PBS App


feaco

Question

I have had my LG OLED for a year now and love it. Until 2 weeks ago, we used Frontier FIOS and we fired them when they kept going up and up and up and not telling us.

We cut the cord nd went to Hulu which worked great except they do not carry PBS and my wife is an Antiques Roadshow fan. Today, I found PBS View app for the Samasung. I put it on my Samsung smart TV in the office and the firestick on our Samaung dumb tv in the bedroom. I then went to my LG in the family room and lo and behold the LG does not have PBS view. I searched PBS in the app area and there was no PBS view. Does anybody have some suggestions on how to get around this or how to urge LG to make an app.

My wife would be very happy and my life would become less complicated.

The reason that an app for PBS has not yet been added to the content store is that they, PBS, have not yet either created one or it has not yet been approved for the store.

LG do not make apps for the platform as they do not have access to the information that would be needed to create an app for a client's infrastructure.  Companies such as Disney et al are not going to give a third party access to their proprietary information and servers.

If you would like an app produced you need to badger the content providers to do it.

      We own mahamdg.com, a retail store in Iran, MahamDG.com. were one of the primary LG tv distributors in Iran. We also love to sell LG Phones to our customers cause they eventually asked us for LG phone prices.
      we just have a suggestion based on a poll on www.mahamdg.com , our customers want their LG TVs to have the Persian language.
      thanks for your attention and please answer us if you wish.

      Over the past decade, LG has solidified its leadership of the premium TV market through the continuous evolution of its OLED TVs. The company’s commitment to understanding and catering to users’ needs is reflected in its latest OLED products – tailored solutions that deliver superior performance, convenience, usability and accessibility. To create these masterpieces of home entertainment and modern living, LG has done what it has always done: listen carefully to its customers and find innovative technology and design solutions that add value to everyday life.
      A New Level of Innovation with LG OLED 
      As a result of always putting customers’ needs first, LG OLED has become a mainstay of the global premium TV market in 10 years. Its unmatched contrast brings incomparable viewer immersion, enabling perfect blacks and true-to-nature colors that make any kind of content look and feel more real. Additionally, the unprecedented flexibility of the company’s OLED technology has led to unique new form factors and a previously unobtainable level of thinness.
      Among the innovative form factors the company has introduced is the LG SIGNATURE OLED R, which features a rollable self-lit screen that can roll down and disappear into the TV’s base. The rollable OLED was developed with the goal of removing the ‘big black screen’ from users’ living rooms; giving them back their space and providing a greater degree of decorating freedom.

      This year, LG OLED achieved a significant milestone with the unveiling of the LG SIGNATURE OLED M3. The groundbreaking product is the first-ever TV with a wireless solution capable of video and audio transmission at 4K 120Hz – a feat made possible by LG’s Zero Connect technology. At 97-inch, the M3 also offers the largest screen size of any OLED TV currently available.
      The impressive TV and its cutting-edge wireless solution provide a stylish, distraction-free viewing experience, and were designed in response to customers’ desire to have more scope and individual choice when it comes to curating the layout and look of their living space.

      Enhancing the User Experience and Everyday Life
      Nowadays, people care about more than just tech specs and screen sizes, seeking TVs that can deliver next-level convenience and a personalized user experience.
      When consumers told LG they wanted an OLED TV that could be conveniently mounted flush to the wall, the company listened. Applied to the Gallery OLED TV lineup, LG’s refined Gallery Design allows the rear of the TV to ‘hug’ the wall, presenting consumers with a remarkable centerpiece for their space – one that looks like a part of the wall and delivers a truly immersive viewing experience. This year’s G3 OLED evo models boast an aesthetic upgrade via the introduction of the ultra-seamless One Wall Design, which leaves no visible gap when the TVs are installed. LG has also added convenience through adopting a composite fiber material* that reduces the overall weight of its OLED TVs, making them much easier to move and mount.

      Part premium TV, part sophisticated furniture piece, each LG Lifestyle Screen presents differentiated value that goes far beyond what a conventional TV can offer. LG OLED Objet Collection Posé, for example, augments the surrounding décor with its unique, aesthetically-pleasing appearance, and has an effective cable management system that helps users enjoy a cleaner space. In addition to looking stylish from any angle, Posé provides stunning OLED evo picture quality with vibrant, distortion-free colors from practically any viewing angle.

      Personalized TV Experience
      LG is changing the way people use and think about TV by providing personalized experiences based on its Life’s Good philosophy and Sync to You, Open to All vision. The latest LG TVs offer various customizable features and settings – including user interface configuration, content recommendations and picture options – that users can fine-tune to suit their individual preferences. By leveraging usage-data, LG can suggest features and recommend apps, services and shows tailored to the tastes of each user. Along with the ability to automatically adjust color and contrast according to how the user likes them, the company’s new TVs deliver the ease and intelligence of AI Concierge, which not only provides a curated selection of content choices based on past usage and searches, but also suggests trending titles as well as useful settings and features.

      With a decade of OLED TV expertise already under its belt, LG is determined to maintain its dominance in the premium TV market. The company understands that delivering unparalleled customer experiences is key to the future success of LG OLED, and looks forward to creating new value and new consumer-driven display innovations that enhance everyday life.

      Certification From Respected Bodies Highlights
      LG’s Continuing Commitment to Sustainability and a Better Life for All

      SEOUL, April 25, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) today announced that its 2023 OLED evo series TVs have acquired Reducing CO21 and Measured CO22 certifications from the Carbon Trust3 and environmental labels4 from Société Générale de Surveillance SA (SGS) for the third consecutive year. The esteemed recognitions point to LG’s ongoing ESG efforts for plastic waste reduction.
      The Carbon Trust is a global climate consultancy created to accelerate the move to a ‘Net Zero’ future, while SGS is a leading global testing organization dedicated to certifying environmentally sustainable products. Both institutions inspected the entire product stage from production and delivery to disposal.
      Models in the LG OLED evo series boast lighter weight and stronger durability, applying composite fiber material5 and metal. These materials contribute to less plastic use, with the LG OLED evo series TVs requiring only 40 percent of the plastic that is used in LCD TVs of the same screen size. Thanks to these efforts, LG has effectively curbed its plastic use by 20,000 tons this year.
      Thanks to the composite fiber material, select models from the latest OLED evo series are around 20 percent lighter than an LCD TV of the same screen size,6 contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions in transit. Additionally, the back cover of LG OLED evo models, QNED TVs and NanoCell TVs released in 2023 are completed with recycled plastic material which uses more than 30 percent of used plastic. With such efforts, it is expected that LG will achieve a waste plastic recycling effect amounting to 3,200 tons yearly, regarding TV products alone.
      Additionally, LG OLED TVs are made with fewer components than conventional LCD TVs. The smaller number of parts required for each LG OLED product is a result of the TVs’ unique, self-lit display technology, which removes the need for a separate backlighting structure. A reduced parts count also means fewer resources used per unit, as well as less plastic and e-waste to contend with at the end of the TVs’ operational life.
      “The LG OLED evo series are designed to ensure that viewers can enjoy immersive viewing experiences, while reducing impact in all production stages for a greener, healthier environment at the same time,” said Baik Sun-pil, leader of the LG Home Entertainment Company’s Product Development Division. “LG will continue to pursue a broad range of ESG initiatives and responsible practices, as the firm leader of the OLED TV market.”
      Since its initial launch in 2013, LG OLED has continuously raised the industry bar, introducing pioneering display technologies such as OLED evo and groundbreaking form factors including the world’s first rollable TV, LG SIGNATURE OLED R, as well as the bendable LG OLED Flex. This year, which marks the 10th anniversary of LG OLED, sees several new additions to LG’s diverse lineup of self-lit TVs, headlined by the stunning models from the 2023 OLED evo series. LG OLED evo series TVs are currently available in 125 countries worldwide.
      LG has earned a place in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) for 11 consecutive years and has received the ‘Comprehensive A grade’ from the ESG Evaluation and Rating Announcement of Korea ESG Standards Institute (KCGS) for 2 consecutive years.

      Hello,
      I connected an hard drive to my LG OLED TV via USB. My TV is connected to my home network via Ethernet, as is my computer.  
      I would like to access the hard disk from my computer. Is this possible? How can I do this with Windows 10?
      Note that I don't want to connect my hard drive directly to my computer but to my TV (because my home network is quite unstable).
      I thank you in advance for all your help.
