Top quality picture and sound come together to make the LG 55SJ850V a true premium TV.


Always the best picture in the house, with LG's Nano Cell technology

LG's Nano Cell technology uses tiny particles to reproduce a more accurate picture. The technology offers a wider viewing angle, giving everyone in the room the best possible picture quality. Nano Cell tech also aims to reduce on-screen light glow, improving the picture quality even in brightly lit rooms.

The widest range of HDR support yet with Active HDR
Taking HDR beyond any of its rivals, the LG 55SJ850V is the most flexible HDR-equipped TV to date. Advanced HDR by Technicolor offers reference levels of image and colour accuracy. As well as Advanced HDR, this 55" 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.

Premium sound by Harmon Kardon
Developed in conjunction with AV and Hi-Fi experts Harman Kardon, this 55 inch TV's audio system offers a step-up from the average 'thin' flatscreen TV sound. With built-in subwoofers and a powerful 40 watt amp, the 55SJ850 punches harder the typical flat panel TV.

webOS 3.5 - the critics' choice
Widely acclaimed as one of the best smart TV interfaces, LG's webOS 3.5 operating system is more refined than ever. Updates to the hardware means that webOS is 40% faster than before, making using it a seamless experience. WebOS 3.5 uses superimposed icons, folders and side bars for clear and easy access to smart content without leaving the current screen image. New features for webOS 3.5 include 'Magic Link', 'Magic Sound Tuning' and 360-degress video.

Magic made better
Following on from previous 'Magic' technology, webOS 3.5 now has the ability to record 'Magic Zoom', letting you record to USB highlighted sections of the screen. 'Magic Link' gives additional information, such as the actors in the scene and related YouTube videos. 'Magic Sound Tuning' uses a microphone built into the remote to optimise the TV's sound, according to your room's acoustics.

See the bigger picture with 360-degrees video
Now you can see the bigger picture with 360-degrees video. When watching suitable video, this feature lets you use the remote to track 360-degrees from left to right. It also allows you to 'look' up and down and even zoom in and out. Simply put, it's the closest thing yet to actually being there!

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.

Smart TV that includes all your favourite apps
The LG 55SJ850V comes packed with useful apps that look great on the big screen. The BBC iPlayer, YouTube, Now TV, Demand 5 and Netflix are just some of the VOD (Video On Demand) services that come as standard with the LG. There's also easy access to music sites like Spotify and Napster plus social sites Facebook and Twitter.

DLNA and Wi-Fi make this TV part of your home network
DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatibility means the 55SJ850V will seamlessly blend with your home network. With DLNA you can stream music or video from your laptop, PC or NAS drive. Thanks to built-in Wi-Fi, even connecting up is a breeze.

Let everyone enjoy the best seat in the house, with the Nano Cell technology of the LG 55SJ850V.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent TV I bought this television 2 weeks ago from Richer Sounds Glasgow and it was incredibly easy to put together and set up, but I would recommend 2 pairs of hands before attempting to take it out the box. The picture and sound quality are excellent and has lots of options & features to fine tune it to your own viewing preferences.The webOS3.5 is a great interface and works very well. Watched the Blue Planet 2 all over again and was sensational with this television. Not OLED but very close and at half the price I would certainly recommend buying this television

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LG sj850v Though it had backlight bleed, it do not affect motion picture quality. Good for the price and was cheaper compared to other store. Salesperson is quite knowledgeable and his advice was helpful for a future home cinema plan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Picture&Sound.ExcValue&Ease of use.Bargain! I bought the LG55SJ850V 2 weeks ago as an upgrade on my 55UH770V.The sound quality is superb and a big step up from my previous model.Double the Local dimming zones on the nano cell panel make for much less'blooming' effect.Hdr support is excellent and the technicolor expert preset makes for superb picture.The web os is so good &stutter free on both these models that I haven't bothered with Virgin's catch up service for 2 years now. Support from LG and richer sounds is second to none.Don't be afraid to ask LG for additional firmware support either.I rallied them for HLG and HDR game mode on the 2016 UK models and we got it and more. Overall I'd never buy a different brand.Seriously...LG for life

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very good TV. I bought this after much research and so far, I am glad I did. One feature I wanted was the curved stand so it would fit onto my cabinet. Sound and picture is very good, and although it seemed huge when I got it out of the box, the tv soon blends into the room. I like the smart handset and the settings are easy to familiarise yourself with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great picture even though not OLED Does everything expected and so much more. Great picture but average sound. Plugged into existing Sony/Bose AV system very easily for lovely sound and with LG wand controlling volume; unexpected/nice! Android catchup works well. Interface to other devices is very useful with PC mirroring. Stand is much more stable than the old Sony. Solihull shop experience not enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb TV Wow! This TV is fantastic even better than I expected. The Nano cell technology make's the quality of the picture exceptional with it's upscaling to make even standard TV quality, then the 4K is a whole different level.
