LG Smart World account issues


figgy

Question

I have an LG Smart World Irish account. Signed in but there are very little Apps (IPTV BBC iPlayer etc..) Apps available on the Irish store. I then created a 2nd UK based account thinking it will be a workaround to getting the Apps onto the TV that I need. When I try signing in with the UK account it will not let me giving me "Cannot use this emil for the selected country. Please create another account" I switched region to uk but same issue. Changed the DNS also but still same issue. Does anybody now what the issue with this would be ?

Thanks,

Tony.

I've been having similar issues, though I am being sneaky and trying via a dns service to make the tv and other electrical things think I'm in the USA rather than new Zealand, where the content market is pretty much zero. The lgtvapps.com page won't accept the login I set up on the lg page when registering the products I got last week, nor when I ask for a password reset will it send anything, on both cases it says my email doesn't exist. So I used a different email address to start again but still same issue. I have to say the user experience with lg is a huge turnoff, and this rubbish about restricting app content by region seems very stupid, I moved from the uk to AUSTRALIA and then here, luckily I bought new tvs in each country but I assume from all this bollocks that a tv bought in Nz won't work in England,or vice versa? Have others had the same problems re logins, location and the lg services?

Thanks.  I tried that, but it is still limited to regional countries, that also don't have access to Netflix for example.  I rang LG today to complain about what is basically false advertising in this part of the world - none of the 'smart' functions actually work on their TV's here in NZ, in part LG's doing and in part because NZ is just a backwater really.... and they confirmed there is no way to change the actual region that the TV is set to as this is based on manufacture, they said it's hardware related.  I wasn't quite convinced but that was their reasoning - i have tried to use my overseas DNS settings with no luck either.  So, suffice to say i'm less than impressed with this TV and the limitations it has imposed by geography that are not spelt out in the marketing campaign.

      Disruptive Concept in Ownership Extends Usability of Appliances
      That Can Be Upgraded to Meet New Usage Trends, Patterns

      SEOUL, Jan. 25, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) is set to change the existing paradigm of home appliance usage with an upgradability option that adapts to the unique and changing lifestyles of customers. Developed under the concept, Evolving Appliances For You, LG upgradable appliances have the capability to incorporate new features developed in the future based on owners’ usage patterns and habits.
      What upgradability brings to the table is the ability to add a new function or convenience to an existing appliance through new software, new hardware or both. For example, users can improve the performance of the LG PuriCare air purifier when a new pet joins the family by upgrading with the Pet Care Filter to more thoroughly filter out pet fur and dander from the air.1 Upgradable LG dryers can be enhanced later on to handle different climates and fabrics with new accessories and software downloadable from the Upgrade Center in the LG ThinQ app.
      For the customer, upgradability enables the LG appliance to keep up with changing trends and usage patterns over the many years of that product’s lifespan, extending usefulness many times over. In all, LG is planning to introduce approximately 20 upgradable appliances this year.2
      “Upgradeability challenges the idea that expensive appliances are designed with planned obsolescence in mind,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “We want customers to experience the feeling of getting a new washer or refrigerator throughout the entire lifecycle of an LG appliance, not just the first time they bring the item home.”
      Customers in specific markets can expect to see LG’s first upgradable washer and dryer later this year. Follow LG’s Home Appliance Instagram account () for more information when available.

      1   Pet Care Filter sold separately.
      2  Upgradable products and features may vary depending on model and region.

      Anyone else experiencing this? With an app open, if I hit the home button and return to the Home Screen that app relaunches on its own within a few seconds. The two that I have experienced this with so far are Disney+ and LG Channels. I saw a post where users were experiencing this with Sling and had no resolution to the problem. WebOS version number 03.25.11. It is very annoying and makes the experience using WebOS horrible.

      I purchased an LG 43up7550 television.
      My problem is with the Lg content store, whereas the Tv is connected to the internet and by the browser can be searched on the internet, the LG content store has a connection error and can not see any application on it and this error occurs when I try to open any factory installed the app on Tv. 
      I set DNS to google DNS server (8.8.8.8) but this problem still exists.
      please help me for solving this problem.
