If you buy a brand new LG smart TV over the holidays, you must get value for your money. You can sit down and watch cable all night with your family members, but that's not all why you should buy a smart TV - we're here to talk about the app. Before you download anything and everything, we have a few pieces of advice. Here are the best LG Smart TV Apps of 2023 that you can download.

Top Picks

  1. Spotify (and other music services)

Price: Free / Premium service varies

We will first tackle one of the easiest genres - music. More people are turning to apps like Spotify and Pandora to play their favorite songs, so why not add an app to your TV? The LG Smart TV version of each app works just like your mobile version, just inflated to fit the TV. You can also use Sirius XM if you like the feel of a live radio station. Of course, you will have to spend a little cash if you want to get rid of the ads.

  1. Movies Anywhere

Price: Free

Movies Anywhere app brings all your downloads into one handy app. You will have to connect all your accounts with this LG Smart TV app, but then you will be able to watch all your favorites easily. Movies Anywhere app is similar to Plex, also available in LG's Content Store. Best of all, Movies Anywhere is completely free and can help you discover new deals on content from your other services.

  1. YouTube TV

Price: $64.99 per month

Maybe you're looking at your new LG smart TV as a way to get rid of your cable box altogether. If so, there are several live TV apps to consider. Chief among them is YouTube TV, although Sling TV and Hulu TV are also available. YouTube TV might be the most expensive app on this list, but it offers several premium plan options and over 85 channels. Every live TV app must provide a new and cost-effective way to eliminate boredom.

  1. Disney Plus (and other video services)

Price: Free / Premium service varies

Your applications should reflect your individual needs, and video services are no exception. Just like music services, you have the right choice when it comes to LG smart TVs. Disney Plus is one of the most popular - and highest-rated apps right now thanks to The Mandalorian and Hamilton content. You can also switch to Netflix, Hulu, and Apple TV, but each has its own subscription fee, so be careful.

  1. Twitch

Price: Free 

Gamers, rejoice! Twitch is one of the popular apps on LG smart TVs, though it's not for everyone. If you're not interested in NWSL or streams, you may not see much need for Twitch, but your kids might want to give it a try. Twitch also offers a feature that allows you to enjoy content with friends and family even when you can't be together. 

Final Thoughts

Apps on the LG Content store are significantly region-dependent. We have provided a list of the Best LG Smart Apps for your reference. Hope you will have the best experience while watching TV.
