  • HDR: Dolby Vision / HDR10 / Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG)
  • Catch-up TV & 4K streaming
  • Freeview HD
  • HDMI 2.0b x 4

Fire TV Edition

All your favourite Prime shows and movies are just moments away on the JVC LT-55CF890 Fire TV Edition 55" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV. The popular Fire TV smart platform is built-in, so it's easy to find something new with personalised recommendations.

There's plenty to keep the whole family happy with Prime Video, Netflix, YouTube, Discovery, BBC iPlayer, and many more.

Alexa voice remote

Catching up on your latest box set has never been easier – just pick up the remote and ask. Alexa makes it easy to search popular channels and control your TV.

And just like a smart speaker, you can ask Alexa for weather updates, sports scores, the latest headlines, and control smart devices (such as lights or thermostat) around your home.

4K HDR

Everything looks better in 4K – with four times the resolution of Full HD, you'll marvel at the detail and colour definition.

Plus, with HDR content you'll see a greater depth of colour and brilliant brightness for a more realistic viewing experience – those BBC documentaries have never looked so good.

Any reviews on this? Anyone got one?
So this is TV with fire OS?????
Heat added
Can anyone who's bought a JVC 40/49/50 Fire TV confirm if you actually can pause live TV (perhaps with a USB memory stick is inserted).

Currys on Amazon product Q&A have replied to questions on this saying you cannot pause live TV, and neither can you record live TV from the EPG. These would be major omissions from a smart TV. I'm hoping Currys have got this wrong and an owner can confirm. Thx
Interesting. Just wondering given that Fire is a fork of Android if there is any advantage in a set like this over a pure Android TV (which may be more flexible). I know Roku released Roku TVs in the USA but don't think they made much of a dent in the market.

I've got a fire stick upstairs - find the UI annoying though as it is so Amazon-focused. It gets better as you use it as stuff appears in "Recents" at the top of the page, but Istill honestly don't like it.Amazon are also prone to dropping support for apps - normally can be overcome with sideloading - but still a pain. Just personal preference for me - not knocking the telly.

Personally I think Fire OS may be better, I have a Sony Android TV and I'm unable to even use some of the catch-up app as I don't have a terrestrial aerial (No reception) to activate youview and the catch-up TV is linked to that. I also feel that the TV version of the Play Store is very limited. I now have I fire stick plugged in for using apps

That's a fair comment. Mine is a Sony too and it does niggle me that you have to go through the YouView menu to access the catch-up apps in their natural form. If you are internet only you can't do that so its a legitimate niggle Suspect its Sony rather than Android though as from memory my Shield TV (now gone) could run the "normal" catch-up apps.

The Hisense Roku TVhas recently been launched over here, and is available through Argos here - I'd be interested to see if anyone has bought one as I've yet to see a review.

Interesting - I like the Roku boxes, but have a feeling they will get left behind by other platforms unless they open up a little (they've been doing the opposite for the last few years).
Now £349, make it happen @apur32

My fire stick is probably the best bit of tech I have ever purchased.
Easy to tinker with and sideload some tasty apps.
Merry Christmas Apur... Enjoy the sprouts.

Has anyone managed to get a 4k HDMI input working on this TV ?
Plugged my son's Xbox one S in with a suitable HDMI cable but the Xbox doesn't identify the TV as 4k / HDR compatible ?

Happy with it generally... The OS is a bit slow to get going but once it's upto speed it's not bad .. especially for a budget TV...
Contrast is bright straight out of the box so needs a bit of adjusting... Alexa works great too... You can't go wrong for your money...even if it turns out the HDMI ports don't take a 4k input.
Thanks for checking for me... Appreciate it

I have the same problem as you re the Xbox one s. I'll do some digging and post back here if I get a solution. That aside, first impressions are good.

Fixed it
On the TV under input advanced settings set the Xbox input HDMI mode to 2.0, then on XBox follow the instructions about setting the video input to auto on the Xbox support site
beta.support.xbox.com/hel…one

The Xbox 4k and HDR settings should then be available.

Thank you
How's everyone getting on with tweaking the picture settings? Mines now pretty near perfect on well lit scenes but goes a bit fuzzy & blocky on dimly lit scenes.
Can anyone help this guy out See here
For anyone thinking of buying this TV who stumble across this thread, here is my honest opinion.
The picture quality is great once you tweak the settings to your own personal taste. The software is awful IMHO and really lets the TV down. The live TV (Freeview) is very disappointing, with sluggish response times and randomly losing channels requiring a rescan. It also intermittently pops up with "bad signal" despite me having near 100% signal quality/strength. It also has an annoying habit of switching itself on at random times - including in the middle of the night. If they got the software right it would be a great TV.
