Moved country - app availability

Question

Hi all

Sorry if this post is a double up, my previous question appears lost!

We have a LGB7v bought in the UK but we've moved to New Zealand. Is there a way for me to get access to NZ based apps? I've tried to change the "Location" but there's no Asia or Oceania option. I selected "Other" and all it did remove BBC iPlayer and UK apps from viewing but I also (annoyingly) had to review and change the display settings for each source again. Regardless, it doesn't seem to have helped me anyway.

Is there a way I get NZ apps and ensure my TV remains up to date with the correct firmware, etc.

Many thanks

Jay

Hi Jay

I did the same move a few years ago, luckily I happened to speak to LG in the Uk who told me a UK/EU TV won't work in NEW ZEALAND - unless it's connected to a sky box or something like that - the core function parts (app store, channels etc) simply don't work.  I latterly also discovered the same thing when moving from Australia to NEW ZEALAND - so there is a theme here.  Basically I think LG are delivering a very budget service for NEW ZEALAND consumers - the firmware updates do not include functionality improvements offered/made available in other countries (ie, Alexa)....  

My decision is my next TV will not be an LG, they simply don't support updates for long enough to make them worthwhile.

Thanks for replying Michael.

Just to let you know I can get the free to air digital channels on the LG no problem. I am also getting the firmware updates but perhaps not all features(?). I imagine they would serve the same FW worldwide and limit access via geography somehow.

Access to NZ specific apps is really the only problem I have had. Everything else seems to work fine and the picture is outstanding.

All the best.

Jason

      Webos: 5.1.0-3203 jhericurl-japoon 
      Connected via 5ghz wifi 5 feet away 300mbps
      All of a sudden, none of my apps load. Disney+, YouTube, etc. I click them and nothing happens. Everything was working fine 2 days ago... 
      Steps taken: factory reset, rebooted modem, Power cycled the TV (unplug for 2 minutes). The power cycle helped and I could start the apps after, ONE time and then after exiting Disney plus and trying to go back in, it won't launch. 
      I try to reinstall the apps but they lock up at "installing" not to mention lock up 80% of the time when trying to uninstall. 
       
      Help!

      I installed a few apps trying to get Casting to work that didn't work properly and I can't find anyway to uninstall them. My TV doesn't seem to have edit mode perhaps because I have had it a few years (pre-2018 some when- possibly its 10 years old or more as I can't remember when I got it). Anyone know how I can uninstall them?

      Hi, just bought a new LG OLED and pretty fast noticed that I`ve now chance to change the wallpapers ?!?

      Really pretty strange - even the smallest smartphone offers such a feature. The TV has enough USB interfaces - why is it not able to customize this by an own set of pictures ?

      Can`t be that big rocket science to implement this , especially for such an expensive device this should be a standard feature !!!

      Or did I  miss something in the settings of the TV ?
