we will explain how to disable HbbTV and LG Channels on your LG TV, a way to make it a little less intelligent, and so the TV goes a little faster. If you have an LG TV running webOS, when you change channels it automatically loads LovesTV, which uses HbbTV technology to combine conventional broadcasts with broadband services… but it takes a while to load, and everything slows down a bit .
In addition to this, LG also has some LG Channels, which are other extra channels through the Internet that the TV receives without needing to subscribe to any service. They are just there. These do not bother or slow down the TV, but may you just don’t want them to be there and you prefer to disable them.
Deactivate HbbTV and the LG Channels on your TV
The first thing you have to do is press the button Setting of the remote control of your LG TV. This will appear with the drawing of a toothed wheel.
This will open a menu on the left side of the television with several icons with the different sections in which the configuration options of your television are distributed. Here, go all the way down and click on the section all settingswhich will appear with a gear icon.
This will take you to a different menu with all the TV options. In it, you first have to enter the section of Canales (1) that you have in the far left column. This will display the options related to the channels, and you have to click on the option HbbTV (2) that will appear in them.
You will enter the screen where you can configure the HbbTV experience. Here, to disable it completely you have to turn off the option auto start. This way, when you change channels the HbbTV feature will not load automatically, and everything will seem to work a little faster.
Now, you have to go back to the section of Canales. Here, turn off the option LG Channels that appears at the bottom. You will only have to click on the option to deactivate it, something that will show you a warning message asking you if you are sure you want to do it.
