HBO MAX rip off

Question

We are paying $14.99 through YouTubeTV for HOB Max....but...we are not getting the full HBO Max....something like HBO Now.

Why is LG letting YoutubeTV place an HBO Max icon on its site, letting subscribers pay full freight, and not get the full HBO Max????

Not fair or right!

As soon as an alternative arrives we will go to it.

Please explain!

Hi @Offtrail

LG are not the arbiters of what a third parties do or charges for their services.

LG did negotiate with YoutubeTV, which is in their app list, which we pay for. Through the YoutubeTV app you can buy HBOMax. Someone in LG either did not check the YoutubeTV content details or missed the fact you don't receive the full product. If you use your log in on hbomax.com on your computer or their phone app, you can receive the entire product, just not on the LG OLED tv.

Either LG didn't pay attention, or received a better price for the product that seems to include HBO now, or they didn't want to spend the time integrating HBO MAX into their programing infrastructure because, in the future, they may deal with HBO Max directly.

My 2 cents

Either way, if you are paying the same as the platforms ($14.99) that carry, we are getting a lesser product. Maybe I will also communicate with youtubetv, who gets the $15.

      I am developing a web hosting app for the LG TV.
      I have my appinfo.json like this
      {
        "id": "com.xxx.xxxxx",
        "version": "1.0.0",
        "vendor": "Example.com",
        "type": "web",
        "main": "index.html",
        "title": "My App",
        "appDescription": "An app for you",
        "icon": "app-images/icon.png",
        "largeIcon": "app-images/largeIcon.png",
        "bgImage": "app-images/launchBGImage.png"
      }
      the only thing that I have seen displaying right is the icon.png.
      The large icon, that I suppose will show where the primevideo icon is showing on the next picture

      is not showing.
      Also the launchBGImage.
      How do I make them show?

      Hello, I have a problem with Webos 4.5.
      The 1TB  USB disk  is full, one half of photos, music and movies and the rest had been left for TV recordings.
      Now that the recordings filled up all of it and the recording function is no longer available, I tried to get rid of some recordings but it always fails to delete them. 
      I tried to delete other files like photos or movies but no luck.
      I tried to connect the USB drive to a PC but it can't read it.
      The TV has no problems browsing it, it jus can't delete any file.
      Any idea on how to proceed?
      Thank you for your feedback!
