How to install Disney + on LG TVs
There is a large percentage of users who have already registered with Disney +, some have paid directly and others are taking advantage of the seven-day free trial offered by the platform to assess their catalog of series and movies. If they are convinced at the end of the trial period, they will subscribe.
Among all the users who have started using it, by supporting the simultaneous playback of up to four devices watching different content, many are using it on mobile devices. In these there is no problem because there is a dedicated app, which will only have to be downloaded and installed according to the platform used, Android or iOS. But the same does not happen on Smart TVs.
If you have an LG Smart TV you have to know some previous details. Those who use the webOS version 3.0 or higher they already have access to the service. Automatically the application is installed on the TV and as a user you just have to look in your bottom bar of apps to access it. If by any chance it had not been done, visit the LG app store.
When you access the LG Content Store you will only have to use the search engine and type Disney to find it if it does not appear as a featured app at the moment. Once installed, you will be able to access all the advantages of the service, and if your TV is compatible with 4K UHD and HDR content, you will also enjoy the best possible quality.
What happens to LG TVs whose webOS version is not 3.0 or higher? In these cases there is no application available. Therefore, the solution goes through resort to the use of some external device where you can install the application that gives access to the service. For example, an Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, or the like.
Finally, another option is to make use of the support for chromecast if it offers it or use a Google Chromecast connected to the TV and send the content from your smartphone or tablet.
How to know which version of webOS my LG TV has
LG Smart TVs have spent years using webOS as a smart platform. The problem is that for many users it is not easy to remember which version of the system they are using. So let’s see how to find out the exact version. Although by shopping dates you can already get an idea.
- webOS 3.5 or higher came from 2017 models
- webOS 3.0 belongs to the range of 2016
- webOS 2.0 to 2015 models
- webOS 1.0 was released with those of 2014
So, if you bought your television in one of these years, you should already know what version of the system you have. Although it is also true that there are times when you buy ranges from previous years without knowing it. Therefore, from the television itself is how you can know the version of webOS used.
If your Magic Control controller has this arrangement or if the Launcher (lower application bar) has this interface design, then you are in version 1.0
As in the previous one, the remote and the home screen with the application bar is what helps to visually know the version.
Version 3.0 includes this screen and a remote control where the highlight is the arrangement of the central buttons and that lower button that includes a video source selection instead of the microphone icon.
webOS 3.5 to 4.5
Lastly, the control of the televisions with the latest versions of webOS include a button from Netflix and Amazon as more recognizable elements.
