LG Expands Payment Options for ‘Smart TVs’
The program “will give consumers easier access to paid apps, movies, games and much more through LG’s intuitive webOS Smart TV platform,” LG said. The effort involves some 140 payment options in 200 countries.
“By expanding the number of online payment options for LG webOS Smart TVs, this integration with Paymentwall will allow LG customers to enjoy a larger selection of paid content via the LG app store,” LG said. “By simply clicking the buy now button and entering a credit or debit card number, owners of LG Smart TVs with webOS will be able to conduct hassle-free online purchases all over the world without having to sign in separately. LG webOS Smart TV owners will also get support for payment via desktops, laptops, tablets or mobile devices using QR codes and other secure verification protocols.”
Samsung president and CEO BK Yoon has said that by 2017, all Samsung TVs will be part of the Internet of Things.
