At times you might want to rename your LG TV. Changing your LG TV’s name will be ideal if you have multiple LG TVs in your house.
LG TVs come with various features, including smart connectivity, out-of-the-world display, and some nifty little options like the ability to change the name of the TV.
The option to change the LG TV name is buried deep inside the Settings page, which makes it challenging for new users to rename the LG TV.

Change LG TV Name With LG ThinQ App
Did you know you can also change your LG smart TV name using the LG ThinQ app for Android and iOS?
If changing the TV name using the remote is not convenient for you, follow the steps below to rename LG TV using the LG ThinQ app.
Firstly, make sure the LG ThinQ app is paired with your TV. If not, do it first.
Open the ThinQ app on your phone.
Tap the particular LG TV whose name you want to change.
Tap the three dots icon to open Settings.
Scroll down and tap Product nickname.
Enter the name, and you are good to go.
Why Change LG TV Name?
By default, your LG TV name will be set to the model number. For example, if you own an LG TV with the model number ‘LG39LB650V’, then your TV’s name will also be LG39LB650V.
When you search for your TV on the network, this is the name that will pop up.
Not everyone likes to keep the model number as their LG TV name, or some might have multiple LG TVs in their house.
It will be even worse if you have multiple LG TVs of the same model.
So it will be better to change the TV name ASAP so that you can avoid guesswork and confusion next time you try to connect to your LG Smart TV.
