Asked by: mikehasaquestion
Netflix is not listed as a preinstalled app on the LG CineBeam Ultra Short Throw Laser Smart Home Theater Projector, Model # HF85LA. The projector features an LG Content Store (App Store) feature that allows you to search for additional compatible apps that can be downloaded and installed on the projector. The Netflix app can be found in the LG Content Store, but if it does not show in the search for it on the projector, then it is not compatible with the projector. The smallest screen that the projector can project is a 90" screen...^IFV

Does this model support YouTube tv?
Does it support HBO go?
Asked by: Lauer2001
The YouTube TV app does not come preloaded on the LG CineBeam Ultra Short Throw Laser Smart Home Theater Projector, Model # HF85LA. Additional compatible apps can be downloaded from the LG Content Store (App Store) and installed on the projector by launching the LG Content Store feature from the projector's home screen. The YouTube TV app is a compatible app for our TVs, but if you do a search for it on the projector and it does not appear in the search that would mean it is not compatible with the projector. The HBO Go app is not available for download in the LG Content Store the Hulu app is available and it will give you access live HBO programming as well as on-demand access to HBO shows and movies using the Hulu or HBO Now app...^IFV
