Missing Broadcast Service Provider


Absenm

Question

First, I have search other forums and documentation.  Haven’t found a solution.

I am not asking about an AT&T TV app.  I know there is not one at this time. I’m talking about the service provider that is specified in webOS.  This is what is used by Lists and Guide to show current broadcast television.   The closest service provider listed is AT&T U-verse, which is not AT&T TV.  Btw AT&T TV Now is also not on the list but also is not AT&T TV either.  Without the correct service provider I get wildly incorrect broadcast information.  Is there a work around or any plans to add AT&T TV to the broadcaster list.  Again, I am not talking about an app.  I am talking about the broadcaster list.

Thank you.

@Absenm I assume you are asking about OTA (Over-the-Air) regular Live TV from your antenna, and NOT a cable TV provision? If so, this will vary from country to country, and then area within that country, for large countries like USA, Australia etc. It would be useful to know what LG model you are asking about, what country and area you are using it in, and if the TV was ever initally used in another area or country, as these are set for the country initially used in, as delivered to the dealer.

No-one other than LG software developers can "see" inside the firmware, to glean the internal infomation about CDN servers used for On Demand stuff, or what "lists" are there for triggers to country codes usage and providers.

If you can give examples of the incorrect Broadcast Providers Information you are seeing, others on here MAY have experience of this, and be able to offer more help.

Otherwise, try raising your concerns with LG directly, in your country, giving them as much detail as possible to work with.

Well, the tv is LG 50UN7300PUF and only in the USA, never used elsewhere.  
 

AT&T TV is AT&T’s replacement for AT&T U-verse.  It is not over the air.  It is just like cable, but streaming in real time over the internet. It comes with a set top box, or you can use a mobile device,  Real-time like charter, and direct, and dish.  All the channels like A&E and weather channel and TBS and local CBS shown in real-time just like cable.  It’s only been active for a year and a half, but AT&T is pushing all its TV broadcasting services that direction.  AT&T is putting all its TV broadcasting services in the AT&T TV basket.  They are no longer even accepting new subscribers to U-verse and I think also the NOW services.  The EPG providers already have the data for AT&T TV.

@Absenm
So, you are running the AT&T service via an external box, fed via your home internet, then to the TV via an HDMI cable from that box, yes? If that is correct, then what has it got to do with the LG TV or the WebOS?  It does rather sound like you need to reach out to AT&T with the issue.

The LG and WebOS when providing a listing of broadcast service providers does not list AT&T TV as an option.  Samsung smart TVs don’t have a problem recognizing AT&T TV as a service provider.  It think WebOS simply is overlooking a relatively new service. I think AT&T TV is being viewed as an on demand service like HBO Max or Discovery+ Instead of a live Tv service. But I do have a direct message to LG about the issue.  I’ll let you know if I find out anything.

@Absenm OK, it is clearer to me now: AT&T U-verse was with the box, but has now stopped, and been replaced with the AT&T TV as an on-demand APP,  but you have not yet got the APP on the LG TV, correct?

You might get more mileage out of contacting AT&T to ask when the TV app will be rolled out to LG TV's and when. I suspect it will be to the newer flagship ones first, but they should be in a position to tell you.

      Need to check My OTT App memory management and consumption on the app launch itself.

      Hi can someone help please. 
      I purchased this TV as I was assured that I could move TV stations in whichever order I wished. For example, channel 23 can be moved to channel 1. 
      Under edit all programmes, it only gives me 2 options. Lock/unlock and skip/restore. 
      Software has the latest updates. It's under Antenna DTV. 
      Not sure what else to try.
      Thanks!

      The LG Content Store is missing from my smart TV so I can’t add any apps. It’s an older smart TV and the ribbon does not look like the newer models. Is it hidden somewhere?

      With Six Wheels and Independent Suspension, LG’s Latest Autonomous Serving Robot
      Offers Enhanced Service Delivery in Food Retail Environments

      SEOUL, July 19, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) has unveiled its newest LG CLOi ServeBot (model LDLTR30), a smart service robot convenient for places where service is needed, including restaurants. Boasting a quick and stable autonomous driving system that can handle various types of flooring, and an upgraded design with enhanced features, LG CLOi ServeBot ensures reliable service delivery. The new model also has a guide function for helping customers to find their way around, freeing up staff to spend more time on management and administrative duties.
      First launched in early 2020, LG CLOi ServeBot is designed to be deployed in public spaces such as restaurants, hospitals and office buildings to assist humans without human-to-human interaction, and is optimized for in-person customer service. The latest version offers enhanced driving performance with 6 wheels and independent suspension, allowing for stable operation on different kinds of flooring, including carpet and braille blocks. It also has a 3D camera and a light detection and ranging (LiDAR) sensor. This enables the CLOi ServeBot to securely transport beverages and meals, including soups and noodles, even when travelling over surfaces with a slope of up to 5 millimeters (0.2 inches). Additionally, this advanced technology lets the CLOi ServeBot navigate obstacles smoothly, ensuring that none of its valuable “cargo” is upset.
      The new LG CLOi ServeBot also delivers increased storage capacity and flexibility. Its 4 easy-to-access shelves (21 x 17 inches) – including one that can be used as main drawer – can collectively manage a load of up to 40 kilograms (88 pounds). The upgraded LG CLOi ServeBot offers further convenience with its upper pockets and cup holders, and features an additional bottom drawer that can be used for storing items such as napkins and utensils. For extra versatility, the LG CLOi ServeBot’s shelves are detachable and can be adjusted up or down within a range of 2.8 inches.
      LG’s newest CLOi ServeBot provides smarter service thanks to its large 10.1-inch display and built-in content management system. Operators can adapt the autonomous robot for a specific use scenario by choosing an appropriate facial expression and by displaying videos, images or text. As such, LG CLOi ServeBot can communicate relevant information to customers, such as menu recommendations or in-store promotions, and also advertise services from partner companies. Additionally, LG CLOi ServeBot can be used for entertainment purposes, such as displaying customized content for special events and celebrations. What’s more, LG’s new service robots communicate with each other to coordinate their movements; facilitating smooth, efficient operation in food retail environments.
      “LG CLOi ServeBot is a reliable partner capable of efficiently carrying out various service delivery tasks, from serving and guiding customers to providing engaging entertainment and useful information,” said Roh Kyu-chan, vice president and head of the robot business division of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “Leveraging LG’s autonomous robotic technology, we will continue to consistently deliver new and exciting experiences that bring greater value to our customers.”
      LG’s new CLOi ServeBot is currently available in the United States and Japan, with plans for a global rollout in the future.

      According to LG, nothing is more important than providing outstanding customer experiences through its advanced products and services. Driven by its core value of always delivering an ‘Uncompromising Customer Experience,’ LG prioritizes the creation of first-class customer experiences above all else.

      The company strives to deliver exceptional quality at every stage of the product life cycle, from initial product planning and providing after-sales service to the release of a new model.
      With this in mind, LG CEO William Cho recently took the time to inspect a service site before Korea’s peak summer season hits.

      On June 16, the CEO visited the company’s service center in Hongdae – a vibrant, youthful district of Seoul – to look into how preparations for its after-sales service peak season, from June to August, were going.
      He first examined the status of securing special support personnel in areas where service requests are concentrated, building a system that enables service managers in neighboring areas to provide immediate support so that customers don’t have to wait long at a time when the heat is almost unbearable.
      The CEO also reviewed the manuals used in the event of natural disasters, such as a heat wave or torrential rain. And as more rain is forecasted this summer, the system has been reorganized to provide immediate recovery support during a disastrous flooding event.
      CEO Cho then went on home appliance repair calls related to LG’s refrigerators or ACs, which allowed him to listen to stories and feedback from customers in their own homes.
      “My heart goes out to customers worried about the recent hot and humid weather,” said CEO Cho. “We will continue to do everything we can to respond to and address customer inconveniences on time without delays.”
      The company has made continuous efforts to make summer as cool and enjoyable as possible. For instance, LG has been conducting AC pre-inspections since March, which involves a service engineer visiting the customer’s home to check the appliance’s performance free of charge. In fact, the company has already made three times more pre-inspections of its ACs than last year.
      CEO Cho has also talked directly with service managers to better understand the factors that increase their sense of accomplishment and the difficulties they have felt in the field, and to brainstorm new ideas for providing faster, more efficient services. “Symbolic of LG’s customer service, service managers play the most important role in bringing a smile to customers as the real faces of our company,” mentioned Mr. Cho, who continued by reiterating the company’s commitment to discovering various ways to make life good for customers.

      The company has long prioritized providing quality after-sales services. Since 2002, LG held an internal event called the ‘Service Olympics,’ which challenged service managers to put their service capabilities to the test and share their know-how with other service workers so that every possible appliance issue can be handled swiftly going forward.

      In March, CEO Cho visited Hi-Teleservice, an LG subsidiary specializing in customer service, to meet customer counseling consultants. Recognizing that a better working environment for customer service pros can lead to excellent customer experiences, he encouraged the introduction of a “balanced work system” that allows them to work from home three weeks per month, as well as activities promoting effective communication in the workplace.
      The company plans to continue conducting on-site service inspections by executives to best reflect customer feedback into its service policies. “True customer experience innovation begins with listening to the customer and is only complete when that customer is left smiling with satisfaction,” said CEO Cho.
