”The upshot is an image that’s brighter, punchier and more detailed, while maintaining the black depth and naturalism we love.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review.

OLED – the TV gold standard

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 9 processor – a new reference in picture processing
New to this exciting LG TV is the powerful Alpha 9 processor. With increased processing power, Alpha 9 enhances motion handling for smoother images. Object-based contrast is also improved, giving sharper, more detailed images. With Alpha 9 you’ll see images with truer realism than ever.

True Colour Accuracy Pro
For even greater realism, True Colour Accuracy Pro increases the amount of data points for colour. This makes flesh tones more accurate, landscapes more natural and animations more vivid. No matter what the genre, True Colour Accuracy makes it more life-like 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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow what a TV..picture quality is second to none Got this beast of a TV 2 weeks ago and Couldn't be happier..TV picture quality even the sound isn't bad and being a gadget geek loads of apps and the OS is superb
Date published: 2018-07-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG OLED55C8PLA Great TV with outstanding picture in HDR UHD and HD. The magic remote works very well and a vast improvement on earlier versions. And the processor in this version is so much faster so response time to commands are fast. Set up was simple and far more straightforward than reading the booklet made it sound. Even the stand was simple to fix. But give yourself a lot of room and make sure you protect the screen. Use the box to raise the screen so you don't twist it when attaching the stand. A more few bits of advice as I found the picture too dark at first. Take off Eye Care, Eye Comfort and Eco. I will try putting them back in one by one and in different combinations sometime in the future, however. In addition, you get an extremely thin handbook so go into the full manual on the TV itself and read it bit by bit. Find it in Settings, General, About TV. Time spent here will pay off in the long run. The voice control works to a large extent but oddly could not find BBC One. And why you would want to use it to turn the TV off when you have to press the mike button anyway was a source of amusement to me. There was a software update yesterday so I'm confident this feature will improve. Netflix and Amazon buttons on the remote are time-savers. Remember to upgrade your subscription for Netflix which then automatically supplies the best quality available. For Amazon Prime, no increase in subscription but you have to select the UHD section. I've linked my TV to my Home Cinema and this was very simple. Just one click to switch off TV and AV Receiver now. It took me a bit of time to fiddle with the sound settings as strangely I got no sound from Netflix. But I got there in the end. All in all I am delighted with my purchase and also am really pleased I got my TV from Richer Sounds as the service I got was second to none - even carrying the TV down the street to the car park for me. Thank you very much, Bob! It made the whole shopping experience a positive one for when you get home to watch an incredible TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent TV and professional Really pleased with purchase and have watched several movies in 4K. Is a huge investment but given my previous TV lasted 10 years hope it will be worth it. LG apps and interface are smooth and picture quality is outstanding. Special thanks to team at Richer Sounds Guildford (TV didn't fit in my boot and they kindly stayed open late whilst a friend helped me). If you are connecting to an amplifier make sure you update the firmware on the amp to the latest version (I did this with the Denon 1909).
