LG recently added 4K or 4K/UHD LED and laser variants to its high-end CineBeam projector line-up. Now, the OEM has announced that they can now access the Disney+ app directly from their smart-TV-like interface. This means it will now be much easier for them to show The Mandalorian in the home-theater setting they can achieve.

The HU85LA was recently launched as LG's first CineBeam laser projector that can use this series' 4K Ultra Short Throw features at a resolution of 4K. It can reproduce a "vibrant and crisp" 120-inch display onto a given wall from only 7.2 inches away, with HDR 10 and TruMotion technology.

This laser variant is wheel-less, yet can still use a 3-channel system for "realistic images featuring deep blacks and bright colors". It is now available at authorized LG retailers for US$5,999.99. Those in pursuit of a high-end home cinema experience for less of an outlay could consider the HU70LA instead, however.

This $1799.99 model is a 4K/UHD LED CineBeam projector with an up-to-140 inch throw. It uses a Digital Light Processing (DLP) system, despite also being color-wheel independent. LG claims that this makes for a greater range of colors with increased accuracy.

Then again, it is rated for a 1500 ANSI lumen brightness, whereas the HU85LA has 2700. These projectors had been able to support apps including Netflix, YouTube and Amazon Prime Video directly from their webOS interfaces. However, LG has just announced that Disney+ has just been added to this list.

Therefore, users will be able to log in or subscribe to this app directly on their fancy projectors, so as to enjoy content such as that from National Geographic using the home-theater systems based on them.
