LGs first webOS based TVs become available in the US

Question

LG has released its first televisions with webOS in the United States. The cheapest model, a 42″ TV is available at $649. LG acquired webOS from HP last year after HP bought webOS developer and smartphone manufacturer Palm. The TVs are for sale at several U.S. online retailers and are all of the LG LB6300 series with different screen sizes.

WebOS is an operating system based on the Linux kernel and it makes it possible to write applications in HTML and Javascript. It was introduced in 2009 and should replace LGs current Netcast platform. LG also has made their own interface based on cards which each show different options and applications.

The cheapest webOS based TV is available at $649 and has a 42″ Full-HD screen. The most expensive LG webOS TV sells at $2000 and has a 65″ screen.

      It is now 2020, and the WebOS browser in LG Smart TVs (which I believe is Chromium-based) is still massively out of date and doesn't work properly with a ton of websites!
      The main problem is actually very simple. The browser doesn't support EMCAScript 2015 or ES6.
      Basically, translated from nerd speak, it doesn't work properly with modern code using new features created since 2015, so any newer websites will break unless they've been written to be compatible with ancient browsers and OSes.
      This should not be the case on a TV made in the current year. It should be running an up-to-date web browser, if not for convenience, then for SECURITY reasons as well!

      Hi all!
       
       
      I have a LG 42LB630V, with the latest firmware installed.
       
      I want to know if it is possible to change the audio language, for a mkv file that has more than an audio language and how to add external subtitles. Those embeded in mkv files are running ok.
       
      Thank you, 
      Cipria

      Hello everybody,
       
      I'm French and new on this forum.
       
      I would like to know if it was possible to delete pictures which are "by default" in the storage of my LG webOS TV.
      I can see those pictures in Smart Share and, in some ways, it "pollute" my pictures.
       
      I'm talking about defaults pictures stored IN the TV like the picture of the "red balloon", etc.
       
      Any idea ?
       
       
       
      My TV : 42LB650V
      Firmware : 04.0.13 ? (don't remember exactly)
