@Ken Gendron It is well known that LG (and other manufacturers) rarely make updates to the in-built browsers in older TV models.  The problem is that they cannot update them to cover modern technology, when that technology has FAR surpassed the fixed harware in the TV (chip-sets, memory, CPU power etc), especially in an item that is over 5 years old.

What functions or web-sites do you need to use on the TV, that you cannot use properly with a Laptop or PC, or iPAD?

Well that helped me quite a bit, so what should I do? Throw it in the Trash? 😆 Lol. I grew up in the 60s Tin foil on the rabbit ears and pliers on top of the set. TVs had to last a minimum 10 yrs.

Ya know I don't even own a desktop or laptop. Because About 5 yrs ago I bought a higher.  end Motorola E5 play. Cost me almost $500. I actually fell so in love with it. One day was cleaning said what do I need these "Old Dinosaurs" for?

So I threw them in the trash. Was before I learned Android and Laptops/Desktops are NOT comparable. Lol 😂 which is why I'm so angry with my TV cause now can't use the Browser to full capacity. Am gonna have to "Bite that Bullet" sooner or later. But my cellphone is almost a Dinosaur also. But it is REALLY lightning Fast. So here's a trivia Question for you.. What were the pliers on top of the TV set used for?????

Anyone out there know???

Although I appreciate the timely response.

Thank you

      Hello,
      I got a 55UJ6519-ZA and wanted to install the Discoveryplus app on it, but it is not available in the content store. 
      I found that version webOS 4.0 (or higher) is required for Discoveryplus, but my TV is running version 3.9.0-62907
       
      Any chance the 55UJ6519-ZA will get an webOS-update to 4.0?

      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?
