I've got an LG Smart TV, but cant find the BT App in the LG Content store. Any ideas on how to find or add the App to the LG TV?
It's not available on LG Smart TVs currently, only Samsung.
The work around is to use another supported device plugged into the TV, such as a Fire TV stick/Chromecast or buy a new TV. 😁
There are a number of factors in choosing which platforms to support, including popularity of devices, complexity of development, manufacturer support, and commercial agreements.
I personally did a proof of concept app for LG TVs back in 2014, but we still don't have an app available. Make of that what you will. 🙂
I'm not allowed to say anything about the future possibility of LG being supported.
I'm losing count now, but I think we currently support 13 different platforms for BT Sport? And we're working on a few more for 2021. I don't think we're doing too bad a job.
I guess the point being made is that many of us have an LG branded TV (35% market share in the UK) 2nd only just behind Samsung. This is leaving many consumers without an option to watch on their tv. Be great if this could be made to work with LG especially given all the challenges in lockdown with sport being a distraction for many people who live alone. I also understand LG tv users could use the browser in Web OS but this has now been restricted. Is it fair to suggest these customers buy another device to stream through their LG tv ?
