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:

https://www.lg.com/us/support-product/lg-49UF6400

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.

    • Disney Plus on LG webOS TVs

      I was reading a few articles on the launch of Disney Plus but they did not list any of the tvs such as LG webos or samsung tv. I hope disney plus comes out in lg tvs.  Its supposed to launch November 12th in the US for $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. They also said there will be a $12.99-per-month trio bundle of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ that is coming. I'm already doing espn for $4.99, I may do the entire bundle to get hulu also, not sure, At the minimum, I am definitely going to get Disney plus

    • Question: gigabit ethernet on smart TV

      Hello, Is there any way of installing an usb gigabit network adapter on a webos smart TV?  The builtin wired adapter is only 100mbps (on a 2000$+ TV, shame  on you LG!!!)  while the wifi (N) is very poor, with the router at 1m from TV it only gets half the bandwidth of the wired network. Anyway the wired network  maxes out near 100mbps but I need more bandwidth as I have 4k video content with bitrates grater than 100mbps which I cannot stream without stuttering to TV through XPLAY/PLEX.

    • Apple TV 4K Issues with LG UJ7700 WebOS 3.5

      I'm not sure if this is an LG or Apple issue, or if I have to try a different HDMI cable (the package says it's the latest standard) but here's what I've seen so far: I have the AppleTV 4k using Dolby Vision which looks great. 1. When using the AppleTV remote to turn on the AppleTV and LG TV (using LG Simplink), sometimes the video signal is messed up – it's blurry and out of sync. Changing the input to Live TV and then back to the AppleTV fixes it. Sometimes it just works right away.
