Dutch telco KPN has launched a new smart TV app for LG TVs, following a similar app for Samsung TVs last April.

KPN customers using the app no longer need a dedicated IPTV set-top, with the app running on the smart-TV platform that can be accessed wirelessly using Wi-Fi access.

With the KPN Smart TV app, KPN customers can watch TV wirelessly. They no longer need a TV receiver; ideal for watching TV in rooms without cabling. The app can be downloaded in the app store on the smart TV.

The app offers the most commonly used functionalities from the KPN’s IPTV platform such as watching live linear TV, re-sart or catch-up via the KPN TV guide, pause, and record. There is also an easy search function, with genre filtering.

The app can be used by KPN customers who have an internet and TV subscription and have a recent model of smart TV from Samsung (from 2017) or from LG (from 2017).
