The debut of LG's latest TVs is now underway; however, the CES 2024 event also has some good news for owners of some existing smart screens. The OEM has announced that a selection of these devices released before 2023 are eligible for an initiative that might keep them up to date until 2029. The list currently contains a selection of LG OLED TVs, and may be further expanded in the future.

LG's demo of its 2024 TVs, new OLED and QNED screens included, is now officially underway in Las Vegas. These new and cutting-edge displays will run the latest version of the OEM's webOS UI out of the box - as might a TV from the same brand actually near you soon.

LG has also debuted webOS Re:New at CES 2024 with the goal of bringing existing customers "the joy of a new TV experience for the next 5 years". In the meantime, it is slated to kick off with an upgrade to the latest version of the OS in early 2024 to eligible smart TVs, rated to come with a "highly customizable" UI that sorts content into "user-centric" categories and presents them as home-screen recommendations.

The webOS Re:New roll-out will start with all conventional LG OLED models released in 2022, as well as the OLED Flex and Posé. They will be joined  as initial program members by 2022's QNED99- and QNED95-series TVs, although other variants from more generations might be admitted soon.
