New browser downgrade?


Recommended Posts

IS there a way to downgrade the last browser? It just broke everything, there is no real full screen, some websites dont show correctly, it has issues trying to reproduce 4k videos... it is just bad

My TV is a 49UM7100PSA I was very happy with it until this upgrade and I dont want to buy a roku or fire stick whatever to solve it.

I found something that helps, reset TV to factory settings, before that write down your region and backup programs to usb, then after restoring, set region and restore programs, new browser is gone, but every time you run browser it  asks for update and you have to press launch. I found it in a thread and also users suggested to watch movies for free in watchsomuch.tv which was a great site and is fully compatible with WebOS browser. If pay you can watch outstanding 4K qualities on LG OLED

Usually, something that is broken this badly gets fixed quickly.  We can only hope for a reversion to the previous browser (or something very similar with at least equal funtionality) while they try to straighten this mess out.

I don't wish for anybody to get fired over this -- but LG needs to make sure this can never happen again.

But if it turns out this crippling of the browser was done on purpose, in pursuit of some objective dreamed up in the marketing department, then maybe some heads SHOULD roll.

      My Smart TV LGwebOS TV OLED55 B8PLA with software version 05.50.15
      It is impossible to install some apps for regional TV channels because the browser is incompatible. How do I update the browser or how do I install a different browser on my TV ? Downloading a file is not supported.  Automatic update is active. Thanks in advance.

      Hello
      When I try to watch replay or live TV from Belgian casts in the browser I have error messages:
      - for Auvio (RTBF) it is purely incompatible
      - for RTLPlay , the message says that the browser version is too old and has to be updated.
      But...
      It is impossible to install alternative browser on LG smart TV, or to update the LG one.
      WebOS is not really a good idea, or at least it should be more "open" for the apps that are not proposed or updated.
      I know it is possible to share from other machines (tablet, phone or computer) but I want to use my TV "alone" too!
      Do you have a solution (other then buying a chromecast or equivalent device?)
      Thank you
