@Jeff Stevens Your LG TV model is not mentioned. It is often very useful to post this, as functions, APP availabilty, and WebOS/Firmware levels vary a lot.  Plus APP availabilty varies greatly from 2016 to 2017, and 2019/2020 TV's. As the internal hardware (CPU type/capability/cores, memory amount) varies, so does the ability to handle complex APP needs.

With the above in mind, I suspect that what you are seeing is the APP crashing at the Advert transitions. It is very common in older sets (like my 2014 LG), to see this either at the start or end of an advert, a hang or rotating wait graphic (circling dots). I see it a lot on the Catch-up APPS, or TENPLAY, or the SBS apps, ABC iView and a few others in our Australian TV region. 

I understand that Pluto TV relies heavily on Ads' for revenue, so I am not surprised, but it must be frustrating to get frequent issues. Is always when watching CNN? If you get a pattern to the issue, try contacting Pluto TV support.

I saw this on the Cord Cutters website:

"Pluto TV announced today a global distribution deal with LG Electronics, bringing the free streaming service to LG TV Smart TVs. Pluto TV is now available on 2020 LG Smart TV models, with rollouts on 2016-2019 models set to begin in Fall 2020."  Of course, this does NOT mean that it will be available on all models in all countries, as with many things that start in LG USA... 😊

      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.

      I have a LG TV model: 47LB652V-ZA, webOS version 1.4.0-2523 (afro-ashley). Why isn't Spotify supported for this TV if its from 2014 and it says that devices from 2013 and onwards will be supported

      Getting ARC HDMI to work permanently with Arcam SA30
      I am trying to get the HDMI ARC to work from LG OLED55B6V to Arcam SA30.
      I can do this by removing all other HDMI cables from the TV and then configuring to work. This is OK for some time, but then going back to it means going through the whole process again.
      Does anyone know of a way to set this up permanently?
