    Hi, LG content store administrators! When will you give us Jio TV on WebOS. You have been left back by almost 2 years by other TV OS. At least compete with others in the present market. In the name of WebOS you are charging your customers heavily but you are not giving them even the minimum. Other TV manufactures e.g. MI, VU, Samsung, etc, are giving the world to their customers for a price as low as 60% of what you are charging. Still you have useless apps in your store which have no meaning at all for a TV and have left the stuffs that are inevitable in market. P K Prabhakar [email protected]

    Just for your amusement this is an example of the level of control I have on ALL LG TVs: the menus you see are custom made.

    Hi, HotStar is very popular application in india which allows you to watch tv shows/movies and lot more. I don't see its app available on LG Store. Any plan to launch Hotstar app for WebOS Store?? Thanks, Bhavesh

    It's on the Launcher screen. Watch this, for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48jgyug-58s

    those are probably thumbnails file metadata created by MacOSX, those are not visible in your computer because files with names beginning with a dot are considered "hidden" in all Unix-derived systems (Linux, MacOSX), due to FAT32 constraints it can't store thumbnails as resource forks (the MacOSX way), so it creates ._ files

    No I am not an LG employee and no one on this forum claims to be as this forum is a user to user site. Sorry if my question and statement sounded rude, but both I feel were valid.

    Me too. I've subscribed but so far will be unable to watch it. I have Fire TV but Amazon and Disney are not friends. Don't want to buy a Roku. No good Android TV boxes except Shield but it's long in the tooth. Thinking maybe a Chromecast Ultra via my tablet. CORDCUTTING IS HARD!

    Hi Darin, If you are opening a web page and you get a message "We have detected you are running an older version of Chrome" this is because the website is not detecting the browser correctly, but it is identifying that it is based on WebKit, which is is as is Chrome, Safari the upcoming Internet Explorer et al. There is nothing you can do about this apart from contacting the website in question and asking them to update the site to recognise and render the webOS browser correctly.

    No buddy, I don’t allow this here. You can take this behavior to another forum or Facebook, keep it off this site.

    Been waiting since Dec. 2017 for the HBO app. Gave up; I don't think they are going to bother. LG keeps saying its up to HBO, and HBO says its up to LG. I went and got a ChromeCast, has all the apps you'll need. I got the ChromeCast Ultra, which can be wired via CAT5 cable, so you don't tie up Wifi. Just plugged it into an empty USB port on the TV.

    This section of the forum is really aimed at those who develop apps for the platform, not those developers of the OS at LG.

    The LG remote was designed for small hands. I must use both hands to operate it. It was designed to be used in a lighted room. My TV is in a dark room. It was designed for persons with good eyes. I need glasses to see the tiny buttons. Anyone know of a full-function LARGE-BUTTON REMOTE ? Most common 'universal' remotes will change channels and volume,,, but that is all they can do. I watch AmazonPrime and need the movie-control buttons.

    Your problem is "vertical video syndrome" and I have not seen a TV that can do what you ask. If I read on internet it about this they say Portrait mode video is not video. So what can you do: Use a video editing program to rotate your video. It seems Plex is capable of handeling Portrait mode video. There is a native app for the LG tv for Plex Mount your TV on a wall and rotated it if needed. But in general, don't make Portrait video if you every want to see it on a TV.

    I used to use a Sony MDR-1000x with it. Now using a Bose QC35 II and an Anker SoundBuds Slim. All working well, I find it the most useful feature of the TV. No need to worry about the neighbours and me listen the TV too loud.

    This area of the Forum is called "LG webOS... because the operating system is WEB OS, not Android. I don't think there would be any use for the Google Play Store on your LG TV.

    @txydas Hi, thanks. I tried to find the item on ebay. But I realized that here, in IRAN, sanctioned by Ultimate Satan Administration (USA), it is a tedious task or even impossible to buy such a thing through ebay or amazon or ... , because a TV WiFi RF module may be used in an imaginary nuclear warhead, according to them. LOL! anyway, per the experiences reported in this forum, I tried to see what the module is. At the first glance, and more and more scope, no obvious fault was detected. everything seemed to be OK. So I just disassembled the module and the ribbon cable. I experienced that the TV had little or no sense to magic control. So, the module was not a thing that could be ignored. So I took some photos and reassembled them again after the only common remaining task, i.e. cleaning the module and connecting cable both at the module's and mainboard's header by a spray solvent. And now, it is for 3 days that the TV has operated flawlessly. Everything is OK; Magic control, WiFi, Screenshare, No message, No pause or delay in the stream display ... I wonder what the bug was and wonder whether it would be coming back? Who knows? It was recommended to me to substitute the TV to another model or brand. It is not my decision for now. So, It may be helpful if the users, who have replaced the module, say in please that if any similar tasks had been already done before replacing?

    Hi Azam, Yes Hotstar are developing an app, but at the moment it is many months behind schedule probably because they needed to update the backend of their infrastructure to update/remove outdated and esoteric software, i.e. Adobe Flash. Forum user have in the meantime reported that they are now able to view the Hotstar website via the webOS browser without issue, which is something they were unable to do previously.

    Good article. Its very true and goes inline with why people complaining that their old tvs cant get an update, who may not realize that every year hardware is updated, like buying a computer. Eventually it will be outdated. Back in the day you could buy a tube tv and sit on it for 10 years. Nowadays, screens and hardware is accelerating so fast. 8 years ago I bough a 50" plasma and still use it today. It's not smart and only has 720p. Do I throw it away for a 4k and smart interface because I want newer features? Probably at some point. I always tell people with computers and laptops, don't spend on the top of the line hardware because it will be outdated in a year or two. I bought my 50" plasma on black friday 8 years ago for $600. Today I can get a 50" 4K LG smart tv for $299 on sale!

    Hi, i have webos 4.0 on my tv. LG media player has lowest subtitle position "-2", but i would like them even lower (in black bars when letterbox movie is played). Is there a way or tweak to do that? I noticed that position -2 is higher in webos 4.0 compared to webos 3.5 Unfortunately kodi is not for webos, Is there other media player for webos that plays video files from usb? i cant find none.

    With regards to users wanting a Hotstar app as opposed to viewing in the webOS browser this is because in the past the website would not load due to Adobe Flash/JavaScript issues. If the site is now working it is most likely Hotstar have addressed these issues.

    We have an AT&T Uverse Gateway which supports 2.4 GHz (WPA/WPA2) and 5 GHz (WPA) bands in automatic steering mode (see att.com/enhancedwifi). Renaming the latter to a new SSID, split the two bands. Now our LG TV connects happily to the 2.4 GHz band. Before trying this also tried turning off the automatic date setting but to no avail. My older LG O/S doesn't have quick start option.

    Hello George, Thanks for your response and the clarification on the platforms available for the NBA app. That helps me understand why it's not available. I will ping NBA tv on whether they are developing an app for webOs.

    YouTube should run fine as it detects a compatible browser and then only uses HTML. Silverlight like Flash is pretty much dead in the water and no manufacturer if their browser does not support it now is going to bother building in support for it. Out of interest why do you want to watch it in the browser and not the app?

    Thanks for your answer. We do have a few ROKU’s and a couple of Apple TV ‘s, so going through them works just fine. I guess I’m just born in the wrong time and expect it to be like the Jetson’s where everything blows me away at its efficiency and futuristic abilities, hehe. Alas, we live in a world where things may not live up to expectation. Appreciate the time you took to answer! Regards, Marisa

    Great news friends! We just don't need anymore DS Vídeo (too many years preying to release this shit), now something really better is available, please install the emby server on the Diskstation, and the Emby app on your LG Smart TV (webos 3.0 or later), just one word: FANTASTIC! P.s. Plex runs as a vomit.

    I think I'm having the same problem as Tom S. with by B6P, though after factory reset my TV would respond to the magic remote for a brief period...some of the time. After many restarts, I finally got through setup, and now I get the "Bluetooth service needs to be initialized." message every time I push the wheel/select button, so TV functionality seems severely limited. I've ordered, and will try using, the AKB73975702 remote, and will post whether that worked for me too. UPDATE: After some time (maybe six restarts), a message pops up saying that the magic remote has paired...and the TV seems to be back to full functionality for now. I'm sorry that the resolution seems so mysterious (not sure why it paired then and not any of the many previous attempts).

    First To Mass Produce Large Screen OLED TVs, LG Poised to Lead Market in Advanced Premium TV Technologies BERLIN, Aug. 29, 2018 — Already a leader in advancing TV innovation with its OLED TVs, LG Electronics (LG) is introducing the world’s first 8K (7680 x 4320) OLED TV. Previewed at IFA 2018, the 88-inch class 8K LG OLED TV features over 33 million self-emitting pixels to produce the unmatched contrast ratio and true blacks that define OLED TV’s iconic picture quality. With OLED TV shipments in the market expected to double in 2018 and reach over nine million units by 2022, LG will continue to increase the OLED share in its premium TV portfolio and drive large scale consumer adoption of OLED TVs. While the 8K TV market is still in its infancy, it is expected to grow to more than 5 million units by 2022, and LG is committed to leading the ultra-premium market with its 8K OLED TV technology. Despite advancements in LCD field, OLED has been often referred to as the “nextgeneration display technology” because it emits its own light, eliminating the need for any kind of backlighting. This allows for state-of-art TVs which redefine both the picture quality and the product design. Not only was LG able to pioneer such technologies, but it was also able to successfully market them. “LG’s first 8K OLED TV is the pinnacle of technological achievement and the next evolutionary step in display technology,” said Brian Kwon, president of LG Home Entertainment Company. “4K OLED played a major role in reshaping TV industry and LG is confident that 8K OLED will do the same.” LG introduced the 88" 8k OLED TV at CES 2018
