HBOGo / SHOWTIME Anytime


Recommended Posts

I'm sure there is a good reason that HBOGO and Showtime Anytime are not available as premium apps on the new OLED 2016 models but seriously, but it's so disappointing. I have a cablebox and I'm looking to simple my life through smart tv and would prefer if I could just cancel my HBO on demand subscription and showtime subscription through cable and pay for the Apps because I never watch live tv. I also don't want to have purchase a Roku or Amazon stick. I mean maybe I should Roku remotes could control my tv?

Anyway here is one request - please add HBOGO and Showtime anytime to the LG smartv webos3.

I shopped all around for TVs and purchased LG because I respected the brand. Not anymore. This is pretty piss poor on LG's part, in my opinion. I see the release in December of 2014 that says it is added to their WebOS. . .

"The HBO Go comes standard on the Premium Content menu, which is part of the WebOS interface used on the most recent LG TVs" --  However this is not the case. 

 

Hey LG -- When are you going to fix this? All of your customers are here waiting on your response to this topic.

 

Thank you.

The official position from LG support  is that this is controlled by the app developer and they would have to build the app and submit for webOS.  The request would need to be directed at the developer of the app, similar to how app developers submit their apps to iOS and Android. Contacting HBO support and they push back towards LG as having to build the app which is not usually how it goes. The app developer would download the OS SDK and build their app. If LG doesn't pre-install the  app, it needs to be submitted to the app store.

So in a nutshell, if you want an app, contact the app developer/company to build it.  However, I'm sure there are many others who are asking for this and it wouldn't hurt to contact HBO

That's true, however, LG could vastly speed things up by officially contacting HBO and ask them to work on their WebOS app.

I have already contacted HBO and it wouldn't hurt if you at LG can do the same as well... thanks.

You do understand that we are not LG and this website is only a user to user support forum for lg webos and legacy webos products? I do agree that LG should contact HBO.

      LG USA’s latest collaboration in their year-long Only on OLED content campaign is a three-part content series featuring popular Kansas City Chiefs football tight end Travis Kelce and a look at his ambitions not only for the upcoming football season which kicked off this past week but also off the field as a fashion brand founder, business owner, and philanthropist.

      The three-part series is airing on with special cut downs from the episodes available on and promoted across the .

      Episode 1 of “Travis Kelce, Only on OLED” which debuted last week, answers the question, “What’s next for Travis Kelce?” Accompanied by his close friends, the series chronicles Kelce’s next big idea, “365 Days of Travis,” a calendar allowing his fans to get more of him every day of the year. Throughout the series, viewers will see the calendar come to life from concept to photo shoot, and ultimately the big unveil.

      “Partnering with LG in the lead up to my season was a natural fit,” said Kelce. “There is no better way to watch football or any sport than on an LG OLED TV. I was stunned by the picture quality, its ability to capture the speed of sports in intense, crisp detail and deliver an experience that made you feel like you were at the game. Working with them on this series also let me show people who I am off the field. I appreciate LG giving me the opportunity to share that with others.”

      “To highlight LG OLED’s ability to deliver an unrivaled sports viewing experience at home, it was only fitting that our next Only on OLED collaboration be with one of football’s biggest champions as the pro and college football seasons get underway,” said Peggy Ang, LG’s Senior Vice President of Marketing. “With our Only on OLED activations, we are bringing to our consumers unique content that goes beyond the game and highlights the stories behind today’s biggest athletes off the field.”

      The Only on OLED campaign focuses on key consumer passions in sports, movies and gaming that are drivers for TV purchases. To reach consumers, the campaign features unparalleled access to unique events and moments best enjoyed on LG OLED TVs. Earlier this summer, LG released Hangin’ With Kuz, a social media series featuring basketball star Kyle Kuzma which offered fans a glimpse into his new home and off-court passions. The program kicked off earlier this year with a live celebrity gaming showdown between multi-platinum-selling music mogul DJ Khaled and world-renowned actor Megan Fox.

      I have just bought an OLED 48C14LB, and have mostly got to grips with the OS, except for the programme recording function.
      I tested this by recording the news on BBC1,  via 'Programme Scheduler' whilst watching live tv on ITV3.  All worked ok with the recording  playing back from the 128GB stick in 'USB 1'.
      Having since tried to record something else in the same way, I get an on screen message saying that the recording is about to take place, and I click on 'OK'.
      When the recording starts, the tv station that I am watching switches to the station that I want to record from, and when I switch back, I get a message saying that the recording I have set up is not possible if I change channels.
      Any help wil be much appreciated.
