HotStar App for LG WebOS TV

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

 

I have 2014 LG 47LB750T tv and I am happy with the TVs performance. It has just updated to newer 05.05.25 firmware. New apps are getting added in the store.

 

I have been following HotStar app in my phone from quite a long time. It has a very good list of shows and movies list. I was wondering if we can have HotStar app for our WebOS tv as well. Recently DittoTV app has too been added which is a boon for those who have frequent DTH cable connection problem. It directly streams live over the Internet and package is very economical.

 

If LG Developers can also introduce HotStar app for our LG TV it will be a big boost to the platform as it is very popular in India. They also have their own Original series just like Netflix which are also very good. So requesting devs to kindly introduce HotStar app for our WebOS TVs. Thank You.

Screen sharing while using your System  in window 10

Mine is extremely frustrating it have its days one day it works okay one day I'm having trouble connecting then the next it finally connects stay connected for about 10-30 minutes then the tv says Its  disconnected from the laptop the lg tv and windows 10 laptop are both new so it has to be a lg or Microsoft issue now I'm currently stuck with tv cast app which works fine connecting to my my   tablet.😜

had written to hotstar team for this and got below reply

 

Currently, our Hotstar App is not compatible with Smart/Android TV. However, it is in the Development phase and will be made available soon. Once we upgrade our platform to HTML 5 it should be compatible with WebOS as well. As this may take a while, your patience is appreciated. 

In the meanwhile, you can watch videos on your Smart TV using a Chromecast, Apple TV and Amazon Fire Stick Device.

Thank you for writing to Hotstar.

We at Hotstar appreciate feedback from our viewers and answer all the queries.

It is good to see your active engagement with our digital platform. We have recently released an app for Android Smart TV. App development for Web OS based Smart TV's is still some time away.

Stay tuned for the updates.

      Hello.. I want to install latest webos system version to my tv .. I think rooting it may help .. is there any guide or steps to follow to do that ? 
      Also I want to be able to rollback to my current version if the install with root failed due to drivers for example.

      Hi
      I have tried downloading Hotstar app on my OLED 3D TV (MODEL NO. OLED55E6T) but the LG content store doesn't display any app. Software is up to date. If Hotstar is not compatable with current WebOS, look forward for an update in the software. Appreciate replies

      Sometimes the Showtime and the Starz apps. will not play videos. The little loading icon just twirls. A couple days later they might work fine.  I have tried signing out, deleting the app, reloading it from the LG Store, then signing back in, but it doesn’t solve the problem. Broadband speed tests are above 110 MB. 
      Because it happens with both apps, it seems it could be some sort of an LG handshake or verification problem.
      Casting Showtime and Starz movies to my LG 43UM6910PUA 4K UHD TV from the corresponding app on my iPhone works fine  but it ties up the phone.
      Has anyone else had this problem and found a solution?
