This week, LG announced the launch of the Apple TV app on compatible 2019 LG smart TVs in the USA and in over 80 other countries worldwide.

The Apple TV app lets you watch all the content you've purchased from iTunes, and stream original shows on Apple TV+.

The Apple TV app allows users to access Apple's new video streaming service Apple TV+, and also buy movies, TV shows, etc.

LG's 2020 program will be available with both AirPlay 2 / HomeKit and the Apple TV app, while the 2019 models were awarded HomeKit and AirPlay 2 for last summer and autumn. "A quick click of the LG Magic Remote is all it takes to get started", LG said.

Eerie scenes from Wuhan as death toll from coronavirus rises to 80
In Shanghai, Chinese government have sprayed residential areas with disinfectants to curb the spread of the virus. A US-bound flight is scheduled to leave Wuhan today with consular staff and some American citizens.

Apple TV on LG TVs can be accessed from the LG Home Launcher, and it essentially offers the same experience as it does on other devices. Many are now in 4K with Dolby Vision HDR support too, as is compatible with the majority of new LG TVs.

LG TV customers can now enjoy Apple TV in addition to AirPlay 2 and HomeKit on all of LG's 2019 OLED TVs, NanoCell TVs (series SM9X and SM8X) and later this month, the Apple TV app will roll out on select UHD TVs (series UM7X and UM6X).

All 2020 LG TVs will get the apps from launch, while later this year LG will be rolling the features out to even older 2018 models, too. Customers can also play music on the TV and sync it with other AirPlay 2 compatible speakers elsewhere in the home.

LG confirmed earlier this year that the Apple TV app will be pre-installed on its next-generation sets for 2020. As for LG's 2018 TVs, the company doesn't release any specific information, just that the Apple TV app will be available "later this year" for these models.
