£749
With its powerful new Alpha 7 processor, the LG 49SK8100PLA delivers a smooth, detailed picture that’s top of its class.

Nano Cell technology – everyone gets the best seat in the house

Using uniformly sized display particles, this LG 49 inch TV gives enhanced colour accuracy and the ability to produce wider viewing angles with less colour distortion. This means that the colour accuracy remains virtually unchanged over a 60-degree viewing angle. Finally, everyone in the room can enjoy the highest quality images!

The widest range of HDR support with Active HDR
LG continue their wide range of HDR support with this flexible TV. Advanced HDR by Technicolor offers reference levels of image and colour accuracy. As well as Advanced HDR, this 49" LG TV also offers decoding for HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision. HDR10 is widely used on UHD gaming consoles from Sony and Microsoft. HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma HDR) is a broadcast and user generated standard format that is set to become the standard for transmitting 4K signals.

Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
Dolby Vision optimises the HDR format to give quite simply the sharpest, most accurate images possible. Dolby vision-equipped TVs, like this LG, can decode both generic HDR content and content that's specifically been encoded in Dolby Vision - a leading format in Hollywood and cinemas. Dolby Vision also adjusts the picture to take full advantage of each display's characteristics and presents an optimized picture for each scene in specially mastered content.

Alpha 7 processor – for enhanced picture processing
This LG TV features their advanced Alpha 7 processor. This provides improved processing over and above a quad-core chip. With the more powerful processing comes improved picture quality. Advantages including enhanced image rendering, improved shadow details and smoother motion, all giving a more realistic image than ever.

Dolby Atmos compatible sound system
With a Dolby Atmos processor built-in this LG LED TV can decode Atmos sound tracks - giving you the potential for an even more immersive sound. Although we’d always recommend a soundbar or base for the best sound quality, the built-in system punches hard for a flat screen TV.

Part of the unique ThinQ AI system for effortless control
LG’s unique artificial intelligence system brings together a wide range of products under intuitive control. For your TV this means intelligent voice control and the ability to seamlessly work with third party services from Google and Amazon. The more LG ThinQ AI products you have around the home the more seamless and integrated the control becomes.

webOS Smart system now with Google Assistant
The award-winning LG webOS smart TV system is already one of the most highly-rated in the industry. Powerful but user-friendly, webOS makes Smart TV even smarter. Now featuring Google Assistant, webOS just got even better. Google Assistant is capable of changing the channel and input via voice command. It also integrates with services such as Google Photos and Google Maps to make your TV an even greater source of entertainment.

Stylish Crescent stand
As one of their top models, the 49SK8100PLA is fitted with the sweeping ‘Crescent’ stand. Finished in ‘steel silver’ it combines with the ‘Brilliant Titan’ TV finish to make this TV a real head-turner.

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 over 60TV 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture and sound Having done a lot of research I decided on a LG. Then I had to decide which model. The 49SK8100 seemed to be around £200 more than similar sized 49-50". Believe me it's well worth paying the extra for this model. So many superb high spec features too long to list go to make this a super TV. Even old poor quality produced TV channels and films look good. the HD is Brilliant, but the 4K UHD is absolutely stunning. There is a 4K UHD test video on YouTube that you can look at called (Man Show GoPro) I could not believe the absolute stunning quality which is the exact same as my friends LG OLED. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the sound was, you don't really need a sound bar at all unless you want it blasting out. All this for under £600 is amazing value, you will not be disappointed with this choice. Richer Sounds Sheffield as usual were so friendly knowledgeable and helpful and still give out the same super customer service as they did when I bought my 1st Hi-Fi way back in 1978. Top Quality Products, Great Value, Free 6 Year Warranty and know the importance of taking care of there valued customers who will keep returning for many years to come. Special thanks to Ollie (manager) for all your friendly help and advice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so Great I bought the 49sk8100 because in the summer I got 55SJ810 which is fantastic tv great picture either SD or 4k. But this Sk8100pla the picture quality is no where near as good as the SJ 810. I have tried every settings on the TV the pictures looks yellowish. I bought it on Black Friday in the Edinburgh shop. Not sure what to do with it. ItsVery Disappointed. This was my 3rd tv purchased from Richer Sounds Edinburgh
