Sorry but your question makes NO SENSE and is impossible to answer.

The REMOTE control DOES NOT USE WIFI OR ETHERNET, it uses RF direct from the remote to the TV.

So you were able to ask the TV, via the remote control, to download something from the internet, remember simply making the request DOES NOT REQUIRE ANY NETWORK INTERACTION. However the TV now needs a network connection in order to get the APP from the Internet.

Now that connection can be WiFi or Ethernet.

Are you sure that the TV uses Blue tooth to connect to its remote control, it is more usual to use Infra Red, which your phone probably does not have.

You have to construct your questions in a more concise manner, otherwise anyone trying to help you is simply GUESSING at what you are talking about.

For instance you use the phrase "one TV's button" DUH?

I have left my remote contol at home.

I have only one TV button interface. You make to change program channel, Up/Down volume and Power off.

You cannot launch applications using one button interface.

      The sales person in showroom pushed for LG saying it has better sound and picture richness. But obviously didn't reveal big shortcomings of non-android smart TV in today's ecosystem. This is useless as you are not having freedom to install apps of your choice from playstore. I can't even get Sonyliv. Horrible OS. Now I am trapped for years after buying this TV. Don't buy LG or other non-android TV unless you can affford to throw it in weeks. When will LG grow up?

      For those who get frequent WiFi connection drop-outs, I picked this bit of useful info from another forum. Note that this may well apply to many other LG models than the C9, as they often use common WiFi internal cards/modules:
      "Network/Ethernet/Wi-Fi
      Problem: C9 [or other models] will lose the wireless connection and you have to reconnect daily (but wired is stable);
      Conditions: TV is connected to a 5GHz router;
      Cause:           (1) the router may be unstable on the 5GHz band [possibly too far from router]; (2) the router has the 5GHz band set on a higher channel - over 100;
      Resolution: (1) change the TV to the 2.4GHz band
                                (2) set the channel [in the ROUTER advanced WiFi settings]!! for the 5GHz band below 100 (ex. 40-50) - [channel 36 is often OK]."
