Starting this month, a firmware update will endow LG Electronics’ OLED, LG NanoCell and smart LCD TVs produced from 2016 through 2020 with an integrated Amazon Music app, the company has just announced.
With Amazon Music, Prime members have access to two million hand-curated songs and over 1,000 playlists and stations at no additional cost to their membership. And subscribers to Amazon Music Unlimited, the service’s premium subscription tier, have access to more than 60 million songs and thousands of playlists and stations.
Customers who have not yet tried Amazon Music Unlimited will also be eligible for an extended 90-day free trial when they purchase an LG TV on Amazon.com or register a compatible LG TV with Alexa, according to the company.
Additionally, all compatible LG smart TV users can play their favorite music hands-free on their TVs using just their voice and the advanced LG Magic Remote. And with LG’s 2020 TVs also being Bluetooth Surround-ready, customers with compatible LG TVs will be able to connect two Bluetooth speakers simultaneously to hear favorite tunes in virtual 4.0 surround sound.
“Bringing Amazon Music support to LG TVs is another example of the added value benefits our customers receive after the initial purchase,” said Park Hyoung-sei, president of the LG Home Entertainment Co., in the announcement statement.
