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

At Brazil is unavailable yet, but change to Argentina lg store is possible and works perfectly.

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.

Hi,

Just bought a LG with Webos 42LB6300 and I can`t find the Plex client app ?

Where it is exactly ?

Thank you,

Sylvain

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.

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.

It would be nice if plex offered some information as to which TVs this new client supports. The strange thing is that plex themselves has not even made an announcement of this app yet, at least not that I'm aware of.


Is anyone from the plex staff even reading this thread? If you are.. why are you still remaining silent about this?


#23

We still do not know if it is an official product.

There is a post by Simon J Hogan saying he is waiting for Elan to confirm if it is

May be there are some legal discussions going on with a third party !!
