The sales person in showroom pushed for LG saying it has better sound and picture richness. But obviously didn't reveal big shortcomings of non-android smart TV in today's ecosystem. This is useless as you are not having freedom to install apps of your choice from playstore. I can't even get Sonyliv. Horrible OS. Now I am trapped for years after buying this TV. Don't buy LG or other non-android TV unless you can affford to throw it in weeks. When will LG grow up?
App must be available like hotstar voot, if these application is not available buying webos TV is waste of moneyBy LG LJ617T
Please bring app like hotstar and voot to India region, and web browser is very bad hangs alot and doesn't support flash player
Best advice you could probably get, Maybe stick with (Non-Smart) televisions but stay well away from anything they suggest is Smart.
The current Problems are....
The LG store is 95% down for apps, when an app updates it could take a few days before you run it again.
You have to wait anything from 30 - 60 seconds when you turn on the tv to change channel.
The tv guide is basically an app, so that also takes ages to open (if it's not open)
LG Technical Support are a complete waste of time, they would rather blame the app developer when the LG store is down.
Did I say it takes 30 - 60 seconds before you can use the telly? (it's the 1950's all over again)
Watching something on Iplayer at random times ' out of memory error ' pops up.
Sometimes the audio is out of sync.

Got an old

Turns out that even though, according to the Librarian of Congress' interpretation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act the unlocking of cellphones is illegal without carrier approval, is totally on the side of giving you said approval. Sprint announced today in a press release that they have no problem with you using your old Sprint phone on another network - so long as it's one of Sprint's own MVNOs (Mobile Virtual Network Operator). In essence, you can use your old Sprint phone on any network, so long as it's Sprint. The list of MVNOs that ride on Sprint's network is actually more than twenty operators long and includes popular names like Virgin, Boost, and Republic. Sprint's touting the option to use your old Sprint smartphone as the "Bring Your Own Sprint Device" program, taking the initiative to lower "the number of inactive phones in the market, diverting phones from landfills." Also, Sprint gets another paying customer without having to deal with the costs of subsidizing a new phone. A growing portion of the customers on Sprint's networks are on these MVNOs, which typically are of the pre-paid no-contract variety as opposed to the traditional post-paid contract system on which Sprint's network was built.
It's worth noting that Bring Your Own Sprint Device, as the name says, only applies to Sprint devices. And that's not just because Sprint hates that you happen to have sitting in a drawer. While it might be technically possible given the right proprietary bits to reprogram a Verizon phone to work on Sprint or vice versa (we may or may not have be done so with regularity ), it's a much more difficult endeavour these days. Besides, Sprint wants you to use their phones.
