Doesn't support flash and crackle

Amazon Customer, Amazon
20 May 2014
  • Summary: It was 4 stars before Android 4.2.2 update. I used to watch crackle, cricket and some wbesites with flash content. After 4.2.2 update they removed flash and crackle support which made it completely unusable TV for me. LG, please bring back flash support on this TV along with crackle support. Otherwise it's a dummy/old fashioned TV except playing youtube videos from mobile (air play style) or from the TV. Though it is android, it doesn't support many apps.

Lack of flash support

Ram, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
20 May 2014
  • Summary: I was using this TV to watch live TV on websites with flash support and watch movies on crackle. But an update to this TV with android 4.2 made the TV completely useless and i can't revert it back. Update removed flash support and crackle, which made this TV obsolete for me. Lack of Flash, crackle application, Direct DLNA Support to stream from pc or mobile, very less google apps support made this tv not much useful. on the positive side display and 3d tv is good.

Not ready for prime time

  • Summary: My 55 inch had problems soon after purchase, the remote had to be synched regularly and the remote had to be replaced after six months. Then a message banner popped up on the bottom of the screen saying internet not connected although it was, this continued every 20 seconds to a minute.

Latest Android 4.2.2 update has no Flash support

Dave, Amazon
27 January 2014
  • Summary: The latest Android (4.2.2) update does not support Flash video. There still is a lot of Flash video out on the web and keep in mind that this thing can't play it. Also, it appears that some websites block Google TV's. I've found I can play the exact same video smoothly on my desktop or laptop but will be blocked or have very slow/jerky playback when trying to play on my LG 47G2 Google TV (over the exact same network and router).
