LG adds HBO Go to smart TVs

 

LG announced the addition of the HBO Go on-demand TV service to its smart TVs. HBO Go is available on LG TV's going back to 2012 models. LG said it's the first manufacturer to add HBO Go to its system. The HBO Go comes standard on the Premium Content menu, which is part of the webOS interface used on the most recent LG TVs. Users can also cast content from a smartphone or tablet to the LG TV.

I purchased a 65UF8500 back in April (or thereabouts), and have just recently tried to get HBO Go on there, to no avail.  It's not in the LG Store, I tried going through the web to do it, again unsuccessfully, and I've called LG twice about this, the first time the lady wasn't sure what I was talking about, the second time the guy confirmed that there's no way to get it on an LG smart TV, and that there's never been a way...despite the press announcements made in December of 2014 that it was now available for all LG smart TV going back to 2012 models.  I don't know if LG and HBO had a falling out, or if they decided to make it so TV's manufactured after the press release didn't have the feature, or what, but I'm a little pissed that my Samsung which cost 2/3 what my LG cost was able to get it set up in under three minutes.

 

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

ALEX,

Why can't we get the app? Why must we go through Amazon?

Because HBO has not developed an app for webOS from what I understand.  Going through Amazon was just a workaround as an option for some. 

HBO is also available on Amazon Channels now.

The provided information shows that LG did not do what they said.  At least 4 different recent releases of LG smart TVS lack HBO go. 

Adding insult to injury. ALex the only "advanced member"  which began this thread with stating HBOGO was added 

then puts in a sales line for the channels, encouraging me to pay for HBO twice once with cable (hence why I want HBO GO) and again with

an amazon channel or someone elses paid service.  

 

 

Just silly. 

LG is behind the curve on this.

This topic was started in 2014 when an article came out that HBOGO was added. I agree that Lg may have misled users. I was simply stating that Amazon may be an alternate solution to watch HBO as sling may be as well. I will close this topic to not cause anyone else to be misled. 

Please start a new topic if you have HBO questions or use the search bar to find other existing topic regarding HBO.

      Hi,
      Got a UH850V with version 05.60.05 No new version found. 
      First my Disney+ app stopped working. All other apps work and my Disney subscription works everywhere else. 
      Disney support told me to delete app and install again. 
      Then I discovered that LG content store is not working. Get this error: “( -200), hostname does not match server certificate”
      anyone else got this?

      FuboTV’s fantastic live TV streaming service finally arrives on LG TVs
      FuboTV, one of the best over-the-top services for sports enthusiasts, is finally arriving on newer LG Smart TVs.
      While the app was already available on many set-top boxes like the Apple TV or Chromecast, it’s now available on LG’s native webOS platform on 2018–2021 Smart TV models (including LG’s fantastic OLEDs). That’ll give any consumers with newer LG models the ability to access the service’s 100-plus sports and entertainment channels directly from their sets, rather than having to rely on a third-party device for access.
      “Over 90 percent of FuboTV’s viewership is on the big screen and today’s launch on LG Smart TVs expands FuboTV to even more smart and connected TV platforms,” Mike Berkley, FuboTV’s chief product officer, told The Verge.
      Starting at $65 per month, FuboTV offers one of the most robust catalogs of sports-specific programming, though it has plenty of entertainment and news channels peppered in as well. ESPN, ESPN 2, Olympic Channel, CBS Sports Network, Big Ten Network, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2, and beIN Sports channels are among those available on the service’s base tier.
      But FuboTV really shines with its sport package add-ons, which offer more diversity in additional sports channels than similarly priced live TV services like Hulu with Live TV or YouTube TV. That said, regional sports networks are fairly limited, but that’s a persistent problem that plagues nearly all OTT live streaming services — not just FuboTV.
      Users on LG Smart TVs will now be able to easily record an entire series with a single click, customize their guide with their favorite channels, and add up to six user profiles, each of which will support personalized recommendations and user-specific recordings.
      Unfortunately, one of FuboTV’s best features, the MultiView tool that supports up to four simultaneous channel streams at once, is still limited to the Apple TV, a spokesperson told The Verge. But hey, at least you’ll be able to use the app on your fancy LG OLED without the help of a third-party box, stick, or dongle.

      Hello,
      The WiFi would abruptly disconnect and the smart TV becomes extremely slow when navigating to the settings and becomes almost unresponsive. Unplugged, waited overnight and restarted, the WiFi connected for a minute or so, and again the same issue. The mouse cursor would disappear after few seconds and navigation only possible with the up/down/right/left key. WiFi list is empty and the TV keeps "searching..", even if it lists my WiFi, after entering the password (takes a very long time) it gives a message "Cannot connect to the network, retry" 
      Tried the following options and no luck, can anybody help??
      - Unplug the TV, WiFi router and restart
      - Set the date and time manually in the TV
      - Turn off Quick Start
      - Selected appropriate country in location
      - Firmware updated (No more updates found) 
      TV model: 43UJ632T-TA, Software Version: 06:00:15, webOS Version: 43UJ632T-TA
      WiFi is 5 GHz with more than 120 mbps connection, couple of other devices connected without issues.

      HBO Max came out recently and unfortunately they haven't built an app for lg webOS TVs yet. 
      The following devices are supported by HBO Max. If a device is supported, you'll find the HBO Max app in the app store.
      Android phones and tablets (with Android OS 5+) Android TV (OS 5+) Apple TV (4th gen and later) Chromebooks Chromecast iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch (with iOS 12.2+) PC and Mac computers PlayStation 4 Samsung TV (2016+) Xbox One So if you have any of these devices hooked up to your LG webOS TV your solution is to use one of these methods.
