22 Dec 2015 | Rasmus Larsen |

At CES 2016 next month, LG will debut its 2016 TV line-up with an upgraded webOS platform. Besides being faster, webOS 3.0 offers a range of new features, including multi-view and Channel Plus, as well as a new remote control.

LG will stay committed to webOS in 2016. That much is clear after the manufacturer has confirmed that webOS 3.0 will be integrated in its 2016 TVs.

webOS 3.0 is a continuation of the simple and intuitive user interface that has defined webOS, says LG.

Besides being faster webOS 3.0 features:
  • An upgraded Magic Remote with more buttons that allow you to better control connected devices such as set-top boxes
  • Magic Mobile Connection makes it possible to connect a mobile device to the TV with the “LG TV Plus App” to access mobile apps on the TV screen
  • Channel Plus is a unified channel list that combines OTT content with broadcast TV channels. Users can pay to access premium internet channels
  • Xumo integration makes it possible to watch free content from publications such as Bloomberg, TIME Inc., Conde Nast Entertainment, The Wall Street Journal, BuzzFeed, PopSugar, Mode Media and others in the Channel Plus app
  • Channel Advisor analyzes viewing patterns and displays upcoming time slots with program information about frequently watched programs
  • Multi-view allows you to watch two different channels at the same time or a channel and a Blu-ray movie, for example
  • Music Player app plays music through the webOS 3.0 TV speakers, even when the TV is off
  • My Channels & Live Menu have been upgraded with new sub-features to make them more useful to viewers
  • IoTV app allows on-screen control of smart home appliances from LG and other manufacturers that are compatible with LG IoTV
  • Magic Zoom allows you to zoom

    - “We are excited about webOS 3.0, a major update since this advanced TV platform technology was first introduced in 2014,” says Brian Kwon, CEO of LG’s Home Entertainment Division and continues; “The webOS story of Simple Connection, Simple Switching and Simple Discovery has really connected with customers and illustrates very clearly our commitment to securing a leadership role in the smart TV market with innovation and creativity.”

    It is not clear whether LG has plans to update previous TVs to webOS 3.0. When the company releases webOS 2.0 they initially said that previous TVs would not be updated but they later changed their mind and released a major update.

    LG’s 2016 TV models will be unveiled at CES 2016 in Las Vegas (Jan 6-9). FlatpanelsHD is there to give you all the news.
