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.

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.

      I've just purchased a great looking new 50Nano796. It comes with a number of preinstalled apps such as iPlayer and YouTube. I am in the UK and would like to add the local catchup services which previously I had used on a roku 3. The TV is running WebOS 5.1.0-3203 (not 3.5)  I noticed some discussions and YouTube postings which show these apps, but they do not appear in the LG store. Have they been withdrawn? Or am I screwing up somewhere?

      Hotstar i am not getting it in version 05.30.95 and it is not updating also please fix this problem and also the screen share is not working it is showing restart yohr tv everytime

      Model: 50un7300aud
      Webos: 5.1.0-3203 jhericurl-japoon 
      Connected via 5ghz wifi 5 feet away 300mbps
      All of a sudden, none of my apps load. Disney+, YouTube, etc. I click them and nothing happens. Everything was working fine 2 days ago... 
      Steps taken: factory reset, rebooted modem, Power cycled the TV (unplug for 2 minutes). The power cycle helped and I could start the apps after, ONE time and then after exiting Disney plus and trying to go back in, it won't launch. 
      I try to reinstall the apps but they lock up at "installing" not to mention lock up 80% of the time when trying to uninstall. 
       
      Help!

      LG TV feature requests
      1-disable floating pointer 
      2- name hard drives
      3-be able to delete empty folders, not just video files
      4-make pixel refresh automatically on cumulative hours
      5-pixel refresh page confusing needs redescribing.
      6-allow more padding time for recordings, up to 1 hr user defined
      7-allow custom recordings to be given a name to help remember what they are
      8-allow saving of TV settings to a file on a usb pen or HDD.....several named files would be good, then family could chose their favourite settings and load the file from a usb pen / hard drive. Plus could have settings that are in test, in case doesn’t work out
      9+a text file to describe firmware update content is
      10- would like a feature request section on LG website for ideas and allow voting, you would then have an easy access to ideas & their popularity 
      11-Allow setting of recordings manual or through E.P.G. To have ALL options available I.e. Pad time recurring recoding etc. Without having to exit and go back to Edit mode to change the other settings.

      Hello
       
      since upgrading my LGOLED55C9PLA firmware to 05.00.03 
      every time I open a TV channel, I get the HOME menu bar at the bottom of the screen, not sure if a bug, or a bad idea, it has no disable option, feel I would like to roll back to the previous firmware, is this safe ? Is there an easy procedure ? Where do I get the previous firmware file from ?
       
      thanks
