Read this: LG TVs get Freeview Play at last

Summary: Originally touted to arrive on 50 LG TVs over the summer, the first Freeview Play update released in May added little, if any, functionality. You can already find Freeview Play on Panasonic TVs and PVRs, as well as on TVs from JVC and PVRs from Humax. - link

David: Freeview Play is on Panasonics and now LG (finally all four channels!), while Android Sonys have YouView. Samsung seems to be a hold out, with all four channels available (as they have for some years) available, but not via the EPG.

I suspect any change would not happen until 2017 models come along, and of course any software change is always a pain. And the particular software (Freeview Play, Freetime or You View) would have to be paid for, etc.

I suspect a look at AV Forum or similar is the best way to find out. To be honest, I'd never buy a set for the software - thats going to change anyway, platforms grow old, and its easy enough to add a box if needed. Picture, size and number of connections are the way to make sure that the TV you buy now will be fine five years from now.
