No, I still don’t have the app on my lg store. 

Perhaps you should contact the Hotstar or LG customer support. You should be able to view the application by now. Are you operating the TV in India or the US? It seems like people in the non-Indian territories are having the issue with the Hotstar app.

Hi, what's the maximum display resolution on the Hotstar app for your TV? 

Hotstar provides 1080p max, but there is no way to see it in the app. As i have a 4k tv so it upscales to 4K but its just upscaled.

natively its 1080p but the picture quality is better than when watching with firetv stick.

watched Game of thrones.

Afaik 1080p is the max resolution hotstar is providing. Its upto the respective TV upscale mechanism to provide enhanced quality. Wish they add 4k hdr and Dolby vision contents soon

I agree. It's odd that Hotstar doesn't have 4K content given that it's a streaming giant. Thank you so much for the reply. I really appreciate it.

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.

Should come, mught be a little later. I assume you have Netflix and prime video, then there is no reason for hostar not to work. They are rolling out in batches and since yours is an older model you might have to wait a bit.

Thanks again! This clarifies a lot of things. The recent LG models are ostensibly the first to get the Hotstar update.

Please read all the messages. The app has already been launched on March 22,2019. Its being rolled out in batches and your tv should get it soon.

Make sure you are on the latest webOS version. Check for any updates.

What tv model do you have and which year?

I got the same mail and have asked them to refund my subscription or make it work by any means. They’ll probably reply in the morning.

But can't you update your version of the WebOS or maybe request for it if it's not manually possible?

I contacted LG team regarding web os update, they said only firmware updates will be given, No webos upgrades

It’s incorrect, they have not even opened it for USA on webos 4.10

I think as of now they are rolling out for India.
