Take a step up in picture, sound and style, with the LG 55UN81006LB.

See the picture exactly as originally intended, with Filmmaker Mode
If you’re mad about movies, you’ll love Filmmaker Mode. Designed in collaboration with filmmakers and Hollywood studios, Filmmaker Mode lets you experience the cinematic vision, exactly as the director intended. Overriding the TV’s own motion and picture processing, Filmmaker Mode presents the correct aspect ratio, colour and frame rate – just as the filmmakers intended.

Superior picture for all – wide viewing angle
Featuring an IPS 4K panel, this LG 55 inch TV offers 100% colour accuracy, even from a 60-degree angle. This means everyone in the room gets to see the immersive picture, with life-like realism. True Colour Accuracy takes this realism to the next level, delivering sharper, richer and more natural colour.

LG’s Active HDR gives stunning detail
LG’s Active HDR analyses the picture signal, frame-by-frame to give optimum colour and contrast. This means stunning detail and contrast with each and every scene – making it ideal for movies and gaming. The LG includes support for HDR10 and HLG. 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 seen as the standard for transmitting 4K signals.

AI Sound
If you fancy a more cinematic sound from your TV, then LG’s AI Sound should be music to your ears. Using AI algorithms, AI Sound up-mixes two-channel audio to virtual 5.1 sound – giving a much more immersive sound stage. The Quad-core processor also optimises the sound based on content type – giving clearer vocals with news and dramas. The powerful AI can also take account of your room’s acoustics and layout and adjusts to give the cleanest sound possible.

Sleek style
Taking a big step up in style, the 55UN81006LB features a boomerang-style stand. Complementing this, the bezel and stand are both finished in a premium Light Grey Pearl colour, rather than the more basic black of lower models.

Upgraded connectivity
The UN81006LB series not only offers an upgrade in style, connectivity is enhanced, too. An extra HDMI socket takes the total to four – enough for a games console, Blu-ray/DVD, set-top box and PC. There’s also a component input that’s ideal for legacy DVD players and games consoles.

AI TV for control your way
With AI (Artificial Intelligence) very much at the heart of this TV, a huge range of control options become available. Compatible with Google Home, Amazon Echo and Apple’s HomePod, your smart speaker can be used to voice control the TV. For a seamless AV experience, use with one of LG’s own smart speakers. If you prefer smartphone to voice control, the TV is also compatible with LG TV Plus and Smart ThinQ apps, as well as Apple AirPlay 2.

All the streaming services you need including Apple TV Plus and Disney+
This smart TV is ready for the rapidly expanding range of top quality TV streaming services. All your favourites are there, including the BBC iPlayer, Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video and Now TV. New for 2020 are the much anticipated Apple TV Plus and Disney+ – giving you a wider range of premium (paid for) TV streaming services than ever. Please note: ITV, Ch4 and Ch5 catch up services not available on this TV at this time.

Stylish when off, totally engaging when on, the LG 55UN81006LB is a top TV to have around 24/7.

Please note, this Smart TV features third party Apps. These Apps may be modified or withdrawn at any time. There may also be a delay in launching some of the featured Apps. Catch-up TV Apps may vary by region. The function and availability of apps is not covered by the manufacturer’s or Richer Sounds’ guarantee.

Unlike other makers which means you can point & type. Fast to get web pages & apps etc. With quickness & ease also it was easy to set up Google home. So I can speak what I want to see on the TV very fast great. Also the TV has a central stand making. It easy to put on a TV stand unlike other wide TV stands. I highly recommend this TV top marks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Basic 4K tv The “smart tv” is not compatible with expected catch up apps. IPlayer is the only one that works. The lack of an ambient light sensor means you have to manually change the display settings between day time and night time viewing

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good for well-lit scenes only I bought this TV on Black Friday but I've now booked a return and will be getting an OLED instead due to one issue which comes down to the technology used. For the price the specs on this TV are decent and the image quality on well lit scenes is very good. I watched 1917 in 4k HDR and the picture quality was unreal; until any dark scenes that is. Due to the nature of IPS panels the dark scenes were atrocious, most details were lost in a greyish mush (for lack of a technical term!). To make matters worse there was signifcant light bleed on the top right and bottom left of the panel. Anytime a dark scene was shown this glow was present and impossible to ignore, even in a well lit room. LG support were contacted and said that this is expected and within their specification, hence why I am returning the TV. If you wish to watch films I would avoid this TV unless you only watch bright animated things. For daytime TV or other viewing this TV is good though. I can't comment on how it is for sport as I didn't watch any. Other positives include the sound which I thought was decent and the design and centre stand of the TV. Ultimately I'd avoid this TV unless you are able to ignore light bleed and don't want to watch anything with dark scenes
