ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Oct. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Shopping from home just became even more convenient for LG TV owners just in time for the holidays. LG Electronics USA announced today the launch of the Shop Time app exclusively on LG Smart TVs. Shop Time lets you use your TV to make purchases directly from popular multiplatform video retailers QVC and HSN and several other at-home shopping channels. The app is available now via free download on all LG Smart TVs (2016-2020), including the critically acclaimed LG OLED TV lineup, reaching millions of households across the U.S.
The Shop Time app is an easy way to access your favorite video shopping channels and use your LG Magic Remote to navigate from your TV to complete purchases with retailer partners.
