Hotstar App not available on LGWEBOS is 05.30.60 Model: OLED65C6P

Question

Hello:

Hotstar App not available on LGWEBOS is 05.30.60 Model: OLED65C6P

LGStore: USA 

Tweeting @hotstartweets they replied to contact LG Support see below:

Our app has been available on LG WebOS since 22nd Mar in India. If you have WebOS 3.5 or above and a supported TV, you should be able to find it in the store. For device specific compatibility details, please contact LG support.

Can you please advise am I unlucky the one who cannot be helped by LG Support or by Hotetar App Team OR there is a ray of hope?

Please advise ASAP!

We do support the OS version you have mentioned. For device compatibility you will have to contact LG support, as there is very less that we can do in this case.

Manish, we developed the app and it is available for all our LG TVs with WebOS 3.5 and above, so if there is a TV which is not showcasing the app, it is a compatibility issue from the device manufacturer, and how much we try to help you with this it wont help, as it is a device related issue.

Facing the same issue. 

I have LG OLED65B6T-T with software version 05.30.60 and Web OS version 3.3.4-4315 (dreadlock dharug)

Hotstar has tweeted to me as well that their app won't work in versions below WebOS 3.5.

Is there a possibility of LG updating its LG WebOS to 3.5 from the current version? 

 

Someone answer please.

 

Edit: The other thing that baffles me is that when AltBalaji, Spotify and Zee5 apps can be made available then what happened to Hotstar? Why can't Hotstar's developers create an app for versions lower than WebOS 3.5?

Possibly a lack of understanding of the platform, lack of competent programmer, or the possibility that updating their backend infrastructure would be too expensive.  Or it could just be that HotStar are colluding with LG to sell more TVs.

Will LG update B6 to WebOS 3.5?

      Hi there
      I've had my LG WebOS SmartTV for a couple of months, but in the past week or so I've noticed it's really started eating up all my home's Internet bandwidth, even when I'm just watching FreeSat TV and not running any apps.  It's connected to my router using wired ethernet, so it's not a WiFi problem.
      I can only assume that one the apps I've installed is suddenly decided to download a ton of data in the background.  But which one?
      The only solution I can think of is to install my apps one-by-one until my bandwidth issue improves.  And that's what I'll do.
      But I found this forum, and thought I'd ask you good people if any of you had had a similar experience.
      Here's the apps I've got installed:
      BritBox BBC iPlayer Spotify YouTube Amazon Prime Video NowTV AppleTV Thanks in advance for any tips

      My TV was bought in 2014 55UB850T-TA with WebOS TV version 1.4.0-2337 (afro-ashley). 
      I recently purchased the Disney hotstar subscription. But in the above version the LG content store does not show the Hotstar
      As per the news in this link we are eligible to upgrade to WebOS 2.0. But the automatic updates does not say it as WebOS 2.0 but still WebOS 1.4

      link hidden, please login to view Why this discrimination for old users of LG TV? How will I install new apps in this TV?

      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.
