I recently purchased an LG OLED48C2AUA. Frankly, I'm not pleased. The biggest problem is searching for programs, particularly across apps. For example, if I'm in Netflix, and search for a program that happens to be in Prime Video, using voice control (Alexa or LG) or the speak button on the remote, I usually get random UTube trailers or other suggestions, or no suggestions at all. It seems I have to know in advance what streaming app it's on, and even that doesn't work all the time. Before purchasing this TV, I used to be able to immediately find the program using the voice control on my Xfinity remote, or the Roku remote (if the program was on a streaming service) and my "unsmart" Sharp TV, with the input set to either cable box or Roku, as appropriate.
I don't want to have to know in advance what app the program is streaming on to find it. I want to be able to simply say "Alexa, show me "Boardwalk Empire", no matter what program or app the TV is currently tuned to. I want the complete list of possibilities to choose from, particularly since some may be free, depending on my subscriptions. Is this possible?
Hi, I've just bought an OLED G2 83. It's all working fine but I cannot get any apps or login to my LG account on it. I can login on my phone and can connect to the TV on that. However, when I try and install any apps, the TV says that I need to sign into my LG account. When I input my details, I get 'The email address that you entered has already been registered with Facebook account. Do you want to login with Facebook Account?' Clicking on OK just takes me back to 'Sign in on TV LG Account Sign In' so I am stuck in the same circle.
I have tried to reset my password through the LG site but, as I am in Portugal, I am getting a message saying that you cannot use social media sites to login in that country.
What should I do?

When will ITVX be available? Why isn't it available already? Is this another item that LG doesn't mention in its documentation (isn't that false advertising)?
Why aren't VPNs (or at least one) available? That's definitely false advertising. How is an ex-pat supposed to use an LG (stupid) TV? Can I have my purchase price back so that I can buy a real smart TV?
Why can't I download any app I want?
Two of the most popular channels in Israel have app's (12+ and Kan11) that are not available in the LG store but available on android and apple. Can LG add them ?

When I try to watch replay or live TV from Belgian casts in the browser I have error messages:
- for Auvio (RTBF) it is purely incompatible
- for RTLPlay , the message says that the browser version is too old and has to be updated.
It is impossible to install alternative browser on LG smart TV, or to update the LG one.
WebOS is not really a good idea, or at least it should be more "open" for the apps that are not proposed or updated.
I know it is possible to share from other machines (tablet, phone or computer) but I want to use my TV "alone" too!
Do you have a solution (other then buying a chromecast or equivalent device?)
please can you confirm if the apps for MEDIASET/LA7/RAI REPLAY are available for OLED55B7V.
I've set my TV to access to Italian LG contents but in Premium apps I can only see TIMvision, infinity, Chili. Rakuten TV and GameFly Streaming.
From the forums available on line I am not able to understand if the apps for MEDIASET/LA7/RAI REPLAY are only available on previous OLED LG models or if there is something wrong with my TV,

I have exactly the same problem. I would expect those apps to be part of premium application menu but they are not. Can anybody help us? Thanks
