LG today announced pricing and availability for its 2020 NanoCell TVs with AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support in the United States.

The first 4K models are rolling out now, with pricing starting at $599 for a 55-inch model. The entire 4K lineup will be released by September, including up to an 86-inch model for $3,299. 8K models will also be rolling out in May and June, including 65-inch and 75-inch models for $3,499 and $4,999 respectively.

AirPlay 2 will enable users to stream videos, music, podcasts, and more directly from an iPhone, iPad, or Mac to a compatible LG smart TV, with no Apple TV necessary. And with HomeKit support, users can easily control the TV's power, volume, source, and more using Siri or the Home app on iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

LG's 2020 NanoCell TVs also include the Apple TV app, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, Disney+, Netflix, LG Channels, and Movies Anywhere, complete with Dolby Vision or HDR10 video and Dolby Atmos sound where available.

Last week, in a support document, LG indicated that it would roll out AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support to some of its 2018 smart TVs by October 2020. However, since our report, LG has removed all mentions of this.

Some of the prices are incorrect. For example, the 75-inch is $2499, which is impressive.

The thick of it
If more manufacturers adopt AirPlay, HomeKit and ATV support, I wonder how that will affect the sales of the ATV over time. If devices already have that functionality built into them, why buy a separate box?

Quite a jump in price from the 55 to the 65. Did you mean 2,599? Wish someone would make an Airplay 2 HDMI stick or something.

LG NanoCell TVs deliver stunning color reproduction by using a layer of one-nanometer sized particles that filter out impurities resulting in natural, lifelike color, which remain more accurate, even at wide viewing angles.

theres no way its meant to compete with OLED's, right?

This is just a nicer Low end LED option?

How is LG when it comes to data collection of its smart TVs? Can you disable the smarts (mic, watching habbits, data collection, etc), but keep the HomeKit/Airplay integration?
Was wondering the same thing myself. If it's not possible to disable Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, then it's a no go for me. Problem is probably won't be able to find a tv without them going forward.

yeah me too.
I bet if apple makes ones, I would imagine it would look like a small black box. Small enough that small black “apple” box can be hidden behind the “TV”....

LG has horrible customer service; you get what you pay for.
Totally! Spent best part of £1800 for an LG OLED but out of warranty now and a massive green hue has appeared toward centre of screen, mostly shows on face tones. A design issue (internet search shows many instances of this) and is now supposedly corrected in newer models.
Burn in I would reluctantly accept, such is the shortfall of OLED, but a design flaw??
A lot of money spent just to trial their TVs and no fix for me as it is out of warranty.
Would never buy LG again.

not read the article, but can i get it 32", why can i not buy any "good" small TVs 😢
I just recently had to replace a 32" that died. Smallest 4k for a sensible price I could find was 43". Fortunately it fits the space vertically (this was the primary constraint) and just overhangs the edge more which we can live with. But I agree: can we have some smaller 4K quality TVs please!

They replaced my oled panel out of warranty that being said, my replacement panel is now starting to show deterioration on year 2, so I’m not sure if I no longer trust LG or Oled tech in general. This is what I get for leaving my trusted Sony Lcos projector for a crappy tv.

I had the same with a 3000 euro Samsung after 3 years, it's hit and miss with these things.
