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.

      New 4K Ultra Short Throw Model Delivers Immersive Cinematic Experiences
      with Sharp, Vibrant Images and Boasts Stylish, Modern Design

      SEOUL, May 20, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) is expanding its premium CineBeam 4K laser projector lineup with the remarkable, new Ultra Short Throw (UST) laser projector (model HU915QE), the follow up to the HU715Q released earlier this year. Designed with serious movie lovers in mind, LG’s latest flagship home cinema solution can produce a stunningly sharp 90-inch image when placed just 5.6 centimeters from the wall or a massive 120-inch picture at a distance of only 18.3 centimeters.1
      Thanks to the HU915QE’s combination of advanced projection technology, users no longer need a large, dedicated space to enjoy sublime cinematic experiences at home. Boasting 3,700 ANSI lumens and an impressive 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio, LG’s latest projector delivers vibrant, realistic pictures that ensure maximum viewing immersion. By adopting LG’s evolved, three-channel laser technology, which employs a separate light source for each primary (RGB) color, this new model is able to offer more vivid images even during the day compared to other conventional products with the single light source technology.2
      An excellent all-rounder, the HU915QE really excels when playing movies and streaming content in 4K HDR, using HDR Dynamic Tone Mapping to analyze and adjust image brightness every single frame. LG’s Brightness Optimizer II further elevates the new CineBeam projector’s performance, automatically adjusting brightness levels according to ambient light conditions so that users can enjoy clear, vivid picture quality whether the room is well lit or as dark as a movie theater. Additionally, Adaptive Contrast adjusts the projector’s light sources to provide a superb contrast for each individual scene.
      With LG’s intuitive webOS smart platform onboard, the HU915QE lets users watch all their favorite shows from streaming services3 such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, YouTube and Apple TV without an additional device. They can also wirelessly stream content via Screen Mirroring, Apple AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth.4 On top of that, its built-in 2.2 Channel, 40W speaker system enhances the viewing experience with strong, rich audio. For more powerful, theater-like surround sound, users can effortlessly connect up to two LG Bluetooth speakers at once.5
      The new CineBeam projector also makes a stylish addition to any room with its eco-friendly ‘Re-wool’ designed by renowned Danish textile company, Kvadrat. Made from 45 percent recycled wool, this material has become a favorite of design- and sustainability-conscious companies worldwide, used in products as diverse as furniture and premium audio solutions. Thanks to its muted, natural color and clean design, the HU915QE blends in well with luxurious home interiors.
      “Featuring LG’s latest projection technologies, the new CineBeam projector delivers outstanding 4K picture quality from a short distance,” said Seo Young-jae, senior vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “An excellent choice for movie lovers seeking authentically cinematic experiences at home, the HU915QE combines superb performance with convenient features, easy installation and a sophisticated, space-friendly design.”
      LG CineBeam 4K laser projector (model HU915QE) with the latest UST technology will be available in the first half of 2022, starting with key markets in North America, Europe and the Middle East, with Latin America and Asia markets to follow. 
      Specifications:
      HU915QE Resolution 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) Brightness 3,700 ANSI Lumens Light Source 3 Channel Laser Lamp Life 20,000 hours Brightness Optimizer II Auto Brightness + Adaptive Contrast + Iris Mode Throw Ratio 0.19 (100 inches @ 9.8cm) Screen Size 90-120 inches Keystone Correction 4/9/15 Point Warping webOS Yes (Global) Wireless Android / iOS Integrated Speaker 2.2 Channel, 40W Inputs HDMI x 3 with eARC / USB 2.0 x 2 Size (W x D x H) 680 x 347 x 128 mm  # # #
      1 Model HU915QE projects images ranging from 90 to 120 inches in size (measured diagonally).
      2 Compared to model HU715Q in result of internal testing.
      3 Internet connection and subscription to streaming services required. Supported services may differ by country.
      4 Streaming and mirroring content from iOS devices available via Apple AirPlay 2 and Apple HomeKit. iOS devices require software version 12.3 and above (macOS version 10.14.5 and above for Apple products) and must be on the same Wi-Fi network as LG CineBeam projector.
      5 Compatibility guaranteed with LG Bluetooth speakers only. Needs to purchase LG Bluetooth speakers to use this function.

      Innovation leads to new creations, new experiences and, sometimes, new ways of looking at the world. Encompassing all of these outcomes is the generative art of envelope-pushing artist and NFT pioneer, Kevin McCoy, who is presenting new works at the Frieze New York 2022 art fair in Manhattan from May 18-22. His ever-evolving works, which autonomously grow and change through the use of algorithms and other advanced tech, have found the perfect digital canvas in the form of the latest OLED TVs from the lifestyle innovator, LG.

      McCoy’s thought-provoking and visually-stunning new pieces are on show at the ‘LG OLED Lounge,’ located on level eight of Frieze New York’s official venue, The Shed. A selection of his groundbreaking works are displayed on state-of-the-art LG OLED TVs, including new LG OLED evo models, which use millions of self-lit pixels to deliver the deepest blacks, incredibly natural colors and an infinite contrast ratio.

      The centerpiece of the exhibit, Quantum Leap: Primordial Star 3 (2022), is an NFT, or non-fungible token, co-created by McCoy and his wife, Jennifer. Inspired by Kevin McCoy’s 2014 work Quantum – which was the first artwork ever to be tokenized on a blockchain – Quantum Leap: Primordial Star 3 employs code-based, interacting systems that produce mandalas that change form and color as they ‘age,’ echoing the lifespan of stars.
      Displayed alongside Primordial Star 3 in the LG OLED Lounge are Quantum Leap 3: Dark Star (2022) and Quantum Entanglement (2022), both also created by the celebrated husband-and-wife duo. The ‘star’ in Dark Star slowly loses its color over the course of its life before being reborn with a new central shape and vivid palette, generated autonomously via programming. Quantum Entanglement is a hybrid of drawings and NFTs that explores the nature of drawing, which is at once a performative act and a physical document that recalls or points to the existence of that act. Featuring physical drawings and digital animations made using software and a robotic drawing machine, Quantum Entanglement fuses physical with virtual elements in a way that is sure to delight and intrigue audiences.

      The shifting colors and forms of McCoy’s new works at Frieze New York are expressed with precision and vibrancy thanks to the next-generation display and processing technologies of LG OLED evo. LG’s new OLED evo Gallery Edition TVs offer higher brightness, clarity and detail for lifelike images that almost jump off the screen – with the 77- and 65-inch models used at the exhibit proving themselves as adept at showcasing digital art as they are at delivering outstanding viewing experiences.

      Complementing LG OLED evo TV models, the LG OLED Lounge at Frieze New York also features the 55-inch Transparent OLED signage displays. Boasting vivid colors and high transparency, the advanced screen presents digital artists like McCoy with exciting, new creative opportunities to explore. What’s more, McCoy’s artwork is demonstrated on a LG OLED Objet Collection, an artistically inspired and distinctive lifestyle TV model.
      LG was named Global Partner of the Frieze art fair, and this exhibit in New York exemplifies LG’s commitment to innovation within the arts and supporting artists to push their creative boundaries.

Able to serve as practically any kind of space, from an office or recording studio to a video-editing workroom or even a lounge, the OMNIPOD is a future mobility solution that completely reimagines the in-vehicle experience.
      Additionally, LG is displaying its world-class 6G communications technologies, including Full Duplex Radio transmission and reception tech that maximizes frequency efficiency, and a power amplifier device, jointly developed with the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI), for the wireless transmission and reception of 6G THz data.
