LAS VEGAS — Consumer electronics manufacturer LG Electronics rolled out a new operating system for its smart TV at the Consumer Electronics show, and the new set enables smoother navigation between channels, says Matt Durgin, Director of Smart TV Content at LG, in an interview with Beet.TV at CES.
Based on its webOS 2.0 platform, the new TV allows for easier multitasking as well as access to all of a consumer’s content in one user interface, he explains. “Consumers can seamlessly switch from source to source,” he says. “You can go from Netflix to Amazon to ESPN to HBO and back. That kind of switch from source to source is only brought to you by webOS.”
The new TV set also allows for 4K viewing. In the year ahead, LG hopes to expands its partnerships in the industry. Recently, LG paired up with DirectTV.
