Hi,

HotStar is very popular application in india which allows you to watch tv shows/movies and lot more.

I don't see its app available on LG Store.

Really infuriating to read this. What even is their reason? 

The Game Of Thrones simulcast is working now. Watched it live today.

@Karan Batra  game of thrones was very laggy/sluggish for me on WebOS. Did it work fine for you? What is your TV model?

Mine is 2018 65UK6360. Game of thrones plays flawlessly with subtitles on even on the simulcast. The Picture quality is a lot better than Firestick which I was using previously. hotstar is a little unoptimised as compared to other streaming platforms and hence requires more bandwidth. What speed do you have and what tv?

I still don't see it in LG content store 

Yeah, I have been using it on my 2018 4K tv since its launch on March 22,2019. The app has some bugs but not a deal breaker. 

Bugs like sometimes it fails to start due to server time mismatch and you have to click on retry once and it starts just fine,  the other is no subtitles in the big bang theory. 

Rest all is good, picture quality is superb , much better than the firestick that I was using earlier. Interface is basically the same.

make sure you are on the latest webOS version. Below 3.5 is not compatible as of now.

EDIT - This has happened the first time yesterday night ,the app has stopped playing anything at all. Server Error. Unable to generate security certificate. 

A lot of people have been facing problems, but i was lucky enough to get away with just an app restart but not today.

Hotstar is the worst.

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.

I cannot find it on my LG Store. I have LG 49UB850T model and currently using the update version 05.05.75. Please help to find the app on LG store.

Sadly I can’t help. It might be they haven’t released it for your model yet. You can write a mail to [email protected] or [email protected] along with these details and they would tell you if they have released the app for your tv. 

If you don’t mind you can factory reset your tv and try , might work, hit or miss.

yes its available.. check the vedio i made .. but somehow the prmium content doesnt work well. too much laggy.. only premium content  

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cw6cvAs3iLM&t=7s

Mine works perfectly. Using it on two tv’s now. No problem playing premium content.  The only mild issue is missing subtitles with the big bang theory. Not much of a concern now.

I haven’t faced video stuttering till date. 

Wish they add dolby 5.1 soon.

I have an LG 43UF690T which is running WebOS 04.05.85. Can someone at LG let me know when I can expect hotstar to be available in the content store?

I don’t think LG would be answering that. According to the WebOS version it should have been available by now but I guess its a combination of model nos & WebOS version. A lot of older models inspite of having the required WebOS version haven’t received it.

Contact hotstar at [email protected] or [email protected] .

@Adit The webos version specified by you is firmware version rather than webos version. According to hotstar, only tvs with webos 3.5 and above will receive the update. The tv model specified by you has webos version 2.0 when checked in specifications. So contact hotstar whether they are making the app compatible with version 3.5 below tvs

How do I check the webos version on the TV? I'm only able to see the firmware version in the 'About'option.

I read that on Google "Hotstar is now available on webOs on LG tv. Go toLG content store and search for hotstar. Download the app and then you can use it from recent app drawer.Dec 16, 2018" why you peeps facing prob? you peeps can go for other sources to watch hotstar like hulu and kodi like i do, and if i face probs using kodi or hulu i use purevpn to get through such problems. 

You can read out reviews on best hulu and kodi vpns available out there at
