You’ve probably encountered a situation where you want to install a streaming service application but can’t find it in the app store. Googling it, you find that the service works on TVs running WebOS 3.0 or higher or WebOS 6.0. And then you wonder which operating system is installed on your TV.

OS in LG TVs, what you need to know

Until 2014, LG TVs were running the NetCast operating system. In 2014, LG decided to switch to a new OS called WebOS.
WebOS was initially referred to as WebOS 1.0, WebOS 2.0, etc. But it’s hard to navigate through the OS versions, so in 2022 it was decided to call WebOS by the year of release. C 2022, there is WebOS 22; now it is easier to understand the version of the operating system 22 means the 2022 version of the OS. But developers continue to use the old designation of the OS version.
