For the best in image realism, OLED technology is still king. See the difference for yourself, with the LG OLED55B8S.

OLED – the gold standard for TV

Highly developed by LG, OLED TV technology remains at the forefront of image quality. Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) TV offers the most advanced picture quality currently available. Unlike LED screens, OLED doesn't require backlighting, so the colour is consistent right across the screen, with greatly enhanced contrast levels.

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.

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 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.

High Frame Rate Support via OTT*
High Frame Rate (HFR) support at up to 4K/120fps means the potential for smoother images with incredibly realism. With a variety of films filmed in HFR since the ground-breaking The Hobbit of 2012, this is the future of movie technology. The technology is also available on some TV shows and is especially impressive with sport. *OTT means that HFR is supported Over The Top using apps such as Netflix 4K. It is not available via HDMI inputs on this TV or simultaneously with HDR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture, especially Dolby Vision on Netflix! When I first switched the tv the picture was good but not as good as I'd read about. However after about a week of 'breaking in' I think this is a stunning tv with an amazing picture. Broadcasts in SD and HD are as good as I've seen but the picture quality goes up several levels when you start playing UHD. We have been watching the Netflix show Stranger Things directly through the LG's app. The first series was good in HDR but the second was filmed in Dolby Vision and I have never seen a picture like it. The contrast levels, depth of colour and clarity are outstanding. I still can't believe that this type of quality can be wirelessly streamed. This is an older LG model but for the price you can get it for now it is a no-brainer. Apparently the latest LG OLEDs are even better but they are quite a bit more expensive. I am delighted with my choice and would recommend anyone to demo this model if you are on a tighter budget.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great telly Did my research regarding burn in which was the only thing stopping me pull the trigger on an oled but took the plunge anyway........I'm so glad I did cos this TV is great. Have had this TV well over a month now and I got it at a discounted price matched price and have had no issues with Image retention never mind burn in and I've been playing plenty of ps4. The LG os is brilliant, fast and simple and the remote is very good and so is the android app. And of course watching movies on this is exquisite. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb piece of kit Purchased this just before Christmas to get the most out of all the entertainment over the Xmas period. It didn't let me down. Great picture and sound but the features (WebOS, Google assistant connection, Iplayer etc etc) were great as well.
