LG announces Netflix 4K streaming app on 12 new UHD models | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


The two companies have agreed on a partnership which will offer Netflix’s coming 4K streaming service on 12 of LG’s latest UHD TVs.


The new TVs are primed and ready for optimal 4K streaming thanks to the inclusion of the latest HEVC compression codec, H.265, as well as HDMI 2.0, which allows them to stream at 60 fps.


The app is designed to run on LG’s spanking new webOS smart platform, and LG has touted the combination of all factors will provide an experience which it says will “…change the way consumers enjoy television.”
