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

      I have 42B670V-ZA tv bought in 2014. This model has different numbers/letters depending from the distribution area. Mine is for Poland.
      Software version is 05.05.70,
      WebOS version is 1.4.0-2532 afro-ashley. This model was made with the intention of upgrading to WebOS 2 and so it was manufactured. In late 2014, once the tv was still on market, European and US (with a different name), LG Korea has announced that this model would not have upgrade. Nevertheless I think it STILL IS a way to make it higher or at least faster, as it was on a very beginning. Now it coughs after using 45 mins on Netflix or 30 mins on WWW app when watching film online. When instslling new app, it shows such data:
      Version of the app i.e. 1.1.1
      Date of last update of the app i.e. 20.04.2015
      Size of the app i.e. 105 KB
      Rating i.e. "everything" (???)
      Internal memory i.e. 850MB/973MB
      Does anybody know, how to do this either using
      service mode or 
      Installing some software from a memory card
      or in any other way? The problem is that the tv has not enough memory to operate apps. I cannot release the memory without loosing my settings. I live in Warsaw, Poland, but I have additional apps like HULU and Amazon Prime US which enables me watching US content (I pay for them in USD).
      Uninstalling other useless apps didnt work. Now I have only system apps and 3 more like Netflix, HULU and Amazon. I cannot even install anything more. LG support told me to return to factory settings which wipes all memory out. I dont want to return to WebOS 1.0. I just want my tv to work faster BACK AGAIN and maybe to use some other apps which cannot be installed due to insufficient space on card/disc and to install some apps that are compatible with WebOS 2. (Now they are not apperaing neither in Polish LG store nor in US store, once I change the region to US/CANADA/MEXICO.
      Thanks in advance!!!
