As to anyone having the issue.

I did a google and to that question it looks like yes, folk are having problems.

Now it could be a firmware thing in TV or router or an app issue. Be sure to give LG a call and while there be sure they help you be sure your TV has current firmware.

Try???

I grew up in the 90's so my generation's most common solution to computer problems other than, ALT+CONTROL+DELETE is to uninstall and re-install. Did you try that? Maybe, just maybe it will work...
LG is a quirky brand to repair... There's ghosts in the machine with many models haha.

Just my 2 cents...

same here

I have the same issue and I do not know what caused it. When i installed netflix for the first time (two years ago) I could cast it from my mobile app.
I have tried to uninstall and install it in my LG 55" and also in my iPhone7 but it did not help. I also did a factory reset to my TV but no luck.
With HBO I have the same problem as well.

I came to think maybe with the new update of Netflix TV app this will be fixed... or maybe the router makes the problem, but on the other hand YouTube works perfectly.

I will keep searching to find an answer.

fixed

I fixed this problem by restarting UPnP in the modem/router.
