When will we get the SONYLIV app on WebOS ? 

Even the WebOS browser doesn't support playing SONYLIV content due to lack of Flash support. 

Strangely Chromecast also has issues. 

Hi Vikram,

webOS will get the SONYLIV when Sony produces it, as with iOS and Android app development is not down to the platform provider.

To the best of my knowledge no mobile platform (this includes Smart TVs) supports Flash due to the fact Adobe dropped  support and development back in 2011 for such devices, this includes your Chromecast.

I have one LG 43uk6780pte 4k TV. I hope you know that people in India use 4 apps (hotstar, sonyliv, voot, zee5) extensively along with Amazon prime and Netflix. Now, webos platform is having many apps, but it is missing two of the most popular apps i.e. sonyliv and voot. Hence, I am eagerly waiting for these apps.

So, I want to know whether there is any chance that we will be getting these apps in near future.

Sony has already produced the app and SDK is available, LG Webos team should build the app now bases that.

I am not sure why you would need an SDK from Sony to build an app for the webOS platform.  SDKs are usually produced by the platform manufacturer (in this case LG) so that people can build applications for said platform.

Than please go ahead and build one.

Android OS is killing your market in India because the apps available for them are pretty more than what is for webos today.

Hi Ankit,

Yes I would, but I'm not a programmer and I do not work for either Sony or LG.  You may have missed that this is a user-to-user forum so not many people here have a vested interest in actually producing apps.  Producing apps for a platform is easier done by the content providers themselves, in this case Sony, as they will have the knowledge of how their own backend services are set up to allow an external app to access them.  Really you need to complain to Sony Liv about the lack of an app.

Hi George,

Thanks for highlighting, i have written to SONY as well for same. Hope they take this seriously and action.

i would urge others too to drop them a mail regarding this request

Dear sony Team,

 
This is a request to develop an application for LG Webos Smart TV. 
Many users who have subscribed for sony liv would be benefitted with this and you should also be in forefront with other smart TV app providers like Hotstar and Zee5.
 
Please do think of building one and i am sure you will increase you subscription base with this.
 
Regards
Ankit

Thanks for a very quick response. 

I need to buy two more TVs for my other rooms. Clearly I will buy Android TVs instead and LG will loose out on biz. 

I don't think that is compelling enough to add deprecated technology onto the WebOS platform (including the security issues of Flash) 😀

Not sure why LG TV people can buy if their operating systems are not compatible to create new apps immediately as per the customer's need.! 

This is as good as Windows Phone Vs Android apps.

These LG guys don't understand that because of these software apps their televisions are getting sell out.

They want to make bother windows phone type of model in television industry and soon they will wiped out of they don't understand the customer's basic need.

      Merhaba arkadaşlar,
      55LB670V-ZA smart Tv mevcut, Tv açılışta LG logosu bekleme bekleme süresi uzadı. Bazen takılı da kalıyor, TV'yi kapatıp açınca düzeliyor. Bazı formlarda Yazılım güncellemesi yapılması gerekli olduğu belirtilmiş, LG nin kendi işletim ve TV de olan son yazılımı 05.05.70 mevcut webOS 1.4.0-2532 (afro-ashley) mevcut. Yeni firmware ve webOS sürüm nereden bulabilir ve yükleyebilirim. Yardımcı olursanız çok sevinirim.
      Teşekkürler
      Türkiye / İstanbul

      Hello friends,
      55LB670V-ZA smart TV is available, the waiting time on the LG logo screen at the TV startup has been extended. Sometimes it gets stuck, it gets better when the TV is turned off and on. In some forms, it has been stated that it is necessary to update the software, LG's own page and the latest software 05.05.70 available on the TV is webOS 1.4.0-2532 (afro-ashley). Where can I find and install the new firmware and webOS version. I would be glad if you help.
      Thank you
      Turkey, Istanbul

      LG's webOS 6.0 smart TVs have a new UI, NFC-equipped remote
      The new smart TV software from LG also has more voice commands for use with Alexa or Google Assistant

      Seven years after introducing webOS as the platform for its Smart TV lineup, LG is introducing version 6.0 with a new look and feel for its 2021 4K and 8K TVs. The old blade lineup of apps is gone, with a more modern tile-based layout. LG Home Entertainment president Park Hyoung-sei calls this “the most significant update since we first introduced webOS in 2014.”

      An upgraded version of its ThinQ AI has more voice command control than ever whether you’re using Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. For traditional control, this year’s edition of its Magic Remote is a bit more standard than some of the previous versions, but also includes NFC for the first time, which allows users to share content from phone to TV (and back) simply by tapping it.
      The new software includes Magic Explorer, which can pull up related content about actors, locations and items of interest for “select broadcast channels, while Next Picks analyzes viewing preferences to suggest things you might like. There’s no word on opt-in or opt-out preferences for these settings, but we’ll ask about them as the show progresses next week. It’s also unclear whether the updates will extend to older TVs in LG’s lineup, one way or another, the old HP software platform is still rolling on, powering new OLEDs and LCDs for another year.

      Every time I use the scrollwheel on the amazing LG remote for the 55" OLED55B7V TV nothing happens, until I realize I am scrolling in the wrong direction.
      For everyone not accustomed with PCs, ie the whole mobile generation and all of us on the Apple platform, the so called "natural" scrolling aka "inverted scrolling" is what feels right. If I want the content on my screen to go up to reveal more content, I scroll the wheel up. On PCs and WebOS, you scroll the viewport, not the content, so you have to scroll down to make the content move up.
      If it would be up to me, the default should be natural scrolling, but at least give me an option to change the scrolling behaviour! For me, the current behaviour is just jarring each and every time I want to scroll!
      Moving a viewport is the old paradigm. Moving the content, as you do every day on your phones and tablets and PCs with touch screens, is how we interact now.

      Two of the apps I.e Sony Liv and MX PLAYER ARE not available. You cannot even play Sony Liv through AirPlay as the sonyliv app will not support screen sharing on lg tv . So unfortunate experience.

      Hi there,. 
      It is now clear that any  OS, except android and apple,  suffers from low number of apps. 
      It is a shame to struggle with a 'named smart tv' to run a Web site or find a commonly used app! 
       
      Ok! We are stuck with this rubbish OS (bad OS due to the poor App stoee) , why LG doesn't develop an adapter to run android TV apps on the TV? Maybe after testing them, you can allow certain famous apps. Moreover, why don't they provide an easy porting tool for the developer?
      Anyway, if they don't do this, I would advise any one to buy an android TV and ignore the useless OSs such as Tiazen or Webos. 
      Regards,
