Cinema-like picture

You don't have to go to the cinema to enjoy great picture quality. Stock up on the popcorn and settle in for blockbuster with the LG 55UK6470PLC 55" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV.

The unique IPS 4K display delivers vibrant and vivid colours with brilliant detail. Appreciate the beauty of the natural world in a Nat Geo documentary, or put on Spielberg's latest flick and revel in the details. What's more, you get a great view, no matter where you're sitting.

4K Active HDR

HDR delivers improved contrast and colours so all your HDR10 and HLG content looks great. LG have taken it a step further on the UK6470 with adaptable advanced HDR which masters each scene for pinpoint picture reproduction. Even regular content gets upgraded to HDR-like quality – your soaps never looked so good.

Smart webOS

Forget complaining about there being nothing on TV. LG's webOS is packed with apps to keep the whole family happy. Catch that must-see drama series from ITV, settle down for a Netflix marathon in 4K, or rent a movie from the Sky Store.

And with Freeview Play you can access content straight from your TV guide. Simply scroll back up to seven days and see what show's you've missed. No more remembering to record Eastenders before you head out the door.

ThinQ AI & Google Assistant

With a compatible Magic Remote (sold separately) you can make your living room smart. ThinQ AI is LG's voice command platform that works in sync with your other ThinQ smart devices, even those from other manufacturers. Ask your TV to play a film on Netflix, switch on the news, or turn up the volume.

And with Google Assistant built-in you can do even more. Find out what's in your calendar, how long your commute will take, check the weather, control your smart home devices, and much more. All you need to do is ask.

Effortless installation

For setup without the squabbles, our Team Knowhow experts can connect your new TV to your Blu-ray player, sound bar, and other devices. They'll even get you online so you can put your feet up and start watching straight away. Pass the popcorn.

Essential extras

Want your TV wall mounted? No problem. We've got brackets that tilt, swivel, or fix your TV in place for the best viewing spot in the house. Alternatively, browse our range of TV stands – we've got enough designs to keep even the pickiest interior designer happy.

Avoid the disappointment of getting your shiny new telly home and realising you don't have the cable you need to connect your games console or Blu-ray player. Sandstrom Gold Series HDMI cables support all resolutions and come with a reassuring lifetime guarantee.

I'm kind of torn with this, because LG is a well known brand, so I expect it to be good, but £399 for a 55 inch 4k? That's ridiculously cheap, what's wrong with this? And how would it compare to the likes of a Samsung NU8000?

Just got this today for my dad and set it up for him. Hes old school just wants a telly to watch freeview on it but using the occasional YouTube. Not fussed about HDR, gaming etc...

For a cheap telly I have to say... picture, sound and features are great so far.
I bought this to replace my 43" LG and I think it's great. I was wanting the 65" but sadly it won't fit where I need it to.

Just watched the new Attenborough series on Netflix and the picture quality was outstanding.

The Web is software is a bit slow but it does the job and I've never had any WiFi connection issues with any of my LG tvs.

For the price I think it's hard to beat.
I have this tv from a while ago and whilst it is really good the built in TV guide is absolute ass. Takes forever to load and hard to navigate.
Same lame panel as my 55uk6500. So poor.

what's the difference between the two? worth the extra £50 for the 6500?

I think the main difference is local dimming on the 6500 and 4xHDMI. Also the 6470 is direct lit where 6500 is edge only.

The viewing angles are comical on the 6500, maybe the direct lit 6470 will be better. I also had the panel replaced after 2 months due to dead pixels. LG used to be great but this range seems poor, my LG OLED needs a new panel too.
So confused by the comments, I want a new tv for the bedroom but this thread seems full of people who seem or think they know what they're talking about bashing this tv. 904 degrees is hot and less than £400 seems a good price but these naysayers are putting me off...

It will be spot on for the bedroom, especially at that price

I don't have space in my bedroom for 40'.
I bought this yesterday, but when I got it home I found they'd actually given me a different model instead - I can't quite tell whether or not it's better than the one I should have got. It's this one: lg55uk6950plb
purchased, delivery tomorrow. topcashback available too. 1.2% minted :/

It's been great for PC gaming, I'm playing TT-Isle of Man, and it's really nice in 4K at 60Hz . So glad it's got a free sat receiver, Sky box booted out the door. I see from the specs that the 55" has an IPS panel, is that better than the VA?https://www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/b452121e


VA is usually better except for viewing angles which are better with IPS.

I thought LG used their own IPS panels in their TVs though, didn't know they used VA panels.

The 50" panels were different for some reason, as far as I can tell. displayspecifications.com/en/…21f

I looked at a couple of reviews which mention poor viewing angles so sounds like VA.

Wonder who makes them because I think LG only make IPS panels, possibly AUO who make some of Samsung's VA panels?

EDIT: Seems more likely to be from Innolux, another Taiwanese company who provide VA panels for Panasonic.

This or the Philips deal at Richer Sounds that is a top post right now?
Hi all, I'm after changing my 10 year old 50" LG and looking for a 55".
Don't do gaming etc, would just be for Freeview, football and watching films mainly.
Would this tv be better or this 1 richersounds.com/lg-…tml.
Would prefer to buy from richer sounds as 6 year warranty.
Cheers.

I guess education is quite poor in some parts, where are you from?

If the brightness of a screen is not an issue then a CCFL backlit TV to you is just as good as a LED backlit one.

QLED is better than regular LED Backlit televisions.
OLED is better than QLED.
MicroLED is better than OLED, but we are a few years away from those.
Is it just a years warranty with this?

Thanks.
Gutted. Might be a deal breaker for me.
Why don't richer sounds do this model!

Apparently the LG 50 inch panels are VA and the 49 inch ones are IPS.
