Hotstar not available on WebOS

Question

Hi Team,

I have LG tv model LG 42LF6500 with Web OS version 04.06.30.

I believe this is the latest version i can have on my tv. Please advise when next further   versions will be available for my tv.

Also, Hotstar is not available on my tv. I have dropped mail to hotstar team for the same but did not hear anything.

Please assist if there is any possibility for the same.

Regaards,

Govinda

I am facing the same issue my TV Model is LG 43LF6300,  got to know that the content store is very much updated for the most recent LG Smart TVs.  This is pathetic, got a TV for almost 60k in 2015 and now I am not even able to access entertainment app like HOTSTAR. LG team should better consider old users and optimize their platforms for making it compatible with earlier versions

Hi Govinda,

I believe your TV is running webOS 2.0, the number you have quoted is the release number, and at this time Hotstar have taken the decision not to support it.

Hi Govinda,

If you highlight 'TV Information' and press 'OK' you will find listed the webOS version which is different to the software version.  Your TV originally shipped with webOS 2, although it may have received and upgrade to webOS 3, but that is still no guarantee your model will be supported.

Hi George,

As you are a support member and all support team shoud give resolution to an issue you should mention how the user can upgrade the web os version or the firmware to install manually ,

Could you please respond with the solution ?? Or we have wasted our money buying this 42LF6500 SMART TV? 

Don't tell to watch HOTSTAR I need to buy another tv.  We are now in 2020 , I think you can give a solution by now, if any workaround is available please do let us know.

@George Hofmeister

LG products are bad I will not recommend anybody to buy here onwards, in this android age they are using some age old technology that to they don't support. If you buy you ll be on your own , only God can help. Better to stay away from their products. Did a mistake buying this TV . I could have bought Sony Bravia in same price shit. 

I know u all support people will not respond, so f**k you guys, this post I ll share in my social media. And insist all my followers not to buy LG products atleast they can save their money.

      I have lg tv model 49UJ6525, last weekend the tv updated to version 05.80.35, but now I realized that I can no longer use the 5 GHz WIFI network, the network is disconnecting and connecting all the time. I did a test with the 2.4 Ghz network and it works normal, but I would like to use the 5GHz network.
      Is it possible to solve this problem?
