HBO GO App for WebOS 2.0? (65UF8500)

Question

Hi,

 

I recently purchased an LG 65UF8500 from Best Buy as an open box deal.  I was hoping that HBO GO would be available, but it appears that it isn't available for WebOS 2.0?  

 

Can someone please confirm?

 

Thank you,

 

Derrick

I have the same model LG as you, 65UF8500. HBOGO is not available on WebOS 2.0. Currently, the only "premium" apps available are the big 4.. Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and Vudu. The first two mentioned, Netflix and Amazon, offer UHD/4k streaming. One glitch to note.. between updating your TV's WebOS and your apps, Amazon can get glitched where it won't qualify you for UHD and you won't have access to the UHD library. To fix this, just uninstall the Amazon app (you don't even have to unlink your account) and then re-install the app and voila! :-)

 

HBOGO isn't offering 4k yet...but stay tuned....an internal memo says otherwise.

Oh, and once you "see" actual 4k in your home...you will HATE 1080p.

When I say "HATE," I mean to use a stronger word, but need to check the dictionary to find it.

Be warned  :blink:

      Hi. I've got a MKV file with 20+ subtitles. Subtitle I need is at position 18. When I connect the USB disc to the TV,  default LG media player plays it, but when I try to select the 18th subtitle, media player only shows 12... no more... No way I can access subtitles more than that.
      This is a clear bug. Any way to fix this? Is there a better media player app I could install  that can handle more than 12 subtitles in an MKV file?
      Thanks

      As a client, need a Kodi server running on local network to consume the JSON-RPC API.

      It is being implemented in Javascript using REACT JS.
      I'm looking for developers for the GUI.
