Whether you have an older TV model, or you simply want to enhance your streaming and online applications on your new smart TV, Firestick is a pretty great option. But the big question is: can you use it with your LG? 

The good news is, you can use Firestick on your LG TV. Not every single model accepts the device, but because it only needs to be an HDTV with an HDMI port, most do! This Amazon product supplements the apps and features on your smart TV, and for those LG TVs running with minimum applications, the Firestick can make a big difference. Firestick with LG TV

With this little tool, you will be able to turn your television into a full entertainment system with apps included such as HBO Max, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and literally hundreds more.
