I am from India and have recently purchased a LG 47LV500 LED Smart TV. I was wondering if its possible to download and install the US firmware on the TV to get the US based apps. I am primarily interested in the amazon Instant video streaming app for amazon prime subscribers. I know netflix applies an IP based restriction, but am not sure about amazon and would like to try it out.

Has anyone tried installing the US firmware on a non US smart TV?

Bump.

I just an LG LM6700 and I'm wondering the same thing. In the Smart TV country setting I get only Asian countries and Australia.

Bump!

I have an LG 42LA6200 since 2013. Recently I moved to the US and brought my TV here. I am a Prime subscriber and want to watch Amazon Instant Video, but I can't find it in Premium apps. Does someone know a way to change the service country to USA in settings or to manually install the Amazon Instant Video app somehow?
