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.

That isn't Philo's website, dude. Look at the URL, and then look at the link I posted a few days ago. This conversation is getting more insipid with every reply you make.

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.

      In the specifications of this LaserTV it is shown that WebOS 6.0 should be installed on this device.
      The latest Device Firmware Version is 3.01.02 and i am missing the RTL+ App (Germany) which should be available with WebOS 6.0 
      So any info when there will be a "real" WebOS 6.0 available on the Cinebeam HU915EQE?

      webOS updated, I think to 2023, on my C2 a couple of days ago. Since then the News option on the Sky News app no longer works, instead timing out. The Weather and Climate options still work, though.
      I have deleted and reloaded the Sky News app, but the problem remains.
      Does anybody have any suggestions of what I might try to get this working again, or is this something for LG, or Sky, to fix?

      Hey everyone, I've been using my LG WebOS TV for some time now, and there's a small but impactful change I'd love to see. Currently, when the TV is turned on without an HDMI input, it defaults to displaying a wallpaper. It's not aesthetically pleasing, it's a bit of an inconvenience for users like me who primarily use the TV's smart features.My suggestion is to include an option that allows the TV to boot directly into the Home screen, displaying all the available apps and streaming options right away. This would streamline the user experience, making it faster and easier to access the services we use most.Would love to hear the community's thoughts on this. Cheers!
