Hello,

I have LG webOS TV OLED55C6P software version 04.30.15

After working perfectly for the previous eight months,

As of this past Monday,

Twitch streams will no longer load on the webOS browser.

(no problem streaming them on any other device in my home)

I have tried resetting the TV to original settings and rebooting modem/router to no avail.

Please help.

This is how I got it to work.

Find the PLEX app on the TV and install it.

This requires signing up for a PLEX account via a PC or other device once it is installed.

You will download a PLEX media server to this PC or other device.

The app on the TV will connect to the PLEX media server on the other device.

Once the PLEX media server is downloaded to the PC or other device-

select channels and find the twitch channel and add it to your PLEX media server.

Goto PLEX on the TV and click on the Twitch channel and voila twitch tv is back.

Unfortunately the Twitch channel within the Plex app has few options when it comes to specifying what I want to watch on Twitch. Do you know of any way to select a specific streamer this way? Otherwise, the only options it has is browsing by game or featured stream. Even if I did find the streamer I wanted to watch this way, there's no way to favorite or bookmark them. Am I missing something?

Nope, it's a terrible interface.

Smashcast is not working anymore either.

I was hoping it would be fixed by now in the WebOS browser to no avail.

I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the ads that load initially on the streaming services but twitch doesn't seem to care and neither does LG and it stinks.
