LG Electronics is launching the Apple TV app on its range of 2019 smart TVs, the manufacturer has announced.
It follows the introduction of its 2020 smart TVs with the Apple TV app in January at CES.
Consumers will be able to stream Apple Originals such as The Morning Show or Servant, access their iTunes video library and buy or rent over 100,000 movies and TV shows.
LG’s 2019 TVs also support Apple AirPlay 2, which allows users to share or mirror content from their iPhone, iPad or Mac directly to an LG TV. Customers can also play music on the TV and sync it with other AirPlay 2 compatible speakers elsewhere in the home.
Apple’s smart home infrastructure HomeKit is also supported by LG, making it possible for customers to control their TV via voice through Siri.
“LG continues to offer the best home entertainment experience through technological innovations that support the delivery of high quality viewing and user convenience,” said Park Hyoung-sei, president of the LG Home Entertainment Company. “By bringing the Apple TV app and Apple TV+ to even more TV models, we are once again demonstrating our determination to meet consumers’ needs and add value to our products.”
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.
