WebOS 3.0 is disppointing

I just received my 65# B6 OLED and was excited to experience WebOS 3.0.

 

The reality, however, is disappointing. 

 

The App Store is as limited as under 2.0. LG could not win significant partners since 2014. We are still stuck with Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon.e

and Plex. Plex, however, needs a content server and as such provides only a half-baked solution.

 

The Music apps like Pandora and Spotify are not of very much value - who wants to run their TV just to listen to music.

 

DLNA support and network stored movie management options are essentially the same as in 2.0. The UI still wastes critical estate for blown up title lines, and doesn't allow to manage shares in an intuitive manner and still cannot pick up individual network shares.

 

The rendering of the previews takes forever and even after hours of TV runtime can't produce a complete list. The square shaped preview is outdated compared to other solutions and the overall performance beyond content selection is rather sluggish. 

 

What is really aggravating that most reviewers completely ignore the shortcomings and praise it for a "great UI" (well maybe for the home screen).

 

SmartTV Remote lost all its advantages compared to the 2014 model. Unintuitive and unappealing the remote looks like any other cheap universal remote. Gee, in Europe and Asia customers at least get a more stylish design compared to the ugly brick in North America. 

 

Bottom line, LG buyers need to consider the additional cost for options like AppleTV or Kodi Box to overcome the limitations along with a better remote (e.g. Logitech Elite) which adds another 300-400$.  For a 3K TV a big disappointment. 

 

Would love to hear other buyers impressions.

      I have a 2014 LG Web os smart TV    ( 65UC970T ) and I don't have any access to apps.  There used to be a selection of apps and now there's none. How do I access them?

      Hello, I have LG OLED CX and recently the Youtube app has incorrect geographic data- CH. I am from Slovakia, the TV has never been to Switzerland. Nor physically, nor virtually (VPN). I am getting CH ads, which I dont mind so much, but I am afraid of possible in app geo restrictions.
      I already tried everything, even resetting the TV to default.  No other TV app is affected.
      Anybody please advise.

      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.
