”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.

Don’t settle for less. Go for the best, with the LG OLED55C8PLA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic picture I bought this TV about 2 months ago. I previously owned a LCD for almost a decade. The difference in picture quality is amazing! Freesat looks very good, particularly the HD channels. But this TV really shines when you feed it high quality video like blu-ray and Netflix 4k. Colours are accurate, motion is very smooth and blacks are blacks! In addition to superb picture quality you get very good sound, a very responsive user interface and very good remote control. If I had to find a flaw that would be the hdmi ports which are only 4 but since I'll be getting an A/V receiver in the future that is not a big issue. Overall I'm extremely satisfied with this TV and I would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super picture, not dissapointed Great picture, great service, overall very happy. Was extremely worried I'd break the screen taking it out of the box, but all ok. Had some fun and games configuring ARC with a receiver and harmony remote, but solved it through seeing my receiver to ignore ARC, but still left it in the TV for Netflix etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from superb all round tv picture stunning we bought this a couple of weeks ago and could nt be moer pleased with it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great picture and good sound but..... We love this TV, the picture is fantastic and the sound is fine too. There is a slight issue with the 5GHz wifi connection, with nothing in the manual to cover it and no help from LG customer services. Once you know you have to select channel 36 on your wifi it works fine as long as no one else in the area is on the same wifi channel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Award winning picture quality This television has won lots of awards, including Which? and What Hi-Fi? The superior picture quality makes it easy to see why. The only slight issue we had with performance was an occasional and temporary deterioration in picture quality while watching internet television using WIFI (we are thinking of moving our telephone point and router to allow an Ethernet cable connection to hopefully address this issue). The television is easy to set up and comes complete with Freeview Play, offering a plethora of viewing options, but not the ability to pause or rewind live television. It does offer the capacity to record programmes, but you need to add USB storage to provide the space required to do so. Having been misled by salespeople (at other retailers, not Richer Sounds), we were not expecting these limitations. Despite this, we are happy with our purchase and would recommend this television if you want high picture quality and are not too concerned about these extra capabilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb picture and the perfect size for our room I bought this TV after extensive reading of reviews. The picture quality is excellent either in 4K or HD. The sound from the internal speakers is good. But worth connecting up to external ones. The user interface is easy to use so all in all great screen at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb picture and great sound Bought this as last years model. Great value for money. Picture quality is excellent. Upscaling of HD to UHD is very good. Sound is great now that we are used to it as it has a different feel to our previous TV. UHD channels are stunning.
