”This LG 4K OLED is a superb all-rounder.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 Product of the Year award winner.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Purchase I've been looking to upgrade from a 7 year old 37in Sony Bravia since the middle of last year. After a lot of research and shopping around I settled on this TV. Tuning the TV and setting up the Apps was easy, just click on them and log in. Netflix detected I now had a 4k TV and straight away stung me for an extra £2 a month for the 4K service. Picture is excellent on 4k service Netflix and Amazon Prime. Upscaling appears good so far from TV aerial signal and NOWTV. Stepson was initially unhappy with the Xbox One picture but as soon as the TV was set to game mode this seemed to sort itself out. It's not one of the latest Xbox S or X so it's not 4k so it is the TV doing the work here. I can't comment on the sound from the TV as I'm using a Sonos Beam (so it sounds great). The Beam sits nicely in front of the TV without obscuring any of the screen. Three of the other TVs I looked (Sony AF8, AF9 and a Panasonic OLED) at had very low stands so the Beam would obscure the screen. Be warned it is a 2 person job to remove the tv from the box without damaging the panel and a 2 person job to move the tv around. Finally a word on the staff in Preston. Friendly, patient and knowledgeable. Never pushy on sales, and I know, I have been looking since June 2017.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture can not fault it Having been a customer for many years and spent not hundreds but thousand of £s with you ,and even in the last 2 weeks have bought two TVs from you must say something of the excellent way I have been treated ,can not fault the service or the product knowledge of the staff

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astonishing It might not be the cheapest tv on the market (by a stretch) but the 4K picture quality is quite astonishing. Landscapes almost appear 3D and I pity the make-up artists who must now have a double workload trying to cover up the wrinkles and blemishes of their stars and celebs. The detail is remarkable. The sound quality isn't bad either, although I tend to use my home-cinema system for best effect. The magic remote makes commands and adjustments simple. If you can't be bothered to fiddle with the controls, just talk to it! Apps aplenty, with all the catchup tv channels to hand and Amazon and Netflix at the press of a button . Very happy with the performance of this piece of kit. First class.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV I bought the LG OLED C8 and SJ 8 Soundbar. Together these are a great pair. The TV smart facility is fab and has allowed me to commence Cable, DVD and Apple TV as well as another box via the Soundbar which is in HDMI/Arc setting so everything LG air not can be operated from one remote control and often by voice only command. I would recommend this system to anyone looking for a TV and Soundbar and would further recommend buying it via RIchersounds for the great service and knowledge I got when buying the system and the 6 year warranty it comes with via them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent OLED Did a lot of research before I bought this and after using it for a couple of weeks I can see why it was awarded TV of the year. The only think I don’t like is that it keeps trying to get you too turn on the google assistant and after reading what google will pass on from your searches I won’t be doing that.
