Bandwidth Requirements

Although the minimum required bandwidth to use LG Smart TV is 1.5Mbps, it is recommended that at least 3.0Mbps be available (and 5.0 for HD content). Not sure how much bandwidth you have? Your best bet is to check with your internet service provider (ISP) and request more if you need to increase it.
