Need to stream Sportsnet Now...

Question

Hey all. I just bought an LG smart tv, but am already having doubts. I’m a hockey fan, and a subscriber to Sportsnet Now – which I preciously accessed via my old Apple TV. But I can’t seem to find a way to watch SN on my new tv. For one, there isn’t an app available in the LG store (why not?), and when I try to stream content via the SN website, using the tv’s browser, the video is near frozen. What gives?

On speaking with the folks at SN – particularly about why I couldn’t even stream from the SN website, via the LG browser – they said "Access via web browsers on Smart TVs is not supported due to supported protocols and DRM restriction capabilities on Smart TV browsers."

How does any of this benefit anyone?

Sounds like a SN issue. They don't support web browsers on tvs and have not made a tv app for lg, samsung, etc. On their website they list that they support:

Sportsnet NOW is available on 4th generation Apple TV boxes, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV and Chromecast.

So you can hook up one for those devices I supposed if you have them. Cheapest way is to to get an amazon or chromecast stick.

      The sales person in showroom pushed for LG saying it has better sound and picture richness. But obviously didn't reveal big shortcomings of non-android smart TV in today's ecosystem. This is useless as you are not having freedom to install apps of your choice from playstore. I can't even get Sonyliv. Horrible OS. Now I am trapped for years after buying this TV. Don't buy LG or other non-android TV unless you can affford to throw it in weeks. When will LG grow up?
