The LG UB820V brings all the detail of 4K Ultra HD to your living room. It comes loaded with Smart features like catch up TV and Freeview HD to keep you entertained. With a superior frame rate, fast moving action like sports and gaming come into their own. Along with an overhauled interface and voice/motion control this TV is as easy to use as your smartphone or tablet.

4K Ultra HD

This technology gives you four times the detail of regular Full HD, so images are sharper and more vivid. LG’s IPS LED panel pushes this further by improving colour contrast and balancing brightness levels. As a bonus, this TV can also boost regular HD to Ultra HD - bringing all of your media up to date.

BBC iPlayer, Skype and more

As this is a smart TV, there’s always a game to play or browsing to be done. BBC iPlayer keeps you up to date with your programmes, while access to Facebook, Twitter and more will keep you in touch with friends and family. Built-in Wi-Fi makes it simple to get connected.

Intuitive interface

You can now enjoy Smart TV the way it’s supposed to be, simple and intuitive, bringing together all your favourite catch-up TV, Movies, Sport and Music services.
Voice and gesture control
Using the Magic Remote, this TV will respond to the wave of a hand or the sound of your voice. You can also use voice search to track down channels or browse manually without shuffling through guides.

Freeview HD

No subscriptions, no set top boxes, just up to 50 digital channels - many in HD - for you to enjoy. There are dozens of digital radio stations on offer too. The clear programme guide makes it simple to keep up with what’s on next.
Perfect partners
With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller, choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Soundbars enhance your TVs sound quality and add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.

So about 200Hz in reality then?

Wow, that's awful.

That's the max for all 4K screens at the moment as far as I'm aware. Don't be confused by all the TVs advertising '200Hz' or whatever, it's just interpolation. Actual framerate is 60Hz max for 4K at the moment

why would you want to get a 42" 4k TV, unless using it as a monitor for your PC? It only makes sense if the screen size is 55inch +!

1080p for most living rooms will do just fine. Save yourself some money and get a 1080p TV.

Still a good price though.

I've got this TV. It's very good. Saw House of Cards in 4k was fine and noticeable in difference of quality.

Not saying this isn't a good price but if it's like other LG TVs I've viewed then the quality won't be very good.

Had my heart set on an lg TV for the bedroom and on paper it sounded great but when I viewed it the picture was rubbish compared to the samsungs sets.

Also the on demand channels are limited and it seems only samsungs have all the main ones such as BBC iplayer,itv player,all 4,demand 5

Amazing deal have as much heat as you want

Why do people keep saying this? My room would not accomadate a 55" screen(_;) I've seen 4K up close and I can tell the difference between that and 1080p at less than 55" which looks superb by the way, so stop touting ****

Are you blind? Why would I use 42" screen for my computer? I have got 27" Mac thats way too big for me. This TV has got very very good reviews so I'm happy with my purchase.

lol at not needing more than 1080p below 55 inch, i've never heard so much rubbish. Don't talk about things you clearly have NO idea about.

I dread to think what you'd say about QHD phones & tablets.

Getting very tempted to click on the "buy now" button! I've only read good reviews on this tv

1080p all the way

Why would you upgrade your 1080p with another 1080p? Future is UHD new channels with UHD new movies with UHD. If you have UHD TV you can watch them without problem or stick with 1080p and watch 4 times less quality. I have got note 4 can record 4K videos it would be amazing for me to watch my videos on my TV which I couldn't watch at all with my other 3D Smart TV. I always think ahead I wouldnt waste my money with another 1080p TV.

People keep saying it because it's true. You can see the difference up close. Almost no-one watches a TV up close. Looking at TVs in a shop, there's rarely room to look at them from very far. At normal TV viewing distances, normal human eyesight can not see the difference on a 42" screen. If you sit two feet away, or use it as a monitor, you can.

Thank you! Someone did his homework

is it good for gaming?

Good question. More importantly is it good for premier league football? An "expert" in Currys advised to avoid at all costs, as the motion will blur and is just not quick enough. It's an honest dumb question this, so honest answers will be well received! I just want to buy a TV... all these options are draining the life out of me!

I can't believe your chart. I'm sitting 13 ft away from a 40" TV right now. To say I wouldn't notice the difference between 480 and 720 is ludicrous, let alone 480 and 1080

the thing is your source. I suspect you will be looking at old recordings in 480. the point of the chart is that at 14 foot if you had a 480p TV you would be on the cusp of seeing the difference to 720p. you certainly wouldn't be able to see between 720p and 1080p. we have a 32" 720p in the bedroom and from12 foot away I can't tell the difference between that and 1080p. it was a top of the range Panasonic 720p though. as I've always said it comes done to the quality of the rest of the screen.

It's not "his" chart. It's a chart illustrating the simple facts discussed in the article. Your ability to discern greater detail at further distance might silly mean you've got better than average vision. Nothing to be incredulous about.

*simply

Had mine for about 6 months and love it. Netflix 4k is fantastic. Upscaling lesser resolution great. My only real gripes:
1. No codec (yet) to view your own HEVC-265 videos
2. Home screen is very randomly organised
