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.

      Hi, I purchased my SMART TV model 43LF6300 in the year 2016 and current Firmware Version 04.06.40. Every one India using their favorite app like Disney Hotstar+, Zee5, Aaha and many more apps but those are not available on my TV which is annoying.. I spent Rs. 54000 to buy LG Smart TV but all the latest apps are not available. Please release the latest Web OS for these models at least Beta version unless the TVs like this will be useless and no one trust LG products. Thanks in advance and hope to receive latest Web OS soon.

      Hello Everyone,
       
      I have 2014 LG 47LB750T tv and I am happy with the TVs performance. It has just updated to newer 05.05.25 firmware. New apps are getting added in the store.
       
      I have been following HotStar app in my phone from quite a long time. It has a very good list of shows and movies list. I was wondering if we can have HotStar app for our WebOS tv as well. Recently DittoTV app has too been added which is a boon for those who have frequent DTH cable connection problem. It directly streams live over the Internet and package is very economical.
       
      If LG Developers can also introduce HotStar app for our LG TV it will be a big boost to the platform as it is very popular in India. They also have their own Original series just like Netflix which are also very good. So requesting devs to kindly introduce HotStar app for our WebOS TVs. Thank You.
