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?

      Hello,
      I have a LG smart tv (made in 2012), with netflix application pre-installed in it. Unfortunately, the netflix application does not support arabic subtitles, but it support other subtitles like english, frensh, spanish.
      Is there any workaround for this ? Is there any possibility to upgrade the netflix application, which I already tried with no luck to find another version. 
      Please advise, many thansk.

      I own OLED55C9 TV.
      I use Apple TV 4K with the TV. I enabled HDMI-CEC option in settings to be able to turn on my TV when my Apple TV is also turned on.
      But I would like to have also ability to turn TV off when Apple TV is turned off. Now I cannot do this (at least with webOS version 04.71.05).
      It will be awesome for me because in this case I don't even need to find LG TV remote. I need to use just build in Apple TV app on my iPhone which is very simple and useful.
      I use my LG TV only with Apple TV box. I don't like using build in TV's apps because LG remote has a lot of buttons and it is not as simple and useful... So Apple TV clear winner for me in terms of usability. 
      Please add ability to turn TV off (via HDMI-CEC) when TV box is go sleep/turned off.
      BTW, turn off feature works perfectly fine with Samsung TVs.

      OLED65B8 webOS browser won't accept password for Amazon.com account.  Winows Chrome on desktop or Android phone both sign in normally.
      I have several other account sign-ins that do the same thing -- work on desktop but not on TV.  What's going on?
