LG Powers up Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy Launch Party

After binge watching the Korean zombie series Kingdom, Netflix is out with a new binge-watch worthy series – The Umbrella Academy. The launch was held at the Shooting Gallery Studios in Makati where LG Philippines powers up the Seven Super Rooms to help LG OLED TV Ambassadors unlock each room.

To unlock a room, LG OLED TV ambassadors – model and actress Sanya Lopez, actor Benjamin Alves, Binibining Pilipinas International 2016 Nicole Cordoves, singer and director Khalil Ramos, actor Gil Cuerva and vlogger Dani Barretto – replicated the hero’s superpowers amplified by the super-tech provided by LG Philippines.

It was a fun and engaging activity as each of the LG OLED TV ambassador went live on instagram to seek help find clues and seek help from their fans in solving the puzzles to the rooms they were assigned.

Some of the challenges involved using LG OLED TV’s AI capability to give out commands and turn it to reality, igniting a karaoke song. It also used LG’s Crystal Clear sound to concoct the perfect cocktail while listening to a hero’s instructions.

Making the whole experience more immersive and true-to-life, LG OLED 4K TVs were installed in the rooms. As the world’s #1 OLED TV, LG powers up the Seven Super Rooms with cutting edge display and stunning visuals, intensified by cinema-quality Dolby Atmos sound. LG OLED TVs flaunt the clearest and most detailed pictures with realistic color and ultra-fast response times.

We’re excited to partner up with Netflix once again in providing Filipinos unique experiences through our state-of-the-art technology,” said LG Philippines VP for Home Entertainment Mr. Jongnam An. “We’re bringing the entertainment from onscreen to on-ground, staying true to our commitment in bringing memorable experiences through innovations.”

You can now stream The Umbrella Academy on Netflix, and truly immerse yourself in the stories you love  with either an LG 4K OLED TV and Nano Cell TV. The story revolves around estranged siblings reunited by their father’s death. With extraordinary superpowers, they are on a mission to unlock shocking family secrets and save humanity from an apocalyptic threat.

The series stars Ellen Page, Mary J. Blige and a stellar ensemble cast. And because Netflix is best watched with LG TVs, every purchase of the LG 4K OLED TV and Nano Cell TV until March 15, 2019 comes with six months of Netflix Premium access. With this amazing offer, you and your family can now enjoy The Umbrella Academy and all the other Netflix series and movies with a 4K UHD plan.
