LG said its webOS-powered 2017 OLED Super UHD smart TV models have stitched in support for Sling TV, Dish Network’s OTT TV service.
Those 2017 models are powered by webOS 3.5, the latest version of LG’s smart TV platform.
LG made Sling TV available on its 2016 smart TV models earlier this year. Sling TV also supports Apple TV (4th generation), Amazon Fire TV, Android TV and Amazon Fire TV devices, the Chromecast streaming adapter, AirTV Player, Channel Master DVRs, the Xbox One, Web browsers, and iOS and Android mobile devices.
LG also announced that its Channel Plus app has surpassed 100 OTT-delivered channels. That lineup includes Bloomberg Politics, Funny or Die, Baeble Music, PBS Digital Studios, Family Feud, the People/Entertainment Weekly Network, Cheddar and Tastemade, among others.
Channels Plus, a free, ad-supported service powered by Xumo, is offered on 2016 and 2017 LG models running webOS 3.0 and 3.5. In addition to SVOD streaming, Channels Plus also allows users to integrate and present over-the-air broadcast channels. – Multichannel
