SEOUL, July 11, 2023 — LG Electronics’ (LG) exclusive, free streaming service, LG Channels, is set to present LG Smart TV owners in Australia, Europe and Latin America1 with a vast selection of compelling K-content, which has gained growing popularity worldwide. Spanning multiple genres and offering something for every age and taste, BINGE Korea is the latest collaboration between LG and South Korea-based digital content and platform distribution company, NEW ID, the first in-house venture of the media group NEXT ENTERTAINMENT WORLD (NEW).

In June 2023, LG launched YTN on LG Channels in Australia, Brazil, Mexico and Europe, bringing live news directly from Korea’s first 24-hour news service to a global audience.

Whatever their preferences or interests, users will find a wealth of great viewing choices on the new home of K-content on LG Channels.

Popular Korean TV shows like Running Man, the beloved SBS series that offers friendly competition and laughs as 2 teams compete to win missions – often involving well-known Korean landmarks – are available to watch. Coming in July, LG is proud to present a collection of K-dramas that includes historical favorites, such as The Nokdu Flower, and iconic series set in modern-day Korea, such as The Heirs. The latest wave of K-content to arrive on LG Channels will also feature the NEW KMOVIES channel from NEW ID and an exciting lineup of SLL drama titles.

LG Channels has become a go-to hub for K-pop enthusiasts around the world, enabling them to watch their favorite pop stars perform on the large screens of LG’s Smart TVs. Among the must-see shows users can now tune into is Inkigayo, SBS’s weekly Korean music ranking program which features the hottest K-pop artists of the moment. They can also head to the NEW KPOP channel for a variety of K-Pop TV shows boasting music videos and live performances, as well as reality shows, K-dramas and documentaries.

Younger viewers will be enthralled and engaged by the delightful collection of Korean children’s programs on LG Channels. From Toony Planet and Kongsuni, to Tobot and Robocar POLI, there are plenty of colorful characters and exciting adventures to captivate the youngest members of the household.

Many of the 40-plus K-content channels on BINGE Korea provide user-friendly options to enhance the viewing experience for overseas audiences, including content dubbed in English, and programming with subtitles available in English, Spanish, French or Italian.2

Viewers can access LG Channels by pressing the dedicated button on the Magic Remote or the LG Channels icon on their LG Smart TV’s home screen.

      InstaView Refrigerators With MoodUP in France

      SEOUL, May 28, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) announces the launch of its advanced InstaView refrigerators with MoodUP in France. The company hosted a grand picnic on Paris’s iconic Champs-Élysées on May 26 to celebrate the release of two LG InstaView with MoodUP lineups in France.
      Following launches in Spain, Germany and Italy and now France, LG has augmented its outstanding range of InstaView refrigerators with MoodUP with a new bottom freezer – a model that is highly popular among customers throughout Europe. Offering a smart and customizable culinary experience, the company’s color-changing refrigerators are ideal for those who want to express their mood and personal taste in the kitchen.
      Dubbed Le Grande Pique-Nique des Champs, the recent Champs-Élysées launch event attracted more than 4,000 people, many of whom had the opportunity to personally experience the innovative features and unique value of LG’s latest refrigerators. LG, with the support from the City of Paris and the Comité Champs-Élysées, turned a section of the world-famous avenue into a large, vibrant picnic area, complete with a 216-meter-long tablecloth. The event presented a variety of entertaining experience zones, including eight kitchen areas, each with a distinct atmosphere delivered in part by the brand-new refrigerators and their color-changeable LED door panels and InstaView lighting.
      To enhance Parisian picnickers’ enjoyment of the special day, LG provided picnic baskets containing mats, utensils and other necessities. In addition to savoring the fine food on offer from specially-erected culinary booths, event attendees had the opportunity to interact with the innovative features of LG’s new refrigerator; changing the color of its door panels and playing music on its built-in Bluetooth speaker.
      The new InstaView with MoodUP refrigerator lineups offer two compelling choices: a French Door model and a bottom freezer model. LG’s interactive appliances feature cutting-edge functionalities designed to enhance and personalize the customer experience. Via the ThinQ app, users can apply up to 170,000 color combinations to the refrigerators’ color-changing LED door panels to create a different look and feel in the kitchen. The new models also incorporate LG’s distinctive InstaView door panel, which improves convenience and energy efficiency by letting users see inside without having to open the door. What’s more, the LG InstaView bottom freezer with MoodUP comes with a 4.3-inch LCD Cover Screen, a touch display that enables the convenient management of various refrigerator settings.
      In addition, the company’s innovative refrigerators come equipped with a Bluetooth speaker, enabling users to play songs and podcasts from their favorite streaming apps. Bringing a fun, dance-party vibe to the kitchen, the refrigerators’ LED lighting can even pulse in sync with the music’s beat.* The Color Alarm feature further enhances interaction, communicating with users by making the LED door panels blink or glow brighter in specific situations.
      “It’s an honor to host such a unique and enjoyable event on ‘the world’s most beautiful avenue’, and to showcase our innovative, customizable InstaView refrigerators with MoodUP to a French audience,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company.

      Hello,
      I have a problem with my new LG OLED G2 newest version 4 firmware.
      I tried sorting my satellite channels with chansort programm from github, because sorting them with the tv remote is a pain.
      When I try to sort them with the remote and have selected about 10 or more channels all the selected channels get suddenly getting deselected, so I can only select up to 10 at a time  to 
      sort them -> must be some kind of firmwarebug? 
      After exporting the channellist to a usb stick then editing it with chansort an importing it back into the tv all my channels are gone, all transponderns are deleted.
      First I thought it was a charsort problem but all channels and transponders get also deleted when I simply export them to a usb drive an import them back, without editing the file at all.
      Does someone know how to fix this problem? 
      And yes I´ve done multiple factory resets -> did not fix any of this behaviour.
      I also discoverd another bug the deletes all channels, because I needed to reboot the tv I searched for a reboot option in the tvs menu, but there is no reboot option.
      To do a full reboot (except from forcing it through cutting the tvs power) you can deselect the privicy agreements, after that the tv reboots, but then all channels are gone too.
