LG 2012 Smart TV

March 29th, 2012 by LG Blog UK

Our brand new shiny TV’s for 2012 just got a whole lot smarter, with a new sophisticated look, enhanced customisation, and a whole bunch of outstanding new features!

Your Favourite Films & Shows on Demand

Watch thousands of blockbuster films streamed directly from the internet to the TV. With LG SMART TV, you’re not restricted to one film provider – the choice is yours!

LoveFilm, BlinkBox, AceTrax & NetFlix are all available as well as BBC iPlayer, meaning you can catch up with the past 7 days of TV & radio content.

Everything is just where it is supposed to be, giving you clean and easy access to the smart features you want. The elegance is highlighted by our upgraded “cards” feature, which organises all your favorite app collections into convenient groups of eight. The new Home Dashboard has even more cards for Premium Apps, 3D World, LG Smart World, Smart Share and more.

Smart TV Home Dashboard

The Premium Apps card offers a wide-range of premium Smart TV services, starting from streaming content to social media services. It will have fully customised premium apps available for different countries around the world. Our 3D World will give you access to all different kinds of 3D video-on-demand, and LG Smart World is the App store for your CINEMA 3D Smart TV, offering tons of applications of all different genres for download with the simple click of your remote.

And there is plenty of room for customisation, letting you fill your own cards with tons of apps available on LG Smart World. Once your new cards are set, rearrange the order simply by clicking and dragging the cards in the order you’d like, and voila! All your cards are organized how you want them to be.

Once you’re done, it’s even easier to take advantage of the powerfully smart features that your LG CINEMA 3D Smart TV has to offer.

LG Smart TV Dashboard
For example, check out the LG Smart World card, which opens a whole world of apps at the LG Smart TVs application store. Everything you download from there will show up on the My Apps bar at the bottom of the screen. See below.

Smart TV Dashboard My Apps Section
The My Apps bar is the other star attraction. From there, apps can be launched with just a click, or you can access the full screen menu version of My Apps by clicking on the square icon to the left of where it says “My Apps.”

Head to the full screen menu and all your favourites will be there to manage as you want, either by putting them on the quick launch bar or deleting ones you don’t use any more.
The live TV screen view, meanwhile, keeps you in touch with all the action of your favorite shows while you surf through the world of smart apps.

Navigating directly to the My Apps bar is even possible using the My Apps button using the Magic Remote. Simple, yet powerful, and oh so convenient.

Did we mention that every new CINEMA 3D Smart TV comes with the 2012 upgraded Home Dashboard?

    Well I finally found a solution to the wifi apps crashing all the time and not working. Bought a chromecast. Cost me £30 and it’s flawless so far. Annoying though because I could have bought a £30 better TV with a bit more customer support!

      • Samah

        I see that you posted this two months ago, did you find a solution?

        • Kamran

          Solution is in the country service in the settings. When the country is changed, it disappears. Choose the right country service, it will appear again.

    • Samah

      The same thing is happening to me! Please update us if you found a solution!

    How do I delete apps I have started on my LG smart tv

  • mick

    You seem to have lost my last comment. My LG ‘smart’ (sic) TV has stopped playing movies via blinkbox – just gives me an error. The even ‘smarter’ people at blinkboix are telling me to reload the app onto the TV. But how do you reload an app on this ridiculous TV?

    I agree Michelle. LG could give us a bit more flexibility in choosing the resolution.

  • Michelle

    I have a reliable 30mbps stream, it is sufficient to watch HD on the computer, but not enough to watch it on the LG HD TV? Seems to me, the problem is not in the internet connection.
    Why is there no option of manually switching the toggle from 1080 / 720 / 480 / 360 – like there is on the computer? Why the TV decides by itself that i should watch 360p? This moment was not thought through, what do you think?

  • Anonymous

    Michelle this usually happens when your internet speed is not high enough to smoothly stream the higher resolution images.

  • N0t505martTV

    Same problem here too. Worked fine before update now all I get is 25 mins of viewing before having to close my browser and restarting.

  • Olivier

    Evelyn, I have a 47″ LG Smart 3DTV – 47LA6210 – and it is the same thing for me. The sign in icon does not appear at the top right corner. By any chance, do you happen to have an internet speed < 2 Mbps like me? That might explain it.

  • Michelle

    Hi, just bought the 2013 42″ LG Smart TV, and my problem is that youtube starts playing video in HD and then switches to PAL 320p by it’s own, and i can not figure out how to switch it back again. Seems to me, that there is no such opportunity. If it is so, it is very stupid to buy an HD TV with no option of playing HD videos from YouTube. Is there a solution to my problem, or is returning the TV back the simplest solution?

  • Evelyne


    In my 2012 LG Smart TV I cannot find the sign in icon, it is missing.
    How can I sign in?
    I only have 4 buttons:
    – Network
    – Edit
    – Back
    – Go back to tv

    Any help?
    I need to sign in to be able to read my memory stick.


  • Ali

    My LG smart TV (47LM6610) have same problem… what can I do?

  • Marco

    I am using my 47″ LG TV as a menu board for my restaurant. It is a still picture from my flash drive that doesn’t rotate. The picture turns off after 5 minutes but the other tv that has a rotating menu display works fine. I turned off the economy mode but the one with the still picture disappears after 5 minutes. The third tv I use for another menu board with still shot disappears after 5 minutes, also which tells me it’s the TV not the flash drives. Would appreciate any help.

  • Roderick McLeod

    Good day. Just bought a 47″ LG62. 2013 model. Have a BIG issue with buffering streamed movies (netflix & lovefilm) simpyl not happening. Download speeds are good and we can watch these on other TV’s and devices. This is a real problem, film sound stops after 3 minutes or pictures freeze/ go black.

    Any solutions or work arounds? I WILL send the TV back if none forthcoming

  • laughingman

    I own a lg 42lm660s “Smart” TV. I have the problem that the dsl speed over tv is much too slow. I have an 50000 kB/s DSLconnection BUT when using the TV LAN or WLAN I get a max speed of 8000 kB/s down. Because of that all apps using www are not working properly (maxdome/youtube,etc.) Also all www sites are loading too slow. Are there any solutions? Sorry for the bad typing I used the magic remote…

  • Mike T

    ‘Smart’ tv? It’s an embarrassment. ‘Out of memory’ after one button press on the browser and seemingly no way of clearing it (yes, I’ve tried all the obvious stuff). I take some solace from 11,000 people being aware of my experience through my blog and what I’ve tweeted about it. LG, it’s simply not good enough.

  • Søren

    Hi LG arter the recent software Update i have the same issue, when starting youtube via the browser, the browser Crashes and “out of memory” is printed i a prompt window
