I Bought a

 after having massive hassles with a Philips TV and BBC iPlayer, ITV player etc.
A friend recommended LG, so I bought one.

NOW I find while you have iPlayer, ITV, Ch4, Ch5 players AREN'T available for my 2020 edition TV.

Is this going to be resolved or will I be returning the TV?

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.

      Spinning tadpoles while I know I have a good internet connection as verified by Speedtest on my phone!
      do they want me to upgrade my TV or use an Amazon Firestick to do anything useful? planned obsolescence again! FFS I have 70’s video games that work, but a TV bought a few years ago has been made obsolete by auto upgrades that if i don’t accept I am reprimanded by support and told to accept?

      Hello there,
      Is it possible to turn off search on the home screen, or filter results to show only apps? Ideally, I'd like to limit content to be appropriate for kids.

      Hello there,
      How to remove pre-installed apps from webos 23 like Netflix and Amazon prime?

      The specs for the magic remote promise "Voice Recognition with Intuitive Mouse Like Pointing and Wheel Control". I think that would be nice. The current implementation of scrolling via the wheel on the magic remote is not intuitive. Why would I move my thumb up to pull the text shown on the screen down to the bottom?
      Question is, can we please get natural scrolling for WebOS 5.5.0 and newer? Some option in the settings would be fine. The current "unnatural" scrolling is a major obstacle in usability for me, and the main reason to not buy LG again.
