Hello, and sorry you're having problems. My name is ***** ***** I am a different tech. According to LG, the TV should come equipped with Netflix,Hulu,Vudu,CinemaNow, and Yo stock. Can you tell me if all of the others (besides Hulu) are there?

Are you still with me here?

TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago

Hmm, that's strange that the rest are not showing up. Please try scrolling left or right on the App screen and see if the rest of the apps are on another screen- are you able to try that?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago

I actually just checked and the LA6400 shows Hulu, but the GA6400 model (discontinued) does not. However there is an arrow (or should be) on the right side of your screen when you are on the APP screen. Can you see that and can you slide over to the next screen using the Arrow right, or the Magic remote?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago

Let me know, as it's possible this TV uses the older APP platform. If so- no worries, I do have a workaround. I just need to know what you see on the other screen for apps.

Cannot scroll
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago

Are you able to see a white arrow on the right of your screen when you're on the APP section?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago

Press SMART on the Magic remote please then let me know what you see on the screen.

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago

You may need to shake the remote left to right to wake it up.

TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago

Okay, and still no Hulu I presume. Sorry about that, this model is the older version and does not support Hulu- the newer LG's do. What you would need in order to get Hulu on this set would be an external box that will expand the app platform- like Roku. It will plug into the set using an HDMI cable, and you can then stream Hulu from that device onto the TV. The link below is to the device I'm referring to:

https://www.roku.com/products/roku-2

Once you have this setup, then you would add the Hulu channel at the following link:

https://channelstore.roku.com/details/2285/hulu

If you need further assistance let me know. Please do not forget to click the 5 STAR RATING, at the top of the page for my efforts. It is my livelihood and you can follow up at any time if needed.

Can you please make her my money is refunded since there was no resolution
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago

I don't have anything to do with refunds or billing. You asked how to get Hulu on the TV and I provided that solution to you above. I'm not sure what else you were looking for?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago

I'm an independent tech working of my own time to help you, in the hopes of a rating which pays me a portion of your deposit for my time. You asked how to get Hulu on your TV- and we searched to find that it's not a "native" app on this model. So I provided you a workaround. A Roku box is around $50 and will give you Hulu as well as many other apps on your LG. Other than that, if you're saying you simply don't want to pay me for my efforts, then you would need to contact customer service from the home page- as I am not a site employee or billing agent.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I understand what you are saying. If you will scroll back through your answers you said "you have no solution for me". Yes, you suggested I just go out and buy a Roko kit with is also around 50.00 and I've just flushed down the drain 50+ dollars on this service.
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago

I SURELY never said I have no solution for you. If you could scroll up to where I said that, and point to where that is stated by myself (not Mike G.), then I will take a look. If you simply do not want to pay for my answer or my time- then contact customer service via the home page- not by replying here. Thank you.
