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.

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.

      LG Continues to Push the Limits of Future Mobility with Advanced ADAS Technology

      SEOUL, Nov. 25, 2021 — LG Electronics (LG) and Mercedes-Benz AG were named joint winners this week at the annual AutoSens Awards, a global celebration of autonomous driving and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
      Every year the AutoSens conference recognizes companies for innovations in six categories of which LG was nominated in two: 2020 Vision Award and Hardware Development of the Year. The 2020 Vision Award was bestowed to LG and Mercedes-Benz in recognition of their influence, sustainability, contribution to the industry and inspiration to future technologies. The Hardware Development of the Year award was given to LG for successfully commercializing its front multipurpose camera technology beyond the concept stage. LG and Mercedes-Benz have been on ADAS camera technology for the past seven years, seeing the fruits of their labor commercialized in the new sedan which launched last month.
      First started in 2015, the AutoSens Awards celebrates the best innovations and innovators in ADAS and autonomous vehicle technology. Every year, representatives from automakers, suppliers, research labs and academia take part in AutoSens online communities, conferences and training modules, exhibition events and workshops to better understand the fast-growing autonomous vehicle industry, which could not exist without ADAS technology.
      Dr. Park Young-kyung, a Vision AI expert at LG, and Dr. Benjamin Marx of Mercedes-Benz’ multi-purpose camera team accepted the award and delivered a speech where they described the rewarding experience of working together for many years to develop a camera solution that improved real-life safety and met the strict European NCAP safety requirements. The state-of-the-art technology developed by the two companies is capable of taking advantage of deep learning and multi radar sensors to deliver significantly more environmental data to the central processing unit for analysis. More data results in better analysis and greater safety.
      “Demonstration value to our automotive customers is the ultimate reward for LG,” said Dr. Kim Jin-yong, president of the LG Vehicle component Solutions Company. “Being honored together with Mercedes-Benz is very meaningful to LG as we strive to contribute toward innovation in future mobility.”

      Hi
      I've got an LG Smart TV 43UM  7400PLB and am looking to buy an external hard drive so I can pause live TV and record programs. I'm currently using a much smaller capacity USB which can't pause live TV and will soon be full. 
      I've read on various forums that certain hard drives won't work or that I'll need to buy a certain connecting cable. 
      I was thinking of buying a Seagate 2TB drive, (STGX2000400) which is around £55.
      Can anyone recommend one or confirm that the Seagate one will be okay.
      Thanks.

      Sonyliv, jio TV on webos, mx plyer for LG smarttv

      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,
