With AI at the heart of its picture, sound and smart tech, the LG 65SM8600PLA offers tomorrow’s tech, today.

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

Using uniformly sized display particles, this LG 65 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.

Local Dimming for enhanced contrast
Making the most of its Nano Cell tech, the 65SM8600PLA features Local Dimming. This gives enhanced contrast, with the ability to precisely control the darkest and lightest sections of the images. What this means for you is greater realism and most natural images possible from an LED screen.

Improved processor at its heart
With the a7 Gen 2 processor at its heart, this 65 inch LG TV is not only faster at processing but brings about a whole host of new features. Intelligent Artificial Intelligence (AI) benefits both picture and sound for the clearest images and audio yet.

AI Picture
Artificial Intelligence comes of age with LG’s Deep Learning AI Picture. This clever system compares the signal with a table of content and automatically adjusts the picture quality to the most accurate image possible. Using an ambient light sensor, the system adjusts screen brightness and other criteria (with HDR signals). The result is greater realism with a cleaner and sharper picture.

AI Sound
If you fancy a more cinematic sound from your TV, then LG’s AI Sound should be music to your ears. Using AI algorithms, AI Sound up-mixes two-channel audio to virtual 5.1 sound – giving a much more immersive sound stage. The a7 Gen 2 processor also optimises the sound based on content type – giving clearer vocals with news and dramas. The powerful AI can also take account of your room’s acoustics and layout and adjusts to give the cleanest sound possible.

Dolby Atmos compatible sound
With a Dolby Atmos processor built-in this LG 65” TV decodes Atmos sound tracks - giving you the potential for an even more immersive sound. Although we’d recommend a soundbar/base for the fullest sound, the built-in 20 watt audio system delivers punchy sound.

Upgrade to wireless surround sound with WiSA*
WiSA stands for Wireless Speaker & Audio. The system wirelessly streams sound up to 24bit 96kHz, 8-channels and includes Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. WiSA is flexible as you decide which speakers you want and where you want them – they don’t even have to be from LG. Simply look for WiSA supported speakers and decide how you’d like your audio to sound. *Separate dongle purchase required.

Now featuring Apple AirPlay 2 and Apple TV app
With support for Apple AirPlay 2, this LG 65 inch TV lets you effortlessly stream from your Apple device. Even better, support for Apple’s TV app means you can enjoy Apple’s 4K HDR content – featuring top quality Dolby Atmos and Vision. Support for Apple’s HomeKit makes this LG highly compatible with the whole Apple system.

Smart voice control – ThinQ AI integrates with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa*
Voice control has got much smarter with this LG TV. Press the dedicated voice mic button and ThinQ AI decides if the TV’s software or Google Assistant handles the command. 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. As an alternative, direct voice control via Amazon Alexa is also set to be an option from mid/late 2019. *Alexa built-in upgrade due later in the year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nanocell Magic I bought this 2 weeks ago and can honestly say it’s my best purchase in years. Ultra bright colours rich blacks and probably the most easy to use interface I’ve used. 4K display is brilliant, HDMI Arc connectivity allows easy soundbar setup and users who like gaming will not find a better TV this side of OLED sets. Overall I’m phenomenally impressed with this TV and may soon buy another for my kids games room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Picture, Sound and Functionality This TV is awesome value for money. Combination of great picture quality in both SD & HD together with really good sound for a flat panel. Another fantastic improvement is the availability of a vast array of apps including all the major streaming services direct from the TV so no need for separate sticks / players.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from UNEVEN BLACK AND LIGHT AREAS - VERY DISAPPOINTING Purchased as a replacement in January 2020 for my LG 65UF860V 3D TV which stopped working after 4 years and no spare part available ( John Lewis purchase ). This was a direct replacement from Richer Sounds. Fragile and flimsy. Slightly leaning forward and also losing track of the ball whilst watching football. Rarely used but with lockdown noticing more issues. Whilst watching NOW TV and Disney there are many uneven dark and light areas randomly changing during viewing. All issues already discussed with RS and LG. The reason seems to be down to the content and the way the TV is processing a 720p HD and 1080p Full HD signal through the internal 4K upscaling to the 2160p panel and the overall backlight uniformity of the panel. Different settings or a Factory Reset has not worked as advised by LG. I have owned an LG LED TV and a 6 year old Panasonic LED TV. Neither performed as bad as this with the same content. The 4K content appears fine but does one need to watch UHD at all times to enjoy the viewing experience? I am not too optimistic regarding an outcome. Matter still being discussed. The same issues have been mentioned by others ( see John Lewis website ). On this evidence I would not recommend this TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Service when I needed it Could not get the picture on my new 65in Nano TV looking perfect, I worked it out in the end that for some reason if you have a sky box and TV Ariel in at the same time their is a conflict within the set. Don't ask me why. Removed the Ariel more by accident and it fixed the problem however, prior to this and my frustration I contacted Richer Sound and was impressed with how quickly they came back to me. Well done guys, you do give great service
