LG taps Highbrow to bring educational TV content

Highbrow, the popular ad-free video-on-demand education platform for children, is coming to LG TV customers in 145 countries. Announced earlier this week by the Korean electronics giant, the content is accessible via their LG Content Store. The offering will only be available on LG’s Smart TVs running webOS versions 4.0 and higher. This will also see LG be the first to provide children up to 11 years of age, parents and educators with Highbrow’s wide selection of age-appropriate educational content to suit the needs of every young learner.

With distance learning still dominating students’ lives, TVs are now fast becoming one of the go-to education tools in many countries and with the addition of the Highbrow to its TV sets, LG will take that concept to another level. Delivering an engaging assortment of educational videos that have been carefully hand-curated with proprietary technology, the Highbrow app is matched to each learner’s age and interest for a personalized viewing experience.

The app makes recommendations from its library of more than 10,000 videos covering topics ranging from science, humanities, mathematics, music, art, languages and more. It delivers fresh and engaging content that works with over 200 global creators including Pinkfong, best known for its megahit Baby Shark song and video. A global trusted online learning platform, Highbrow is already being used in more than a hundred schools around the world.

With the screen mirroring features of LG TVs, content from compatible smartphones, tablets and PCs can be replicated on the TV screen using LG Magic Tap on Android or Airplay for Apple devices. Magic Tap also allows compatible smartphones to connect via NFC to LG’s Magic Remote on 2021 LG TVs, enabling learners to hear the TV’s audio through headphones or earbuds for more privacy and immersiveness.

Because protecting the eyes of viewers during learning is just as important as delivering outstanding picture quality, the displays in all 2021 LG OLED TVs are certified as flicker-free and discomfort glare-free by UL. * And because LG OLED TVs are TÜV Rheinland Eyesafe® certified, parents can be assured that the health of their little ones’ eyes is not at risk.
