Fairfax to launch a news app for Smart TVs

Fairfax Media is to launch an app which will see news content from the SMH, Age, Brisbane Times and WA Today websites available on LG Smart TVs.  

The app will deliver articles, videos, weather and multimedia content from the sites straight to the TV sets, which enable access to Twitter, Facebook, Bigpond Movies and other apps.

Jane Huxley, CEO and Digital Publisher, Fairfax Media said: “The rapid proliferation of new internet-enabled devices such as Smart TVs is an important shift in the digital landscape. Combining this innovative new platform with our brands will extend our news experience into the living rooms of many Australians.”

The app will be available following LG’s next monthly service update.
