LG boasts 1 million webOS TVs sold since launch

02 Jun 2014 | Rasmus Larsen |

LG unveiled their webOS Smart TVs at CES 2014 and the first models went on sale in March in the US and are just now rolling out in Europe. Today, LG boasts 1 million webOS TVs sold since launch. They expect to reach 10 million by the first half of 2015.

LG’s webOS TVs off to a good start

LG has started calling their webOS-enabled TVs for “Smart+ TV”. Regardless, LG is off to a good start with 1 million sold since launch. LG is focusing on a simple user interface and says that response has been great so far.

- “Reaching the one million mark in just three months is a significant achievement in the TV industry,” said In-kyu Lee, head of the TV division, LG.
- “Rather than continuing to add more and more functions into our smart TVs that few people will ever use, we’ve decided to focus on simplicity with our 2014 Smart+ TVs with webOS. Consumers seem to share our view that this is the right direction for the evolution of smart TVs going forward.”

LG is competing with other Smart TV makers, but so far no TV manufacturer has cracked the nut, and TV makers have largely failed to demonstrate the value of Smart TVs over cheap streaming boxes such as Roku and Apple TV. LG’s webOS TV platform looks promising and could very well be the first breakthrough in Smart TVs.

webOS is available in LG’s 2014 Full HD and Ultra HD TVs. LG expect to reach 10 million webOS TV sales by the first half of 2015.
