I totally agree, and have commented on this in the past when previous TVs failed to receive even minor functionality added to the next years model. This is only an app, but even that isn’t a guarantee on TVs older than a year. I remember on a previous Panasonic TV I had the Netflix app was never updated to play in HDR despite the TV being capable (potentially this could be down to Netflix to be fair). Personally I think TVs should be supported with OS updates for as long as phones and games consoles, but it doesn’t appear to happen very often.I think the £1500+ cost of a TV should already allow a few years of OS updates.
I believe Homekit requires some sort of Apple hardware authentication, which *may* not be possible with older TVs.It's a shame LG can't add Apple HomeKit capability to 2018 models too, would be great to turn the LG C8 on via a HomeKit Automation.
Are you insane? I do not and never will subscribe to a TV. I agree they should be far better in supporting older models - that could help separate them from the competition.I like it that they keep updating the Software on older Models. TVs should be products that stay in your home for a minimum of 6 years. We cannot all finance an upgrade every year. LG should maybe think about a subscription based TV rental in where we get an upgrade each year to keep up with new features.
But with this update my W8 65" won't feel that old anymore.
if we find it does not if you got the new LG models or the 2019 range then use a iPad or iPhone to airplay them to the tv and you,will get Dolby vision and Atmos without problemsKey question - will it support Dolby Vision & Atmos. It doesn't on anything other than Apple's own 4k box right now.
"For all mankind" and "The Morning Show" are good but I'll probably cancel my sub when I've finished watching them.Is there anything worth watching on Apple tv+?
I have an old Apple tv box but since buying my C8 OLED with Netflix and Prime built in I rarely use it. Every now and again I might rent a movie. However, if it were an app on my tv that I could use in 4K HDR I would probably use it more often. I wasn't going to buy the Apple 4K tv box as I felt it was too expensive for the odd movie.
