That's not true. I have the UK streaming apps, iPlayer, ITVHub, My5 and, until last weekend, All4. Now All4 does not work - I have deleted the app and re-installed it but it doesn't start at all, I get error T006. All the other UK streaming services still work, and Netflix. What could be causing that All 4 error? Some licensing agreement? Why not just say that and not quote error T006?

When I bought my LG the only questions I asked were about downloading apps from the Internet. The store assistant assured me that I could - not exactually lying through his teeth, I asked the wrong questions -  whilst never mentioning the "LG Content Store" and that restriction.  If I had known that I could not download any and all apps, I would never have bought  this stupid "LG smart TV" - that restriction is not mentioned in any LG marketing literature which must surely contravene EU law.  In my opinion, calling such LG TVs "smart TVs" is false advertising. 

If there are licensing agreements impeding consumers enjoyment of their so-called "smart TVs",

a,) then LG has to inform its customers before purchase, and I suspect not doing so is illegal under EU law (if my All4 doesn't reappear I will consult a lawyer - I live in the EU, therefore outside the UK)

b.) why does LG  supply 4 IPTV browsers  in its "Content Store"?

A different question; why doesn't the "LG Content Store" include at least one VPN?

I have lots of doubts about WebOS - it's not user-friendly and I suspect riddled with bugs.

      I shifted to India from UAE with my 55SM9000PVA LG TV. Since it is a TV for the middle east, I can not change the region to India. Therefore I can not log in to my LG account and have apps from the LG content store of India. Ok, so I thought I should be able to use my account in UAE and use the apps which I used in UAE. Now these apps say the IP address is not from the region, so can't run those apps. So I am stuck up with an expensive smart TV without smartness. No service center, neither LG India have any answers to it. I hate using set top boxes please help.

      When I open the DSTV Now app on my lg tv I get the error “We’re sorry Something went wrong. Please try again.” 
      I have re installed the app, checked for firmware updates and even reset TV but the error keeps on appearing. 
      Any suggestions on how to fix this? Is it a tv issue or is it the app which is faulty?

      Hi.
      What can I do to get my TV to use the full broadband speed that I've got available.  My tv is a 55EC930V and is using a wired connection to my router.
      My broadband is currently running at 125Mbps.  When I use any other devices such as a laptop, mobile phone, etc the speed using fast.com returns anything between 120 to 130 MBps.
      But, when I use the web browser on the TV, it always maxes out at 33Mbps.  This value is reported by fast.com.
      If I use the speed test in the Netflix app, this returns approx 29Mbps.  I never get anything higher, so what's limiting it?  The same problem occurs for YouTube and that's the only other App that I've got installed.
      If the network board in the TV is supposed to be 10-100Mbps, why don't I get 100 Mbps?  I know I won't get 125Mbps because LG never puts 1Gbps in any of it's TVs.
