideas.

      LG’s Labor Union Among NGOs Singled Out for Promoting UN’s Aims and Purposes

      SEOUL, Jan. 18, 2022 — Unionized workers at LG Electronics (LG) in South Korea have been conferred special consultative status by the United Nations Economic and Social Council (UN ECOSOC) for their efforts to prioritize ESG in the workplace. Being the first Korean labor union to be awarded such status with the UN is testament to the LG’s prioritization and continued dedication to union social responsibility (USR), a key component of the company’s commitment to ESG management.
      Consultative status is granted by ECOSOC upon recommendation by the Committee on NGOs, which is composed of 19 member states all who must demonstrate that their work has direct relevance to the aims and purposes of the United Nations. The recognition allows non-governmental organizations (NGOs) access to the many subsidiaries of the ECOSOC and the human rights expertise of the UN. Since the LG Electronics Union Social Responsibility Charter was introduced in 2010, LG assembly plant workers worldwide have signed on to the organization’s vision.
      While ESG evokes images of the environment and volunteerism in most people’s minds, how a company treats its employees, one of its most important stakeholder groups, is a critical component of an organization’s ESG performance. According to one study, companies that score high in employee satisfaction and their ability to attract good talent have significantly higher ESG scores than other organizations.
      “We are of course extremely proud of the recognition bestowed upon us by the UN for our efforts to fulfill our responsibilities to our members, society and the environment,” said Bae Sang-ho, the head of LG Electronics’ Union. “We are committed to leveraging this honor to encourage other unions to expand their own USR activities.”

      Sling TV is my default app on my LG TV.   Everything  was working fine until today.  Now when I hit the HOME button on the remote, the TV correctly returns to the HOME page, but then immediately re-launches Sling TV before I have an opportunity to select a different app (for example, Netflix).   This cycle repeats itself every time I enter HOME while in the Sling TV app.  The only way I can return to HOME without Sling TV automatically relaunching is to manually select a different input (e.g., HDMI one or LIVE Team), and then enter HOME and it will correctly stay in HOME until another app is selected.  I've tried resetting the TV  and I've tried deleting/adding Sling TV.  I have the latest WebOS update.  This may have started after downloading a recent Sling TV app?  Not sure.  Any suggestions appreciated.

      With global social distancing guidelines forcing millions to work or attend classes from the comfort of their homes, virtual gaming has emerged as the top form of leisure in Kenya, bringing people together online.
      According to a report by PwC, Kenya was ranked among the top ten gaming hubs in Africa in 2019 with the local market projected to reach USD 118 million by 2022, doubling in size in just five years. The industry is quickly shaking off the narrative that gaming is just for kids and idlers and is being recognized as a tool for social and economic empowerment as the esports ecosystem matures and touches on other industries such as event planning and game development.

      To offer local consumers a peek at the future of esports, the LG team in Kenya set up the PSG FIFA Fan Fest 2021 League, a premier esports competition to give young athletes an opportunity to play against the best, to become the best. Organized in partnership with Pro Series Gaming (PSG), a top esports brand in Africa, the program attracted 128 players divided into two pools of 64 players.

      All matches were played on 65-inch LG OLED TVs, ideal for esports because of their extremely low input lag and unmatched 1ms response time. With every move the players made appearing instantaneously on screen, there was plenty of action and suspense over the six months of the tournament.

      In a hotly-contested match of EA Sports’ popular FIFA 21 and FIFA 22, Gamer Namzzie emerged top in Pool A followed by Barimaina in second place and Dinox third. In Pool B, Mzangwar254 took the top spot with Machulinski and Bad News following closely behind. The two top winners of each pool were awarded LG Tone Free wireless earbuds while the second and third-ranked players each took home LG Bluetooth speakers. The winner of the final Champions eCup, the final match of the FIFA Fan Fest, received the coveted top prize of a 55-inch LG HD TV.

      The Grand Final of Season 1 was held on September 17 while Season 2 concluded on December 11, with both streamed live on PSG’s Youtube channel.
