Showtime and Starz Apps Just Twirl - Won’t Play

Question

Sometimes the Showtime and the Starz apps. will not play videos. The little loading icon just twirls. A couple days later they might work fine.  I have tried signing out, deleting the app, reloading it from the LG Store, then signing back in, but it doesn’t solve the problem. Broadband speed tests are above 110 MB. 

Because it happens with both apps, it seems it could be some sort of an LG handshake or verification problem.

Casting Showtime and Starz movies to my LG 43UM6910PUA 4K UHD TV from the corresponding app on my iPhone works fine  but it ties up the phone.

Has anyone else had this problem and found a solution?

To fix the ‘stuck loading video’ problem on LG TVs for premium apps, do the following:

1.  Go to Settings>All Settings>General>Location>LG Services Country.

2.  Select a country other than the one you are actually in.

3.  Let the TV reboot automatically, then go back to Settings>All Settings>General>Location>LG Services Country.

4.  Reselect your actual country and let the TV reboot automatically.

You will have solved the problem until the next update of LGwebOS or a premium channel app. Given that there are LG owners complaining about the problem all over the Internet, i don’t know why it is not addressed by LG in Troubleshooting.

      I had recently purchased LG NANO80 and got the WebOS updated too. However, I am not able to find Zee5 App to download. All the other Apps viz. ALT Balaji, Netflix, PrimeVideo and many others are listed in the AppStore but Zee5 is neither available by default nor available for download. Is it removed? 
      Thanks for any help in advance.

      A recent YouTube update on my LG smart 55 inch TV has disabled the slidebar on the YouTube app. I'm unable to forward or reverse a video, the video starts replaying from the beginning.  Has anyone experienced a similar issue?

      I used to cast from ace stream directly to my UJ6300 and I had no problems until a few days ago when the TV got an update for WebOS 3.7 I think. Now whenever I try to cast to the TV it just shows a black screen on the "Web App Viewer" app, I was wondering if maybe I could set a different player as default player when streaming from my phone instead of the Web App Viewer, as when I play from other sources it starts the "Photo&Video" player. 
      Otherwise I think I would have to downgrade the OS to the previous stable version. 
      Anyone else having this problem?

      How to get SONYLIV AND VOOT KIDS app in LG store to install in my LG webos TV
    • By AspieMum
      I installed a few apps trying to get Casting to work that didn't work properly and I can't find anyway to uninstall them. My TV doesn't seem to have edit mode perhaps because I have had it a few years (pre-2018 some when- possibly its 10 years old or more as I can't remember when I got it). Anyone know how I can uninstall them?
