No HBO Max on LG HU810PW-EU Laser CineBeam?


Recommended Posts

I bought the LG HU810PW european version projector back in October '21. The projector comes with webOS 3.0, but in the website is advertised with webOS 5.0. I tried to manually update webOS, but it says there are no updates availables. HBO Max it's not available with webOS 3.0. Anyone knows what's going on? Can I really update to webOS 5.0 or download HBO Max somehow? Thanks in advance.

Saddly, not. Since we bought the projector back in October 2021, webOS 3 has not been updated (hello LG??) and the apps store does not include HBO Max. This is not acceptable coming from a 3000$ projector from a brand like LG. At the end, we ended buying an Apple TV 4K, a much better (but pricey) experience.
