LG TVs get the Apple TV app

Past year the app was exclusively available on Samsung's TVs, but in 2020 it's coming to a much wider selection of screens.

From this week, all LG 2019 OLED TVs and compatible LG SUPER UHD TVs will get access to a dedicated Apple TV+ app. Owners of select LG UHD TVs (Series UM76, UM74, UM73, UM69) will also get the app later this month.

TV models that feature the ‌Apple TV‌ app as of today include 2019 LED TVs and NanoCell TVs (SM9X and SM8X series).

There is also the addition of Apple TV+ access, which has seen a number of original shows and movies being added to the mix in recent months.

LG's 2019 TVs also support Apple AirPlay 2, which allows users to share or mirror content from their iPhone, iPad or Mac directly to an LG TV.

At CES earlier this year LG announced that it would be adding the Apple TV add to its newer models of smart TVs.

Also supported is Apple HomeKit, which lets users easily and securely control their TV with the Home app on their iPhone, iPad or via Siri, enabling them to power on or off, switch inputs and more.

The upgrade must essentially eliminate the demand for a different Apple TV 4K box, unless you desire accessibility to Apple's tvOS AppStore Apple Arcade video games, as an example, cannot be played without committed Apple TV equipment. As for LG's 2018 TVs, the company doesn't release any specific information, just that the Apple TV app will be available "later this year" for these models.
