Crunchyroll is a streaming service that mainly provides anime content after the day it was aired on TV for free. It features an ever-expanding library with more than 1000 titles, including new episodes, past seasons, and originals. Although it is free and has a premium version, you are out of luck if you are an LG TV user. i.e., the Crunchyroll app is unavailable on the LG Content Store for LG Smart TV.
Though the Crunchyroll app is not compatible with LG Smart TV WebOS, we will help you deal with it in alternative ways. i.e., you can cast the Crunchyroll app to LG TV from your smartphone. With the LG TV Plus, you can screen mirror your smartphone to your LG TV. The procedure is more similar to watching Crunchyroll on Samsung Smart TV.

There is no official announcement from the app developer about when it will be available for LG TV. While it is currently available for Android, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Android TV, Roku, Firestick, etc., we could expect the Crunchyroll WebOS version or LG TV app sooner.
