Why can’t I download Paramount Plus on my LG TV?

Answered by Jarrod Smith

There could be several reasons why you are unable to download the Paramount+ app on your LG TV. It’s important to note that as of now, there is no dedicated Paramount+ app available for LG TVs. However, there are alternative methods to access and watch Paramount+ content on your LG TV.

1. Compatibility: First, make sure that your LG TV is compatible with the Paramount+ app. LG TVs typically run on the webOS operating system, and not all apps are available for this platform. Unfortunately, Paramount+ has not developed a specific app for LG TVs at this time.

2. In-built Casting: Some LG TVs have built-in casting capabilities, such as Chromecast or Apple Airplay. If your LG TV supports these features, you can cast the Paramount+ app from your phone or tablet to your TV screen. Simply install the Paramount+ app on your mobile device, connect both your mobile device and LG TV to the same Wi-Fi network, and then use the casting option to stream the content to your TV. This way, you can enjoy Paramount+ on your LG TV without having a dedicated app.

3. Smart TV Platforms: Another option is to check if your LG TV supports other smart TV platforms or app stores. Sometimes, LG TVs offer access to other app stores like Google Play Store or LG Content Store, where you might find the Paramount+ app. However, it’s important to note that availability can vary depending on your TV model and region. Look for the app store on your LG TV, search for Paramount+, and see if it is available for download. If it’s not listed, it means that Paramount+ has not made the app compatible with your specific TV model.

4. External Streaming Devices: If none of the above options work, you can consider using an external streaming device, such as a Roku, Amazon Fire TV Stick, or Apple TV. These devices can be connected to your LG TV and offer access to a wide range of streaming apps, including Paramount+. Simply connect the streaming device to your TV’s HDMI port, set it up, and then download the Paramount+ app directly on the device.

It’s worth mentioning that app availability and compatibility can change over time, so it’s a good idea to periodically check for updates or announcements from Paramount+ or LG regarding app availability on LG TVs.
