Useful set-up assistant to help those with less tech proficiency
Unlike the others, LG’s webOS TV system has been available on some of the more premium flatscreen TVs from the manufacturer for over a year. Even some own-branded TVs from John Lewis adopt the same Smart TV platform as they are built by LG for the high street store.
Like Samsung’s Tizen TV, webOS presents different options and areas through a tile interface running along the bottom of the screen when called up. However, LG’s system is the only one that comes with “Bean Bird”, a cute character that helps you set up your television, so you don’t need to be too technologically proficient.
As with all of the platforms covered, webOS has plenty of the most common applications and access to streaming services, and all content can be protected through parental controls. If ‘Bean Bird’ hasn’t already helped you set them up originally, you should check the manual for further instructions on how to turn them on.
