Sling TV has crossed another barrier jumping onto a new smart OS. A Sling TV WebOS App launching on most LG Tv’s is now available on LG smart TV’s and WebOS.According to the company, the app will be supported on “most” LG webOS 3.0 and 3.5 Smart TVs. Sling Television is the first service of its type to be included on the LG interface which puts it leagues ahead of its competitors. The inclusion will allow the service to establish a beachhead on the very popular smart TV platform known for its “magic remote” interface.
“Even with today’s ‘always on-the-go’ lifestyle, we know watching TV from the living room is still as important to our customers as ever,” said Ben Weinberger, chief product officer of Sling TV. “Offering Sling TV on LG’s award-winning, top-of-the-line smart TVs gives viewers more control over how they watch Sling TV so they can view their favorite programs without the need for additional devices or unnecessary input-switching.”
The inclusion on LG adds to the streaming company’s profile which includes all of the major set-top streaming platforms, Mac, and Windows, Android TV products, and others.
