Received an email form the Richer Sounds VIP club mentioning the above TV with the promotional box saying:

"UP970 4K Blu-ray player included with this TV, worth £249. Ask in-store or via Telesales for details"

Both the TV and 4K player handle HDR10 and Dolby Vision so could be a good deal if that's a deal clincher for you.

TV description:
Always the best picture in the house, with LG's Nano Cell technology
LG's Nano Cell technology uses tiny particles to reproduce a more accurate picture. The technology offers a wider viewing angle, giving everyone in the room the best possible picture quality. Nano Cell tech also aims to reduce on-screen light glow, improving the picture quality even in brightly lit rooms.

The widest range of HDR support yet with Active HDR
Taking HDR beyond any of its rivals, the LG 55SJ950V is the most flexible HDR-equipped TV to date. Advanced HDR by Technicolor offers reference levels of image and colour accuracy. As well as Advanced HDR, this 55" LG TV also offers decoding for HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision. HDR10 is widely used on UHD gaming consoles from Sony and Microsoft. HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma HDR) is a broadcast and user generated standard format that is set to become the standard for transmitting 4K signals.

Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
Dolby Vision optimises the HDR format to give quite simply the sharpest, most accurate images possible. Dolby vision-equipped TVs, like this LG, can decode both generic HDR content and content that's specifically been encoded in Dolby Vision - a leading format in Hollywood and cinemas. Dolby Vision also adjusts the picture to take full advantage of each display's characteristics and presents an optimized picture for each scene in specially mastered content.

Premium sound by Harmon Kardon
Developed in conjunction with AV and Hi-Fi experts Harman Kardon, this 55 inch TV's audio system offers a step-up from the average 'thin' flatscreen TV sound. With built-in subwoofers and a powerful 40 watt amp, the 55SJ950 punches harder the typical flat panel TV.

Sleek design
A strong contender for LG's best-looking LED TV to date, the 55SJ950 matches the style of LG's glorious OLED TVs. The super-slim panel is one of the thinnest to date for an LED TV. The white rear panel contrasts with the super-thin black frame with metallic trim, making the 55SJ950 a stunning focus point in your room.

webOS 3.5 - the critics' choice
Widely acclaimed as one of the best smart TV interfaces, LG's webOS 3.5 operating system is more refined than ever. Updates to the hardware means that webOS is 40% faster than before, making using it a seamless experience. WebOS 3.5 uses superimposed icons, folders and side bars for clear and easy access to smart content without leaving the current screen image. New features for webOS 3.5 include 'Magic Link', 'Magic Sound Tuning' and 360-degress video.

Magic made better
Following on from previous 'Magic' technology, webOS 3.5 now has the ability to record 'Magic Zoom', letting you record to USB highlighted sections of the screen. 'Magic Link' gives additional information, such as the actors in the scene and related YouTube videos. 'Magic Sound Tuning' uses a microphone built into the remote to optimise the TV's sound, according to your room's acoustics.

See the bigger picture with 360-degrees video
Now you can see the bigger picture with 360-degrees video. When watching suitable video, this feature lets you use the remote to track 360-degrees from left to right. It also allows you to 'look' up and down and even zoom in and out. Simply put, it's the closest thing yet to actually being there!

Freeview Play for catch-up TV
Freeview Play makes catch-up TV easy. Find programmes from BBC iPlayer, the ITV Hub, All4 and Demand 5 sitting alongside over 60TV Channels and up to 15 HD channels. Simply scroll back in your TV guide to watch shows you missed from the last 7 days. Just make sure your TV is connected to the internet and you're good to go.

Smart TV that includes all your favourite apps
The LG 55SJ950V comes packed with useful apps that look great on the big screen. The BBC iPlayer, YouTube, Now TV, Demand 5 and Netflix are just some of the VOD (Video On Demand) services that come as standard with the LG. There's also easy access to music sites like Spotify and Napster plus social sites Facebook and Twitter.

DLNA and Wi-Fi make this TV part of your home network
DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatibility means the 55SJ950V will seamlessly blend with your home network. With DLNA you can stream music or video from your laptop, PC or NAS drive. Thanks to built-in Wi-Fi, even connecting up is a breeze.

The ultimate in style and performance, LG's 55SJ950V is a reference point for other LED TVs to follow.

Proper 10bit maybe ?

Better buying an Oled at that price
Why get this over the oled?
That's an awful lot of money for LED...
why, an OLED is not much more... ouch cold today
lol every comment is why not an oled,
55sj850v is currently £979 at currys, supports HDR10 and Dolby vision and perfect for gaming 15ms rate. It's basically the same as the 950v so i'd strongly recommend saving 500 qwid. I've got the 850v and picture is flawless and you also get 6months premium netflix free with it atm.
Terrible value, it's not OLED. A B7V is practically same price and based on some recent offers is actually cheaper than this. Stone cold.
Wouldn't touch any TV over £1000 that isn't an OLED.
Old tech 55" for £1500??... Let me join the pummelling!

And will anyone actually use a Blu-ray player in the near future. I look at my dvd collection and think they'll be going to the charity shop within a year.

Everything's online.

Once OLED is established and correctly priced it will be the end of Lcd on the high end market.
Well that went down like a Le(a)d Zeppelin..lol

Anyhoo - I'm off to get a B7 anyway..
