And as everyone's internet connection varies, some routers have firewalls and sorry to get technical here, some ISP's choice of DNS does not have all the entries, this area needs a reboot.
Changing make may not help. Forgetting the Smart TV might help and focus on good picture quality (PQ.)
Wish I had better news but I wonder if the makers thought it through. Expecting TV owners to download to USB sticks? Seriously needs a reboot.
For the second time since we bought this TV in early November it is telling us it needs a software update, but it won't load more than 3% of the update. Previously I was able to get the update on my PC and use a thumb drive to put it onto the TV, but this time I can't find the update online. LG tells me they'll have to send a technician to reset the TV. We're so disappointed with this TV that we will most likely return it and get a different brand. Anyone else having these issues?
