Dr. Scott Ahn, LG’s Chief Technology Officer explained today :
“One key reason behind selecting webOS as our next smart TV operating system was because of its history and origins as a developer-friendly platform,”-“We feel it’s very important for platform owners such as LG to assist developers in creating apps that are highly maximized for our products. In an industry where there is no single dominant standard, expanding the webOS TV ecosystem is a top priority for LG.”
