  1. My point was more that instead of blaming LG for an outdated buggy insecure third party application that the manufacturer dropped support (for several years) for Unix based systems, of which webOS is one, and streaming providers provided dedicated applications for webOS and websites providers used better available alternatives the easier life will be for everyone. These guys have apparently produced an independent third party version of Flash , so you could try it: http://smartflashplayer.com. It purports to work on LG & Samsung (because they have the same issue with Flash as well). Let us know how you get on. Basically Flash is terrible, do everything you can to avoid using it.
  2. Sadly Adobe Flash is an ever changing piece of software and LG probably (somewhat understandably) do not want to spare the time and considerable expense of trying to constantly back-port fixes to earlier versions of their products. Streaming can easily be supported by friendlier non plug-in methods such as HTML 5, you just have to hope that the streaming provider finally recognises how bad Adobe Flash is and moves to something better or produces a dedicated app for webOS. As a consumer this is where you come in, go nag the provider.
  3. The answer is you probably will not be able to, unless they are specifically designed for a LG webOS TV. Remember that webOS is not a Windows PC or an Android device.
  4. Hi, I am assuming that you cannot connect even though you are trying. Give us a little more background as to the problem you are having please.
  5. Firstly are you actually in the UK?
  6. webOS currently does not support Android apps.
  7. Have you all asked HBO to develop an app for webOS TV?
  8. Hi omgold, I have had my webOS TV since the middle of December 2016 and cannot say I have seen a problem with my remote control and the navigation around the various interfaces. However, I would say that I find the remote too small with the buttons themselves small, fiddly and too closely spaced for my big mitts. My kit: LG webOS (04.30.40) TV UH650V with AKB74915324 remote control
