Smart TV Does Not Support x265/HEVC

Posted 05 November 2015 - 02:54 AM

Our LG Smart TV (purchased around 2013) does not support the new x265/HEVC standard.
I have 2 curious questions:

1) Will it be able to support the format via a simple firmware update (assuming the manufacturer decides to do so)?
2) Does the new format require a different type of hardware (prompting a new purchase)?

Your help is welcome.

Your best bet is to ask the manufacturer. They are going to know what their hardware can do via upgrades.
