While 2020 model LG smart TVs launched with the Apple TV app, the company is now launching the app, which includes access to the Apple TV+ streaming service, for compatible 2019 model LG smart TVs.
The app, which will launch with the TVs in more than 80 countries, can be easily accessed from the LG Home Launcher. Owners can subscribe to and watch Apple TV+ content directly from the app.
With the Apple TV app, LG TV owners can also subscribe to Apple TV channels, including 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. Everything can be controlled using the LG Magic Remote.
In addition to the Apple TV app, LG TVs also support Dolby Vision (of which titles are available through Apple), along with Apple AirPlay 2 for sharing or mirroring content from an iPhone, iPad, or Mac, or playing music synced with other AirPlay 2 compatible speakers anywhere in the home. Also supported is Apple HomeKit for controlling the TV with the Home app on an iPhone or iPad or by voice using Siri, enabling you to power on or off, change volume, switch inputs, and more.
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.
