BBC iPlayer app in LG Content Store


Halli

Question

I'm just setting up a friends new LGTV and can't find the BBC iPlayer (or any of the other UK catchup apps) in the Content Store.  Am I looking in the wrong place or doing the wrong thing.

 

The TV (55UN7306) doesn't have the Freeview play facility so I can't use that to help him.

 

Thanks in anticipation.

I've just established that LG don't have agreements with the UK providers to use their catchup apps in their 2020 range of TVs.  This must be a major negative when considering an LGTV at the moment.   

 

Let's hope that "the powers that be " give this the urgency it deserves.

Hi @Halli

Are you based in the UK?

From LG customer services :-

 

In regard to the UK on-demand applications, I am sorry, but currently these are unavailable for download. This is the catch-up applications, such as: BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub and 4 On Demand (Freeview Play). Although, apps such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and YouTube are still available for download. I sincerely apologise for the inconveniences this will cause. 

At the moment, some of our new 2020 TV models could be missing some catch-up apps; however, LG are in the process of working directly with the broadcasters to feature their catch-up players in our 2020 range of televisions. 

Discussions are currently ongoing, and a software update will be provided soon. This will be downloadable through your TV via the internet. I would be unable to comment as to when this may be, although I advise ensuring that “Automatic Updates” are enabled on your TV.

      I recently set up a new C1 and when I am running Apps like Prime video or Netflix, the damn channels app keeps turning itself on and interrupting what I’m watching. Any recommended fixes????

      We just purchased a new LG WebOS TV OLED 65" and running the setup through the app or the TV remote says it can't load the user agreement. This is blocking us from getting to streaming apps like Nexflix or any smart functions like Voice assistant.
      TV worked fine for a few days but voice assistant stopped working and after much effort LG tech said to  Reset to Initial Settings. Now we have mentioned no smart functions. TV is on ethernet and its browser functions on web fine. Tried running off neighbor's wifi with same results.
      Tried switching to different country, unplugging/hold power button for 20 seconds/wait one minute,  resetting TV multiple times, setting up remote again, ...
      Error message: Unable to Load User Agreements  A server error has occurred while downloading  the User Agreements. You must download and agree to the terms of the User Agreements to use this feature or application. Do you want to try to download them again… Unable to Load User Agreements  Sorry, but the User Agreements  can't be downloaded at this time…Please check your internet connection and try again later.    No change when trying over five days.
      Now there is no local company available to service TV. Maybe it's time to send it back and give LG TV a one star rating. I am willing to change motherboards but doubt if LG would go along with that.
      Anyone have any ideas.

      Please add feature to support view on playback speed 1.5x, 1.75x & 2x for all apps.
      Also, if possible give us chrome browser so that one can watch on browser with 2x playback speed support.

      Hi all
       is there a way to view content from my own channel in Youtube? Much of my own content has the ‘unlisted’ or ‘private’ attribute and will not appear in search results, so I need to be able to go to my own channel and sekect the video from there, but that seems not to be possible. Or is it?
