I don't stream that much either ... except for the news of my birth country.

Alas ... my [expensive] LG TV does not support  the Adobe Flash player and LG would not allow

to downloads it. This is my third LG TV; both earlier ones were OK as far as the flash player is concerned.

I feel sorry I upgraded and would like to know why LG does not facilitate.

Sadly Adobe Flash is an ever changing piece of software and LG probably (somewhat understandably) do not want to spare the time and considerable expense of trying to constantly back-port fixes to earlier versions of their products.  Streaming can easily be supported by friendlier non plug-in methods such as HTML 5, you just have to hope that the streaming provider finally recognises how bad Adobe Flash is and moves to something better or produces a dedicated app for webOS.  As a consumer this is where you come in, go nag the provider.

My point was more that instead of blaming LG for an outdated buggy insecure third party application that the manufacturer dropped support (for several years) for Unix based systems, of which webOS is one, and streaming  providers  provided dedicated applications for webOS and websites providers used better available alternatives the easier life will be for everyone.  

These guys have apparently produced an independent third party version of Flash , so you could try it:

.  It purports to work on LG & Samsung (because they have the same issue with Flash as well).  Let us know how you get on.

Basically Flash is terrible, do everything you can to avoid using it.

      My AV input option keeps popping up on my screen. I’ve tried removing it from the Start Up menu but it hasn’t resolved the problem. It’s only been doing it for about 2/3 weeks. My LG tv is only about 2/3 years old.

      New Upgrade Offers a Customizable Interface for TV Brand Partners,
      More Content and Convenience for Users

      SEOUL, Oct. 6, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) has expanded its smart TV platform business with the recent rolling out of its webOS Hub, an upgraded version of its webOS solution for third-party partners. Delivering more customization options to smart TV makers and more convenience and content to end-users, webOS Hub will be available to an expanded network of 200 partner brands including Seiki, Eko, Stream System, Konka, Aiwa and Hyundai – a ten-fold increase from when LG commenced licensing its webOS ecosystem in early 2021.
      More than just a smart platform, webOS Hub comes with support from LG’s technology partners, such as Dolby, Realtek, Gracenote and CEVA, and has been certified by more than 160 broadcasters from around the globe. The new upgrade further demonstrates the company’s commitment to extending the ultimate user experience to more consumers worldwide.
      webOS Hub makes it possible for brands to customize the user interface (UI) in a variety of ways, such as fine-tuning the Home screen by selecting the color scheme, applying a visual style consistent with their identity or inserting a logo for visibility. By providing the capability to tailor webOS Hub, LG is enabling smart TV manufacturers to differentiate their offerings while delivering a more expansive and enjoyable user experience.
      With enhanced usability and personalization features, webOS Hub provides users with a curated selection of content to check out based on their tastes and preferences. A real time-saver, Next Pick1 recommends up to three live programs, from broadcast stations or a connected set-top box, as well as one VOD title or app. Additionally, the new update supports LG’s Magic Explorer, which displays information relevant to the content being played, such as actor bios and filming locations.
      webOS Hub also provides an improved viewing experience with Clear Voice PRO, a feature that makes onscreen dialogue much easier to hear. As with its predecessor, webOS Hub carries major content streaming services such as Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video and LG’s free, premium content service, LG Channels. Joining these are new streaming services such as Fubo TV, with popular cloud gaming service like NVIDIA GeForce NOW to be added as well.
      Along with access to a diverse range of high-quality content, LG’s comprehensive solution for smart TVs presents an array of cutting-edge features, such as advanced picture processing, variable refresh rate (VRR) support2 and the Game Optimizer, which offers finetuned picture and audio settings for different game genres. The first webOS Hub-powered OLED TVs from LG’s partner TV brands will be launching soon, providing more users with the outstanding features and value already familiar to LG customers worldwide.
      “We are committed to refining and expanding our webOS Hub ecosystem, which continues to introduce more and more consumers to the unparalleled user experience of LG webOS,” said Park Hyoung-sei, president of the LG Home Entertainment Company.
      Over 120 million third-party devices in 150 countries are now powered by webOS – a number that is set to grow with the availability of the new and improved webOS Hub.

      When I try to go to a TV programme via the remote control voice option, the TV tries to look up the channel on the app I'm on, instead of going straight to the TV channel on the antenna. This used to work without any problems up until a couple of days ago. Any help appreciated.

      We just purchased a new LG WebOS TV OLED 65" and running the setup through the app or the TV remote says it can't load the user agreement. This is blocking us from getting to streaming apps like Nexflix or any smart functions like Voice assistant.
      TV worked fine for a few days but voice assistant stopped working and after much effort LG tech said to  Reset to Initial Settings. Now we have mentioned no smart functions. TV is on ethernet and its browser functions on web fine. Tried running off neighbor's wifi with same results.
      Tried switching to different country, unplugging/hold power button for 20 seconds/wait one minute,  resetting TV multiple times, setting up remote again, ...
      Error message: Unable to Load User Agreements  A server error has occurred while downloading  the User Agreements. You must download and agree to the terms of the User Agreements to use this feature or application. Do you want to try to download them again… Unable to Load User Agreements  Sorry, but the User Agreements  can't be downloaded at this time…Please check your internet connection and try again later.    No change when trying over five days.
      Now there is no local company available to service TV. Maybe it's time to send it back and give LG TV a one star rating. I am willing to change motherboards but doubt if LG would go along with that.
      Anyone have any ideas.
