LG smart TVs let you scroll back with Freeview Play

Owners of 2016 LG Smart TVs will now have access to Freeview Play’s scroll-back TV guide, the company has announced.

Users of LG’s webOS 3.0 smart TVs will be able to scroll back through their TV guide to enjoy shows over the previous seven days. Entertainment services from UKTV Play and STV will also join the range of catch-up services available from Freeview Play.

LG said that its smart TVs now offer viewers “one of the most comprehensive selections of services in the UK”.

Darren Petersen, LG senior content and services manager, said: “LG recognises that UK consumers have a very strong heritage in using the TV Guide for navigating and browsing through their favourite TV content. With the introduction of the Freeview Play scroll-back guide, consumers have the choice to watch what they want at a time to suit them, through an easy-to-use, familiar format. This additional, convenient, function, coupled with our impressive OLED and Super UHD TV range, really does present viewers with the very best home entertainment experience.”
