The announcement marks the first-of-a-kind offering to improve accessibility and promote better hearing health for all Americans.

LG Smart TV Hearing Assessment Overview
The LG Smart TV assessment will offer users a personalized experience, providing tailored results and guiding users to the type of assistance they need. If the assessment reveals no hearing loss, the user will be guided to consider hearing protection through etymotic.com, a division of Lucid Hearing. For those individuals whose results reveal mild to moderate hearing loss, Lucid Hearing will recommend over-the-counter hearing aids, which would be conveniently delivered to their homes without a trip to an audiologist. And for those with an indication of severe hearing loss, a free hearing test with an audiologist is made available, at the nearest Lucid Hearing Center in a Sam’s Club location.
