im a new LG 4k 60UF7700 owner and was really looking forward to the sling TV application talked about in January..... But it's still not out? Anyone know any further information on that development? I love that service, but was hoping to have it built into my tv now, and move my roku.

Thanks

Scott

Hi Scott, and welcome to the webOS Nation forums!

I'm with you on this - I've been waiting for Sling to be available directly on my webOS TV also, but unfortunately there's nothing yet. Sadly, creating webOS apps isn't like the old days where any one could just throw one out there and put it on a site for people to download. We'll have to wait for an 'official' app to be offered - and hopefully it will come and come soon.

After a quick search, I did find good news...

Quote:
According to LG, both webOS 1.0 and 2.0 will stream Sling TV content to users starting this year:

"In 2015, LG will join forces with the live, over-the-top television service Sling TV. LG Smart TVs with webOS 1.0 and 2.0 will stream Sling TV’s live sports, lifestyle, family, news and information channels, Video-On-Demand entertainment and the best of Internet video through an Internet connection."
And from another source:
Quote:
Supported Sling TV devices

Customers can now watch live TV on the devices they already use to watch video – TVs, tablets, computers and smartphones. The Sling TV app is available on current-generation Roku players, Roku TV models, iOS, Android, Mac and PC, with support for Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick in the coming days.

In the coming months, Sling TV is expected to launch on Google’s Nexus Player, webOS Smart TVs from LG Electronics, select Samsung Smart TVs and Xbox One, with other streaming devices and smart TVs to follow.

LuneOS runs on the the newer Raspberry PIs...

...Raspberry Pi has HDMI out...

...Enyo Moonstone...

...of course lots of services will be proprietary, but some kind of LuneOS TV might be possible.
