Apple TV+ comes to 2016 and 2017 LG TVs

07 Oct 2021 | Rasmus Larsen |

After launching on 2018+ LG TVs, Apple TV+ is now also available on certain 2016 and 2017 LG TVs. The iTunes movie library is not accessible.

Apple TV+ on LG TVs

Apple's official list of supported devices has not been updated to reflect the fact but LG has confirmed the news. The app is now available from LG's content store in many regions, according to user reports in Germany, Nordics, and Poland. - "The app is available on select 2018 LG webOS 5.0 and later models. The Apple TV+ will launch on certain 2016 and 2017 models in 2021," LG USA says on a newly published support page. The new app provides access to Apple TV+ shows like Foundation, See, and Ted Lasso. As depicted in the screenshots and confirmed by user reports, the iTunes movie library is not accessible at this time so it appears to be a scaled-down version of the app. Note that the app is called 'Apple TV+' as opposed to 'Apple TV' on more recent TV models. FlatpanelsHD is still trying to confirm if 4K HDR streaming is supported. Update: 4K and Dolby Vision confirmed. LG has not released a list of compatible TV models but it is safe to assume that at least 2016 and 2017 OLED models will be getting the app, considering B6 was LG's most affordable OLED model in 2016. If you own a 2016–2017 LG TV, please share your findings in the comments section. You may need to update your TV's firmware to the latest version, according to LG. FlatpanelsHD maintains a list of TV models that are compatible with the Apple TV app, AirPlay 2 and HomeKit, powered by the TV Database. - Source: LG, thanks to Bartłomiej, Kasper & Per
