Channel Plus


Ed in Chicago

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.)

      Advancing Business Portfolio with Greater Focus on Digital Transformation   

      SEOUL, Nov. 25, 2021 — LG Electronics (LG) today announced that William Cho, its Chief Strategy Officer, will also take on the responsibility of Chief Executive Officer effective December 1. LG’s top strategist since 2019, Mr. Cho was responsible for establishing LG’s Business Incubation Center and fostering new businesses opportunities in the form of in-house ventures as well as startup partners during his six-year tenure as president of LG North America.
      Having joined Goldstar in 1987 and spending four years in LG’s overseas office in Germany, Mr. Cho has a storied career including roles as president of LG Canada, Australia and the United States. A graduate of Pusan University, Mr. Cho received his master’s degree in business from Yonsei University in Seoul.
      Other notable changes include the appointment of Kim Byoung-hoon as Chief Technology Officer. Currently serving as the head of the Future Technology Center, Dr. Kim is being promoted to executive vice president and will simultaneously assume the roles of Chief Technology Officer as well as the new Information and Communication Technology leadership position.
      Jang Ik-hwan, a 31-year veteran of LG, is being promoted from SVP to EVP and will assume the top position at the Business Solutions Company after successfully growing the IT business portfolio to make LG one of the fastest-growing brands in the notebook, laptop and monitor business. SVP Eun Seok-hyun has been tapped to lead the Vehicle component Solutions Company as its third and newest president. Mr. Eun was previously responsible for growing the smart business division under the same company.
      Going forward, the new leadership team will accelerate changes focusing even more on customer value in pursuit of growth with each business unit assuming greater responsibility. Toward this end, LG will reorganize its Customer Satisfaction Management Center into the new Customer Value Innovation Office with oversight by the CSO. The role of the CVIO will be to more effectively identify and incorporate customer feedback and pain points into the product planning, development and sales processes. In addition, the Customer Experience Innovation Department under the Home Appliances and Home Entertainment Companies will be upgraded to Customer Experience Innovation Division.
      Also, to discover potential growth engines and expedite future innovations, the M&A department under the umbrella of the Chief Strategy Office will be elevated to division level for more resources. Similarly, to increase its focus on future trends and customer needs, LG’s Life Soft Research (LSR) department will be promoted to Life Soft Research Lab to increase its influence within the Design Management Center. And to speed up its digital transformation process related to customer experience, LG will elevate the AI Big Data department to division level under the watchful eye of the new Chief Data Office (CDO).
      All appointments are effective Dec. 1 with promotions going into effect on the first day of the new year.
