Reasons to get webOS: #3 simple connection

For some reasons, despite the leaps made in every other area of home technology, TVs remain stubbornly difficult to use. LG’s webOS technology is changing that, though, and its simple switching tech makes finding a new input on your TV a doddle.
Simple connection makes every step of using your TV easier; from easy set-up to accessing entertainment from devices outside your TV, webOS is intelligent, easy to use, and fast. No more navigating through a labyrinth of menus and technical jargon and no more dumbfounding obstructions to overcome before you get where you want to go. Even initial set-up is made easier than ever with a simple and intuitive step-by-step guide from Bean Bird.
Input Assist: LG’s webOS TVs are smart, smart, smart. WebOS detects external devices such as Blu-ray players, home-cinema systems, soundbars, games consoles and USB sticks and displays newly-discovered devices with a simple pop-up.
Finding what you want has got easier, too. Type or speak (if you have a Magic Remote) a keyword and Universal Search instantly provides results from live and catch-up TV, on-demand services and YouTube.
Once you’re offline, LG SmartShare lets you mirror what’s on your smart device screen to your TV, allowing you to stream video from a portable device. Browse, share and view files from your smartphone, tablet or PC wirelessly on your TV. Think TV shows, home videos, holiday snaps and apps, all available on a huge screen for everyone in the room to enjoy.
SmartShare isn’t the only way to beam files, video and images around. With the LG Cloud you can access files on your Smart TV anywhere, anytime. Quickly access videos, music, and photos from other devices, then enjoy them on your TV. Record and save your favourite programmes onto the TV’s connected storage devices so that you can rewind, pause or re-watch.
Finally, if all that sounds like hard work, remember that LG has left a cherry on top: the ability to control your TV directly from your smartphone through LG’s TV Remote App. Clever, impressive and life-simplifying. That’s our kind of mix.
LG’s Smart TVs are amazing pieces of technology. Head here to find out more about them.
