It's been noted on various forums that some LG TV owners can change the country code through the ez adjust service menu.

For example:

Hulu Plus or Netflix on overseas LG webOS TV

It appears the instructions covered in the link above are for webos 2.0 versions.

Changing country code has allowed many users to download apps not available in your own country.


A small amount of forums state that some LG TV owners cannot change the country code through the ez adjust service menu.

For example:

LG WebOS TV's cannot change region to get Netflix etc? - Page 2


Some of those owners report a different menu, most likely those users NOT using webos 2 and are using webos 1.0 or webos 1.5

In Australia on my TV I see -

7. Country Group
Country Group Code 19
Country Group AJ
Country --

8. Area option
Area code 263
Wi-fi Frequency 7
Lang Gr. ALL
Teletext Lang Gr. W_EU
I II Save On
HDEV Off
MONO Off
Location 0
Isolator 0


I found that a South African user posted that they had a similar menu:
LG WebOS TV's cannot change region to get Netflix etc? - Page 2


Comparison between Australian and South African users posting about the issue -


Area Option

Area Code -

South Africa: 259
Australia: 263

Wi-fi frequency -

South Africa: 3
Australia: 7


I suspect that it is possible to change the country and thereby download apps from another country.
I think the USA Area code is 02.

Anyone figured out how?

Perhaps posting up your Country Group Code and Area Code (IF you have webos 1.x) may be a step towards this process.


A Russian user also with this question.

Perhaps country can be changed via the in start menu....


Looks like this user changed his via in_start, but has issues changing it more than once:
