Delete the app. Restart the tv. wait for atleast 3 mins. Reinstall and login again.

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

      I have an LG OLED55C6P TV. Because of hearing difficulties, I generally use bluetooth headphones when watching the TV.  As far as I have been able to determine, there appears to be no way to use the headphones and also have the TV speakers working at the same time. This means that if I'm watching TV, no one else can watch and listen unless they have headphones.  Am I missing something?  Is there a way to have the headphones and TV speakers working at the same time?

      No apps (Hulu, YouTube, Netflix, LG channels) will play content on LG Nano 9 after most recent software update. Any suggestions to fix without waiting for next update?

      I have an OLED65C9PLA. Was fine when I went on holiday came home and Netflix and Prime wasnt working.
      My current situation is I can use the TV web browser and search for and open web pages no problem at all, but if I press the Netflix or Prime button I get the LG content loading screen (the redish picture with a tv on it) then after a few seconds a black screen with try again. Error code -7 or sometimes a -34? cant remember. Network is fine both Wifi and cable. I use cable for the TV but have removed and tried with Wifi. Same results. If I select the LG content App it does the same loading screen then error. Everything else seems fine, just when ever the content apps are needed crash.
      I have looked into many things, removing the plug from the wall (left for over 30min), Some hard reset thing where you press and hold the power button for 20 seconds, Factory reset. From what I can see I have the latest LG software 5.20.15. As I said all was good when I left, nothing changed then didnt work. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
