LG Electronics (LG), which introduced its 2020 smart TVs with the Apple TV app in January at CES, is now launching the Apple TV app for compatible 2019 LG smart TVs in over 80 countries.
Any owners of 2019 LG TVs can easily access it from the LG Home Launcher. The Apple TV app gives the LG TV owners the ability to subscribe to and watch Apple TV+, Apple’s new video subscription service, that features popular Apple Originals such as “The Morning Show,” “See,” “Servant” and “Little America.”
LG + Apple TV = Dolby Vision
LG’s TVs offer users a cinematic experience with the best picture and sound on the market to match the constantly growing number of programs from top global content providers. With a wide range of titles available in Dolby Vision, the Apple TV app is an ideal match for LG’s TVs. LG was an early adopter of Dolby technology, and its latest TVs continue to support Dolby Vision, offering users the most immersive viewing experience with truly vivid colors, greater depth and stunningly realistic sound.
Apple Airplay 2 and HomeKit
LG’s 2019 TVs also support Apple AirPlay 2, which will allow you to share or mirror content from your iPhone, iPad or Mac directly to your LG TV. You can also play your music on the TV and sync it with other AirPlay 2 compatible speakers anywhere in your home.
Also supported is Apple HomeKit, which let you easily and securely control your LG TV with the Home app on their iPhone or iPad or by voice using Siri, enabling you to power on or off, change volume, switch inputs and much more.
When will your LG TV get the update?
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.
