TV 2 Sumo, an OTT streaming service owned by Norwegian commercial public broadcaster TV 2, has upgraded its apps on LG Smart TVs. The new updated design is built across multiple LG WebOS models using Norigin Media’s TV App Framework.
The streaming service is deployed across a range of LG devices with a new design and user experience created by the TV 2 design team and further developed by Norigin Media. The TV 2 Sumo upgrades include 4K streaming and TVoD for renting or buying movies, among others.

This enables consumers in Norway to stream content on an increasing range of devices. LG has been a strategic device for TV 2 and we hope to build the best of TV experiences on all their new models.”
