    For eyes and pixels that light up

    Bring the cinema home all week long with OLED technology. Each pixel lights up or switches off on its own, rather than being backlit like an LED, so all those deliciously long fight scenes will have flawless colour and contrast. Not to mention, feeling completely real and unique. That means you can say goodbye to ducking and diving to get the perfect viewing angle, instead you’ll be trying to avoid the uppercuts and knock outs.

    The ultimate piece of art

    Make your new TV feel pretty as a picture with the built-in, flush fit wall mount. The design of it is not only slim but clever, too. It’s made to sit on your wall as easy as a picture frame, and if you’ve never hung anything straight in your life, the paper guide will help you through the whole thing. So, sit back and enjoy the ooh’s and aah’s with all that extra space.

    The perfect TV to take down the competition

    Don’t just play your games, live them. This LG TV is built for pixel-perfect performance, squeezing every last drop of detail out of blockbuster titles for an epic 4K experience. They’ll even look more realistic. How? By cutting out the lag and making movement really smooth with a 1 millisecond response time. And if you want to see how the competition does it, just hop on over to Twitch using webOS to watch some live broadcasts.

    Tons of choice

    You’ll never be bored again with all the stuff this LG TV has to offer. The clever built-in webOS platform makes it easy to browse all your favourite streaming and catch-up services. Fancy a classic? Head over to Disney+ and re-live your childhood. Or check out Netflix’s newest edge-of-your-seat boxset. And if that’s not enough, there’s also Prime Video, NOW TV and Freeview Play to choose from. That’s a lot of content.

    Please note, some streaming apps need a paid subscription to use.

    A screen like no other

    LG’s OLED evo tech in the G1 TV is really something. It builds upon the already incredible OLED technology – which has millions of tiny pixels that can light themselves up, doing away with the backlight LED models use – but adds new materials to the screen plus optimised processing for an even brighter and sharper picture. It’s so realistic, you’ll feel like you’re looking out of a window.

    Bring the stadium into your living room

    If you love your footie, then you’ll want to catch every single pass, tackle and (missed) penalty. That’s where LG’s OLED Motion comes into play. It uses some clever technical wizardry and self-lit pixels to dramatically reduce blurring, giving you a much clearer view of the action. That means you’ll never have to second guess a foul, or wonder whether someone was offside. It’s so lifelike, you’ll feel like you’re really there – who needs those overpriced match tickets?

    Make movie nights better than ever

    When it comes to delivering a great picture, α9 processors kick things up a notch. They study whatever’s on, working with the OLED pixels for breath-taking images that make everything from modern blockbusters to golden oldies look crystal-clear. Audio is given a boost too, because they can pick out dialogue and sound effects separately to balance everything out – no more constantly adjusting the volume.

    Latest tv from LG

    All round impressive t.v. Excellent picture especially in 4K and HD. Can't really comment on quality of sound from the t.v as connected to an external sound bar. 1st LG product and impressed with quality.

    Superb OLED TV

    This is the real deal, an absolutely superb OLED TV. We had it professionally mounted and it’s like having a mini cinema in the living room. 4K is absolutely gorgeous and HD looks fantastic as well. The OS has been updated in the time we’ve had the TV (a few days). The remote is slightly annoying (I keep hitting the voice assistant button accidentally and the central navigation circle can be a bit hit and miss). I will say to start with I did have some issues looking at this TV. I have an astigmatism and found that I was straining my eyes and getting headaches on my first few viewings. There are adjustments you can make on different settings (SDR/HDR in my case) and I experimented a little to get the settings which we were right for me. There is an option to limit blue light from the TV which I recommend. In addition if you have some issues with the “soap opera” effect (where things don’t quite look right when watching a film and there’s fast moving action), there are settings you can play with to resolve this. Overall it’s a beautiful TV and I can’t recommend it enough.

    Very impressed with the product and pleased that it's actually much easier to operate than I thought it would be!

    * OLED55G16LA was at the higher price between 06/10/2021 and 10/11/2021.

    Intervening prices between the "was" and the "now" price have applied. Intervening prices may have been lower than the current price due to our price match promise or other promotions during the intervening period.

This means our prices could drop further, or potentially reduce again once a promotional event ends. If our price drops, or you do find what you’re looking for cheaper elsewhere, we’ll offer our price match promise. See terms and conditions.
