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.

      Found multiplex application that use letsencrypt stop working in 30 September 2021 on LG WebOS 3.5. This appear to be wide spread multiplex version of WEBOS.

      Our current app is available on 4K/UHD LG television models running the following system software:
      webOS 3.0 webOS 3.5 webOS 4.0 webOS 5.0 No 720p or 1080p (“full HD”) sets are supported for our current app at this time.
      Note: Due to root certificate limitations with the device OS itself, only webOS 5.0+ devices support secure connections with a personal Plex Media Server. To allow connections to a personal server, devices running earlier webOS versions must be set to Allow Insecure Connections in the TV app settings and the Plex Media Server must be set to Preferred for the Secure Connections preference.

      I am creating a streaming application, where user can access a list of mkv files from my server, Mkv is not supported in web browsers and it is not loading properly within my webOS web app.
      I cannot modify my files to another video format.
      Is there a native player for LG WebOS that I can embed into my web application ?
      Is there any video player with web sdk to play mkv on a smart tv.
      Ps: my videos are working well on chrome, as for Firefox or Safari, it tells me that the format is not supported.

      I have an LG OLED55B7A that has been rebooting randomly ever since I updated it to webOS 6.00.05 about 6 months ago.  I have noted there is a new webOS version 6.00.20 available.   Has anyone here had the same rebooting problem, and if so, did the latest webOS correct the issue?
      In general, my setup has the LG tv doing as little as possible - it is simply a display for my Roku box via my AVR, as the TV's interface and apps slowly became completely unusable about a year after purchase.  So, no ethernet, no WiFi, all services turned off, etc., and this helped with all of the performance issues, except the rebooting. 
      @LG tv if you ever read this - you have done a TERRIBLE job of managing the software on these TVs.  webOS started off as a real alternative to all of the external set top boxes, but now, I will *never* *ever* buy another LG TV again, and I tell everyone I know to avoid them.  Worst product management in the consumer electronics industry in the past 10 years.
      Thanks fellow sufferers for any tips.

      We have two LG OLED TVs. WebOS appears differently on each. And we are able to download the Paramount+ app on one TV, but not on the other.
      OLED65C7P (older) running software version 6.00.25
      WebOS TV Version 3.9.0-62709
      Does not allow the Paramount+ app to be installed
      OLED65C9PUA (newer) running software version 5.10.25
      WebOS TV Version 4.9.3-5340808
      Allows the Paramount+ app to be installed
      How can we get WebOS to appear the same on both TVs?
