LG’s mobile roundhouse is all over Android. Its Smart TV lineup is powered by a heritage mobile operating system, webOS. You might look at that product and think that it’s competing with what Google’s Chromecast offers. It’s not exactly the case, though, thanks to the completeness of LG’s software integration into its TVs. That means content deals like this one don’t present a major conflict to either Google or LG.

It certainly helps that LG’s getting more content anyways as it is beginning to take in Google Play Movies & TV content. The Google Play Movies app will be available to LG Smart TV owners starting in the US, the UK, Australia and Canada this month and eventually expand to 100 other countries.

But it’s not as though LG’s Smart TV is dying for flicks: it has Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video, YouTube and Vudu services already available.
