The Sky NOW TV application has launched on LG Smart television sets and the South Korean firm will become the first of the TV manufacturers to offer contract-free Sky to their users. This is ideal considering the cost of subscription fees over a designated amount of time, so we are compelled to investigate further as far as the LG Now TV app is concerned.
According to an LG blog post NOW TV is the latest addition to accompany the brands impressive Smart offering, giving users entitlement to social media and gaming as well as premium content with the likes of catch-up TV from BBC iPlayer and instant access to a huge music catalogue courtesy of Spotify and Napster.
In addition, social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are also accessible, although this service has been available through multiple platforms already including the likes of Roku, YouView, PC and dedicated Now TV boxes. With owners of LG’s 2012 and 2013 TVs now being able to access the service other special offers are available for both movies and sports packages.
Below this post we have embedded an introductory video to Sky NOW TV which only lasts about a minute, and we hope to see future offers like this become available for a whole range of TV sets, not just LG. Were you in the market for a new TV that comes with added extras? If so, LG could be the ideal upgrade to obtain contract-free Sky.
