LG wants high margin stores like Best Buy to carry their TVs so people can go somewhere and see them. They also want to sell as many TVs as possible so they also want the lower margin internet sales to move as many sets as possible.
Problem is that the high margin stores get pissed off when people see others selling the same TV for so much cheaper then they can, so LG tries to keep the low margin volume sales going while placating the high margin stores. This unauthorized list is their attempt to do exactly that.
It says there may be problems with sets bought from these high volume low margin sources but really does not limit service to these sets. It is something to take to Best Buy etc, and say see we support you, and we are cracking down on those low margin fly by nighters. So far it appears to be working.
Also as far as supply, I ordered my set from Ielectra 2/15 it was delivered 2/22 and it was manufactured January 2017. I received it within one month of manufacture, Ielectra's supply seems to be pretty direct to me.
