Back in January during CES 2020, LG introduced its 2020 smart TVs that all had the Apple TV app in it. If you bought an LG TV in 2019 and felt like you missed out, no worries as LG has now launched the Apple TV app that is compatible with all 2019 LG smart TVs in over 80 countries that even includes Malaysia.
With the Apple TV app, LG TV owners can easily subscribe to Apple TV channels — direct subscriptions to premium video services available both online and offline, ad-free and on demand — and access their iTunes video library and buy or rent over 100,000 movies and TV shows. A quick click of the LG Magic Remote is all it takes to get started.
Through the app, you can also access Apple TV+ which is the first all-original video subscription provided by Apple with a monthly subscription of RM19.90 per month. It comes with Apple Originals such as “The Morning Show,” “See,” “Servant” and “Little America.”
Apple users can also get seamless control of the LG TV through the 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 anywhere in the home. Also supported is Apple HomeKit, which lets users easily and securely control their TV with the Home app on their iPhone or iPad or by voice using Siri , enabling them to power on or off, change volume, switch inputs and more.
Altogether, LG TV customers and Apple users 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.
