SIMPLINK is a feature that helps the users to operate the TV with multiple HDMI connections. You use your remote control to maintain the working of all the HDMI devices that are connected. By using SIMPLINK, it converts your TV into a huge multimedia display by syncing with external apps or services. It uses a single connection and also makes it more convenient to stream Netflix, Hotstar, and other platforms on your LG smart TV. The SIMPLINK operates with HDMI-CEC Standards (Consumer Electronics Control). An HDMI cable is used to access the SIMPLINK to your LG TV.
