Bro, I also had same problem, I was missing hotstar in my big 50" screen, but I got a solution, GOOGLE CHORMECAST, chromecast did it job wonderfully, it works in my non smart tv too, check full details on hotstar app site at hotstar for smart tv guide

It had cost me around 3k inr, it is worth of each penny.  check its features and stop waiting for smart tv version.

Regards,

Nash

when are you guys going to provide support for hotstar?? this is a must have app in India and is very popular, there is no use to buy a smartTV  if there is so much issue in the availability of a video content App.

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.

    • Add Fox+ in the LG Content Store/ webOS

      Can you please make Fox+ available to the LG content store/ webOS. I have a LG 43UJ630V which is a 2017 model and I can't find it on their content store. I subscribed to Fox+ considering I could watch it on a big screen and not only on smart phone. I am very much disappointed that this limits me from watching it on my UHD TV. Subscription is wasted without seeing it on my big screens. We are now in 2019 guys! We are not moving backwards. Let us move forward and make Fox+ available to all subscribers.

    • Question: LG Content Store will not open - Nothing happens

      Hi, My currently installed apps work fine such as Amazon and Netflix, however if I try to select the LG Content Store it doesn't do anything. I want to install more apps but I can't because I cannot access the store. I do not want to use Factory Reset as a possible solution because I have recently had my LG OLED E8 professionally calibrated which was very expensive. Can somebody tell me how I can resolve this issue please?
