The webOS story of simple connection, simple switching, and simple discovery has really connected with customers and illustrates very clearly our commitment to securing a leadership role in the smart TV market with innovation and creativity." Version 3.0 will bring a number of new features designed to "simplify the process of finding and switching between content options, including broadcast TV, streaming services, and external devices."
