I own a LG HU85LS very happy with that but now I don't see the Disney plus app. 

Where an when can I get it?

Hi @ReneVlEugel

Unfortunately the only people who are going to be able to tell you if the HU85LS is going to get the app is Disney themselves.  Try asking them via their Twitter feed.

They mentioned to use the browser in this high end beamer, that works but [email protected]#€€#@ annoying. Far from app usability. Is there nothing LG can do about this? Disney plus should work on a webos 4.5 which my beamer is working on. 

Unfortunately there is nothing LG can do about any content provider not providing an app for the platform or specific device.  Writing an app for the webOS platform is relatively straight forwards in comparison say iOS as it uses a lot of standard HTML5 coding.  However, it does require knowledge of how the app is going to integrate and communicate with the content provider's infrastructure, so it is 'easier' if the content provider to write the app.

It can also be a problem to write for webOS if the content provider's infrastructure relies on old technologies such as Adobe Flash and has proprietary video streaming software.  Before HOTSTAR was able to produce an app they had to change/upgrade their set up; which was firstly evidenced by their website becoming compatible with the webOS browser to allow it to stream content.

Another issue is that LG while producing TVs that have brilliant picture quality, in global sales terms they only have roughly half the sales market than Samsung.  Thus content providers are firstly going to produce apps for the platform that has the largest market share and/or run Android.

At last I see the Disney plus app, but now the LG content store is mentioning, to use this app the software needs to be updated yes/no so I click yes and then I get the notification , "can't update software" 

Does anyone have an idea?

I did already power of and pull the power cord form the mains. And restarted.

      Anyone have a problem with this app running on LG 4K TV?
      iPlayer app constantly buffers or locks up
      I switch to NOW TV box (not app) & can watch  iPlayer without an issue.
      Also NETFLIX & other catch up apps  work without any buffering or locking.
      Interested to hear your thoughts....

      Recently bought an LG Smart TV in Ireland. 43Nano796NE .
       
      There is a button on the remote for Google assistant. Nothing happens when it is pressed. I downloaded the ThinQ app and have paired it to the TV and Google home assistant. I can turn on off the TV via Google and at best turn on Netflix via Google . Just wondering am I missing something else here given the button on the remote doesn't do anything? There is  also a buttonn for opening up Disney plus and that doesn't open up the app. The app button for Netflix and Prime does work. Maybe a first world problem only. Apps for Ireland are not great, would love to be able to download Virgin media player and All Four.

      Dear LG WebOS team,
      Now that Disney+ Hotstar service is officially available in Malaysia, why is the app still not available here?
      I can see the app in the content store when I change the service location to India, but not when it's Malaysia. Can you please provide the app in Malaysia as well?

      Hello,
      I'm desperately trying to log into my Disney + account on my TV with webOS;  my problem is with the password;  indeed in my password there is the symbol "€" but I cannot find it in the application among the 3 types of keyboards proposed.
       Do you have any idea how to do it apart from changing the password please?
       thank you so much
