LG channels being interrupted by commercials


Recommended Posts

I watch a conservative news channel, channel 138, newsmax, and in the middle of a story commercials pop up and interrupt the story.

 

I've turned off LG channels plus, and add customization, and that has done no good.  I canceled my cable, and signed up with Hulu to avoid the commercials. Now on top of regular TV commercials LG inserts its own garbage.

 

I also understand Samsung, and Sony are doing the same thing. My assumption is whoever the IPTV provider is, they are the ones inserting the commercials, and the major TV brands use the same service for all of the TV brands.

 

This is unacceptable. My future plan is to not buy one of these major branded TVs.  It's not bad enough that we are inundated with commercials on cable, and network TV, now there are inserting commercials on an IP stream.

 

Disgruntled TV owner, thanks for listening.

      All my channels have gone. 
      Firstly it started with a bad broken image and sound in a few changes. Then some disappeared. 
      I went to do a automatic tuning to see if I could get them back.
      Eventually instead of recovering the missing ones I lost all channels.
      I have retuning, replugging and even reseting the TV and nothing....
      I phoned LG and they did remotely everything I did do, and no results.
      They told I need to repair my TV.
      How is that possible? One day all normal and then all gone.....
      Please can any one help me ???
       
      Thanks

      Hi. I need advise with DTV channels. I have sort cca 34 channels on my favorite group. When switching channels with Up/Down button on remote, sometimes the TV doesn't switch them in order. For example, 1,2,3,4,5 and then skip again to 1. After few seconds, maybe 1,2 minutes switch them in order and all. Sometimes TV delete some channels from favorite group. DTV via CI+ Neotion CAM
      The second problem is with recording. Program record with Live Playback, when play back the player skip and omit. I use Kingston 1TB SSD disc. Previously WD Elements 500GB HDD.

      I have been in hi end AV technology for years and I have purchased a ThinQ "smart" TV. After finally finding a way to stop the ridiculous loud static start up now I want to find a way to have the TV start at an installed app (Google TV etc.) instead of the unused antenna or HDMI input. It seem this would be the default if not just an option on a smart TV when actually using installed apps. Have I been missing something or is this some bizarre epic fail? 
       
      Thanks
