With both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos on board, the LG OLED55E8PLA offers the highest standards in sound and vision.

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.

Sleek Picture-on-Glass design
LG's super-stylish Picture-on-Glass design consists of an ultra-thin panel with a translucent glass back. Viewed from the side, the TV's panel is little thicker than a pane of glass - but a lot more exciting to watch!

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.

Dolby Atmos compatible soundbar built-in
With a Dolby Atmos processor built-in this LG OLED 55” TV can decode Atmos sound tracks - giving you the potential for an even more immersive sound. With built-in 4.2 speaker soundbar and a powerful 60 watt amp, the OLED55E8PLA punches harder the typical flat panel 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.

Twin tuners and Freeview Play for flexible viewing
With twin tuners on board you can record onto a USB-linked device while watching a different channel, simultaneously. 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.

Style, sound and vision all come together to make the LG OLED55E8PLA a formidable TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG OLED55E8PLA Wicked TV. How did I live with my previous one for so long?! It’s easy to set up, easy to use, the menu layout is intuitive and it has been designed very well. It looks like a work of art hung on our wall. I am so pleased I am going to buy another one for a different room in our house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing looks, sound and picture The bother tv we had was only a year old. But this one has a much better picture and the actual look of the t.v. is amazing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Believe the Reviews Purchased after reading a number of reviews where it always came out in the top slots. The reviews weren't wrong! I enjoy films and this has a cracking picture and sound. Was considering a sound bar but having used the set for a couple of weeks it's looking unlikely. The Dolby Atmos does a great job using the built in speakers and who needs a thunderous bass when the kids are in bed!
