The Hotstar App not available on LG 49uf6400  webos- USA,  but the application available on India smart LG tv.  Is there way to down load the Hotstart app on my TV  (LG 49uf6400)?

Hotstar have written their app to only run on TVs running webOS 3.5 and above, sadly your set appears to have version 2.

@George Hofmeister I have LG49SK8000PUA and still don't see the app available. The WebOS version i believe is 4.0.  Is there any other constraint you're aware of

Hi Khaja,

The LG product page lists your set as being supplied with webOS 2.0:

While some TVs with 2.0 have received upgrades to 3.x I have not heard of any being upgraded to 4.x.  Are you getting the number from the firmware version?  If so a firmware of version 4.x.x does not equate to webOS 4.x.

I got the version from the TV menu (attached). Not sure if its referring to firmware again.

Hi Khaja,

Yes that is indeed running webOS 4.x, however the model is different to that you stated in your original post, I see that I replied to the wrong person/post, so my apologies.

As for why it is not available to you at the moment will depend on your location and whether the software has passed for your particular model.  If you are so inclined contact Hotstar directly to see what the state of play is, they have been pretty good at getting back to other forum users.

      Airtel XStream in India is a premium tv streaming app like hotstar, SonyLiv and Zee5. Airtel XStream covers more channels than it would be a primary choice for many users as the price are competitive. 
      Airtel is one of the top3 cellular network provider and most of the people in India use their service. Airtel provides combo packages for tv and cellular services which would be first choice for many users like me.
      This app is already available on ios and android tv.

      When I am trying to play premium content on hotstar, it is showing me the playback error. Please resolve this. In other devices it is working perfectly. I have raised this to hotstar they asked me to raise it to TV manufacturer. Attach is the screenshot of the issue.

      Just bought an LGLED-65UJ630 65INCH TV. Right away I started to get the message "This app will now restart to free up more memory". After searching the internet and forums, I now understand that this problem is huge, it has been going on for years now and it is right across many models of LG TV's.
      I have tried everything to fix this problem. It has the latest firmware. I did the factory reset and that lasted 4 hours before I got the message back. I turn off the TV and leave it for 10 minutes, maybe one hour later I get the message. I delete browsing history, maybe 10 minutes and I get the message..... you get the message.
      As I understand it, the problem is that LG TV's don't have enough internal memory, but they have shipped a ton of their "smart" TV's with this problem.
      My question is, has anybody heard anything from anybody, anywhere about a solution to this problem. I really want to keep this TV, but it is not fit for purpose in this state.
