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.

Hi Azam,

Yes Hotstar are developing an app, but at the moment it is many months behind schedule probably because they needed to update the backend of their infrastructure to update/remove outdated and esoteric software, i.e. Adobe Flash.  Forum user have in the meantime reported that they are now able to view the Hotstar website via the webOS browser without issue, which is something they were unable to do previously.

Have you installed it, and if so is it any good?

Yes. It is not as snappy as the firestick app which I was previously using, but the picture quality is definitely better. Load times a tad higher. Still it does the job.

I have given my feedback to the hotstar tech team and hope the future updates will make it better. They are yet to provide 5.1 sound.They are working on it too.

No settings are not concerned. You should be on the lastest WebOS version. Check for any updates.

If still not, then your model might get it soon. I have a 2018 one.

Can you make sure that you let Hotstar's customer support know your problems, and if you get any feedback let the forum know what it was.

I am not sure which version I got for webos but I am on latest as I have recently updated it. I got LG OLED B8 2018 model and I can see the app in LG store and it is installed as well in my TV.
