CES 2015 may be a few weeks out yet, but apparently LG is super excited for its webOS 2.0-based TVs that it’s going to show there, because the Life’s Good crew pre-announced its CES news tonight.
LG says that it will show off some new televisions running its webOS 2.0 Smart TV platform at CES, which runs from January 6 to January 9. webOS 2.0 aims to improve upon the base webOS Smart TV software by offering a 60 percent faster boot time, smoother and faster content switching and some new features.
The first major new feature of webOS 2.0 is My Channels. The add-on lets you set their favorite live TV channels on the Launcher Bar for quick and easy access. Also included is Quick Settings, which lets you adjust your TV settings without interrupting the content that you’re viewing; Input Picker, which allows connected hardware be instantly recognized by the TV; and support for viewing Ultra HD content through Amazon, Netflix and other services.
LG doesn’t say when we’ll see webOS 2.0-powered TVs actually begin to hit store shelves and consumer entertainment centers. The company does promise that the sets will make the trek to Las Vegas in early January, though, so hopefully we’ll learn more then.
Have you tried one of LG’s webOS TVs yet?
