I agree both amazon and netflix buttons should allow for customization .

I have no intention of using  either service .  a you tube and browser launch buttons would be much better. 

I'm a very disappointed with webos  TBH. 

I have an android box with google tv and it is much  better, maybe I was spoilt  by  having it before I purchased  my smart tv.....

i disagree here a bit.

At least on my TV it is very fast and easy to use, Android boxes , at least the ones i tried are very slow.

Were i agree with you is currently the features are a bit limited.

The button customization is very high on my wishlist, as is beeing able to launch a webpage in fullscreen from the menu.

Also some apps are missing, but luckily for me, my main apps such as Plex and SIPTV are working fine.

I also agree that being able to customize this buttons would be nice.

It's pity that on a remote so useful this buttons are wasted, of course for people that have the services the option would still be there. 

Even if I would register to a streaming service, I would not pay for all 3 providers.

So +3 from me.

Look at who the two buttons are assigned to.  I’m sure they’re paying a whole bunch of money for those dedicated (ads) buttons.

I doubt they’re ever going away or will ever be customizable.

At least it’d be nice to have a single extra customizable button for another app in a convenient location.

Until then it’s long press 9...

      My magic remote and my Roku remote stopped working for turning off power so I performed a factory reset after troubleshooting to get the remote working.  I am now stuck at the 1st screen of the Factory Reset which says "Press the OK Button(wheel) on your remote."  Well... this really stinks because the remote doesn't work!!!  I have tried a USB mouse, a new magic remote, other LG Remotes with no luck.  I have also tried using the button on the bottom of the tv.  And, I contacted support which was just an exercise in redoing everything I had already tried... No Luck!!
      This is a Nano Cell 55NANO81ANA which is basically just a big brick now since I cannot even use any of the inputs.  Does anyone have a trick for getting past this initial screen???
      Thanks for the help.

      I've bought OLED55CX3LA and have screenshare errors ever since. 
      I'm using Dell machine with Windows 10 onboard.
      Almost every time I try to connect using "connect with remote screen" windows option, I get the pop up that
      only with cancel button.

      Sometimes there is approval button but mostly I have only "cancel" option. 
      Have this error on OLED55CX3LA and one older model. Same behavior. 

      Mobile screen sharing working perfectly fine.

      How to fix it?
      I've cleared the connection history but without any success.
      Not sure if I should put it on warranty or if there is some simple fix?

      My problem is that my Netflix app on my LG tv (OLED65B13LA) keeps selecting the leftmost button, it's impossible to scroll the cursor to the right to select another button. I tried resetting the tv to factory defaults - after installing Netflix again the issue is exactly the same.
      I also tried disconnecting the tv from power for a few minutes. Plus I contacted Netflix, but they said I need to contact TV manufacturer before they log a possible bug in the app :/.
      My Amazon Prime app works perfectly fine on the same tv.
      Any thoughts?

      If I go to General -> Programmes -> Programme Manager -> Edit All Programmes, I only get the options to Lock/Unlock and Skip/Restore
      So I cannot Move or Edit Program Numbers or Delete
      Any help and comments would be appreciated
