I just noticed the new Plex client for the LG Smart TV in the App Store.

I have downloaded and installed it and I absolutely love it. Why has there not being any mention of this on the blog yet? At any rate hats off to the developers as this client is optimized nicely and is snappy fast. Looks great and performs well too.

    Excellent News.

    Could we get a list of countries it is going to be available in? or can one change the country - download and then switch back?

    Yes you can change your TVs country region and download the app, then switch back. Most likely just a North American release for the first while. Try changing to US or Canada to download the app.

    Thanks it is available in the UK gb store 

    http://gb.lgappstv.com/

    and I have added it to my account now

    My interest is in Poland where I have a holiday home with an LG Smart TV. Will switch countries and get it from UK if it does not automatically pick up when signing to my account

    I see the store says dependency on internet. Could we establish if it stops if internet connection is pulled down when server and LG are on the same network and internet made available on initial connection to plex.tv - presumably needed to confirm PlexPASS subscription - but would be good if it does not need to continuously check

    Hopefully it will be available soon.

    I used MediaLink up to a month ago, when I decided to upgrade my main drive to an SSD. This caused me to reinstall windows and it hasn't worked since. Thankfully shared media is still working. I really miss MediaLink tracking what I watch as I watch it.

    My fingers are crossed that this is right around the corner.

    I don't have a webos tv, mine is the netcast version.
    But if you don't see it searching for "plex" in the App Store, then it must not be available for your model of TV.

    I tripped across the application in the LG store and I also have the PLAYZ application it is great to have a PLEX app available, but it is still a bit limited in that does not allow the movies to be sorted by genre, release date or anything else, a default display of the posters is all that is offered and paging is achieved by selectting the (more) button. Movie details are displayed upon selection, but trailers are not played by default and no button exist to play them. 

    Still I am thrilled that an LG application is now available and I am hoping that additional features will be included in the future.

  • alsaltalsalt Posts: 26Members Plex Pass

    A couple of more things, this app works with my 60PB6650 but a list of compatible TV's would be a nice addition. I have also noticed that when first selecting a movie to play it displays and performs some buffering and the amount of time required to buffer vaires from movie, this not really a problem, but if PlAYZ performs any buffering it is not displayed and very quickly accomplished.
