What LG TVs Are Compatible With Paramount+?
Paramount Plus is compatible with an extensive range of LG TVs, made in 2018 and later. Still, keep in mind that your TV must run WebOS 4.0 or newer. Therefore, if you haven’t updated your TV’s operating system in a while, now’s the best time to do so.

Can I Stream Paramount Plus in 4K on LG TVs?
Yes, Paramount Plus will bring 4K content to LG TVs, which also applies to any other platform supported by this media streaming service. We don’t exactly know how many titles will be offered in 4K and HDR, but we do know that select movies and TV shows (both new and upcoming) will come in Ultra HD.
Of course, to take full advantage of your LG TV, it needs to support up to 4K resolution. And on top of that, you need a fast Internet connection. In general, it’s recommended to have at least a 30 Mbps Web connection to stream in 4K Ultra HD.
Can’t Find Paramount Plus on Your LG TV? Here’s What to Do!
We know that LG can be somewhat slow to make new apps available to all of its customers. So, if you can’t find Paramount Plus on LG’s Content Store, we first recommend restarting your TV. More precisely, unplug it and then plug it back in after waiting around 30 seconds.
Also, our strong recommendation is to update your TV’s operating system, as Paramount Plus requires WebOS 4.0 or newer. Unless you have the needed WebOS version, Paramount Plus won’t show up in the LG Content Store.
Can You Get Paramount+ for Free on LG Smart TVs?
No, you can’t get Paramount Plus for free on LG TVs. There are currently no promotions that can make that happen. However, you will get to count on the streaming app’s 7-day trial, letting you test-drive Paramount Plus without any limitations.
Keep in mind that Paramount Plus will be priced at $9.99 per month, with a $4.99 per month plan coming in a couple of months (which will be ad-supported). On top of that, you can stream a selection of CBS channels for free if you already pay for CBS via your cable subscription or via a live TV streaming service.
