That’s why we’ve put together this rad guide to help you find the ESPN app on your LG Smart TV and get your sports fix ASAP.
ESPN App Availability on LG Smart TVs
So, I recently tried finding the ESPN app on my LG Smart TV and guess what?
It’s not directly available on the LG Content Store.
Bummer, right? But don’t worry, there are still ways to get ESPN on your TV.
First off, let me tell you that ESPN+ isn’t listed among available devices on their official website either, so my LG Smart TV isn’t the only one missing out.
Now, onto the solutions I’ve found!
One easy method I used is getting a streaming device like Apple TV, Firestick, or Roku.
They’re super handy because once I got one, I could search for the ESPN app, download it, and start watching right away on my LG TV.
Another option I found is using a Google Chromecast.
Just plug it into your TV’s HDMI port and you can stream ESPN+ from your phone or tablet to your LG Smart TV.
It’s pretty sweet and probably one of the simplest solutions out there.
And, if you’re a fan of gaming consoles, you can also access ESPN+ through devices like PlayStation or Xbox.
It’s a win-win if you love gaming and sports!
So yeah, even though the ESPN app isn’t natively available on LG Smart TVs, don’t let that stop you.
There are plenty of other ways to access ESPN.
Alternative Streaming Devices for ESPN App
Since the ESPN app isn’t available on LG smart TVs, you gotta use a workaround to access it.
Roku and Firestick
Man, I gotta tell you, since you can’t find the ESPN app on your LG Smart TV, you should definitely check out Roku and Firestick.
Both these streaming devices have the ESPN app, and you just need to plug them into your HDMI port.
They’re super easy to use, and you’ll get your ESPN fix in no time.
If you’re like me and an Apple fan, you can’t go wrong with Apple TV.
It’s got the ESPN app and makes streaming a breeze.
Just set it up, and you can use Airplay to cast from your iPhone to your LG TV as well.
I’m telling you, it’s super convenient.
Another great option for us ESPN fans is Google Chromecast.
You can use screen mirroring to stream ESPN from your phone or computer.
Just plug it into your TV’s HDMI, and you’re good to go.
Xbox and PlayStation
Now, if you’re into gaming AND sports, you’re in luck!
You can watch ESPN on your Xbox or PlayStation.
All you gotta do is download the ESPN app on your game console, and then you can kick back and stream your favorite sports while chillin’ on your own LG Smart TV.
So, even though you can’t find the ESPN app directly on your LG Smart TV, there are plenty of other ways to catch your favorite ESPN content.
Just try out one of these streaming devices or gaming consoles, and you’ll be set.
Casting and Mirroring Skills
One of my favorite ways to use the ESPN app on my LG smart TV is via casting and mirroring.
So, I got my LG TV and Android phone connected to the same Wi-Fi, launched the ESPN+ app on my phone, swiped down the notifications bar, and tapped Cast, Smart View, or Screen Mirroring (whatever my phone had).
Then I just selected my LG TV from the list of devices, and boom, ESPN was on my TV.
PC and Laptop
If I’m using a PC or laptop, I can access ESPN through my web browser.
All I need to do is connect my laptop to my LG TV via HDMI, and then I can watch ESPN on the big screen just like that.
You do have to change the “input” to the one with the HDMI cable in order to see it on your TV screen.
For Mac users like me, it’s not much different from using a PC or laptop.
We can also access ESPN through a web browser on our Macbook.
We just connect our Macbook to the LG TV via HDMI, and we’re good to go.
So, basically the same was the PC.
If I want to cast ESPN to my LG Smart TV using my iPhone, Apple Airplay is my go-to method at my parent’s house.
It’s super simple, and in no time, I get to enjoy ESPN on my LG TV using my iPhone.
Casting ESPN from my iPad is a piece of cake too! I use Apple Airplay just like I do with my iPhone, making sure both devices are on the same Wi-Fi network, and then just follow the AirPlay instructions.
That’s it, ESPN on the big screen using my iPad.
