Delete the app. Restart the tv. wait for atleast 3 mins. Reinstall and login again. 
if still doesn’t work mail to [email protected] , make sure to attach the screenshot.

I have tried deleting the app, restarting tv and installling again. It DIDNT work.

I also tried to reset the LG TV to initial settings and reinstalled the app. Stil it DIDNT work.

After consulting with hotstar, i received the following response.

Dear Akhilesh,

Sincere apologies for the inconvenience.

This is a known issue with few models of LG TVs and we have already highlighted the issue to the LG Team.

We wish to inform you that we are working on a new video player which will be launched soon. Please note that the new player will resolve this issue. However, it will take up to 3-5 weeks. Appreciate your patience.

In the meantime, we request you to try accessing on our platform via a Laptop/Desktop Web browser or Hotstar mobile app.

Tejas Pawar
Hotstar Team.

This is a network issue.

I have noticed the same issue on my lg tv with hotstar,  this problems gets resolved when i switch the network of the tv to my  mobile hotspot. 

play the video on mobile hotspot, once the video starts, switch it back to wifi.


 This is not a fix but a work around, also if you switch off your tv, you will need to do the whole procedure again

Hope this helps

      When Im playing a movie in an app on my LG OLED TV the screen is turned off after 15 minutter and only showing for the lack of other words its "digital fireworks» and the text "Turn on screen by pressing any button on remote except power button».
      Its really annoying. 
      Every power/eco mode is off and no timer is active?

      Hi there,
      i have an 65oled9flb (webos).

      i want to install the app IPTV Smarters Player but i cannot find it in the content store.

      I tried different country's for LG Services to obtain it but no one worked.

      Any one an idea?
      I read that there are different apps in the store regarding what tv you have and which region you are. Does anyone have more information about that? Maybe they didn't support oled tvs or i don't know what else could be the reason.
