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 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.

      Airtel XStream in India is a premium tv streaming app like hotstar, SonyLiv and Zee5. Airtel XStream covers more channels than it would be a primary choice for many users as the price are competitive. 
      Airtel is one of the top3 cellular network provider and most of the people in India use their service. Airtel provides combo packages for tv and cellular services which would be first choice for many users like me.
      This app is already available on ios and android tv.

      When I am trying to play premium content on hotstar, it is showing me the playback error. Please resolve this. In other devices it is working perfectly. I have raised this to hotstar they asked me to raise it to TV manufacturer. Attach is the screenshot of the issue.

      Just bought an LGLED-65UJ630 65INCH TV. Right away I started to get the message "This app will now restart to free up more memory". After searching the internet and forums, I now understand that this problem is huge, it has been going on for years now and it is right across many models of LG TV's.
      I have tried everything to fix this problem. It has the latest firmware. I did the factory reset and that lasted 4 hours before I got the message back. I turn off the TV and leave it for 10 minutes, maybe one hour later I get the message. I delete browsing history, maybe 10 minutes and I get the message..... you get the message.
      As I understand it, the problem is that LG TV's don't have enough internal memory, but they have shipped a ton of their "smart" TV's with this problem.
      My question is, has anybody heard anything from anybody, anywhere about a solution to this problem. I really want to keep this TV, but it is not fit for purpose in this state.

      Hello, Since a few days, I do not have the possibility to watch videos on the application youtube of my TV LG 49UB850V in 4K. In the settings, it stops at 1080p. I have a very good internet connection (fiber optic), and especially, there are still a few weeks, I could do it without problem. A test video of youtube in 4K is only available in 1080p on my tv, while on the computer, it is available in 4K. On my most recent LG 55C8 also by the way, the 4K is possible on this same video. I did the test with lots of videos, same result. LG does not know how to solve the problem, I uninstalled and reinstalled the application but it does not change anything. I did nothing special on my TV before this change, it is done overnight. Do you have the same problem?
