LGs first webOS based TVs become available in the US


Alex

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.

Well done LG ! LG has the great chance to dominate the whole Internet TV Market..Apple and the other competitors have not got the right operating system for their TV´s..

 

I often said in the Past: WEB OS is the best OS for the whole mobile and TV market!

 

Greetings to Alex and to all Web OS and LG Fans!

      Model: 42UB700T-TH version 03.02.25. Has not got any software update since  3-4 Years - What a mess...…
      This TV is just a random box now... Once purchased this model - new version from LG was introduced; making this just a playing box...
      None of the recent OTT's can be installed..
      We need a fix or else some solution to it.
      Its really a disheartening experience after being loyal to this brand in any appliance we purchase.

      Hi,
      My TV is driving me nuts!
       
      I keep getting reminders for programs starting for programs I don’t watch or have never watched and 2. The tv even switches on for scheduled programs that I haven’t set.. actually I have only ever set one program reminder and that has now been deleted.
       
      I can’t see any programs in the reminder page or anywhere in the tv programmer?
       
      Short of resetting the tv I don’t know what else to try? And I don’t really want to do that until I know how the tv ended up like this? Plus I don’t want to have to reload and sign in to all my apps 😬

      I hope LG will consider to enable the Disney+ Hotstar Apps for Model 2016 LG TV. My LG TV Model is 55UH617T.  I've raised this concern few times and hope LG will take necessary action.

      I have a LG TV model: 47LB652V-ZA, webOS version 1.4.0-2523 (afro-ashley). Why isn't Spotify supported for this TV if its from 2014 and it says that devices from 2013 and onwards will be supported

      Hello everyone, I have this issue with my 49" LG TV (Model number: 49UN71) that has just been stuck on WebOS 03.10.60 with no way to update it to the latest version of WebOS. I don't know if this is normal or not, but I think that it's a bit particular that my 2020 TV is running a firmware update from 2017 with no updates on the horizon. Please leave a comment if you know what I might do in this situation!
      Thanks

      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)
