*** Upgrade in style for the perfect view for every angle ****

NanoCell technology – incredible picture quality for everyone in the room
Using uniformly sized, NanoCell, display particles, this LG 55 inch TV gives enhanced colour accuracy and the ability to produce wider viewing angles with less colour distortion. This means that the colour accuracy remains virtually unchanged over a 60-degree viewing angle. Finally, everyone in the room can enjoy the highest quality images.

Enhanced contrast with Local Dimming
Making the most of its NanoCell tech, the 55SM8050PLC features Local Dimming. This gives enhanced contrast, with the ability to precisely control the darkest and lightest sections of the images. What this means for you is greater realism and most natural images possible from an LED screen.

LG’s Active HDR gives stunning detail
LG’s Active HDR analyses the picture signal, frame-by-frame to give optimum colour and contrast. This means stunning detail and contrast with each and every scene – making it ideal for movies and gaming. The LG includes support for HDR10 and HLG. 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 seen as the standard for transmitting 4K signals.

AI TV for control your way
With AI (Artificial Intelligence) very much at the heart of this TV, a huge range of control options become available. Compatible with Google Home, Amazon Echo and Apple’s HomePod, your smart speaker can be used to voice control the TV. For a seamless AV experience, use with one of LG’s own smart speakers. If you prefer smartphone to voice control, the TV is also compatible with LG TV Plus and Smart ThinQ apps, as well as Apple AirPlay 2.

All the streaming services you need including Apple TV Plus and Disney+
This smart TV is ready for the rapidly expanding range of top quality TV streaming services. All your favourites are there, including Netflix, YouTube, Amazon and the BBC iPlayer. New for 2020 are the much anticipated Apple TV Plus and Disney+ – giving you a wider range of premium (paid for) TV streaming services than ever.

Let everyone in the room see the best image, with the LG 55SM8050PLC.

yes but can get 6y warranty @ richer sounds. 🏻
Is this the best 55" for this sort of money?

Same question! I see the Sony Bravia KD55XF9005 has hit £700 a few times, is that better then the LGs? 700 GBP is my limit I think.
Is nano cell their version of QLED?

Bought Sony 55xf9005 from Costco for £491 last week, it’s a great tv but not good for hdr or Dolby vision if u watch movies on Netflix or amazon, too much blooming & dim pic in Dolby vision on Netflix

Oh darn, so what's the options for:
* 55-65"
* Great blacks, I watch horror and sci-fi
* Low reflections, not a killer but I have a bright external light source and want to avoid closing blinds in the day time.

Not important:
* OS, heck i would pay extra for a TV that just managed hdmi-arc, flipped on my soundbar and nvidia shield without cancelling/going through sources with no smart
* Sound, I have a Samsung sound bar
* Gaming, I have a pc and can hook my switch and PS4 to the pc.

I had hoped 500-700, but can extend to catch a unicorn.

I had terrible experience with the LG os keep switching sources from hdmi to its only crappy system, so something that plays with a Nvidia shield and Samsung soundbar is good.

Samsung 55Q80 r is a great tv wit anti reflective screen & great blacks as it has full array local dimming, Samsung don’t support Dolby vision that’s the only negative thing

Would people say this is worth the extra £180 than the 7050plc? If so what factor? Just picture?
Hi I've been looking at the lg sm8600 but the 49" richer sounds currently have this model for 549 but there is a code for £20 making it 529. Does anybody know if this tv is better than 49" version of the sm8050plc.

What's the £20 off code, can't find it on hotukdeals.

Hi the code is for the 49sm8600plc and is rstv20. I was debating whether to get the model from this deal or the 8600. Went for the 8600 in the end.

Is nano cell their version of QLED?


No it’s not any sort of Oled it’s just another IPS technology they’ve made. I think it has better colours and support for 1080@120Hz but I’m not sure about it in terms of colours (Wether it’s any better)
I'm also interested in how this compares to the sm8600. I have that TV already and the colours and blacks are fantastic for a non-Oled tv
Can anyone please confirm this tv has Freesat? LG say it has a satellite FTA tuner but no confirmation that it has access to the Freesat epg
