LG has partnered with the HotStar (VOD) HotStar (VOD) video platform, which brought the original application to LG’s Smart AI ThinQ television powered by webOS. So far, LG WebOS TV has popular VOD applications like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Zee5, just to name a few. Now users can also access Hotstar.
The LG HotOS webOS application will be launched in March for LG AI ThinQ, including a 32-inch base model. Starting in 2017, it will also be supported by LG’s LG Smart TV model. AI’s LG ThinQ starts from Rs. 31,490 and available in sizes ranging from 32 inches to 77 inches (Rs 32,999,990).
On this occasion, Sidharth Shakhder, EVP, Hotstar, said: “We are pleased to be partnering with LG to provide the Hotstar application for the webOS platform, which will enable LG Smart TV users to change their viewing experience seamlessly. Get access to a vast entertainment library and new live sports and news.
According to Hotstar, this platform now has more than 300 million active users per month and offers more than 1,200 shows and 3,500 films in nine languages. This is also a popular service because it shows great local and international sporting events and is currently the only one that offers HBO shows like Playing Thrones. The streaming platform also recently collided with the original program called “Hotstar Specials,” similar to what Netflix and Prime Video produced for some time.
