I have the C8 OLED 4K HDR AI Smart TV - 65" and cannot find CBS All Access in the LG Content Store.  I also can't find which version of WEB OS I have.  I have my TV set to automatic updates, it is connected via ethernet and believe everything is up to date.  Is this not available to the US Market?  Also, I have registered my model TV: OLED 65C6PU at the LG main site, but I can't check if my TV is compatible with the WEB OS version for CBS ALL ACCESS.   I purchased this late 2017, so I think my TV can run it- I use all the other streaming services through the Web OS- Vudu, Hulu, Prime, Netflix 4k, etc.   Any suggestions?  This site- lgwebos.com should be able to recognize my User ID info with the main site.  I have the same username, etc. but it doesn't seem to pull my TV up.

If anyone can help me figure this out, I'd really appreciate it.  I'm fairly up on the latest technology, but this dual sites that don't recognize each other (or my registered equipment) is really frustrating!  Thanks in advance- Anyone!

There’s no way that can happen as we are not owned or operated by LG. We are a user to user support forum for LG webOS and other webOS devices. If you are looking for official LG support, please contact them directly.

Thanks for your quick reply Alex.  Well, that makes a whole lot of sense.  Apologies- your site looked like LG's "official" site, so my bad.   This is my first LG TV, and until recently, I expected that the WebOS would be updated at the same rate as the other TV software, and haven't had any issues running a wide range of streaming apps, including Vudu 4k and Netflix 4k and several others.  This CBS All Access seems to be an outlier in terms of technical requirements.

After doing a bit more research, it appears that I'm outta luck with regards to upgrading to WebOS 4.0 or higher.  My model, OLED 65C6P-U is a 2017 set that's running version is: 3.3.4-3714 (dreadlocks-dharug).  I was hoping there was some kind of work around in the community here to update it, even if it's not the "officially" approved method.  I figured that its Linux-based and some folks out here may have figured out a way to upgrade the OS, especially if its a smaller, incremental update (like 3.34 to 4.0).  It just makes me wonder if LG arbitrarily chose 2018 as a cut off for upgrading the WebOS.  It's really frustrating, as unlike a phone you replace every 2 years or so, with a TV you tend to hold onto 5-10 years.

Would you know if there's a work-around out there, maybe something I could dload to a USB stick and update that way? 

If, as I fear, there is no way to update the WebOS, would you know if there is a work-around where I could cast CBS All Access through my Ipad Pro or iPhone 7plus.  I also have a MacBook Pro, but its a late 2013 model.  There appears to be several 3rd party apps in the LG Content Store that offer a variety of device/display sharing, but I'm not sure which app would allow me to cast the CBS App.

Any assistance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.   Aside from this WebOS limitation on updating, I've loved the picture quality and have been satisfied with the Smart TV features LG has- although you'd probably agree that at this point there really should be much more standardization between mfr's on the software, CODECs, especially regarding HDR, Dolby, and other 4K features.

Thanks in advance for your feedback- I appreciate it.
Sincerely,
Bob Gearing

I am experiencing some video stuttering with the CBS All Access app on my LG 55UK6090PUA. It appears to drop whole frames. It doesn't happen frequently but enough to be annoying. Who do I contact about this problem?

In contrast, when played through my Roku 2 hooked up to the same TV on HDMI I have never experienced this problem.

Note: This also occurs on the WebOS Hulu app. I've never experienced the problem using the WebOS Netflix or Prime Video apps.

      On Behalf of Premium Brand LG SIGNATURE, LG Introduces
      Immersive Performances at the LG Arts Center SEOUL

      SEOUL, Nov. 28, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) brought together the world of art and technology with its ultra-premium brand, LG SIGNATURE, sponsoring two immersive performances at the LG Arts Center SEOUL in South Korea last week.
      One of the most sought-after performances in the Center’s opening festival, the series introduced Korean audiences to Yoann Bourgeois, renowned artistic director-choreographer and performance artist, for the first time. The performance series well marks LG’s time-old commitment to the cultivation of the arts beginning from the operation of the LG Arts Center SEOUL.
      After 22 years of operation, the LG Arts Center SEOUL re-opened its doors again to the public in October in a building designed by Japanese architectural virtuoso Tadao Ando. A testimony to LG’s devotion to the arts, the relocated Center boasts a spacious, new performance venue, the LG SIGNATURE Hall. The remarkable space has seating for 1,335 and is home to special performing arts programs from all over the world, including the Yoann Bourgeois series.
      Introduced to South Korea for the first time, Bourgeois, who has a diverse background that includes circus training, is a major figure in the global contemporary performing arts scene. His riveting performances celebrate the beauty of physical movement, blurring the boundary between acrobatics and dance and revealing a truly unique creative vision. Bourgeois’s artistry and innovative approach to his craft echo the philosophy of LG SIGNATURE, a brand whose home appliances seamlessly unite the best of art and technology.
      Proudly sponsored by LG on behalf of the LG SIGNATURE brand, the inspiring He Who Falls was performed by the National Choreographic Center of Grenoble under Bourgeois’s direction, with the late Frank Sinatra’s signature song, My Way, accompanying the dynamic movements of the performers. Opening 2, a short yet equally mesmerizing work, introduced audiences to the grace, power and presence that Bourgeois so effortlessly brings to the stage. As a part of LG SIGNATURE’s extensive customer experiences, select customers and clients were invited to attend both performances.
      During the Yoann Bourgeois series, visitors to LG Arts Center SEOUL were treated to an opportunity to enjoy the exclusive pop-up LG SIGNATURE exhibition and photo zone located in the LG SIGNATURE Hall lobby. Echoing the unique architectural design philosophy of Tadao Ando, the exhibition zone offered a glimpse into the best of LG SIGNATURE’s innovations, such as the Wine Cellar, InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator and OLED R TV. Meanwhile, the ultra-interactive photo zone featured memorable moments from the Yoann Bourgeois series for audiences to immerse in.
      “It was a great honor to introduce audiences in Korea to the artistic innovation of the inimitable Yoann Bourgeois,” said Lee Jeong-seok, head of LG Electronics Global Marketing Center. “Staying true to our philosophy, we will continue to partner with artists and institutions that share our vision of a better world through the power of art.”
      An innovative brand founded on the philosophy of bringing art and technology together as one, LG SIGNATURE will continue to support the best of the arts, worldwide. More on the brand’s high-profile art collaborations can be found on

Exhibiting and debuting several creative, cutting-edge products that advance the digital art movement, LG brought its leading OLED technology to display diverse artworks in extreme detail, showing every little brushstroke while also explaining how LG merges technical essence with artistic creativity.
      Taking this opportunity to connect with the art scene on a deeper level, LG selected its stunning LG Transparent OLED Display to present the eye-catching MetaSkull artwork by renowned London-based Chinese artist , which took him and his creative team three years to perfect. A unique looping video at 4K, this masterpiece depicts a metaverse skull which opens a new chapter for art and is set to be auctioned off by Sotheby’s.
      With 38 percent display transparency, the stunning perspective design perfectly integrates the piece into the exhibition, with every fine detail of the skull revealed through the intense color contrast of LG OLED technology. Visitors and media guests were stunned by this superb technology’s ability to harness the power of technology to make amazing art into breathtaking art.

      The LG OLED Objet Collection was also present to display top digital art, including LG OLED Objet Collection Easel which, as its name suggests, resembles an elegant art frame and features a moveable fabric cover that offers a subtle, modern aesthetic. Also making an appearance was LG OLED Objet Collection Posé, which was being introduced to Hong Kong for the first time. The magnificent Posé boasts softly curved edges and a soothing, soft beige color which complements the woven fabric grooves on the back to make it aesthetically pleasing from every angle.

      Another newcomer to Hong Kong was LG OLED Flex, a groundbreaking TV that separates itself from traditional gaming displays as the world’s first freely bendable 42-inch OLED screen – a true TV history maker.

      In addition to newly launched products, LG also showcased the magnificent works of well-known artist on its 97-inch LG OLED evo Gallery Edition TV, once again demonstrating how LG’s self-lit OLED enables the ultimate digital canvas for the new generation of artists.

      Inside the Collector Showcase zone, LG OLED evo Gallery Edition TVs displayed two astonishing pieces by talented Hong Kong-based artist , who works with data, music and body movements to come up with the most unique creations. Chu’s inspiring Piano Wind NFT features vivid colors and contrast, which means it requires the lifelike colors only LG OLED evo Gallery Edition TV can produce to reach its full potential.

      This exciting collaboration with the Digital Art Fair Xperience represents LG’s transformation into a leading advocate of fine art, and once again reinstates the brand’s commitment to inspiring art creation through the unique values LG OLED ART continues to deliver around the globe.

      Commemorating national Energy Star Day 2022 in the United States, LG joined forces with home improvement retailer Lowe’s and non-profit Rebuilding Together to help a deserving family in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, under the theme of “Save Today, Save Tomorrow and Save for Good” with energy efficiency upgrades using Energy Star certified LG home appliances.

      “Rebuilding Together and Lowe’s are longtime partners and know the importance of making sure to replace or repair homes with materials that will last while also saving the homeowner money on energy bills,” said Beth Morrison, executive director of Rebuilding Together, who thanked LG — 2022 Energy Star Partner of the Year — for its important role in providing energy efficient appliances.
      Gary and Pat Turpin moved to the Hidden Valley neighborhood of Charlotte in 2000 after Mr. Turpin served in the U.S. Army, where he received the National Defense Service Medal among other honors. Mr. Turpin is visually impaired, and it has been difficult for the family to keep up with home repairs and maintenance.

      Volunteers from Lowe’s, LG and other local businesses converged on the Turpins’ home on Energy Star Day, Oct. 12. to replace kitchen and laundry room appliances and flooring, repair roofs and insulate for weatherization, paint interiors and exteriors and install smoke detectors and handicap-accessible features.
      The Energy Star appliance upgrades including an LG refrigerator, dishwasher and clothes washer and dryer will help make life easier for this family, adding convenience and energy efficiency to everyday living and saving them money over time. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, by choosing ENERGY STAR products such as appliances from LG, a typical household can save about USD 450 on their energy bills and still enjoy the quality and performance they expect.
      The refrigerator LG provided earned the Energy Star Most Efficient 2022 designation — representing the year’s very best products for energy savings and environmental protection — along with an Energy Star certified dishwasher. Rebuilding Together completed the kitchen makeover by installing an LG electric range and over-the-range microwave oven.

      As part of the home’s energy efficiency upgrades, Lowe’s and Rebuilding Together also are installing an Energy Star certified LG top-load washer and companion Energy Star certified LG dryer. Clothes washers and dryers that earn the Energy Star use about 20 percent less energy and about 30 percent less water than traditional models. To improve both indoor air quality and energy efficiency, LG also is providing the family an Energy Star certified air purifier.

      With support from a USD 350,000 grant from the Lowe’s Foundation in March, this project is one of more than 40 critical home repair projects planned for the Hidden Valley neighborhood as part of Rebuilding Together’s Building a Healthy Neighborhood program. Hidden Valley has a concentration of older single-family homes that are significantly less energy efficient than others across the country, on average. According to the EPA, low-income households pay up to three times more on home energy costs, as a proportion of total income and some are spending nearly 20 percent of their income on utility bills.

      “LG’s support of Energy Star Day 2022, in cooperation with the EPA, Lowe’s and Rebuilding Together, reflects our commitment to the environment and the community – core business principles for our company,” said John Taylor, senior vice president and head of corporate social responsibility and sustainability of LG USA. “This Energy Star Day and every day, LG and Energy Star help you save for good – for all the good things you want in your life and for a healthier planet for you and your family.”
