Idea!!I've seen that there's a Lightroom CC app for apple tv, can there be a port for LG webOS smart TV platform?  No better way to view my photos than on my OLED TV! Just thinking. :)Thanks!!

For processing, or just casual viewing? A calibrated monitor would probably be better for critical adjustments, but not really necessary for the latter.

Largely for casual viewing. I find that my photos get viewed pretty much only on screens anymore, and the easier access on large screens the better, is my thought.  However, simple editing tools could be nice too.

I assume that your TV is connected to the internet (otherwise this request would not make sense), so why don’t you go to https://lightroom.adobe.com and login? That will give you Lightroom on your TV right now.

I've tried the browser that's built into the TV and it's not a very good experience. In fact on my TV and in my PlayStation the website won't even load.  I suspect that Adobe supports only certain browsers and the webOS browser and PlayStation browser aren't on that list. :(

My argument for an app is two fold.  1. relaying on the built-in browser really limits the experience to the capabilities of the platform's browser, and in many cases the browser isn't good at running web apps to say the least.
2. The app approach allows Adobe to control the viewing experience of the imagery.  Probably load higher quality versions of the imagery and maybe even render better colors to the screen. 

I'm confident there's a Apple TV version of Lightroom CC because iOS is such an important platform for Adobe already, and the code base for iOS and Apple TV (which i'm assuming is a version of iOS), probably isn't terribly dissimilar.  Coding an app for a new platform isn't a small feat, but I figured I'd start this thread to explore some pros and cons with everyone!
Thanks!
