Flash sucks.  Why would you want that running on your TV.  Also, I have the LG65UB9500 and it already support 4K streaming from Netflix and Amazon.

That is insane. I can only guess how many new features and bug fixes they will release to the older <2015 models. Probably none. I don't know who is to blame, the architects who created a platform that will only last around 2 years, or the CEOs who want to maximize profit no matter what. As an engineer, I totally doubt that the existing hardware is not capable of running webos 2.0, so my guess is that it is the profit margins that is to blame. Well, now LG just lost one customer, since future proof high end electronics is very high up on my list of priorities whenever I buy this kind of stuff that is so totally software focused (I mean, how much better can the hardware be?). Here, Apple and Microsoft behave much better, by releasing new software (often free of charge) to their existing older hardware...

 

So long, LG... So long Bean Bird, you are cool but your owners are nuts...

Hello everyone,

I just heard that LG will not update to webOS 2.0 2014 TV! It's just unacceptable, some of us paid a full salary for a nice Christmas present poisoned!
Maybe we could get together around the world to show our discontent? We could start a petition?

what about you?

Sorry for my bad English, i use google translator because I am French.

Very disapointing.... Watched the live stream and hoped to have some beans in my ears as they said that webOS 2.0 will only be compatible with those new models from 2015...

Purchased an 60LB650V two weeks ago, webOS 1.0 is just anoying....

LG Germany told me that there further will be no support for the 2014ers.... (see attachment - just in german language)

Best regards,
Pascal

People always ALWAYS get screwed by being an early adopter.  Now bend over and take it like a man!

Our only hope is XDA guys ;)
maybe someone is willing to put some development efforts into webos.
If not xbmc is a good idea on a Rpi or on a fire tv.. way better compare to our days "smart TVs"..

This is an absolute joke from LG! They have some cheek not making WebOS 2.0 available for 2014 TVs! Are they trying to lose every customer they had by implementing this measure. I will be call LG SUPPORT immediately to voice my discontent and frustration after spending nearly €1500 on their hardware to hear this news. Complete and utter joke LG Should have went with Samsung :(
