Question

Hi, LG content store administrators!

When will you give us Jio TV on WebOS. You have been left back by almost 2 years by other TV OS. At least compete with others in the present market. In the name of WebOS you are charging your customers heavily but you are not giving them even the minimum. Other TV manufactures e.g. MI, VU, Samsung, etc, are giving the world to their customers for a price as low as 60% of what you are charging. Still you have useless apps in your store which have no meaning at all for a TV and have left the stuffs that are inevitable in market.

Hi Mr. Hofmeister,

If you are from LG, I can bet to say nobody in this world would be so rude to their customers as you are. And if you are just a customer like me then I must say you do not have authority to reply by entering into someone else's shoes. I hope rest you can understand better and even more than what I have written. Thanks.

No I am not an LG employee and no one on this forum claims to be as this forum is a user to user site.  Sorry if my question and statement sounded rude, but both I feel were valid.

First of all let me clatify WebOs is not an open source Operating System or something popular like Linux, Android or Windows, Mac etc. where developers will come and design an application and get rewards in lieu of installation or advertisements. WebOS is a patronised and fully owned by LG. Even developers like you and me don't know what will they get if they design an application for the same. So, its so easy to understand and is a general principle that nobody will do anything for charity unless there is an underlying benefit. So if LG doesn't approach Jio for development of an application for its OS and reaches to an agreement for a mutual benefit with Jio, Jio will have no point in showing interest for the same because. It's not a smaller brandname than that of LG. Simultaneously if LG designs an application for Jio TV and Jio doesn't share an interface for the same it will be of no use. Its not something like I will ask Jio why they have not designed application for WebOS. They will ask me the same what I asked you "What is your authority to ask us such questions?"

So, you have to understand that it's only Jio and LG who are to decide when and how they have to launch such application. My question was for the same.

Hello Prabhakar,

If you can develop few applications for WebOS then please go ahead and help the community.  😊 LG announced this year early that it has provided an open source version for the WebOS for the developers to build and be creative with the ToolKit.

Hi Asad,

My question is very simple. Why will I waste my time? I went through the the link given by you and din't find any developers' welfare program. Means developer will waste a lot of time understanding the core functionalities of their owned SDK, develop application, submit to the LG and get a thumbs up, that's all? I am not that much insane. And this is probably the reason we find garbage in the LG content store except a few usable ones.

Hi PK,

To cover a couple of your posts, there are two version of webOS one closed and one open source, very similar to Android which is not entirely open and completely different to iOS which is completely closed, but all are 'nix based.  It is not necessary to run either version of webOS itself to develop apps for the platform, that is what the SDK is for.  The open source version of webOS is aimed more at developers who want to create additions and improvements to the platform, say add codec support for a particular video format, not those who want to create apps for it.  Anyone developing for a Smart TV platform, not just webOS, would need to learn how that platform's SDK works.  The submission process is going to be similar for all Smart TV platforms, and LG provide a payments gateway allowing developers can monetize their products.

If someone was looking to develop for webOS then here is where they would start:

There is even a quick tutorial on how to create a test app:

I see no reason why you cannot approach Jio to inquire as to whether they will develop support for the webOS platform.  Reliance Joi  are a commercial entity, there are LG Smart TV owners using a  platform they do not currently support.  Most companies would, I imagine, welcome feedback from customers to help identify market segments they are not currently supporting, pointing them at an untapped revenue stream.  Jio have an official Twitter customer support feed:

or there is a email contact page on their website:

Development for webOS is theoretically one of the easiest to work with as is uses fairly standard web programming languages such as HTML, JavaScript and CSS.  So if someone can write a fairly sophisticated web page then app development for webOS should not be outside of their capabilities.

Hello P K Prabhakar sir 

i was wondering if you are a developer and can make jiotv run on this lg webos then it is highly possible that users of lg webos will pay u directly for it if the companies are not willing to put the app on webos.. because not everyone will switch to other tv or buy android boxes or firesticks just to make an app run ..  they will pay you for making it run on their tvs and will be more than happy for the same

      New Delhi: Elista, the electronic appliance company headquartered in Dubai has just launched new smart TVs in India. These new televisions are a refresh of their existing lineup in India. So, let’s take a look at their specs and features.  
      Pricing and Availability 
      The 43-ich Elista Smart LED TV has a price tag of Rs. 48,990 ($628). The bigger 50-inch and 55-inch options cost Rs. 59,990 ($769) and Rs. 70,990 ($910) respectively. These TVs are available on all leading consumer electronics shops and online platforms.  
      Elista Smart LED TV specs & features 
      The new range of Elista Smart LED TVs comes in three screen sizes: 43-inch, 50-inch, and 55-inch. They offer a 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels along with 1.07 billion colors. The TVs provide smooth visuals even when watching fast-paced scenes thanks to MEMC technology (Motion Estimation, Motion Compensation) and 60Hz refresh rate.  
      The Smart TVs also come with ALLM (Automatic Low Latency Mode) which reduces the response time of the display to just 5ms, making it ideal for console gaming. The smart TV operates on LG’s WebOS which comes with the ThinQ AI. The ThinQ AI is LG’s voice assistant that makes it simple for viewers to control the TV with either voice or via a mobile device. If the ThinQ UI is not your cup of tea, you also get access to the built-in Alexa to help navigate through the UI or through your favorite OTT apps.  
      The smart TVs come with easy-to-use Magic remote with a dedicated hotkey for Netflix and Prime Video. For connectivity, these TVs have in-built dual-band Wi-Fi. Last but not the least, the speakers of the smart TVs come powered by Dolby Audio.

      LG Electronics is set to launch a new Wee Web OS 2 according to documents leaked by LG insiders, it comes with a new gaming control dashboard that allows users to fully control games downloaded from Google’s Stadia and Nvidia’s gaming download service as well as a new chipset for third pary users.
      The leak comes as the battle over smart TV operating systems intensifies, with brands such as Samsung, LG and Sony now raking in millions from a click of the ticket from consumers signing up to third party apps embedded on their TV’s.
      The leaked LG Electronic document has given an insight into a new Wee Web OS 2 for OLED TV’s along with new gaming capabilities.
      During the past decade over 100M Web OS TV’s have been sold with LG’s Smart TV base surpassing 160M in 2021 with up to 25M devices added yearly.
      Connected TV Platform research shows that there is now 1.28 billion connected devices.
      Samsung and their Tizen OS is on top with 12.7% share, LG and their Web OS is second with 7.3% share while Sony coming in third with 6.4% share.
      Last year LG Electronics gave away their WebOS software to third party TV manufactures a move that allows the3m to collect more revenue from app sales available via their OS which undergoing a makeover so that more third-party apps can be integrated into their Web OS software.
      ChannelNews has been told that several third-party TV manufacturers are set to move to the Samsung Tizen OS, after Samsung followed LG’s move with the offer of free smart TV software for third party manufacturers.
      In the battle to get third-party brands to use their OS, LG is providing an SW turnkey solution to board manufacturers including the ability moving forward for brands to put their own logo on the top of the OS.



      hey are also providing a video for manufacturers to use instore video to promote their TV brand running the LG WebOS software.
      LG’s claims that they have 160 International broadcasters on board as well as close relationships with Microsoft, Dolby, and several other leading brands.
      As part of their new offering LG is set to roll out a new ‘Full Home UX’ Magic Remote.
      The new remote when activated immediately delivers a brand-new home screen with “enhanced usability” the document claims.



      New listings include, Membership and Search, Recent Inputs, Home Dashboard, Frequently Viewed Channels, Web Browser, and CP Content previews.
      Listed as coming is new gaming including Google Stadia and Geforce Now from Nvidia, Apple TV, Paramount +, as well as Fubo TV.
      It also appears that Wee 2.0 is set to be powered by a new processor from Realtek.
      The advantage of the new chipset is that sharpness and contrast are better optimised and memory use is reduced without compromising picture quality.
      The new chipset also delivers ‘Super Resolution Upscaling” but only on OLED TV’s.
      Also built in is Alexa voice control  but not for the Australian market.
