SELF-LIT OLED – the ultimate picture technology
Rather than using a backlight, OLED TVs feature self-illuminating pixels. This SELF-LIT technology means that you get 100% colour fidelity, infinite contrast with the deepest depth and stunning detail.
Power at its core – Alpha 7 Gen 4 processor
This LG 55 inch TV uses a new, more powerful processor for optimised sound and vision. The Alpha 7 Gen 4 processor features deep-learning algorithms that analyse and then optimise content. Whether you’re watching a movie or sport, TV or gaming, the processor adapts the sound and vison, automatically.
Ultimate detail - Dolby Vision IQ
For ultimate detail, in all environments, this LG OLED features Dolby Vision IQ. 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.
HDR made better, with HDR10 Pro
LG’s powerful processing also helps in getting the very best from HDR10 material. Whether watching movies or gaming with HDR10 games, HDR10 Pro intensifies the regular HDR experience. HDR10 Pro automatically adjusts the brightness, enhancing colour and detail for a more vivid picture.
See the picture exactly as originally intended, with Filmmaker Mode
If you’re mad about movies, you’ll love Filmmaker Mode. Designed in collaboration with filmmakers and Hollywood 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.
Game Optimiser with HFR, VRR and ALLM for a gaming advantage
Game Optimiser utilises a dedicated gaming menu, letting you select and control specific gaming features, such as Reduce Blue Light, Prevent Input Delay, VRR and AMD FreeSync. Equipped with an HDMI 2.1 interface, this LG TV gets the very best from your choice of gaming source. ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) mean that your TV automatically adjusts to the optimised settings for gaming – giving you a smoother and faster response.
Dolby Atmos compatible sound
With a Dolby Atmos processor built-in this LG 55” TV decodes Atmos sound tracks - giving you the potential for an even more immersive sound. With its built-in 2.2 speaker set-up and a 40 watt amp, the OLED55B16LA delivers a smooth, well-balanced sound.
Welcome home - LG webOS 6 for the best in smart TV
Widely regarded as one of the best smart TV platforms, LG’s webOS system just keeps getting better. The latest webOS 6 uses your viewing history to recommend a range of shows and movies from across various apps. An improved home page offers improved graphics, with dedicated info and search boxes.
Magic Remote made better
LG’s Magic Remote has always led the field for simple, gesture and voice control. The latest version retains this, while offering direct keys for popular streaming services and a new, cleaner style. Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney + and Rakuten TV are all now just the touch of a button away. Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa also get dedicated buttons for simply voice recognition.
The hub of your home entertainment
Featuring LG’s ThinQ AI technology, you can control a Home IoT ecosystem with natural voice recognition. With both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa built-in, it makes it even easier to control your LG OLED TV and quickly access the entertainment you’re looking for.
See the massive difference OLED makes to your movies, TV and gaming, with the LG OLED55B16LA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by joba from LG OLED still the best all round choice for a TV We’ve had the 65 inch version of this TV for a few years and needing a 55 inch in another room I went through all the current offerings and with research, and some guidance in store, ended up with another LG OLED. Fantastic picture, good user interface. Can’t comment on sound as use with a Sonos Amp. The chaps in the Solihull store as great as ever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AndyGrrrrrrrrr from Not totally convinced yet I got this as a replacement for a 2019 LG OLED that had suffered screen burn - unfortunately this appears to be an increasing issue for LG OLEDs. Excellent service as ever from Richer Sounds, LG were useless. Out of the box the picture is underwhelming but improves dramatically when the ‘eco’ setting is switched off (Services menu). I am still fiddling around with the settings and expect to get an excellent picture eventually - as I did on the 2019 model. I have just bought a relatively cheap 50” Hisense and it was perfect out of the box - LG take note! Can’t comment on the sound quality as I use an A/v system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DJH70 from Good tv, worthy update to my previous Samsung LED Good tv, very good value and great service via Richer Sounds. The wireless EarPods are a nice bonus. TV set up was relatively easy even without comprehensive instructions. Managed to get from box to fully working with SkyQ, DVD player and Sonos Beam 5:1 surround system in around 45 minutes. Pleased with purchase and enhanced features/ picture quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hunk15 from Great picture Bought this three weeks ago, this is my first LG tv, usually buy Samsung but was told this has a better picture quality, also plenty of features, magic remote get a bit of getting used to and going to the channel menu could be quicker as it comes up with what’s on now and you have to go to full menu to get that up, overall a great tv the now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CliveSport from No BT Sport support via Browser TV seems very good - however, was told by LG that whilst there is yet to be a BT Sport appn, the option to login via the TVs browser and watch BT Sport this way would be an option, it is not as BT does not currently support. What is the latest on LG developing the. BT Sport Appn pls? BT help forum said it was to be ready for the start of the current football season.
