Has anyone noticed the significant differences in available content if you
contrast these inbuilt apps with YouTube or iView running in a browser? I
assume that in my case my LG TV is funneling all the traffic through South
Korean servers and doing some sort of filtering. I get one view of content
(not much content) from the apps, another view of the same site via the
TV's web browser (usually a bit more content) and lots more content if I
use a browser running on an odroid connected to the TV. This seems to apply
at least to YouTube, iView and the SBS viewing apps.
