  • LG is opening up Web OS to third-party TV manufacturers.
  • 20 manufacturers around the world have already committed to incorporate Web OS on their TVs.
  • Licensees of Web OS TV will receive the familiar UX design of Web OS 5.0.
LG is opening up its Web OS TV platform to third-party TV brands, the company announced in a press release. The move could spell trouble for Google’s Android TVplatform which is also found on many smart TVs and streaming boxes.

Even though you’ll find an Android TV device easier to procure on a budget, it’s not the most popular smart TV operating system. According to research firm Strategy Analytics, Samsung’s Tizen OS and LG’s Web OS succeed Android TV when it comes to connected TV devices in use worldwide. That said, cheaper Android TV sets from the likes of Xiaomi and other Chinese manufacturers have given Google’s platform a leg up on the competition in some markets.

Android TV could have some serious competition ahead with LG opening up Web OS
