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...

      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.

      I can find only one app on my LG PF1500W webOS enabled LED projector , the accuweather app. I can't find any other apps like Netflix. How can I run Netflix on this projector here in New Zealand? Is the LG content store not enabled in NZ? I have ordered the projector through Amazon US. Everything else seems to work fine. Including the LG TV Plus android app.

      The Netflix App only connects to one Netflix server.
      I have deleted the app and reinstalled in. The TV works with NOWTV, YouTube via LAN cable or wifi. Netflix work using the APP on my LG 5.1 surround sound blu ray system. I have run out of ideas. Has anyone else got the same problem?
