Legacy models

After 30 October 2018, the old FreeviewPlus service, which provided access to TVNZ OnDemand, ThreeNow and Maori TV On Demand apps, will come to the end of its serviceable life and will no longer be available on legacy 2014 LG TVs with HbbTV.  

Following dedicated effort over several months, Freeview developed a 'Lite' version of its new Freeview On Demand platform for devices with lower processing power and memory-handling capacity; however those legacy 2014 LG TVs remain incompatible and are not able to handle the new video format with service-side ad-insertion.  

As such, these legacy 2014 LG TVs will not be able to access the new Freeview On Demand platform.

Legacy 2014 Models with HbbTV

The following LG 2014 models were enabled for HbbTV via an LG firmware release in late 2015 but required a manual Settings Update in order to enable FreeviewPlus.
