No Netflix App for LG 49UF7787

Question

Hello all,

 

I have just bought an LG 49UF7787 from Germany. After setting it up, the preinstalled Netflix app wanted me to update itself. It does not work without updating. When I try to update, it gives me "content not available" error. It is not even listed in the all apps section.

 

Is it something related to the TV itself or a general Netflix app problem on WebOS 2.0?

 

Thanks,

 

TU

Nope. No app for that model (I have the same, just 55"). It seems that there is no LG app for many LG tv's produced in 2015. According to some sources it may arrive by the end of march. Stupid LG, and stupid webos....

I was using Netflix in 4K before last update where I went to reset TV to factory settings, after that I have same issue.

 

Official statement of LG Croatia is that Netflix is playing movies in only 30 FPS where my TV is running at 60 FPS.

I have 49UF8507 model.

It is a shame for LG to sell a smart TV without support to very basic and common apps like Netflix.

You know their argument (if we can call it an argument at all) is quite flawed. Your TV did not become 60FPS capable overnight. It had the same hardware before and after the firmware update. It's about something that LG have broken with their firmware on specific tv models without previously reconciling it with Netflix. So its now up to Netflix (or who ever is developing these apps) to develop the new app which can work under new conditions which were enforced by LG - the company which obviously does not give a rats ass about customer experience....

Or its up to LG to fix what they have broken with new firmware update. I've seen cases on the net where Netflix app become available on some models after the firmware update...

      Short answer: Something on my network is causing the crashes.
      I had an extra router, so I put it between my network and the TV.  
      Netflix no longer crashes, and other apps no longer give me the dreaded, "This app will now restart to free up more memory" error.
       
      Longer answer: Netflix would regularly crash out to Live TV after 20-40 minutes of play. I've been on LG support with this for months. They've replaced the main board twice, and took it off-site where the problem could not be replicated.
      I reset the TV and connected it to my smart phone data plan (luckily just upgraded to 10 GB). No crashes. Put the TV back on my network, crashed after half an hour.
      I took the network cable out of the TV and plugged it into a spare WiFi router. This creates a small network of only one device (the TV). I no longer get crashes. 
      Unfortunately, this kills local network features like DLNA/Plex streaming and wireless display mirroring, but all Internet apps like Netflix and YouTube work flawlessly.
      I plan to narrow down which device(s) on my network is the cause of the crashes, but after 10 months of fighting this I'm just going to enjoy some 4K streaming for a while. If I learn anything new, I'll post it here.

      Hello,
      I've got LG 42LB650V-ZN webOS 1.4.0-2525. 
      Till yesterday Netflix worked perfectly but now I can only start any video from beginning. When I try to continue watching previously paused video or try to move forward, than I recieve an Error:
      "We're having trouble playing this title right now. Please try again later or select a different title" tvq-pm-100
      I've already tried restarting Tv, signing out and in, reinstalling Netflix, unplugging cables, restarting router without any effect.
      I hope someone know what to do.
      Thank you

      Three weeks now I can't view Netflix (UK). I have asked my broadband supplier  Virgin to reset DNS(they say they have done it but how does one check that), I've reinstalled the app a few times now, reset the hub, factory reset the TV, which is directly connected to the hub.  No change after all that.  Everything else works well.
      What can I do now?

      Greetings. First post here. I did a cursory search on my questions and found no answers. I have a model 49UH6100 and have three questions:
      1) The TV comes with a remote that has a dedicated Netflix button. But it does nothing. It would be convenient to have it bring up Netflix rightaway. Any idea on whether this button does anything at all?
      2) The Netflix app doesn't seem to show "My List" which is pretty standard on all Netflix apps that I have used, including my last LG smart TV (model 42LV5400). Any idea if My List is available?
      3) The TV allows user to save a screen capture, but there doesn't seem to be a way to offload it, to a USB stick, for example. It seems rather like a large omission not to have this capability.
       
      Thanks for answering any of the above questions.
