2018 TV sk8500 Apple TV app


Novice Member
Hi, I found out today you can get the apple tv app from the LG content store. I found this by accident, I was looking at the apps and videos and noticed the Apple logo on a video so I clicked and it downloaded the app. I didn’t think 2018 TVs had the app yet.

My 49SK8500 also had the pop-up when I switched it on the other day. I had a flick through what's available on Apple TV+ and decided to watch the free episodes of Ted Lasso, which are pretty funny (and it's fun spotting locations like the pubs and alleyways of Richmond).

The TV recognised that the show is in Dolby Vision and switched to Cinema Home mode, and some of the shots displayed that extra 'pop' that you get with HDR. However I felt that the picture was fading from brighter to dimmer in some scenes. Is this a feature of Dolby Vision or an error in the TV? Is there a setting that needs to be changed to stop this happening?
