    Product Overview

    Gather your friends for the big game in front of this gorgeous 55 inch LG LED TV. Thanks to the crystal-clear 4K Ultra HD resolution, the beautiful game will look even better, with upscaling giving HD and Full HD content a visual boost too. Plus, Technicolor Advanced HDR fills your screen with vibrant, lifelike colours that’ll bring you closer to the pitch. You won’t have to jostle for position either, since Nano Cell technology means you’ll get a good view no matter where in the room you’re sat. And it connects to the internet too, letting you check any results or watch matches with catch-up and streaming services. Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant come built-in too, so you can speak into the Magic Remote to control the TV, as well as other smart tech around your home, without looking away from the field.

    We want you to fully enjoy your new TV, so please be careful when unpacking it – pull it out of the box using the edges so that you don’t damage the screen. If you need to return your TV for any reason, we just ask that you don’t pack the plug in front of the screen as it could damage the TV in transit.

    Features we love

    Every spot is the sweet spot

    This TV boasts LG’s Nano Cell technology. It offers a much wider viewing angle without any of the colours becoming faded or washed out. So no matter where you’re sat in the room, you’ll still get a sharp and vibrant picture that’s packed with colourful detail.

    The most realistic blockbusters

    Enjoy a brighter, vivid screen thanks to Nanocell technology. The nanoparticles work by taking any dull colours and making them more vibrant, giving you images that are true-to life. This means that all the scenes from your favourite blockbusters and shows will look as realistic as possible.

    Get the cinema feel at home

    Enjoy a stunning audio and visual experience with the 2nd generation a7 intelligent processor. The AI technology analyses each frame and optimises the sharpness, brightness and clarity, giving you flawless visuals in all of your films. At the same time, it also tweaks the audio so that it’ll sound just as good in rooms of all different shapes and sizes. So wherever you decide to place this TV, you’ll still get that full cinematic feeling.

    Superb Dolby sound and picture quality

    Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of whatever you’re watching with Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision. Cutting-edge Dolby Atmos recreates sound in 3D, so you can hear it from all directions, while Dolby Vision increases the contrast between light and dark, to create a vivid picture that’s bursting with colour. This creates an outstanding cinematic experience, for more memorable movie nights and amazing match days.

    Beautiful scenery in your front room

    Let Gallery Mode liven up your front room with exotic scenery from all around the world. To use this feature, you’ll simply need to ask using the voice controls and watch as it flips through a library of breathtaking landscapes that have been uploaded seasonally by TripAdvisor. So, when the TV isn’t showing the latest game or film, it’ll still look amazing mounted on your wall.

    A TV that waits for no one

    WebOS adds a whole lot of convenience and colour to your TV’s menus. All the smart features pop up at the bottom of the screen in attractively vibrant shades, and thanks to the powerful processor, you can flick between apps quickly while still bingeing a boxset. So, if you remember that a new series of your favourite show has just launched, it’ll only be two ticks before you’re sucked into the action.

    You only need to ask

    LG ThinQ AI lets you control the TV, and do a whole host of other clever things too, using just your voice. It has Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa built-in, so you’ll just need to speak into the Magic Remote (included) for full control of the TV and other smart devices in your home. So whether you want to dim the lights for movie night, or you see an advert for shampoo and want to add it to a shopping list, you can simply ask.

    Amazon Alexa built in

    This product has Amazon Alexa built-in. Just download the Alexa app on your smartphone or tablet and you’ll be able to get set up easily. Then, you’ll be able to control it with just the power of your voice, either by talking directly to it or through your Amazon Echo speaker.

    Pleased to a high degree

    5/5
    I don't watch Live TV so this is simply plugged into the wall with no other cables or devices. It sounds great on its own and looks great, both picture and frame-wise. Airplay 2 is a real win.
