The EG9900 will also include a 100W 4.1 Channel speaker system with wireless subwoofer developed by Harman/Kardon, and deca-core processor for faster webOS performance.

LG is also ensuring that its new TVs sport the latest version of webOS, its smart TV operating system bought from HP back in 2013. The new version that LG will launch with its TVs will simplify the user experience, make things more intuitive, and according to LG add a “raft of impressive features.” Inside webOS, LG has secured a partnership with DIRECTV to allow TV owners direct access to their Genie HD DVR and other on-demand content without an additional DIRECTV box. LG is also partnering up with HSN, GoPro, SHOWTIME, iHeartRadio, and others to make tons of new streaming content available through webOS.
