Web Os is very limited,  it doesn't even include PHILO . I absolutely love my LG TV's, but  I agree with the post web OS is just terrible.  I run a roku stick on one of my LG's, and a fire stick on the other. 

No Smart TV supports Philo. It isn't a major player in the streaming game, or even within the subset of cable-replacement packages.

I literally quoted the Philo website. Call BS on them.

All my friends smart TVs support Philo, Toshiba  smart TV's support Philo,  to say no smart TV's support Philo is just BS. I call it as I see it, Web OS is garbage, LG tV's are awesome,  the solution,  buy a ruku stick and you'll have a  OS  that you can use. 

The enclosed screen shot from philo's website says otherwise.

Though this is nothing but a rant, I second the fact that WebOS is a bad concept. It can't do some essential things which, for comparison, Samsungs Tizen can do. I have my G1 since a few weeks now and struggle with simple things that simply shouldn't exist, like

1. Sleep timer is deactived in my TV, but it will continue to nag you after 4h of not using the remote.

2. No support for DTS passthrough or Dolby Vision (E-AC3). It plays E-AC3, but comes up with a warning and the video will stop at some point.

3. The media player shows the file names from the movie name inside of a MKV instead of showing the real name.  WTF?!

Doesn't LG strife for being at least as good as Samsung in both, hardware and software? A smart TV is supposed to be smart, not just a TV.

      I just bought a lg b7 oled and have a problem. I dont subscribe to cable so I wont ever be using it on this tv. Every time I start the tv it loads the OS and the cable-less static comes on the screen and BLASTS through the speakers. The tiles for netflix, hulu, etc are at the bottom so I choose one of those. How do I stop the tv from defaulting to turning on the "tv" that clearly doesnt exist? Ive tried deleting the tile for live tv, and even moving it to the far right side but still every time I turn n the tv - static with the menu on the bottom.

      Is there any way to change the defaults to your own.
      For example I shut down my BT headphones and every time LG tv changes to internal speakers and I have to manually change to what I want ?

      I'm surprised by how few Settings there are.  Is there an Android Settings App?

      The idea of a smart tv in a free world is to access whatever you want, and since some applications are monitored and blocked on LG network, it does not feel like freedome of choice especially that it is available on competitor TVs.
      Shahid.net is for some reason blocked on LG and we need it to be open.
      Is there anychance that will happen any time soon?
