”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 Beautiful! The tv shows just about the best picture money can buy, 4k movies look stellar, Netflix and amazon stream really well to it. Xbox One X really shines on this thing, just had a ton of fun testing out all the 4K stuff I could find. The speed of the OS is also top notch, everything pretty easy to get used to and the build quality is great. Very easy to wall mount,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV Bought this TV a few weeks ago and am really happy with it. Great picture and even the sound is good despite not using a soundbar yet, but I am sure we will upgrade in the future for the full movie effect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh LED!! After looking at all the different TVs around I decided I really wanted an OLED this time. I was torn between the competition but decided in the end to go for the LG C8. The reason I did was purely for the lower gaming lag on this set. From the design of the set in our new house to the amazing picture I am more than happy. Settings I found on a calibration site online which have made it look sweet. Wheather it’s 4K Planet earth 2 or Dolby Vision Lost in space you won’t be disappointed! Also playing games like titanfall 2 online are just great. Speedy response is up there with the best. I can’t really comment on the sound I’m afraid as I have 7.1 surround in use all the time. One negative was that I had a cluster of dead pixels apon set up. Richer sounds in Romford were amazing as always and just swapped the rough set the next day. Thanks Joel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I took the OLED plunge I was apprehensive about moving to OLED, but I'm glad I did. This TV is superb! Excellent black levels, brightness and colour accuracy. The webOS smart platform is so fast and easy to use, especially coming from Sony's slow and terrible Android OS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good reason to buy a new TV. I bought this oddly enough to watch MotoGP on via the browser and I’m pleased to confirm it works great. Having experienced how easy it was to get up and running using the intuitive menu system (LG have got this right in my opinion) I couldn’t help but delve deeper into all the TV’s functions and smart features. Again all work without a hitch. Now all of a sudden a TV that was bought for one reason has re-kindled and ignited my curiosity and eagerness to see what else the TV has to offer. I have not watched terrestrial TV for many years and for my own reasons this will remain the case. However, tune it in and there is a huge selection of channels I never personally knew existed. So for those who pass the hours watching their TV and terrestrial channels in particular, you will not be disappointed with the picture. The sound is perfectly acceptable from its built in speakers. Not the best sound ever but certainly adequate by most standards. The smart functions work flawlessly and all off a sudden my amp, Blu-ray player and surround speaker system were pulled out of the cupboard. This is where the quality of the TV shines through. I’m already looking for a media unit, and looking to replace my Blu-ray player with the Oppo UDP-203 so I can enjoy some films in 4K. Blindingly good picture with the right source. Richer Sounds were great at the time of purchase and a first for me, they made contact a week later to ask how I was getting on and if I needed any assistance. Really like the personal touch they provide. I can repeat what all the reviews already say, all I can add is believe me, it’s a great piece of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable Picture Quality. I bought this TV online on a Sunday. The television was ready for collection from the store the following Wednesday. The staff were extremely helpful helping me to my car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Having spent years wanting an OLED TV... Oh boy was it worth the wait!!! To make the most of it, you need two things, first a 4K Blu-ray player and secondly a 4K disc that has Dolby Vision. Every time the smile gets bigger. It's been less than two weeks but i reckon it'll take some beating!
