Xfinity Stream App for LG Smart TV

There is currently not an App made available for LG Smart TVs. Is this something that will be happening at any point? Also, is it possible to cast the app from my phone to my TV?

Re: Xfinity Stream App for LG Smart TV

From your laptop, if you are running Xfinity Stream using Chrome, select the"View" menu option, then select "Cast" under that option to stream to your smart TV, assuming that your TV supports casting. Also, make sure both Laptop and TV are on the same network

you currently would need a roku device connected to the tv with the xfinity stream beta channel installed.

Re: Xfinity Stream App for LG Smart TV

***UPDATED 09/2019***

 

Jayluv36,

 

Thanks so much for posting your question here in the Xfinity Forum. Currently, we provide the Xfinity Stream Beta app on the following LG Smart TVs:

  • 2019 TVs with Model Codes LG SM, LG UM, LG LM, LG OLED *9.
  • 2018 TVs with Model Codes LG SK, LG UK, LG LK, LG OLED *8.
  • 2017 TVs with Model Codes LG SJ, LG UJ, LG LJ, LG OLED *7.

 

 

Follow these steps to determine your LG TV model and software version:

The model number can be found on the back of your LG Smart TV. You can also find it by pressing the Home button on your remote and selecting Settings (Gear icon), then scrolling over to About This TV under General.

 

 

Next, follow these steps to add the Xfinity Stream Beta app to your compatible LG Smart TV:

  1. Make sure your LG Smart TV is connected to the Internet.
  2. Press the Home button on your remote to bring up the main menu.
  3. Scroll right or left until you reach the LG Content Store.

  8. When asked, register your device and sign in with your Xfinity credentials.
