I just bought a 65 inch 4K TV.  I was hoping it would be loaded with apps, especially HBO GO, TBS, TNT etc etc.  When I go to premium apps there is only Hulu, Netflix and Amazon.  What the heck????

It's just sad when I have a 5 year old Saumsung TV with tons and tons of apps and then I come to a brand new 2017 LG, the apps are crap.  When your at Costco you can't get online and browse the apps t

If you get a LG TV, you pretty much force to get either a Roku, Apple TV or Amazon, Google box for streaming!  No Direct TV Now, not sure about Sling TV.  I have Amazon Prime and I thing LG has an app

Developing apps takes time, money, staff and inter-business cooperation.

LG may not have the staff, be it in numbers or technical expertise, to create all the apps that people want.  There may not be cooperation from content providers which holds up development, refusing to open up APIs or there may be licensing limitations.  Many content providers are still wedded to producing said content with Adobe Flash which LG does not support and has no intention of supporting as it is a dying medium and Adobe constantly alters the playing field.

It does seem that some people do not do their due diligence before purchasing a product to actually see if it fulfils their requirement, but instead complain after the fact.  HBOGO is available for some Samsung devices, so kudos to them.   However I will admit that it is strange that HBOGO is not available on webOS as on LG's previous SmartTV system NetCast it was.

There is a link on the forum for proposing & showing your support for apps directly to LG, plus emailing service providers to let them know that you want an app is always a way to go as well.

      After updating to the latest web browser with new user interface on LG C9, subtitles on all streaming websites disappears every 2-3mins.
      Video continues to play without subs. The subtitles will re-appear if I move the magic remote but disappears again after 3mins.
      Should be a widespread issue as it's also happening on Youtube.com videos with subs. Un-related but Play/Stop button on magic remote also stop working on the new browser.

      I've been waiting for the HBO app to appear on the list for a while now.  I figured it was a licensing issue and would clear once ROKU and Fire were resolved.  When that was done.  Then I Youtube searched and found a video that had the HBO Max app available outside the US 
      link hidden, please login to view.  Any thoughts how to get HBO Max in the US or to communicate directly with WEBOS?  Thanks to all in advance. S

      No HBO GO on laserbeamer. I do have it on the LG nanocell tv both from 2019.
      I have updated the firmware manually, changed locations all without any success to find the app in the lg store.
      Can I download it manually somewhere?

      Hi,
      How do I install HBO GO on a 65UH615a? I looked under premium content and Apps & Games and cannot find it. Although it’s an older model, I keep the software up to date.
      Thanks in advance, Bonnie

      Hello,
      HBO Go has recently made updates to their app but it is not reflected on the TV. The old app, with grey icon (2014) has issues with the stream and I get very often the "buffering screen".  We need an update or switch to the "black" one(2017)  (the colors come from the official replay of HBO).
      When will the update be performed?
      Thank you!
