How to set up your 2018 LG TV
The first time you fire up your LG smart TV, you'll be walked through an initial setup process. Getting your TV up and running is simple, but you will need to get a few things squared away from the outset.
1. Begin the setup process. The setup process starts by pressing the Enter button. Even though it isn't explicitly explained, you've just paired the remote with the TV.
2. Enter language and clock info.The first information you'll need to provide is the language and time zone. In addition to determining the default language for your menus and setting the clock, this helps to establish the location for the TV.
3. Select the home environment.You can set up your TV for either home viewing or for in-store display, the latter of which ramps up the brightness and contrast. Store modes look better on the shelf, under crummy fluorescent lights, but in your living room, they won't look good. When in doubt, select the home mode.
4. Select your network. Smart TVs rely on internet connectivity, so you will need to get your network connection set up. Whether you want to go wireless or use a wired Ethernet connection, you'll need to select the network type. Even if you want to primarily use a wired LAN connection, it's still a good idea to start by signing in to Wi-Fi, so that you can get connected before ever dealing with cables.
5. Enter your Wi-Fi password. With your network selected, you'll need to enter your password to finish logging in to your Wi-Fi network. Use the on-screen keyboard and the directional controls on the remote to log in.
7. Ready to watch TV.With your network connected and your agreements done, you're ready to start watching.
