A dedicated channel, via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, is then created. By clicking on the “Drop Screen” button of your phone, your mobile starts to search for the corresponding services.
The TV is then searched, the phone sends a video address to the TV, and when the TV receives the file, it starts playing.
Your TV can then be fully controlled by your phone.
Use the “TV box” function of your LG 49UM7100 TV 4K HDR
No need to pay cable or satellite to access additional programs.
Generally, Smart TVs are able to work with an integrated decoder: there is no need to buy a separate decoder.
This saves you money.

External storage with reading function
A USB stick or mobile hard drive allows you to download a video file to your computer, copy it, and play it on your LG 49UM7100 TV 4K HDR from this external media.
Video over the internet is often not very smooth when network conditions are not good.
