No Updates - Why should I recommend or buy a TV from LG?

Recommended Posts



The update for my TV took many, many, many months to upgrade OTA, what the criteria for it happening is beyond my range of knowledge.  If you really want the upgrade all I can suggest that is do download it and install it yourself.

@randysehn Great !dea... Thank you!  I will go for Nvidia Shield android box.. It is good for gaming as well.. This LG WebOS has nothing in it, but the price is too high.

Next time I will buy a 4K TV without any smart features and smart OS .. and connect my Android box with it to make it as a Smartest TV.

You will have a hard time finding any TV without some smart functions but that should not be a problem. Just buy the TV with the best screen for the best price and don't use any of the smart functions.

You can even do that now 🙂

While I can understand frustration for lack of updates, keep in mind that there are a lot of TV models each with separate capabilities and specifications. Some may lend themselves to being upgradable while others may be unable.

It does cost money to support TVs and electronics. At some point there is an End Of Life (support) that companies have to consider.

A similar comparison could be made to Android or iOS devices which are no longer able to be upgraded to a new OS version. While it may be possible in some ways to move around some of these limitations, there is a risk.

Any other tv has android on it. Just LG went with webos. And will not fix it to do what android has done for ever. 

@randysehn Yes. But WebOS's Upscaling feature is awesome... No android TV's can beat that.

@ebresie Yeah .. understandable .. Its like an iPhone.. You can't simply install any other custom OS in it as we do for Android Devices. Because, unlike Android devices, Apple Products and LG products which uses WebOS are designed not to support any other custom OS. Though WebOS is beased on Linux.
