LG's 2020 TVs are undeniably excellent, but they launched with one major flaw as far as UK buyers are concerned: they were missing all of the UK's core catch-up apps.
The BBC iPlayer app will automatically appear in the webOS launcher bar from this week. If you want BBC News and BBC Sport, you'll have to download them from the LG Content Store.
It's not all good news, though: there's still no update on when (or even if) these 2020 TVs will get ITV Hub, All 4 and My5. While iPlayer is clearly the most valued of the UK's catch- up services, many people consider the full suite to be the least that should be expected from a smart TV platform. In fact, LG's 2019 TVs all shipped with all of these apps, thanks to LG's partnership with Freeview Play. One wonders if LG is regretting having not renewed that partnership into this year.
