LG took the stage during CES 2014 to officially announce its TVs powered by webOS, the mobile operating system that it acquired from HP last year. LG says it hopes that webOS can be used to simplify the smart TV user experience for everyone.

“LG made it possible for us to really simplify and improve the user experience,” LG said at CES. “One of our landmark partnerships is with Netflix. LG was the first company to bring Netflix to consumer devices. Today, we announce a quantum leap forward in smart TVs.” The webOS TVs have native 4K, and Netflix will stream House of Cards in 4K, this year, and the company promises that it’s going to provide a great UI on webOS for LG.

LG said it’s just getting started and that it has huge plans for 2014. We’ll try to check out LG’s webOS TV on the show floor as soon as we can.
