Today, the Life’s Good crew has officially announced that it will be adding the official Apple TV app to several additional smart TVs in its lineup, dating back to 2018 and including newer models as well. LG is officially adding the app to its webOS smart TV platform, which means owners of supported models will gain access to Apple TV+ and iTunes content right from their LG-branded smart TV.
Unsurprisingly, LG has confirmed that the Apple TV app will be available for its current NanoCell TVs, as well as its lineup of OLED TVs. In addition to that, the 2018 and 2019 lineups will also be getting the app.
LG’s award-winning webOS smart TV platform will bring 2020 LG OLED and LG NanoCell TVs a plethora of programming from the constantly-growing number of top global content providers through apps and services such as Disney+, Netflix and CBS All Access. New for 2020, the Apple TV app allows customers to subscribe and watch Apple TV+ and Apple TV channels as well as access their iTunes video library and buy or rent more than 100,000 films and TV shows. Customers with 2018 and 2019 LG TV models will also be able to enjoy the Apple TV app this year.
This is good news for owners of supported models. Especially when LG updates older models. Most customers don’t upgrade their TV setup as frequently as, say, their smartphones, so owners of LG-branded webOS smart TVs from 2018 should get a nice surprise soon.
However, we don’t know when LG is actually going to update the TV lineups to support the Apple TV app. Hopefully it’s soon.
