With the power of ULED technologies, the Hisense 55U8GQTUK sets the standards for others to follow.

TV quality maximised by ULED
The 55U8QGTUK uses a range of high-end technologies to deliver class-leading picture quality. Quantum Dot Colour gets closer to the original than ever, with over a billion true-to-life colours. 100Hz panel refresh makes for the smoothest motion – while keeping the detail crystal-clear. Full Array Local Dimming enhances this Hisense 55 inch TV to deliver outstanding contrast.

Ultra HD Premium – for ultimate picture quality
The top spec panel used in the Hisense 55U8GQTUK meets the highest standards for clarity – Ultra HD Premium. Full Array Local Dimming features 90, independently controlled dimming zones for astonishing contrast levels and outstanding picture realism.

See the picture exactly as originally intended, with Filmmaker Mode
Filmmaker Mode makes the best of any movie. Designed in collaboration with filmmakers and studios, Filmmaker Mode lets you experience the cinematic vision, exactly as the director intended. Overriding the TV’s own motion and picture processing, Filmmaker Mode presents the correct aspect ratio, colour and frame rate – just as the filmmakers intended.

IMAX Enhanced
Nothing beats the big screen thrill of IMAX and now, thanks to IMAX enhanced, you can enjoy the power of IMAX on your TV, too. Used with IMAX certified 4K HDR content, IMAX Enhanced uses their proprietary digital remastering technology (DMR) to deliver ultra-vivid images.

Dolby Vision IQ – ultimate detail
Dolby Vision IQ takes Dolby Vision to the next level, making it the ultimate HDR-type picture processor. Dolby Vision IQ version uses data within the signal and light sensors inside the TV to adjust the picture quality for the best contrast. This improves the picture’s brightness, without ‘washing out’ the depth. You get a consistent picture quality, however light or dark your room is. Whether you’re watching a brightly lit sports event or moody movie, Dolby Vision IQ adjusts to suit.

Multi-format HDR support for a stunning picture from all sources
As well as Dolby Vision and Vision IQ, this Hisense 55” TV also offers multi-format HDR – including HDR10+. HDR10+ offers scene-by-scene HDR mastering for the truest, most accurate HDR picture technology. Each scene is optimised, meaning the maximum amount of detail is shown – even in the brightest or darkest moments.

Dolby Atmos compatible sound
Dolby Atmos offers a big step forward in immersive sound. With a more immersive sound, you become enveloped in the action. Just pair with Dolby Atmos compatible media and prepare for room-filling sound. Even better, the Hisense 55U8GQTUK has a 2.1.2 multi-channel speaker system to do it justice.

Game on
Featuring a dedicated Game Mode, the 55U8GQTUK makes the perfect gaming monitor/TV combi. With 4K 60Hz VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) and ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode), gaming is optimised for a faster, more responsive feel.

Hisense style
Featuring Hisense’s Floating Glass Display, the 55U8GQTUK performs as highly in the style stakes as it does sound and picture. A stylish, pure metal single stand design features integral cable management for a tidy finish.

VIDAA U5 for Smart TV
With Hisense’s Smart OS called VIDAA U5, this Hisense 55” TV makes Smart TV simple. Bringing together a wide range of apps and devices, VIDAA U5 lets you switch between them all in three steps or fewer – no more complex sub-menus. You’ll find easy access to all your favourite TV services, including Netflix, Prime Video, YouTube and Freeview Play.

Voice control your TV
Supplied with voice control, the 55U8GQTUK makes navigating through control functions a breeze. Alexa is built-in, with the Google Assistant also available. For simple, easy control, just ask.

Freeview Play for catch-up TV
Freeview Play makes catch-up TV easy. Find programmes from BBC iPlayer, the ITV Hub, All4 and Demand 5 sitting alongside 70 TV Channels and up to 15 HD channels. Simply scroll back in your TV guide to watch shows you missed from the last 7 days. Just make sure your TV is connected to the internet and you're good to go.

Connection upgrade
Fitted with four HDMI sockets, the 55U8GQTUK is perfect for connecting to your TV set-top box, UHD Blu-ray player, games console and other device. Other connections include twin USB sockets – ideal for connecting media devices and playing back music, photos and video. Throw in an optical connection for a soundbar/base and you've everything you need from a high-end TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement Tv I purchased a Hisense TV from Richer sound 5 years ago, which became defective. After an engineer attended without an fuss they agreed to replace it and give me a credit note for the initial purchase price. Excellent customer service and would recommend Richer sound to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great bright picture...dont like motion issues Had this tv 2 wks or so ago,firstly I made the mistake of watching too many youtube videos because this tv is different to all of them,different stand..remote..no hdmi 2.1,yes I should have looked closer at your details page. Daniel at Lichfield was very good although no tv in store to look at. Im still getting my head around settings but finding the motion thing hard to sort,playing 4k discs however look amazing,I am considering an exchange to an oled,was told got 28 days if not happy..my advice is if possible try before you buy..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My first thoughts are wow. This TV is incredibly light for the size and this worked when setting it up on the wall although a very sturdy stand was provided. Setting this up was easier and better than expected as I am normally a complete novice at these things especially ensuring all the channels are showing and working as they should. Navigation between channels was easy and the fact that you can control the remote with your voice using Alexa or Google Assistant makes it more fun and different. The menu is very user friendly and you can easily switch between apps. The 4K Ultra HD HDR LED and the IMAX enhanced makes the quality of films and tv shows I watched absolutely high quality and really reminds me of cinema screens. The screen colours are very bright and normally when during the day when I watch TV I wold have to close my curtains, however with this I no longer need to. Overall this is a fantastic TV which really meets my needs

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great balance of deep blacks and high brightness [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was looking for a 65" TV to go in our bar/sports room, however an OLED was out of budget. I happened to stumble on this Hisense set and their ULED technology that promised great blacks and contrast. I haven't had a Hisense product before but their name was all over the Euros so I thought I would give them a try. I've got to say, in terms black colours, this TV does not disappoint. Is it true black like OLED? No, and it never will be due to the way the technology works, but I would say it's very close. Blacks actually look like black instead of the dark grey you normally get on LED panels. This ULED technology also has a benefit over OLED in that it can give a brighter picture. I have a 55" OLED in the living room and sometimes it's not as bright as I would like - a known issue with OLED screens. 4K video looks stunning and the120z refresh rate is a nice bonus. I'm not a massive gamer so this feature might not get the best of use from me, but it's nice to know it's there. The only negative i have is around the operating system. It runs on "VIDAA", something I've never heard of before, which isn't a bad thing in itself. I would have preferred Android TV as it has a much wider variety of apps, although with that said, the TV does have the usual offerings of Freeview Play, Netflix, Prime Video and YouTube etc. This issue can easily be solved with a Google/Android TV device or Amazon Fire Stick at not much extra cost. Lastly, i just wanted to mention the speakers. Most modern TVs are so thin that speakers are an after thought and are generally quite bad, however this sin't the case with this TV. I found the audio from the speakers to be very good and easily filled the room. A soundbar or home theatre system would obviously output much better results, but they are definitely not a necessity with this TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this item last week for the euro 2020 final and I have to say it is brilliant. The picture quality is fantastic; it actually feels as if you are in the stadium watching it. Secondly, the audio is first class and crisp. No crackling sounds and you can make out every bit of noise. Thirdly, it is easy to assemble and use. Finally, the apps that come with the tv are brilliant. Overall a fantastic TV and I'm so glad I purchased it.
