I have an LG-43UN73006LC purchased in the UK - but it does not have a My5 app for watching Channel 5 related programmes in catch up.
Channel 5 is one of the main 5 programme channels here in the UK - so why no support from LG?
How can they call this a Smart TV without support for the basic UK Channels?
Even my ancient Humax box had My5 app
LG's webOS 6.0 smart TVs have a new UI, NFC-equipped remote
The new smart TV software from LG also has more voice commands for use with Alexa or Google Assistant
Seven years after introducing webOS as the platform for its Smart TV lineup, LG is introducing version 6.0 with a new look and feel for its 2021 4K and 8K TVs. The old blade lineup of apps is gone, with a more modern tile-based layout. LG Home Entertainment president Park Hyoung-sei calls this “the most significant update since we first introduced webOS in 2014.”
An upgraded version of its ThinQ AI has more voice command control than ever whether you’re using Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. For traditional control, this year’s edition of its Magic Remote is a bit more standard than some of the previous versions, but also includes NFC for the first time, which allows users to share content from phone to TV (and back) simply by tapping it.
The new software includes Magic Explorer, which can pull up related content about actors, locations and items of interest for “select broadcast channels, while Next Picks analyzes viewing preferences to suggest things you might like. There’s no word on opt-in or opt-out preferences for these settings, but we’ll ask about them as the show progresses next week. It’s also unclear whether the updates will extend to older TVs in LG’s lineup, one way or another, the old HP software platform is still rolling on, powering new OLEDs and LCDs for another year.

I have a problem updating or installing amazon prime video app. When hitting the update button (after several factory resets) it simply says "Application has not been installed. Try again" after it stops.
This possibly happened due to a cancelled update a week ago.
Any ideas how to fix this? Factory reset doesn't work. App won't run without update, and update won't run.
Is there a way I can permanently change the rakuten app that starts on the 'movies' button with another app, my preference would be Plex.
For that matter I'd like to switch the amazon-video button to Youtube.
Also, how do I delete the preinstalled apps?
Tv model is 55UM7050PLC if that makes any difference..
