Boosted by NanoCell technology, the LG 55SM8060PLC delivers class-leading picture quality.

NanoCell technology – incredible picture quality for everyone in the room
Using uniformly sized, NanoCell, display particles, this LG 55 inch TV gives enhanced colour accuracy and the ability to produce wider viewing angles with less colour distortion. This means that the colour accuracy remains virtually unchanged over a 60-degree viewing angle. Finally, everyone in the room can enjoy the highest quality images.

Enhanced contrast with Local Dimming
Making the most of its NanoCell tech, the 55SM8050PLC features Local Dimming. This gives enhanced contrast, with the ability to precisely control the darkest and lightest sections of the images. What this means for you is greater realism and most natural images possible from an LED screen.

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 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 Netflix, YouTube, Amazon and the BBC iPlayer. 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.

Let everyone in the room see the best image, with the LG 55SM8050PLC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound quality is very good. Picture quality very good, sound spot on, I can get i player and Britbox which were "musts" as we can only access TV via the internet. Easy to set up even for an old duffer like me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great picture Very pleased with this TV. Great picture. Smart features easy to set up. I bought the LG after looking at the information on rtings about the viewing angle as I have one sofa to the side of the tv and the picture is still good at a wide angle. Everyone says that the sound on these new tvs is not good because the speakers are on the back, but to be honest I though the sound was pretty good! I have connected a 5.1 audio system now. The audio outputs are optical and HDMI/ARC only (no phono or jack outputs) so you just need to check that your audio amplifer has the right inputs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Initial Set up not for the faint hearted Bought this 55” TV to replace/upsize from Samsung 43” unless you are tech savvy it’s not easy to set up all instructions are hidden within the tv so need to “set up “ before you can access the info! Wish I’d stayed with Samsung

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality, easy setup, tons of features Almost a week after buying and am very impressed with the quality of the picture, sounds and lost of features. Viewing at an angle loses very little of the quality and the boys are loving the quality when playing split screen Fortnite! Setup was very easy and despite being new to LG tvs the interface is pretty straight forward to use, even with the magic wand remote which works so much better than I thought it would. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice TV. This was an upgrade from my Hisense TV ( that I bought from Richer Sounds) It is a good TV and does everything that I need it to. There are plenty of functions and it works very well. The service from Richer Sounds is genuinely unsurpassed. I emplore their customer service, it is outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great spec, picture, features and price Our last main TV developed a fault, so a quick search of new model 55" TV was underway. We settled on the LG as we have them in all but one bedrooms currently, and they have all performed very very well. The 6 year warranty is a blessing when buying from richer sounds, a must in our household! This new nano cell screen type is excellent, the colours are very natural, picture is pixel perfect, and it also sounds way better than the Panasonic Viera it has replaced. The UI is also way better on the LG, and is already loaded with all the apps you can expect. A bargain in our opinion, almost only a third what the Viera cost us 5 years ago, but a notably better TV. Highly recommended
