Channel 5 shows this when it is running on disaster recovery. You may have heard that there was a fire at the company that does playout for many UK channels. Channel 4 has had it worst and has fallen off air several times, and it's music channels (Box etc) are simulcasting a sustaining service. Channel 5 isn't as badly hit, but it is still on backup and that's what the square tells us.

As for what's happened, depending on what rumour you believe, either the sprinklers fried a server or three, or the fire systems created a vacuum to put out the fire and that created an electromagnetic pulse which fried a bunch of equipment. Either way, there's no end it sight yet and Red Bee (the playout company) aren't giving any dates for a fix.

      The new WebOS Home makes the TV feels more gadget-ty or app-y while the old home feels more like an appliance. Is there a way to get back to the old home view?

      LG Marks Next Major Phase of Its CTV Advertising Business

      SEOUL, Sep. 15, 2022 – LG Electronics (LG) today announced a rollout of LG Ads Solutions proprietary automatic content recognition (ACR) technology across LG TVs globally, beginning this September. The rollout will replace legacy technology and put the new ACR solution on millions of smart TVs across 27 countries in Europe, Africa, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Australia.
      The new ACR provided by LG Ads Solutions is already active on LG smart TVs in the U.S. and with the rollout, LG CTV data will be available exclusively through LG Ads Solutions.
      “Since the LG Ads Solutions launch last May, the team has created tremendous momentum for the business globally,” said Chris Jo, Senior Vice President and Head of Platform Business at LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. “This rollout of the new ACR is another great milestone that demonstrates its commitment to excellence, and dedication to bringing the best possible advertising solutions to brands and agencies around the world.”
      CEO Raghu Kodige said, “This rollout marks the next major phase of our global CTV advertising business with LG Ads Solutions. It is a highly significant moment for brands across four continents, who increasingly need to reach cord-cutters and light TV viewers who have migrated to OTT services, and to understand incremental reach over traditional linear TV services. Now with LG Ads Solutions, brands globally can plan, activate and measure CTV advertising using the industry’s best ACR data set to help guarantee campaign success.”
      The ACR data, which is in compliance with all global and regional consumer data privacy regulations, helps brands understand, in an anonymized fashion, how frequent certain TV ads were aired in any given household. For brands, this means it can increase frequency levels for underexposed households, cap frequency for overexposed households, win over households that are exposed to competitors’ ads, and more. Of major importance, it informs brands and agencies which households they are missing completely due to cord-cutting.
      The data can also be used to measure the effectiveness of ads, such as if an ad drove viewers to a particular TV show or movie, or if an ad led to the download or registration of an OTT app or service.
      LG Ads Solutions already powers CTV campaigns in over 40 countries globally. Now, brands in any country covered by the ACR rollout can immediately begin working with LG Ads Solutions to understand TV audience viewership in their country at a granular level, in order to pinpoint audience segments and optimize reach, frequency and ad effectiveness across linear and streaming television.

      I'm not sure what changed (maybe my kid playing with the remote), but now when I press the TV button on my remote, I am taken to the Life's Good Hub instead of antenna TV. I have to wait for it to load and then exit the app. I never installed this app. I have reset my TV to factory settings and infuriatingly still can't get to antenna TV by pressing TV.
      Can I remove the Life's Good Hub somehow or reprogram what the button ony remote does?

      Summer picnics and trips to the beach are great seasonal activities, but nothing beats coming back to the cool comforts of home during the hottest days of the year. With LG’s innovative smart home technology, you can make your home cool, enjoyable and convenient. Here are some quick tips and tricks for living your best summer life at home.
      Turn Your Bedroom into the Ultimate Summer Escape

      What would we do without our trustworthy, wall-mounted air conditioner saving us from the hot, sleepless nights of summer? But although keeping your air conditioner running through the night may help you sleep better, it doesn’t bode well for your energy bills. With the LG ThinQ app’s smart energy monitoring feature, you gain instant access to monthly usage insights for every connected LG appliance, which makes sure you stay on top of your energy consumption and all that’s left to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the coolness of home.
      Save Time and Stress in the Laundry Room

      Summertime can often mean more laundry as families spend more time outside in the sun, making laundry day more tedious. With the right tools, you can spend less time washing and more time enjoying the summer season. Today, there are a variety of innovative washers and dryers that take the guesswork out of laundry day. Washers with AI DD technology from LG, for instance, help save time and effort by automatically determining the best cycle after measuring your fabric’s weight and softness. What’s more, the LG ThinQ app provides a wide range of downloadable washing courses for every garment – from light cotton sundresses to polyester swimsuits.
      Prep Your Kitchen for Summer Entertaining

      Keeping all your stored ingredients and produce fresh may be challenging during the sweltering summer, but it really doesn’t have to be with the LG ThinQ app’s storage date alert. Make a note of your perishable items’ expected storage date on the LG Smart Refrigerator’s “Food Manager” feature, and the LG ThinQ app will remind you when you’re entering the now or never territory. It’s also great to know that the smart energy monitoring feature you use for your LG air conditioner also works for your fridge, so you won’t be overworking the appliance when you need it most.

      Craving for a marvelously cold popsicle to soothe the heat? Enjoying an icy treat straight out of the fridge is so much faster and easier with the help of the Express Freeze feature, which increases your refrigerator’s ice-making and freezing functions. It’s possible to activate the feature from anywhere in your home, since it’s available both from your refrigerator panel and the LG ThinQ app.

      A sunny summer “stay-cation” afternoon at home should come with endless naps, eating ice cream in front of the TV and reading a good book in cool, comfortable air, all made possible with smart home appliances.

      Hello. I am from Bangladesh. I have an LG  television (LG UP7550 43'' UHD 4K TV). I want to play movies with Bengali Subtitle. My TV isn't showing the Bengali subtitle file (srt or ass) though I have renamed it as the same name as the name of the movie and kept it in the same folder. How can I get rid of the problem? Do I need to use any special player for this purpose? Or is it completely impossible to watch movies with Bengali Sub?
