Can anyone tell me why i cant update flash player??

I bought this TV mainly for movie/football streaming and i cant even update Flash to watch

Can you give me a link where it says Flash was available or ever likely to be available on this TV?

These streams you are trying to illegally watch - have you approached the people who stream these to ask if they can stream in a format that you can watch on your TV - specifically bought to watch illegal streams?

Good luck with all of that.

OMFG, I cant beleive that I did it again .. NO FLASH Enabled Browser.


Back in 2011 I bought 55 inch 3d led TV and suprise no flash player support for web browser.

Just bought another LG TV 49LF6300 and guess what NO FLASH SUPPORT STILL  ...!!!!!


For god sake LG get with the program..   Hello Flash only one of the webs largest technologies on most website etc etc.


I tried to return the TV to the retailer for refund but No Luck.    My house is full of LG Product. I will no longer by LG Products if this is the standard of there technology.

It is not hard to get an app made that supports flash browser for there web-os  on these tv's 


PEOPLE POWER  if everybody lodges a complaint and stops buying LG perhaps they might PULL their fingers out and do something about it.


Very Unhappy customer here .

Seriously WHY do you automatically go to illegal watching situations??? I bought subscription to baseball & cannot watch due to flash plug-in problem. So I'm about to ask for help in here. So can some one please help me? Do I get preferential help if I'm not illegally watching baseball?

I now sit with the same problem - kind of a let down!

Our local stations have made it easy for us to stream instead of running it through our old architecture...which is a first for SA, but i didn't think i would be challenged with such a stupid problem as flash...

Is there not webOS apps that can resolve web browser streaming?

Don't get me wrong - LG is a great TV, and WebOS3 is a fast and convenient OS.

But NOT supporting Flash is a killer!


I spent a thousand dollars (thank goodness the space on the wall was too small for bigger TVs) to learn that I cannot watch my PAID subscription because of the lack of support for FLASH!


The bottom line: I would not buy any LG again, and I will strongly advise that people avoid it, since you (LG) intentionally restrict users from being free to fully enjoy it.


I would also advise users to stop caring about what or who is licensed or not. I have paid for hardware, I have paid for services, and I expect to get value for my money.

I'm fully agreed on above comments. But no luck. No any support from LG team. Same issue with my LG web os TV. That is the deference between Samsung and LG. LG is far behind on technology.

What a f****** TV. Can't install falshplayer

So maybe I am late to the party on reading these posts about LG TV's as I downloaded and signed into HBOGO on my new smart TV but receive an error message Flash plug-in installation is not supported on this device.... !  So that is it? nothing I can do to get around this and play HBOGO on my LG smart TV?

Bemused myself as to why these TV's don't support flash player yet you can watch YouTube on the tv which uses flash player,explain that one LG...

Actually YouTube will display videos in HTML5 is your application/device supports it.  So the YouTube app if created by themselves either renders HTML5 or they have baked in Flash support, I am going to take a guess at it being the former.

      We just purchased a new LG WebOS TV OLED 65" and running the setup through the app or the TV remote says it can't load the user agreement. This is blocking us from getting to streaming apps like Nexflix or any smart functions like Voice assistant.
      TV worked fine for a few days but voice assistant stopped working and after much effort LG tech said to  Reset to Initial Settings. Now we have mentioned no smart functions. TV is on ethernet and its browser functions on web fine. Tried running off neighbor's wifi with same results.
      Tried switching to different country, unplugging/hold power button for 20 seconds/wait one minute,  resetting TV multiple times, setting up remote again, ...
      Error message: Unable to Load User Agreements  A server error has occurred while downloading  the User Agreements. You must download and agree to the terms of the User Agreements to use this feature or application. Do you want to try to download them again… Unable to Load User Agreements  Sorry, but the User Agreements  can't be downloaded at this time…Please check your internet connection and try again later.    No change when trying over five days.
      Now there is no local company available to service TV. Maybe it's time to send it back and give LG TV a one star rating. I am willing to change motherboards but doubt if LG would go along with that.
      Anyone have any ideas.

      I have a 2 year old OLED55C9PTA. The current WebOS is at 6.0 while mine is still at 4.9.5-7. 

      Are we getting the WebOS updates? Is there anyway that I can manually update it to the latest WebOS?

      I can stream ABC content using either the iView app on our LG G1 65" OLED, or via the iView Android TV app that is installed on a Chromecast with Google TV that is plugged into one of the G1 HDMI ports. If I stream content using the app on the TV, every few minutes there's a momentary (fraction of a second) interruption to both sound and video. If I stream the same content using the app on the Chromecast, I get no such interruptions. Both TV and Chromecast are using wired Ethernet connections to the same switch, so I can't see that these interruptions are due to a network problem, or I'd see them on both devices. It would seem to be a problem with the app provided on the TV. Other streaming services that we access via apps on the TV (Netflix, Stan, Amazon Prime, etc) do not show the same problem.

      Every time we turn on our "smart" TV, it tries to connect to cable. We don't have cable. That's not very smart.
      Because we don't have cable, we have static; it's noisy and annoying until I can push enough buttons on the remote to get to something else.
      Is there a way to tell this thing not to boot into "TV" mode? (Best if it would remember what it was doing when I turned it off).

      Hi LG
      When playing a Dolby Vision file encoded in MKV container format, the image is green/purple in colour. A quick googling says, this occurs due the default media player in WebOS not able to decode Dolby Vision MKV container files properly.
      When will this be fixed?
