Question

It's been at least a couple years now,  but I still can't get to the Channel Plus channels since our apartment building migrated from Xfinity to RCN internet. All other apps and internet work just fine. I thought I would try again to see if anyone has had a similiar experience and found a solution. One note: live streaming news stations like NBC seem to work okay but with most channels I eventually get message that 'I cant connect to Channel Plus at this time" or something like that.

@Ed in Chicago As these are Internet steeaming services, it may be that the new ISP does not have a good DNS server to resolve Content Delivery Networks  (CDN) well enough. If you go to your Network settings on your TV, and go to advanced settings, find DNS, and instead of "Auto" that will use your your router or ISP settings,  set it to the well-known (and very stable) public Google DNS service of 8.8.8.8 (Note that it is an IP address, so NO period at the end of that string).

Power cycle your TV (unplug, NOT just standby) and retest your issue. If it still does not get that sorted out,  compare notes with your neighbours, to see if they had any different workarounds for the issue.

Thanks for the suggestion. I did try changing the DNS as you said but the result is the same.  At least it was something worth trying. Channel Plus is a nice little feature but hardly something I want to spend a lot of time trying to resolve, or jeopardize other things on this tv/cable/isp. Every other app and feature works fine so I will just leave it at that. Thanks again. (My tv may also be a really early smart tv, so maybe there are some limitations.)

      i have a uj630v and it randomly pops up with restarting app to free up memory, any when there will be a fix for this other than having to reset the tv as its a real pain

      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

      I have a problem updating or installing amazon prime video app. When hitting the update button (after several factory resets) it simply says "Application has not been installed. Try again" after it stops.
      This possibly happened due to a cancelled update a week ago.
      Any ideas how to fix this? Factory reset doesn't work. App won't run without update, and update won't run.
