LG says that the app is available in more than 80 countries, including Canada, and gives users access to the Apple TV+’s streaming subscription service as well as the ability to rent and buy 100,000 movies and TV shows.
A few months ago LG added AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support to its 2019 televisions. The company’s 2018 televisions are also set to get Apple TV+ at some point later in 2020.
My main take away from this announcement is that Apple now makes a webOS app. Jump in a time machine and try to explain that to someone in 2011 and it’s likely they just wouldn’t believe you.
Apple’s TV+ app has slowly been rolling out on more manufacturer’s televisions and set-top boxes over the last few months, including Roku and Fire TV. Samsung is the only other smart TV maker that also has the Apple TV+ app, though Vizio and Sony TVs support AirPlay 2.
