Services Stand Installation, Disposal

    We want you to enjoy your new TV as soon as possible. Rather than messing about with cables and following loads of steps in the instruction manual, let us set it up for you. We'll attach the new TV to the stand that it comes with. We'll also tune it in, set up any Smart features and connect up all your existing kit. We’ll even take away the bulky packaging.

    We’ll happily take away your old TV for you and recycle it. All we ask is that it’s unplugged and ready to go. The fee for this service relates to the cost of taking your old TV away on our van rather than the recycling service. If you've paid for installation, we will recycle your old TV free of charge.

Questions & Answers

Features we love

Superb contrast with Perfect Black

Experience stunning contrast with Perfect Black technology. This means that pixels don’t dim to create blacks, but turn off completely, so no light is shown. This true black colour highlights hidden shades you’d miss with even a little bit of illumination. So you’ll get awesome visuals that feel even more life-like.

Perfect Colour delivers lifelike shades

Open your eyes to a world of colour thanks to spectacular OLED technology. Each pixel is able to replicate millions of shades – highlighting amazing details against the canvas created by the Perfect Black background. The contrast makes the vibrant colours pop, and brings the picture to life in a way no other LED TV can. So you can enjoy your films with breath-taking visuals, putting you at the heart of the action.

Supports plenty of HDR formats

HDR takes viewing to the next level, delivering incredibly vivid, life-like colour. By adjusting the brightness of colours depending on the scene, it provides subtler gradients and more detail, so every frame is super-dynamic. LG’s Cinema HDR supports a variety of HDR formats, including Dolby Vision and HDR10, so you’re guaranteed a more realistic picture onscreen.

Immersive action with Perfect Clarity

Enjoy a crisp, clear picture with Perfect Clarity. The OLED pixels have a response speed over one thousand times faster than LED, so they can keep up with fast-paced action without any blurring. So whether you’re watching a heated football match or the latest war film, you’ll be able to enjoy a more immersive and realistic experience.

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.

Certified 4K Ultra HD with 4K upscaling

With the Ultra HD certification, your movies and TV shows are sure to look absolutely incredible. This impressive badge of honour means this product has been certified to meet high standards set by Eurofins to guarantee it offers true Ultra HD quality, including amazing colour and clarity. So, your favourite wildlife documentaries and action-packed blockbusters will look better than they ever have before.

Never say Never

Was a bit sceptical about having a new telly let alone an OLED! We’ve only had ours not longer than 2 years which we also bought here with AO but man didn’t we made the right decision to go rogue! Aah the details with its sound and pictures is beyond my imagination, the best product my family has ever owned so far when it’s comes to entertainment. We also bought SK6 LG (can’t afford SK9 duh) sound bar to boost its output which I totally recommend if you love a bit of home theatre in your home. So please with our early xmas present! Thank you x

Lovely TV, great service receiving it

I’d previously bought an OLED 55” tv and after 6 months, it had developed a random fault, which the seller took back my tv and refunded me... it had not deterred me from getting another, but I somehow decided to go for just LED and up in size to 65” Was a bad move... the quality between LED & OLED, is miles apart!! I was sorely disappointed with my decision, and ended up returning that tv too! Found an OLED on the AO website, at a good price, and placed my order!! I’m the happiest person again having OLED hanging on my wall... If you don’t buy TVs very often, then just get the best and do it right the first time!! OLED is stunning... non hd programs look like hd, and hd programs look just great!! It’s like having a window in your lounge!! Thanks AO for making it so seamless, and V12 finance for making it more palitable!!! Great job

Amazing picture

Nice size at 55inch, pictures are excellent on hd and then to another level on 4K. I’ve seen no tv produce black like this one does. Very happy sky sports is great in 4K. Only niggle in this set is the speaker system is a bit weak. Looking to purchase a sound bar now.

LG Oled TV

Absolutely fantastic, picture quality exceptional, easy to use. Also bought a LG sound bar which just took the sound to another level.


The TV is excellent quality, the picture is crisp and it’s very easy to use.. sound is actually pretty good too!

Worth the Hassle

So I bought this TV without discussing it with my wife. Why would you, I knew she would say no, so do I :- 1. Have a discussion, she says no and then I go and buy it anyway. 2. Accept that she said no and go without. 3. Buy it, have the argument and still have the TV. It is worth every minute of silent treatment and general huffiness, the picture almost looks 3d with its clarity and when its plugged into a PS4 Pro (another argument.... will I ever learn, apparently not! ;-D ) it takes gaming to another level. Would I recommend, absolutely! AO.com, as always, spot on price and delivery.
