This partnership has made it easier than ever to watch thousands of hours of entertainment, just for older adults,” said Jerry Goehring, Saltbox TV CEO & Co-founder. “In addition to entertainment, Saltbox TV offers fitness, health, and wellness resources to help millions of older adults living at home.”
About The Independa Health Hub
Unlike other communications platforms and apps, The Independa Health Hub is the only resource integrated seamlessly within the operating system of the LG television. Rather than accessing a third-party application for communication purposes, the Health Hub notifies viewers of important communications while watching TV or other streaming services.

- Two-way video calls with loved ones and doctors — social and clinical all in one
- Pharmacy Rx discounts
- Dental discount offering
- 24/7 dental televisits
- 24/7 doctor televisits
- Entertainment programming
- Medical grade health videos
- Wellness videos that cater to every ability level
