Hotstar app Premium Content rendering issue

Question

So I own a 56 inch LG ultra hdtv and the app store offers a Hotstar app. Now the app works fine for live shows and games, and also for non-premium content but it doesn't for Premium content. I am having a very specific issue- the video rendering problem. For the Premium content that included top-notch tv shows and movies, the app doesn't load the video- the video stops and plays and stops and plays. One might think that the internet connection might be slow, but that's not the case as we have 300mbps fast internet connection and all the HD content on Netflix and Amazon Prime works just fine. I contacted Hotstar regarding the same and they said they are working on it but LG is not responsive enough to resolve the matter fast. I have failed to get this thru with LG customer support, and now looking over here to see if any one else is having the same problem and they found a solution around. Also Hotstar claims that they issued an update for the app in May 2019, but the app on my tv is the one released on Mar 22, 2019 and there is still no update available. Please help!!

If you look elsewhere on the forum you will find others having the same issue.  You will need to get in contact with Hotstar directly as they developed the app, LG merely distributes it.  As I do not have access to Hotstar or knowledge of the app I do not know if it is a Hosted (Server Hosted)  or packaged web apps.  If it is Hosted (Server Hosted) then updates should come relatively quickly, packaged web app take longer as they have to go though the system of quality control and re-distribution via LG.

      When i get LG webOS TV , am i gonna have the access to watch free LIVE channels such as beIN SPORTS or CBC NEWS  and others

      I have recently purchased a LG 55NANO86 TV.  Great TV which I am still getting used to!  I have a question about compatibility of the LG built in web browser functionality with the iFollow football streaming service, used in the UK (and elsewhere).  This is a paid for service which allows streamling of live football games.  I have tried several times unsucessfully to use the built in LG browser on the TV to access and watch a game.  Whilst it successfully shows the iFollow website and allows purchase of the stream, unfortunately the link to the live stream which should pop up a window with the stream, fails to load properly and leaves either a blank screen or a screen with the stop icon displayed.  Does anyone know if this is a known incompatibility issue or am I doing something wrong?  I have used the same iFollow website to view historical match highlights and this works without problem.
      [Fortunately I can stream the iFollow stream to my iPad and then use an AV adaptor to mirror it to the TV so I can still get the match to the TV, but I would prefer to do his without the hassle of connecting the iPad.]
      Any suggestions/advice welcome.

      Hallo, I bought a 55un74006LB smart tv in Italy. It seems not to have usb recording capabilities, according to the information on the italian website, but the UK site declare it has. I think it's the same product with the same functions, so how can I turn the live tv and usb recording on? I think I found the options in the service menu but I cannot change the values. Any suggestion?

      Having eARC engaged in the TV settings and sending Atmos etc to an eARC enabled Samsung sound bar causes the sound bar to power down after appx 18 minutes and diverts the audio to the TV's inbuilt sound system. Disengaging  eARC on the TV resolves the problem and still sends Atmos via ARC. This has only occurred since the most recent software upgrade. Anyone else experiencing this?

      Hi,
      Prime and hotstar are becoming widely used in India past one year.Its so sad to see 49LH576T doesn't have these apps in content store.
      Please can some one from the technology team of LG answer this question why it has not yet been done and when will you accommodate these apps in your store.
       
      Cheers
      Raghav
